Leapjuice Caching and CDN

We utilize server caching and a CDN to massively boost performance.

Server Caching and Content Distribution Network (CDN)

We use server caching and a CDN to massively boost the performance of your CMS platform, which also improves SEO and enhances the customer experience. We also use both Nginx caching as well as object caching, and both optimizations dramatically improve Ghost and WordPress.

What is server caching?

Server caching is a technique that stores a copy of a webpage in the server’s memory, so that the next time a user requests the same page, it can be served directly from the cache, rather than being generated dynamically by the server. This can significantly improve the performance of a website, as it reduces the amount of time and resources needed to generate each page.

Server caching is especially beneficial for WordPress and Ghost websites, as it can help to reduce the load on the server and improve the overall speed and performance of the site. When a WordPress website receives a lot of traffic, the server can become overwhelmed and unable to generate pages quickly enough to keep up with the demand. Caching can help to alleviate this issue by storing frequently requested pages in the cache, allowing the server to respond more quickly to user requests.

In addition to improving performance, server caching can also help to reduce the amount of bandwidth used by a website, as it reduces the number of requests that need to be sent to the server. This can help to lower hosting costs and make the website more efficient overall.

Both redis and memcached are also available for use on your Leapjuice Managed Hosting server.

What is a CDN?

A CDN, or content delivery network, is a network of servers that are distributed across different locations, usually around the world. The purpose of a CDN is to deliver content to users more efficiently, by serving it from a server that is closer to the user’s location.

A CDN works by storing copies of a website’s static content (such as images, CSS files, and JavaScript files) on its servers. When a user accesses a website that is using a CDN, the CDN will serve the static content from the server that is closest to the user, rather than from the origin server. This can significantly improve the loading speed of a website, as it reduces the distance that the data needs to travel.

Both WordPress and Ghost websites can benefit from using a CDN. In particular, if your website receives a lot of traffic from users in different locations around the world, a CDN can help to improve the loading speed and overall performance of your site by serving content from a nearby server. Additionally, a CDN can help to reduce the load on your origin server, which can be especially useful if you are using a shared hosting plan.

Our Managed WordPress and Managed Ghost CMS hosting plans also include a CDN with SSL certificate. We utilize Google Cloud CDN along with the same premium edge computing network that Google uses. 

Since our managed hosting platform is built on Google Cloud, the content distribution network (CDN) is native to your server infrastructure, which streamlines your entire technology stack.
