What is Cache?

Caching solutions provide the opportunity to speed up website loading time. While every time a user wants to visit a website, the website has to be recreated, caching removes that necessity.

Cache solutions save a copy of the website so the next time a user visits a web page, the copy is sent to the user, speeding up the entire process. As everyone knows, a speedy process keeps the website visitors coming back.

What Makes LSCache Special?

LiteSpeed server products all ship with an LSCache engine. This module powers the caching and purging of content through the use of rewrite rules and HTTP headers.

A fast site is especially important for visitor retention and for search engine page ranking! Through the LSCache module, LiteSpeed servers store snapshots of dynamically-generated content. Without these snapshots, the server would need to undertake a resource-intensive process of regenerating the content for every visitor request. Caching is a simple, but highly effective way to serve a site quickly and efficiently.

LSCache is flexible and customizable, making it the ideal solution for accelerating all kinds of web-based content. LiteSpeed offers a range of plugins for popular web apps like WordPress and Joomla, as well as guidance for developers who would like to create LSCache extensions for their bespoke applications.
