How does the Static Cache work?

Our Static Cache is based on Varnish and caches all the static content of your website including your Images, CSS files, JavaScript files and plain HTML documents. Thus, your visitors load such content from the cache instead of the server directly. The cached copies are stored in RAM and they are delivered much faster because the RAM access time is hundreds of times faster than HDD access time. Static Cache optimises content delivery, speeds up sluggish sites and increases the number of hits a site can handle.

Static cache is automatically flushed each 24 hours, so that if there are changes made during this time they become available to your visitors. If you need you can also immediately flush the cache through the cPanel.

How to enable/disable the Static Cache?
