Static Cache Enabled On All Shared Accounts
Starting this month, all shared hosting accounts come with Static SuperCacher enabled by default. Previously, the Static cache option of our SuperCacher that uses the ever more popular Varnish technology was only available on our GrowBig and GoGeek plans. As of now, all shared hosting plans have it ON by default, with no action on your part needed. Static cache takes a copy of your static website content (images, css, javascripts, flash, etc.) and puts it into the servers’ RAM memory, so that the next time that content is requested, it would be loaded dramatically faster than loading it from the servers' hard drives. That officially makes all SiteGround-hosted websites faster than ever. For more information on how our Static Cache works, check out our handy tutorial.
