There are many ways you can improve your website load time. Optimizing the images or removing the unnecessary fonts and elements could bring some improvements, however, website caching will do the job better.
When a request comes to your website, your backend requires some time to process the request and return an HTML. But if your website is cached on the server-side, your backend is not getting involved in serving the request anymore.
Good news is that Ucraft has brought up its own caching mechanism, which means you don’t need to worry about all the technical side of caching.
Our caching mechanism temporarily stores your Ucraft pages’ HTML server-side and serves directly to your visitors in almost no time.
If the caching mechanism is enabled on your website, the system will cache your public pages until the next change has been applied.
In order to avoid outdated content, we also brought the ‘Clear Cache’ button to your Edit modes. Click on the Publish App on your Left Panel and you'll notice the list of all the domains currently attached to your Ucraft website with a small ‘Clear Cache’ button. Once clicked, the system will clear your website cache on our servers (both Desktop and Mobile views) and will wait until the next public request to your website to re-cache the pages again.
Please note that all content types that require separate publishing, like Articles and eCommerce products, are not being cached on our servers to ensure we are serving the right content.
- In addition, caching does NOT apply to your websites with Ucraft subdomains and only works with your Custom Domain.
