Dynamic Content Caching

Dynamic content caching improves website performance and reduces server costs by serving HTML documents and other dynamic content from cache.

Caching dynamic content is one of the most effective methods of improving page speed.

Dynamic content including full HTML documents and personalized items like cart contents slow down page load time and increase load on your origin server. With section.io you can cache dynamic content to deliver faster page load times, reduced hosting costs, and improved overall user experience.

page load time

Improve your Time to First Byte.

Caching dynamic content including the full HTML document dramatically improves back end load time and Time to First Byte (TTFB). TTFB is a crucial metric as it means a page should be beginning to load and increases the likelihood that user engagement can occurs earlier.

search engine optimization

Achieve better SEO results.

Studies have shown that faster page load time improves search engine ranking, meaning your pages are more likely to show up in search results on Google and other search engines. Get a leg up on the competition by improving Time to First Byte and overall load time.

Global delivery network

Reduce your hosting costs.

By caching dynamic content in addition to static objects a large portion of your web pages will be served from cache, which reduces the number of requests made to your web servers. As a result of the decreased load on your origin servers you will experience lowered hosting costs.

improve conversion rate

Increase your conversion rates.

Faster pages lead to a decrease in bounce rate, increase in number of pages viewed, and increase in conversion rate. section.io customers have seen conversion rate improvement of 16.5% and over simply by improving page load time

section.io gives developers control over caching.

section.io gives developers full control over how to cache dynamic content and the ability to instantly clear cache when changes are made. Many websites do not cache dynamic content because it is risky to cache HTML documents and other dynamic content without visibility into how caching will perform in production or an adequate testing solution.

section.io solves these problems by providing code-level configuration over dynamic caching and a local development environment for testing cache configurations before they go live. This means with section.io you can cache more content, without risk of production issues, for better overall website performance.

section.io’s real-time metrics and logs also reduce the risk associated with caching a large amount of content on your website. By giving developers the ability to test before deployment and immediately identify issues via log management and real-time metrics, websites using section.io cache more content, scale faster, and block more threats than with any other solution.

Dynamic Caching: Technical Details

section.io offers several unmodified versions of the powerful caching software Varnish Cache for caching both static objects and dynamic content. Users can deploy section.io’s Edge PaaS Platform with Varnish Cache on the section.io global cloud, on premises, on a custom PoP network, and in section.io’s Developer PoP for local development and testing.

Edit and commit Varnish Cache Control Language (VCL) changes within the section.io portal to configure cache settings and take advantage of the flexibility Varnish Cache offers. Use Git to easily share changes across teams and rollback when necessary.
