Static Object and Image Caching

Static object and image caching improves page load time by serving static objects directly from cache without retrieving them from your web server.

Speed up your application with static caching.


By caching static objects websites can improve page load time for better user experience, and increased revenue. See how page speed improvements of just 1-2 seconds can lower bounce rate and increase page views.


page load time

Achive faster page load times.

Images and static objects make up a majority of your page load time, and caching these objects will dramatically speed up overall page load time. Users get a better on-page experience when pages load quickly, and are more likely to stay on the page and browse to additional pages.

search engine optimization

Get improved 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 static objects and images you will serve this content directly from the section.io 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.
