Fastly overview

Fastly’s edge cloud platform enhances web and mobile delivery by accelerating dynamic assets and caching unpredictably changing content.

Faster page loads

Poor web and mobile performance can negatively impact customer conversion and retention rates, SEO, and advertising revenue.

Fastly’s edge cloud platform accelerates your web and mobile applications while Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) speeds up content delivery.

Fastly allows you to keep more in cache for longer and retrieve it quicker for faster page load times.

Fastly caching and purging

Caching and purging

Fastly’s caching and purging technology allows you to cache and invalidate WordPress content almost as soon as it’s updated on your origin — within 150 milliseconds or less across their global network. This is considerably faster than other CDNs.

Anytime your files change or anytime a WordPress post or page is updated, Fastly retrieves an updated copy from your origin server and serves it as soon as it’s live on your web server.

Dynamic Site Acceleration

Fastly’s world-class Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) speeds up requests and responses between cache nodes in their points of presence (POPs) and WPhost’s Cloud Platform, so your web and mobile content is served faster.

Fastly keeps connections between cache nodes and your origin open (or “hot”) so traffic can flow without incurring latency penalties for constantly setting up new connections.

Fastly’s advanced algorithms route traffic along the optimal path between their POPs and your origin.

Fastly static content delivery

Static content delivery

Fastly’s edge cloud excels at caching static content, whether it’s images, JavaScript, CSS, or larger objects like downloads, music, video, or PDF files.

Fastly’s powerful edge cloud platform allows them to cache more objects for longer and retrieve them faster.

You’ll achieve better cache hit ratios, translating to quicker response times and downloads for your web and mobile users.
