Light speed is the normal speed at WPhost

We use NGINX web servers to serve up static files, and to act as a reverse proxy to the processes that run PHP. NGINX also handles all of the rewrite rules associated with serving up WordPress websites – NGINX performance is significantly faster than Apache.

Server side, having a caching layer works amazingly well serving a WordPress site to your users super quickly. The most common way to enable server-side caching with WordPress is by using a plugin. However, an even better solution is to use an HTTP accelerator such as Varnish, which sits outside of WordPress.

No need for caching plugins

Using Varnish instead of a plugin can increase speeds dramatically because Varnish never has to execute PHP in order to work. Instead, Varnish caches pages that have been rendered by WordPress in memory and can serve them up at lightning speeds. If you’re hosted at WPhost, your site will be equipped with one of the fastest caching techniques available and you don’t even have to worry about setting any of it up!

Plus, WPhost servers are configured to automatically flush the cache anytime files change and anytime a post or page is updated. This way, you never have to worry about visitors seeing outdated content. What’s more, we configure everything, meaning you’ll never have to fuss with caching plugins again.
