By serving cached pages as close as possible to the physical location of your users, load times are reduced to an absolute minimum. Everyone can experience a site that feels lightweight and snappy, regardless of where in the world they are.
By ensuring that your site’s most important pages are cached by a CDN or reverse proxy, the site remains available even if the web server experiences technical issues, goes down or is taken offline during site maintenance.
Since the load on your web server is greatly reduced, you can deliver large amounts of content to large amounts of traffic that originate from anywhere in the world, using much more inexpensive servers.
Cache Igniter helps ensure that your site’s cache remains warm on global CDNs and reverse proxies such as Cloudflare, CloudFront, KeyCDN, Fastly, Varnish, etc. This improves page load times and reduces the load on your web server, especially during periods of high traffic.
With a global CDN such as Cloudflare caching your site, page load times are greatly reduced and are consistent across geographic locations. When the cache is warm (as opposed to cold or empty), requests are served by the CDN’s edge node that is closest to the user and never reach the origin web server, as indicated by the
HIT cache status above.
This results in consistently low page load times around the globe.
