FlyCache + CDN

Get crazy fast load times around the world

Sit back, relax, and watch your site load in subseconds!

When you create a fresh new site on Flywheel, you can be confident that you’re getting a super fast site right out of the gate, thanks to our free (!) built-in CDN and FlyCache technology. You’ll get world-class performance out of even the highest traffic sites, without ever touching a caching plugin.

FlyCache

Get blazing fast speeds with zero configuration!

FlyCache is Flywheel’s proprietary caching engine, specifically designed to make WordPress sites fly. It’s especially powerful because it works side-by-side with our CDN to serve up cached content from global points of presence (POP). When your users hit your site, they receive those files from the server that is geographically closest to them, which decreases load time, improves performance, and ensures all users have the same high-quality digital experience (no matter where they’re located)!

  • Intelligent
    Exclusions

    FlyCache automatically applies caching exclusions for common WordPress plugins. No need to write into support or manually configure it yourself!

  • Support For Woocommerce & Membership Sites

    FlyCache creates far better setups for WooCommerce and membership sites on Flywheel. Certain paths on these sites are un-cached by default, so you won’t wind up with weird cart issues or funny 500 errors.

  • Customizable For
    Your Needs

    Because we built it ourselves, FlyCache gives us the freedom to specify exceptions and customize caching rules for your sites. We can uncache specific paths, file types, and URLs; just work with our team if you need something special!


Global CDN

powered by 

Get closer to your users with global availability

  • Full-page Caching

    Unlike traditional CDNs that only cache site assets (*.css, *.js, etc.), our CDN offers full-page caching, which includes the full HTML of your pages. This vastly improves your time to first byte (which is super good for SEO)!

  • Industry Leading Technology

    Fastly is an industry leading CDN provider trusted by some of the biggest sites in the world: BuzzFeed, the New York Times, Yelp, Pinterest, Twitter, and more. Now, your site can leverage those resources!
