Caching makes sites load super fast by saving snapshots of pages instead of dynamically building them from the server each time a visitor views the page.
FlyCache is Flywheel’s proprietary caching engine, specifically designed to make WordPress sites fly! It includes intelligent exclusions for popular WordPress plugins and supports e-commerce and membership sites.
While caching is great, not everything on a site should be cached. For example, if you are running a store on your site, each user will need their own individual cart. Because of this, we have special rules in place to help your site load fast while still respecting the needs of the plugins on your site.
For a complete list of default exclusions, please visit this page.
Smart Refresh is a new feature that we are rolling out to sites on our Flywheel Cloud Platform, that ensures your visitors will see the most recent content on your site.
If you make changes to your pages or posts, we will automatically clear them from the cache leaving the rest of your site’s cache intact and loading fast.
You can find more on Smart Refresh here.
