Kinsta Provides 80% Faster Web Pages With Edge Caching

Edge Caching delivers your webpages to your visitors faster and reduces the number of server requests. No setup is needed, we handle everything automatically.

Cached HTML Worldwide

By using a CDN you place only your static assets — like images and files containing CSS, JavaScript, and fonts — in the 260+ POP locations around the globe.

With the Kinsta Edge Caching solution, pages cached in your site’s local data center are distributed across that same network, delivering that cached HTML worldwide.

Edge Caching can deliver your site’s pages to your visitors faster and reduce the number of server requests. Edge caching does for the HTML of pages what Kinsta’s CDN does for those static assets.

Powered by Cloudflare

The Kinsta CDN and Edge Caching is powered by Cloudflare the world’s largest network powering nearly 20% of the web with 260+ locations around the globe.

When your site visitors load your website, cached responses will be delivered from one of the 260+ locations closest to them.

Instant Performance Gains

Testing hundreds of sites in data centers around the world, we found that, on average, Kinsta Edge Caching reduced the time required to deliver full pages by more than 50%!

Edge Caching cut TTFB by an average of nearly 48.6%, and the time to transfer complete pages dropped by almost 54.4%!

There is more! We found dramatic performance improvements when Edge Caching narrowed the gap between browsers and more-distant origin servers, making the feature more appealing if you target a global audience. Here are some results:

Early Hints

As part of Kinsta’s Cloudflare integration, Early Hints can be enabled for your WordPress site in MyKinsta. Early Hints is a web standard you can implement to improve page load times by up to 30%.

Thanks to Early Hints the browser can begin preparing the page before it receives the 200 OK response from the server. This allows the browser to efficiently prepare the page for loading resulting in faster load times.

Is Kinsta Edge Caching the Same as Cloudflare’s APO?

Yes and no. Here’s what sets Kinsta Edge Caching apart:

No extra fees.
No need for a cache-management plugin.
Seamless integration with the MyKinsta dashboard.
One platform to manage CDN and Edge Caching.

Is Edge Caching free and included in all plans?

Yes, no need to pay extra, you can activate it on all your WordPress sites for free.

Can I turn Edge Caching off?

Yes, you can easily turn it off within your MyKinsta dashboard.

Does Edge Caching work for mobile devices?

Yes, you can click the “Enable Mobile Cache” button to take advantage of Edge Caching for mobile devices but you don’t need to enable mobile caching if your website design supports both desktop and mobile browsers with the same responsive HTML/CSS markup.

Can I clear Edge Caching?

Yes, you can clear caching from your WordPress admin or from the MyKinsta dashboard.

I have my own Cloudflare account and I use Cloudflare APO. Should I enable Edge Caching?

If you use your own Cloudflare account for your site, you can use Edge Caching if you do not use Cloudflare’s Automatic Platform Optimizations (APO). These two caching methods are incompatible, so you’ll want to use one or the other, not both.

Is Edge Caching available for my applications?

Not yet, but we are already working on this.

Is the Early Hints feature available for all WordPress sites?

Yes, Early Hints is free and included in all plans. You can turn it on and off and use it combined with the Edge Caching solution.
