SuiteCommerce Web Stores

You can optimize your website and decrease page-loading time by caching data and site assets. Caching enables content that is used more than once to reload quickly, increasing site performance and user satisfaction.

Caching occurs:

  • On the Content Delivery Network (CDN)

  • In the user’s browser

  • For product merchandising rules

  • At the application level (for some previous implementations of SuiteCommerce Advanced)

See the following topics for more information about caching:

  • CDN Caching – These topics explain how to optimize your website and decrease page-loading time by caching data and site assets on the CDN available with SuiteCommerce web stores. After you set up CDN cache, data and site assets that are reused across your web store are always cached. 

  • Cache Invalidation – Once your data is cached, it usually remains in the cache until it expires. These topics describe how to set up automatic or manual cache clearing, prior to data expiration, for when cached data changes at the source or when it should no longer be cached.

  • CDN for Secure Domains – As CDN caching occurs on third-party servers, only content for which security is not of primary importance should be cached. This topic lists factors you should be aware of when using CDN caching for secure checkout domains.

  • Product Merchandising Rule Caching – This topic describes how to reduce the default cache time before a new product merchandising rule becomes active.
