Don’t let slow load times affect your business

WooCommerce sites are very demanding as they generate a lot of data, as well as un-cachable requests, which means you need robust PHP and database resources in place. It is important when choosing WooCommerce hosting that you choose a container-based host that is built for infinite scaling.

“The COO contacted me with an actual solution instead of lot of “trust us” fluff I was getting elsewhere. He was honest and straight-forward which was very refreshing. After migration, support was handled by the CEO who made some excellent suggestions and tweaks which dramatically improved performance.”
– Caleb Worm, Swagway.com

Kinsta optimizes for WooCommerce

Our WordPress team deals with optimizing high traffic WooCommerce sites on a daily basis. We have seen it all. Here are just a few ways we go further to find the perfect balance between performance and functionality:

  • Fast server-level caching in place with rules to ensure proper WooCommerce functionality.
  • By default, certain WooCommerce pages like cart, my-account, and checkout, are excluded from caching.
  • Users automatically bypass the cache when the “woocommerce_items_in_cart cookie” is detected to ensure a smooth and in-sync checkout process.
  • Ability to programmatically purge individual URLs using the kinsta-cache/purge_list filter.
  • Programmatic purging can also be done via cURL by calling a URL with a prefix provided by our support engineers.
