Browser Cache Expiration Time

Published on December 27th, 2017

As STORM is all about performance and faster loading web sites we’ve had some feedback from some users about setting expiration times on static files. This is actually pretty important to improve your Google Page Speed Score and improve page load times. By setting a Browser Cache Expiration Time it sets the amount of time a static file, like images Javascript and CSS, on your visitor’s computer before requesting a fresh copy. If a visitor is browsing through multiple pages with the same files it can make a significant saving.

We’ve therefore made it really easy to set the Browser Cache Expiration time with just a drop down menu.¬†This feature is available under Configuration of each web site. At the moment this feature is only available if you have NGINX set to serve your static files. However we are looking to expand this functionality shortly to include Apache too. The default cache time is 1 month although can be changed from Never to 12 Months.
