Speed up your website using browser caching

To speed up your website, it is possible to make use of browser caching. You can instruct your visitors browser to, for example, only check changes in jpeg-files once every month. By default this is not enabled on our shared hosting packages, but you can easily turn it on for your own website.

Create a new file called .htaccess in the httpdocs folder of your website, containing the lines below. If you already have an existing .htaccess file, you can add these lines to it:

<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/html "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 month"
ExpiresDefault "access 1 month"
Ofcourse it is possible to change the cache times as desired, or remove rules. For example, if you do not wish to cache PNG files, remove the line containing image/png
