By storing data in cache and serving it from cache when requested, we save the time needed to generate the data. That is what makes caching a cheap and effective way to improve the performance of your web store.
Speeding up websites is important – not just to site owners, but to all Internet users. Faster sites create happy users, Google internal studies show. When a site responds slowly, visitors spend less time there. Faster sites don’t just improve user experience; improving site speed also reduces operating costs. That is why Google considers site speed when ranking websites and determining how many pages to crawl.
Prestashop Full Page Cache not only improves your ranking in search engines, but also enhances user experience on your store. Try it now!

BelVG dept of testing has conducted a research on the website request time, with and without the BelVG Full Page Cache installed. The Apache JMeter™, a Java application, simulating a heavy load on a server to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types, was used for the research.
Average website response time without Full Page Cache installed made up 10 seconds. Average website response time with Full Page Cache installed amounted to 5.5 seconds, which is half as less!
