LiteMage 2 for Magento 2

LiteMage 2 was built from the ground up to accelerate your Magento 2.x store. The new design uses browser cache to store private data. Simplify your stack and achieve greater performance gains than with Magento's built-in PageCache or Varnish!

Why Use LiteMage

LiteMage is your go-to performance solution for steady everyday loads and major traffic spikes alike. With its highly-customizable tag-based cache-management system, LiteMage ensures your store's pages are always served fast and fresh.

  •  Hole Punching

    Edge Side Includes (ESI) engine for hole punching.

  •  Customizable

    Configurable punched holes mapped to blocks defined in the Magento page layout.

  •  Public and Private Cache

    Main page and public blocks are cached once and served to all users. Private blocks are cached per-user and served only to that user.

  •  Low Overhead

    Retrieve multiple blocks per request, minimizing the overhead of building multi-block pages.

  •  Bypass the Backend

    Support for Last Viewed Product (this can be turned off for even faster speeds), Product Comparison, Stock Tracking and other features requiring communication with the Magento backend.

  •  Navigation Options

    Support for layered navigation, category filtering, product toolbar options (view as, sort by and show per page) functionality.

  •  Multiple Views

    Support for multi-store, multi-currency, and multi-user groups.

  •  AJAX Support

    Support for extensions using AJAX based cart.

  •  Crawler

    Built-in crawler to keep the cache warm.


Internet shoppers are impatient, many of them not waiting more than 5 seconds for a page to load! With LiteMage added to your Magento store, you can keep potential customers' attention right from the first page load.

Compare the page load time of LiteSpeed Web Server with LiteMage against other web servers and cache solutions, and see the LiteMage difference for yourself!



We offer flexible pricing of LiteMage so you can choose the best fit for your needs.



How Does LiteMage Cache Compare to Other Page Caching Solutions?

  • Varnish-based solutions

    (Turpentine, etc.)

    • Complicated to set up.
    • Requests dynamic blocks individually, multiplying the high cost of Magento framework initialization. Can make a cached page even slower than an uncached page.
    • No SSL support. Frontend proxy server required to support HTTPS, adding even more layers.
    • Uses AJAX, which lowers overall server performance.
  • Solution for Magento

    (Litemage Cache)

    • All content can be assembled from cache, even per-user, private blocks, for best performance.
    • Multiple blocks are called for in a single request, lowering overhead.
    • Native SSL support.
    • Supremely scalable — handles 10,000's of connections without missing a beat.
    • Built-in extra anti-DDoS features protect you from attacks.
    • Suitable for Shared Hosting and clustered environments.
  • PHP-based solutions

    (Full Page Cache)

    • Content is cached by PHP, so all pages are still generated dynamically by PHP. PHP is a heavy language and overall scalability is thus limited by PHP scalability.
    • Reliance on PHP causes generally slower page load times.
    • Limits in PHP scalability make PHP solutions vulnerable to DDoS attacks.

Case Studies

  • No Room To Optimize? Try LiteMage

    After trying every other optimization solution imaginable, Sustainable Furniture implemented LiteMage Cache with default settings and immediately saw their page load times drop to at least half of what they were previously.

  • LiteMage is Caching Made To Order

    Rafasshop were happy to find that, contrary to their past experience testing other caches with their highly complex site, LiteMage worked for them out-of-the-box without the need for any manual configuration.

    Aspiration Hosting
  • LiteMage Cache Drastically Improves Page Load Times

    With the same configuration and LiteMage active, the average response time dropped to an incredible 0.12 seconds with the shortest transaction coming in at 0.06 seconds and the longest at 5.26 seconds (likely a page that was not cacheable). That is a 93.5% reduction in response time, over 15x's faster than before!
