Frequently Asked Questions

Why don’t use a CDN?

CDNs can be a good tool for many, but the big problem is that CDNs drop unused content from their cache. Having your own ShimmerCat Accelerator Network means 100% of the content is always in cache, and there are no additional round trips to the origin server.

Why don’t you use Google AMP?

Google AMP only brings benefits when people visit your site from the Google search engine. And since most of the web traffic does not come from Google, AMP doesn’t really solve the problem. In the end it really only benefits Google and nobody else.

Does ShimmerCat replace CDNs?

Yes. The goal of ShimmerCat is that you can get something better than a CDN in terms of final website speed, reliability and cost, and with no integration nightmares.

How to update files?

ShimmerCat accesses files in the same way than your traditional web server, so get to update things in the same way you have been doing it so far.

Does ShimmerCat work with all setups?

Yes. Since ShimmerCat is simply put on top of your stack it can work with any setup and framework including PhP, Magento, Woocommerce, etc.

What compression format does ShimmerCat use?

ShimmerCat uses Brotli by default for compression of static assets, which compared to gzip is well worth the substantial file size savings.

How does ShimmerCat work with cookies?

With HTTP/2 Push, the server can do a good guess of what the client needs already from the first request, and send it to the browser. However, for a user that visits a site not­ for ­the ­first time, the server need to know what contents the browser keeps in cache from previous visits. Todo this, the standard is for the browser to communicate an overview of the contents of its cache explicitly. The mechanism is called “cache digests”, and it complements HTTP/2 Push.

What about SSL Certificates?

ShimmerCat does TLS termination and needs access to a SSL certificate for the served site. ShimmerCat combines the TLS and HTTP/2 fingerprints of the peer to do small adjustments specific to the visitor’s browser, and to help separate human and bot activity.
