Bluehost has its own server caching feature, which is pretty good from what I could notice so far.


I haven’t worked much with Bluehost because it’s not on my WordPress recommended resources list, so I direct my clients to other WordPress web hosts.

Anyway, if you want to turn off Bluehost’s caching to use another tool, such as WP Rocket (affiliate link), or for other reasons, then I’ll show you how to do it!


Turn Off Bluehost Caching

Note: This is based on Bluehost’s shared hosting!

Step 1

Log in to your hosting account.


Step 2

Go to My Sites.

bluehost my sites

Step 3

Hover over your site’s box and click on Manage Site.


Final step

Go to Performance and select Caching Off.

That’s it!

Depending on what type of caching Bluehost uses, you could keep it enabled and use a caching plugin as well, without creating any conflict.

For example, I’m using WP Rocket + the Memcached feature from SiteGround (affiliate link), because WP Rocket doesn’t have that.

I contacted Bluehost’s support team to find out more about their caching system, but, let’s just say that the communication wasn’t the best. :)

I managed to find out that they use Varnish, though, but no more details.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you found the guide useful, and you managed to disable caching in Bluehost!
