CachingWeb caching is a technique used to store copies of web resources (such as HTML pages, images, stylesheets, and scripts) at various points in the network infrastructure, closer to the end users. The cached copies can be served quickly and efficiently to subsequent requests, reducing the load on the origin server and improving overall website performance.
Web caching plays a crucial role in optimizing website performance, reducing bandwidth usage, and improving user experience. By serving cached copies of resources, it minimizes the need for repeated network requests and reduces the time required to fetch and transmit data. However, it is important to consider cache invalidation strategies and properly configure caching headers to ensure that updated resources are promptly reflected to users.
