What is Cache?
The cache is temporary storage where your data will remain for some time to serve faster. The cache does not disturb the server every time and serves the data from its memory to increase the page speed.
After opening an app or website for the first time, a cache stashes files, images, and other pertinent data on your device.
How does cache work?
When you open a website a process is created on the server and the server responds according to it. Like you search for a page and when you reach that your server will fork a process and show it to you. But when cache comes in it will not allow the user to reach the server. When someone asks for any website page or something cache server it from its temporary memory.
The request is served by the cache instead of the direct server.
Top 5 cache plugins:
Here we will discuss the top five means the leader’s plugins of the caching market.
LSCWP features exclusive server-level caching, an all-in-one plugin for site acceleration, performance optimization, user experience improvement, and much more. The LSCache was introduced in version 4.0 and is a cache server in the Lighttpd web server. It is based on apache mod_cache and can be used for dynamic content like PHP scripts as well as static content like HTML. The inevitable peculiarity of the LSCache is that it uses rewrite rules for better flexibility. These rewrite rules are implemented either in configuration files or in .htaccess files of each website.
Caching plugin WP Rocket is the most advanced and comprehensive in the market. It offers a complete set of tools to make your website faster and more efficient. WP Rocket has more speed features than most other cache plugins. That’s why you usually get better results in Lighthouse and GTmetrix, compared to other speed plugins.
WP Super Cache
WP Super Cache is a static caching plugin for WordPress that generates HTML files that are served directly by Apache, without processing comparatively heavy PHP scripts. This plugin is a fork of the excellent WP-Cache 2 by Ricardo Galli Granada. It caches the pages of your WordPress blog and delivers them without accessing the database.
W3 total Cache
W3 Total Cache is used on popular sites like Matt Cutt’s blog, CSS-Tricks, and WPBeginner. It is recommended by well-known hosts like HostGator. It offers caching abilities like Page Cache, Database Cache, Browser Cache, Object Cache, CDN integration, and more. For most beginners, this just sounds like a bunch of mumble-jumble. So let us explain it a little bit more.
SG Optimizer’s settings now have nearly every feature as WP Rocket. Since SG Optimizer 5.6, they added heartbeat control, database cleanup, and prefetching external domains. Combined with the 5.0 update, SG Optimizer officially makes WP Rocket obsolete when using SiteGround.
