WordPress Cache and How It Can Improve Your Website Speed

15 MIN READ

Nearly half of the World Wide Web is powered by WordPress, but somehow there’s a common misconception that WordPress websites are slow and laggy. In this article, we’ll give you full information about one of the techniques that can highly improve your website performance, WordPress caching. Caching is a technique that allows you to store the result of a long-running task in a fast access memory, and then reuse that result without actually doing the task. This means that cached content is displayed a lot faster than content that’s loaded directly from the server. It’s like memorizing your multiplication tables. Once you have memorized it, it’s so much faster to recite the answer to a multiplication problem off-hand than trying to calculate the answer all over again. Caching can be performed in different stages of a running web application, so every stage is called a cache layer. We’ll go through…

16 MIN READ

Are you looking for a good HostGator review? Well, ask and you shall receive. But first, let’s look into why you should be looking for HostGator alternatives. Here’s the thing about HostGator: it lures you in with it’s unbelievably cheap prices and then pulls the rug out from under your feet, when you realize that those prices are not real.
