Using wp-rocket to speed up your wordpress site

Caching strategy for your website

Caching is one of the key elements of performing software. There are many ways to apply caching in software. But essentially, what caching means is for your servers to remember what calculations they did before. There may be some expensive calculations that may need to happen for a software function to do its job. But if calculated once, with the right caching strategies, it can store and remember that expensive calculation at a much faster speed.
