How does caching work in WordPress?
- views 1101
I have a site on Wordpress. If I install a plugin for caching (W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache or WP-Rocket) how will styles and scripts be downloaded in the browser? Will they be downloaded over and over, or will they be cached? Please tell me what to do.Solutions (1)
Sample WP scheme of work when the cache module:
1. The requested page is generated by the visitor site engine.
2. Before the impact of hosts, it is processed using a caching plugin: it creates a complete copy in a static format. That is created html-page with all the links to the necessary resources to this page: images, script files, style sheets, etc.
3. Formed page is put into a special folder within your site.
4. All the necessary resources for proper operation of the page (images, styles files, etc.) are also caching and also placed in a special folder.
5. User which requests the page receives it in a static form. 6. All subsequent calls to this page from any engine redirects visitors to this static page. In fact caching executes at the server level. Caching executes only once, until the cache is cleared. The frequency of cleaning the cache is configured in the plugin. To cache site in the user`s browser is necessary to use other server features. Look for information on the topic "mod_expires", I think this is exactly what you are looking for.Answers (2)The primary way these plug-ins work is to create static HTML pages instead of dynamic php WordPress pages, then they are cached and shown to the visitors. Typically data plugins have a lot of options, but this is the main function.Typically, the operating principle for caching plugins is the following: create static html files (copies of pages on WordPress) and save them in the cache (for example, WP Super Cache plugin) - /wp-content/cache/supercache/. When a user visits a page on your website, WordPress gives the browser beforehand a saved copy from the cache (instead of having to create a page from scratch).

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.
For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.
CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.
Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.
Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.
OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.
Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.
Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.
Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.
DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.
Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.
ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.
The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.
Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
