Definition of Caching

Caching is the process of storing frequently used data in a temporary storage space to improve website performance and stability.

Caching can reduce load times, decrease server resource consumption, and improve user experience as they are not forced to wait for requests to be processed each time they access a page.

By storing commonly used information, webpages can also be served to users much faster than if the same data needed to be re-requested or otherwise fetched from its original source.
