What is caching (in brief)
You want your visitors to have a good user experience, and for that, it is necessary for your website to load quickly. Utilewebsites can host your website so that it is optimized to load quickly for all visitors or we can think with you how to speed up your existing website at the server level and code level. Besides speeding up the website, caching also reduces the load on your server.
Cache (temporary memory)
A cache (pronounced kesh or kash, from the English word "cache," stock or store) is a repository in which data is temporarily stored to allow faster access to it. Essential of a cache is also that it is transparent in the sense that when data is retrieved, it is not visible whether it is retrieved from the original source or retrieved from the cache, apart from the short access time.
Storing data on a faster medium to access it faster is called caching. The term cache is usually used for both the data being cached and the repository where this data is cached.

WordPress has several plugins that allow you to cache your site. Below we highlight 2 plugins.
Wp Fastest Cache : This plugin is quite easy to install and configure. For most sites, everything will render super fast in no time

WP Rocket (premium)
Cache Enabler (free)
