The Website caching feature is quite commonly used when developing websites; this is a feature that allows for the temporary storage of web documents. The caching includes HTML pages as well as images and reduces the server lag. Web caching is a core feature of the HTTP protocol. Caching occurs at all levels of the content’s journey from the original server to the browser. However, caching is more efficient if the request is fulfilled closer to the user, rather than from the web server.
There are many benefits of website caching as mentioned here:
– Content caching decreases the network costs in many ways. If the content is cached closer the user the HTTP requests, the network activity is greatly reduced since there are not many additional requests.
– Cached content is easier to retrieve; what this means is that the content can be retrieved faster and hence improve the responsiveness.
– In the case where there is a network interruption, if cache content has been implemented the user will still be able to view the content.
There are several elements of the website that can be cached. In fact, almost all elements of the webpage can be cached. Although some elements are easier to cache than others. The elements that can be cached include the logo, brand images, style sheets, and even the general JavaScirpt files. The media files and downloadable content can also be cached.
A website template is referred to as the user interface. A dynamic website consists of the design and user interface and the underlying functionality. The websites are developed using PHP and this mainly includes the functionality, however the user interface is equally important for a successful website. Some of the frameworks have a custom method of implementing the website template while others use simple HTML.
