The term caching describes the temporary storage of data.

Tasks on the Web

Dynamic websites (based on databases or CMS), unlike static HTML files, have a disadvantage in loading content. The reason for this is the separate retrieval of data from the database. Caching can compensate for this loading time and increase the performance of the website. Data is temporarily stored within a buffer memory, which enables high-performance data retrieval.


Especially websites with complex content and high traffic benefit from caching. Due to the reduced loading time, dynamic websites also benefit in relation to the ranking, since search engines include the factor loading time in the ranking weight.
