How to Flush WordPress Caching Plugins?

Approx. read time : 3 min

WordPress offers a collection of plugins for caching your websites. It is one of the website optimization techniques that improve the loading speeds of your site. Caching makes a static copy of your otherwise dynamic site and reduces the time intervals for server rendering.

The cache of these plugins requires regular clearing as it may continue to display the old version of your website to the visitors.
