Leverage Browser Cashing

Leverage Browser Cashing is kind of instruction manual for web browsers.

To understand it we need to understand that how our website works. We need to open our website in a web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc). Now the web browser loads our website as per our website code, it loads our logo, our css files, js file, etc.

The purpose of Leverage Browser Cashing is to instruct web browsers not to reload everything next time our website loads, it help reduce our website loading time. First time it will take time as per our contents but next time our website will open faster.

How we do this?

We do this in a file called .htaccess, we need to place this file in our root directory as well. This file can have a big impact on your website, so if you are not familiar about it, please study or ask someone to do it for you.

I am giving you the code which you need to add into your .htaccess file, simply add following to code .htaccss file and save it. Upload it to your website root directory and you are good to go.
