A cache file is a temporary data file which basically increases the loading speed of a particular website. Cache file gets downloaded to your computer when you visit a particular website for the first time. You must have noticed that a website loads at a much faster speed on a browser who has accessed it earlier in comparison to those who are accessing it for the very first time. This is because of cache data. Once cache files of a website are downloaded and saved in the browser, there is no need to download it again if it is not deleted. This makes the loading process faster.
However in some cases, these cache files get damaged, this might affect the website performance. To resolve this issue, you need to clear the stored cache data of that specific website.
