  3. Plugin caching (a plugin like wp-rocket, fastest cache, w3Cache etc). 
  4. Server-side caching (Plesk, cPanel, Webmin etc.) - Consult hosting company knowledge base or support. 
  5. CDN caching (Cloudflare, AWS Cloudfront, Max CDN etc.) Note: this can take up to 30 min to reflect changes.

We recommend that you keep all caching deactivated while you are developing a website. Save yourself a lot of time and effort.
