If you need to clear the cache for one specific website in Chrome, Google has made this possible in the developer tools.

Although Chrome already has a built-in tool in settings that allows you to purge the cache from the last hour, 24 hours, 7 days, 4 weeks, or all time, they don’t make it easy for you to purge the cache for one particular website.

No other article shows you how to wipe the cache for one website, their steps are outdated, and they only show you how to clear cached images and file for every website you’ve visited.

Clear the Cache for one Website

  1. Go to the website you want to clear the cache for

ctrl shift i developer tools

  1. Hold Ctrl + Shift + I shortcut to open the Chrome developer tools

Empty Cache and Hard Reload

  1. Right-click the refresh button next to the address bar
  2. Click Empty Cache and Hard Reload in the options

The cache for the single website should clear in Chrome.

Remember that developer tools must be open for you to see the option when you right-click the refresh button.

If you do this without opening the developer tools, there won’t able any options available when you click the reload button.

This method is the only way to clear the cache for one website in Google Chrome – going to settings > Clear browsing data > Cached images and files wipes the cache for every site you’ve visited within a specific time frame, not a particular website.
