Based on Caching Neighborhood Protocol (CNP), we proposed a Web caching scheme featuring dynamic caching hierarchies as its underlying infrastructure . Dynamic Web caching hierarchies consist of proxy servers building hierarchies on a per request basis, in contrast to static Web caching hierarchies that comprise proxy servers preconfigured into hierarchies. Concerns on overheads and efficiency in forwarding requests individually drove conventional Web caching schemes to use static Web caching hierarchies. Nevertheless, we showed that a Web caching scheme featuring dynamic caching hierarchies could be both efficient and effective in request forwarding.
