Even though the above plugins do what they promise to do, this is not enough to fully optimize a website.
While I knew about this, I left it untouched for a long time.
How we met
I didn’t know what it was so I checked it out, and as it turned out it is a WordPress caching plugin.
I decided to give it a try, it promised a whole lot more optimization options than WP Super Cache which I was using at the time.
Options include the below and the list goes on. For me it is the most comprehensive caching & optimization plugin that I know of .
You can check out the full list features on this page: https://wp-rocket.me/features.
WHW’s speed increased significantly after setting it up.
Please see below test performed through GTMetrix. Previously these indicators were around 80% and 70%.
Results speak for themselves.
The story doesn’t end here. The settings are quite extensive as can be seen below.
I wouldn’t go into the more advanced settings, but we have the opportunity to give custom rules on caching and the other optimization types on a bulk basis or on a page/post basis.
All in all, I highly recommend this plugin for everyone who wants a more efficient and fast website.
Once you give this plugin a shot, the only question you’ll be asking is why didn’t you came across this a year ago. This is why I love and host this site with A2hosting – they provide all the help to create a fast website.
