WP Speed of Light - Speed Up WordPress

By default, WordPress does not have a system for speed optimization. That's why a powerful plugin that speeds up WordPress with technical and advanced features, yet accessible to everyone is a necessity.  WP Speed of Light comes with a cache and Gzip compression system, and includes, a resource minification tool, a database cleanup system, a htaccess optimization tool and  an automatic cache cleaner. 

When it comes to measuring performance loading time, it requires some test to identify which plugin, theme or page may require more attention. WP Speed of Light includes a speed loading test and comparison tool, alongside a database query speed test. Give a comfortable navigation experience to your users and get a better search engine rank!

The WordPress Speed Optimization, Live


Powerful WordPress and Browser Caching

Static cache for WordPress

WP Speed of light for WordPress comes with a lot of optimization systems such as cache system: it generates more static content (HTML) therefore reducing the number of database queries required to load the page. Plus, you have the possibility of storing the major part of the heavy page resources (like images) in the browser cache. And you can clean it when you want! Full optimization list:

  • Static file cache system
  • Gzip data compression
  • Browser caching
  • Files group
  • Resources minification
  • Specific mobile cache per device
  • Remove query string


Check WordPress Speed and Compare

Speed test for WordPress

The optimization of a website is also about testing the performance to determine what elements can be optimized to yield performance. With WP Speed of Light you can run several tests on the same page and open a comparison table. We've made an integration with WebPageTest API (free) to run detailed speed tests on various elements like: 

  • First loading time
  • Second loading time
  • First byte time
  • Time to start rendering
  • Element served from cache in %
  • Elements compressed with Gzip in %
  • Percent on compressed images


Database Speed Test

Database query analysis

The database queries can represent something important about WordPress' speed. The database speed test may help you to determine problems with a theme or a plugin and fix some major performance issues.
