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
WP Speed of light for WordPress comes with a lot of optimization systems such as cache system, Gzip data compression, browser caching, and resources minification. WP Speed of Light 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!
Check WordPress Speed and Compare
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
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.
Automatic WordPress Cache Cleaner
A cache cleaning system is available to clean it automatically at regular intervals. If you prefer not to wait, a button to run a custom clean from everywhere (every admin and public pages) is also available! Plus, you have setting to exclude admin user from cache and to exclude specific pages from being cached.
A Dashboard to Rule All the Performance
A dashboard is available to check all major performance issues you have and fix them in one click, pretty handy to optimize performance in no time.
