Caching Plugin

You can use 3rd party plugin to add caching to your WordPress site. It helps speed up response time to your visitors. Here are 2 plugins we recommend.

  1. W3 Total Cache – Recommend for advanced user with many more options.
  2. WP Super Cache – Easy to setup caching plugin. Recommend for normal user.

Leverage Browser Caching

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age for static resources ex. images to instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network. To do this simply add cache-control headers to origin server by adding the following code to server .htaccess file.

<filesMatch ".(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|svg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$">
 Header set Cache-Control "max-age=84600, public"
