WP Rocket Pro

Minimal Configuration, Immediate Results

Don’t waste your time struggling with complex plugin settings. WP Rocket launches upon activation.

Page Caching

Caching creates an ultra-fast load time, essential for improving Search Engine Optimization and increasing conversions. When you turn on WP Rocket, page caching is immediately activated.

Cache Preloading

Because our crawler simulates a visit to preload the cache, the indexing of your website by search engines is instantly improved.

Static Files Compression

WP Rocket reduces the weight of your HTML, JavaScript and CSS files through minification. Lighter files means faster load time!

Images on Request

Images are loaded only as your visitor scrolls down the page, improving the load time of the page. YouTube, Facebook, Yahoo and other major websites are using this technique. Now yours can too.

Developer Friendly

WP Rocket’s code is developed according to WordPress best practices. It is clean, commented and has loads of hooks so developers can easily make advanced customizations.
