FastComet partnered with WP Rocket for better speed

Today, we are proud to announce our new partnership with the wonderful WP Rocket team. They are well-known in the WordPress community for the plugins and the training they provide. This was the main reason why we reached out to the WP Rocket developers for a partnership that will benefit both companies and most importantly – our customers.

WP Rocket is a cache plugin that will improve the performance of your website, using different optimization techniques. As a hosting company, we are always looking for ways to improve our services or assist our customers with different ways to optimize their websites for better performance. We believe that this is all possible and easy to achieve with the use of the WP Rocket plugin.

According to the official WP Rocket documentation, the main advantages of the plugin are:

  • Caching of all the pages for quick viewing
  • Preloading the cache of files using two bots in Python
  • Reduction of the number of HTTP requests to reduce loading time
  • Decreasing bandwidth usage with GZIP compression
  • Management of the headers (expires, etags…)
  • Minification and concatenation of JS and CSS files
  • Deferred loading of images (LazyLoad)
  • Deferred loading of JavaScript files and Image Optimization

The WordPress users are quite familiar with other options for caching and better performance of their websites. A few WordPress plugins can do that, but not to the extent of WP Rocket. We recommend reviewing the WP Rocket compare page for detailed information on what it offers and the kind of features you get when you install the plugin on your website.

After a thorough testing by Jonathan Buttigieg, we are glad to announce that our hosting packages meet all of the requirements of the WP Rocket plugin. All our plans are configured for a smooth performance and all you need is a valid license. A big thank you to Jonathan (and the entire WP Rocket team) for the time he spared to confirm that!

As a WP Rocket partner, FastComet provides a discount of 20% for existing customers, interested in purchasing the plugin. If you have an active hosting account with us, you can get the coupon via your Client Area > Order. Alternatively, you can always contact us for more details on how to take advantage of this offer and improve the performance of your website.
