I’ve been a huge fan of performance optimizations. I’ve done everything from total cache to auto optimize to an array of plugins to “tweak” the heck out of my sites. Most recently I have been using WP Rocket on NGINX servers. This has worked great.
In the past few months I’ve been using OpenLightspeed servers and added this plugin to them. Holy crap. The results are impressive.
I moved over a dozen sites over and haven’t looked back. Including an Ecommerce site that gets 35k views a week + orders. This stack fixed the problems that Kinsta seemed to ignore, telling me to upgrade my service. I’m saving a fortune now.
I was also mesmerized by their active support team on slack. Usually whenever something is for free, support diminishes. My experience was the complete opposite. I thought the slack channel would be dead like ghost town, but much to my surprise, I got all my questions answered. I had no trouble with their competent team. They answered all my demanding questions productively with enough details not to leave me in bewilderment.
When I paired Litespeed cache with Cloudflare it substantially rejuvenated my site. A perfect performance enhancer without spending any money. Luckily, my host has Litespeed servers in place otherwise the plugin won't work.
All and all, Litespeed is definitely paving the way for caching! Might I also add how multi-faceted their free plugin is? You can compress images similar to Shortpixel or Tinypng and optimize your database (cleaning post revisions, removing transient options, etc.) similar to wp-optimize or autoptimize. I never seen a caching plugin do so many chores at once.
This saves on bloat (you dont need to install additional plugins for these types of jobs). And I am sure down the road, they will add more features and customization options for image compression. It has most of what you need for free. No need to spend extra dollars on Shortpixel and any other paid image optimization plugin.
I highly recommend Litespeed over WP rocket, W3 Total Cache, SG Optimizer, and any other caching plugin. It's simple to configure with robust loading speeds! And if you get lost in the tracks, rest assured, their hands-on tutorial guides and slack channel won't leave you hanging.
You guys deserve an academy award! I wish the Litespeed team all of God's blessings for a healthy business sustenance!
When you’re looking for dozens of features to optimize your site but need one plugin, then litespeed plugin is here. Very good job, from traditional cache to object cache and all other unique featured, including image optimization. Its what I really needed for my site.
The combination of the LiteSpeed server software, WP cache plugin and quic.cloud CDN is unbeatable. I tried configuring all different kinds of plugins to work together to achieve the same things. Don’t waste your time.
LiteSpeed works far better and the few bucks it costs to add it to your server is a no brainer.
I was having troubles with decent wordpress performance overall. Once i put Martynas from MC2 on the task to figure this high load / high TTFB he came with the idea to use Litespeed on one of my servers. Paired with a few other tweaks such as Modsecurity OWASP and some other sauce, i gotta site litespeed is the number one sollution and integration that furfills any of my needs. Any plugin that i used to use can be ditched from this point on, and perfectly configured to my needs. In order to use this you need however a litespeed capable server (or get a license yourself, for 35 a month) but the return is a big phat 10/10 in both performance and load.
I think i run 40 wordpress sites on litespeed right now and the TTFB is extremely well at this point. Where normally without litespeed, every wordpress website consumed 120 to 350MB to spawn open just ONE page per visitor, this pretty much packs it down to ready to push chunks of data and keep the resource requirement EXTREMELY low.
A recommendation for anyone that needs improvement on the wordpress.
I don’t want to exaggerate anything in my review but the experience I had through this plugin is really so amazing that It may not seem a normal one.
But to be honest, this plugin has extremely well-optimized functionality, features and the best part of it is their support. I’ve been using many other WordPress plugins/extensions but have never come across such helpful support.
And another thing which is also pretty lucrative is that this plugin supports to cache mobile-optimized pages separately unlike other speed optimization plugins.
There are no words to describe it, I’m not a simple user, I’m a software engineer with Linux and architect background. Said it just to ground my opinion, this plugin with Open LiteSpeed or LiteSpeed webservice is the faster I have every see.
Before I was using about 3 Linux crons to generate and control Nginx cache, and get many errors with plugins cache (as they generate by their owns), so it was a mess. I got nginx working with a great cache solution, but some times just lost CSS format and it got really bad to discovery it! Another time Elementor just stop to generate css, so I eventually end up creating a code to refresh page after save.
Well this all was resolved with LiteSpeed and this specific plugin that gave me the power and flexibility to manage my site from back panel. To be more specific today, my solution is Digital Ocean (20$ server setup – just 2 cpu with 4gb) with liteSpeed and MariaDB. Site is so fast, that some times I have to clear my browser cache and refresh it just to make myself believe it. And must say.
Now it’s everything just going great, when I edit or create a new post with Elementor, LiteSpeed just generates a new copy and cache it for me. I don’t even have to hit the page twice. The only thing that you should know is, to get the best from plugin, you should have some webservice knowledge, but you should be fine with defaults!
In combination with LiteSpeed server it is the top state-of-the-art solution for the WordPress site performance.
For companies concerned with their sales we recommend testing out the LightSpeed Enterprise server in combination with LSCache, as it really makes a difference vs. Apache and Nginx. Recent progress with Cyberpanel as alternative to Plesk or CPanel can much help with it.
We congratulate the LS development team for bringing together such advanced functionalities in caching, including excellent image optimisation or the groundbreaking CDN, the QUIC cloud (the first CDN to cache dynamic content of a WordPress site). The free alternative of OpenLiteSpeed server is also very impressive and fast growing.
Summarizing LSCache is not just the best and most advanced WordPress cache, but a gateway to the new full stack web technology, that challanges the LAMP/LNMP models.
I experienced a rise in page speed after installing LSCWP and QUIC CDN. However, compared with other cache plugins, its easier to install and configure than w3 cache but more complex compared with WP rocket.
Esse é um daqueles Plugins que não podem faltar. Acreditem ele melhorou 75% a velocidade de meu site. A equipe de suporte fez um excelente trabalho. Não tenham preguiça de entrar em contato com eles, pois o suporte é total. Obrigado LiteSpeed.
Free plugin with premium functions that can be achieved by optimizing any website built with WordPress. The technical support is even better, they give you quick solutions. I have used WPROCKETS and it is the opposite of LiteSpeed. I recommend anyone to give this great plugin a try. If you have any problem do not worry that they will help you.
I have tried a few cache plugins and this by far, is the best. It’s easy to use, and the documentation is complete and easy to understand. It even has image optimisation and you can easily switch between optimised/unoptimised images to see the difference. And it’s free. What more can you ask for. I am using LiteSpeed servers and LSCache and my website now loads at 1/2 the time it used to take. THANK YOU guys so much! And did I mention? Support is also 100% amazing.
I decided to give this plugin a shot mostly for its Critical CSS feature, as it is the only one I came across that makes this process that simple. There are so many other features that I ended up loving in it, though; being able to combine multiple CSS/JS files, the option to show a blurry version of images until the actual ones are downloaded (instead of that single-coloured box that most websites use), and that lovely lazyloading thing that I used to use a different plugin for, to name a few.
As for the documentation, it was perfect for me and I’m not really a technical person. I mean, things explode in my screen all the time.
Also, I can’t get excited enough about the support. Kevin on Slack was immensely helpful; his responses were quick and straight to the point.
Im using Litespeed cache with Namehero Litespeed hosting Page speeds are insanely fast Double AA score on GTMetrix when paired with Cloudflare and Railgun So many configuration options, spent a good few hours testing to get best results Highly recommended
