Why Use WP Cloudflare Super Page Cache?
This free plugin is the easiest way to optimize your WordPress site with Cloudflare.
Cloudflare is a free and easy-to-use content delivery network that accelerates and protects your WordPress site. You can use Cloudflare to speed up your WordPress site by caching the content of your website on their servers. This way, when someone visits your website, they will get the cached version of your website stored on Cloudflare’s servers, instead of the original server. Cloudflare also provides you with an Internet security through firewall rules that protect your website from DDoS attacks.
What is edge caching?
Edge caching is a service that Cloudflare offers to free users. It caches the content of your web pages through a CDN (content delivery network), so that your visitors around the world can load your pages quicker, from any of Cloudflare’s many network locations. At the same time, it uses advanced compression to make your pages load faster and uses SSL to encrypt your data. This means that it makes your pages load faster, safer and more efficiently.
Why does edge caching help your site load faster?
Why does edge caching help your site load faster? The most common way to serve a webpage is to download all the data from the server, process it (compress, etc.), and send it over the network to the client. That can take time, especially if the data is large. The Cloudflare edge network acts as a caching layer that reduces the time it takes to download the data by storing static versions of your webpages at multiple locations around the world. When a visitor requests one of these static versions, they are served the cached copy instead of downloading the data from your origin server. This leads to faster page loads for your users, happier visitors who come back more often, and faster growth of your business.
How to Enable CloudFlare for Your WordPress Website
CloudFlare is a popular way to speed up your WordPress website by reducing page load times. Comparing using CloudFlare to not using CloudFlare, a website will load about 5-10x faster for a visitor from a country far from your website. The tutorial video above will show how to enable CloudFlare for a WordPress website, what will happen, and how to optimize the CloudFlare settings for your WordPress site.
Fast Affordable Servers with Vultr (and Easy Setup)
Like I mentioned in the video, some pages will always still need to be dynamically generated for each visitor – e.g. the WooCommerce cart and checkout pages. If you want these to be as fast as possible, I’d recommend setting up a Vultr High Frequency server in my tutorial here.
I’d really recommend getting a Vultr High Frequency server in the video above. You can set up a Vultr High Frequency server in a few steps. First, you need to sign up to Vultr with a username and password. Then, you can choose a server location and plan you want. Then, you can either use the automated installer to install it for you or do it manually. Once you’ve set it up, you can configure it with a domain name and a website. Finally, you’ll be able to visit your new Vultr High Frequency site from the web. It’s a great deal for people who have a low budget but still need excellent hardware performance and speed. I hope you found my videos useful and if you have any questions feel free to ask me!
Using Cloudflare with Cloudways
Even easier still is using a Vultr VPS through Cloudways. After years of setting up Linux servers, a lot of us had to do things manually. There was never a way to get a server up and running after installing Linux in less than an hour. But with the launch of the Cloudways, things are a lot easier.
Or if you’re a beginner, you can easily get a managed Vultr High Frequency server from Cloudways already set up for you here:Cloudways – 3 Days Free Trial
While traditional web hosting providers require you to spend more time managing your server, Combing Cloudways with Vultr gives you the workflow of setting up your server the same way you would set up any consumer web application. With one click, you can get your VPS ready for WordPress in no time.
Conclusion: Cloudflare is one of the best free tools out there for speeding up your site and the WP Cloudflare Super Page Cache makes it super easy to set up.
