WP-ROCKET (WP-Rocket vs WP Fastest Cache)

WP-Rocket review


We start in this WP-Rocket vs WP Fastest Cache comparison with WP-Rocket which does not automatically mean it would be better. I want to start by saying that there are a lot of decent cache plug-ins out there that basically all do their job well. A number such as W3 Total Cache are very time-consuming in their settings, it takes quite a while. WP-Rocket shows that to offer the fastest plug-in no cumbersome settings are needed at all.

This plug-in is faster than any other and also has settings that a complete layman will understand well. Most cache plugins have both a free and premium version. Wp-Rocket only has a premium version, so it has to be paid for in any case. WP-Rocket has now been installed on 1.2 million websites.

Having a lightning-fast website ensures more visitors who are also more satisfied with your site. Furthermore, it has a very beneficial effect on conversion and SERP, or better results in Google searches. I don't think it necessary to say that this is well worth paying $ 49 for it.

Below I show you 2 speed test where it can clearly be seen that especially the loading time improves enormously by using the WP-Rocket cache plug-in. The improvement concerns no less than 70%. This is no guarantee from me that this will be the case for every site, but at least 40-50% will always be the case.

The developers of WP-Rocket have done their best to keep the plug-in as simple as possible and it worked out very well. Everyone is able to configure this plug-in as best they can. Most things work out-of-the-box after installing WP-Rocket. The rest is beautifully divided into chapters and checking the boxes here and there is enough to set everything up optimally.

WP-Rocket review clear dashboard

If there are things that you do not immediately understand, just consult the videos that explain everything in scents and colors. These videos are accessible from the dashboard in the plugin as well as dozens of articles.

WP-Rocket review helpdesk

As can be seen above: a wonderful feature is to be able to chat with the WP-Rocket helpdesk from the dashboard of the plug-in. There is no need to go to their site.


WP-Rocket offers a maximum of functions, while everything remains very easy to operate.

WP-Rocket review caching options

Let's start by discussing all the features


WP-Rocket review cache

WP-Rocket already has cache good by default, but here you have additional settings for caching on mobile devices, the expiration time of the cache. Cache files older than the set lifetime are deleted and re-cached. The plug-in even offers User Cache with which you can set cache for logged in visitors.


The chapter "optimizing files" is quite large. You can set everything here for combining (concatenation) and minifying css and javascript files. I'm trying to keep this WP-Rocket review concise, if you don't know what minifying or concatenation is, click on these links.

The option "load javascript deferred" is something most competitor plugins do not have and something very important to Google. JS files are thus only loaded at the end after the rest of the page is already visible. See here what defer means.


Lazy load means that images are loaded blurry and then become sharper. Also, images that are not displayed on the page are loaded later. In this way, images appear almost immediately, which makes visitors happy.

WebP is a type of image file which is 30% smaller than jpeg. Be sure to activate this if you are not using Imagify. Imagify optimizes images for you, I'll get to this later.

WP-Rocket database clean up

If desired, WP-Rocket immediately cleans your website of excess ballast. This ensures an optimized database which makes your site slightly faster. Aside from revisions, trash posts, and drafts as seen below, WP-Rocket also removes the following for you: spam comments, comments you deleted, and temporary files. It also optimizes the tables in your database for you. You can indicate a time at which this will happen with the planner.


Through WP-Rocket you can choose to use their own CDN for a fee of $ 8 per month. In the chapter "Add-ons" you can use Cloudflare for free. Since WP-Rocket is prepared for this, the installation of both CDNs is very easy.

WP-Rocket review add-ons

WP-Rocket also works perfectly with Facebook, Google Analytics (Statistics for visitors), Varnish (Server cache-program), Sucuri (Website Security), and like said before Cloudflare (CDN). In this WP-Rocket plug-in review we have to give full marks for this.


WP-Rocket optimize images

Here you can find another add-on: Imagify. Imagify is perfect for optimizing your images. Even if you already did that yourself, Imagify makes everything even smaller. Among other things, by replacing all images with WEBP images. Imagify can be used for free up to so many images but it doesn't cost too much anyway. This saves you a lot of work and ensures a better SERP ranking as it makes your site a lot faster.


WP-Rocket review tools

In the chapter "Tools" you will find the possibilities to export and import the complete settings of the plug-in. If you have several websites, you can simply take over the settings and you do not have to set anything at all. It is also possible to undo this after upgrading the plug-in.


It will have become clear to you that WP-Rocket is the cream of the crop when it comes to cache plug-ins. It works perfectly with all other known tools for Wordpress. Setting up the plugin is extremely easy and it is also the fastest plugin you can find. WP-Rocket is well worth the $ 49 charged for it.

WP FASTEST CACHE (WP-Rocket vs WP Fastest Cache)

WP Fastest Cache review


In deze WP-Rocket vs WP Fastest Cache comparison bespreken we nu de gratis en premium versies van WP Fastest Cache. We should definitely start with the fantastic rating it has on Wordpress.org and the 1.7 million downloads of their free plugin. It's not for nothing that the score is so high, I have years of experience with this plug-in and is still my favorite for free cache plug-ins.

See the ratings and downloads for WP Fastest Cache above.


I tested a clean Wordpress install with and without the plug-in on GT-Metrix, one of the most renowned speedtests out there and you can see the results below. In seconds the loading time is halved and the total score is from 78 to 99 points. This is a great result for a cache plugin.

WP Fastest Cache basic settings

We should definitely draw attention in this WP Fastest Cache review to the fact that after installing the plugin, everything will work right away and your site will be much faster. Above you saw what has been activated without you having to do anything about it. The ease of installation is the same as with the professional and highest rated cache-plug-in WP-Rocket.


Below is a list of everything that the premium version offers. In short, everything that other top plugins also offer. Nothing is missing, the premium version is a lot better than the free version which is already very good as we saw in the speed test.

WP Fastest Cache premium version

The most important things are minifying for all your css and js and combining the files. Images must of course also be optimized. I think these features should also be included in the free version. Also very important is Render-Blocking JS so that not all javascript is already loaded if not yet needed. And Lazy Load is also a very useful feature for which there are tons of free plugins so why not just have it in the free version of WP Fastest cache.


The premium version is priced at $ 49 per site, with multi-site discounts. WP Fastest Cache is complete and a very good plugin yet for the same money I would prefer WP-Rocket, the number 1 in my collection best cache plugins. WP-Rocket is a bit faster and the dashboard looks much better. All in all, a more professional plugin for the same money.

WP-Rocket vs WP Fastest Cache conclusion

Thanks for reading this WP-Rocket vs WP Fastest Cache comparison to the end. I have made it clear in my enthusiasm for WP-Rocket that it is the better choice. Strangely, WP Fastest Cache was my favorite cache plug-in for years. I am talking about the free version because WP-Rocket theme was the first premium version that I purchased. As good as WP Fastest Cache is and has improved even more recently, it is a pleasure to work with WP-Rocket and it can cost quite a bit. I will probably also get those costs out again through more sales through my sites through faster loading times.
