Enable Active Caching
Adding Active caching to your WordPress site will have great influence on its speed. There are several services like Varnish and APC you can use but most of them need a great deal of server construction and tweaking of the application to work accurately. That is why, we at SiteGround have created an instrument called the SuperCacher. With it, all you have to to do is mount a tiny plugin and permit the Active caching with an individual click. To find out more how to utilize it, please check out our SuperCacher Guide.
Enable gZIP compression
The simplest way to permit the gZIP compression for your images, CSS and JS data is to include these lines to your .htaccess document in the main WordPress folder:
11 ## ENABLE GZIP COMPRESSION ##
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text message/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE content material/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE word/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE wording/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE software/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE request/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE program/rss+xml

Work with a CDN
Content delivery sites (CDN) are server systems that clone cached copies of your site on all their location nodes. Which means that when your site visitors demand your site, cache of it'll be dished up by the closest server location, somewhat than the key datacenter of your hosting service provider.

Maximize your Images
Images are crucial part of each website. It's important to keep these things optimized. A couple of few things relating to your images that you ought to have at heart when expanding your WordPress site:
- Use images with the correct size. Usually do not upload big images and then size them with HTML. Ensure that your photographs and other images aren't bigger than the scale you're actually showing them in.
- Smush your images. Smushing them will remove all the excess data from your photographs - creation time frame, camera used for the picture, Gps device coordinates, etc. There's a plugin that will that for you called WP Smush.it.
- If possible, use Sprites for your designs. Using sprites is a CSS approach that runs on the single image showing multiple design elements on your webpages. This way rather than loading a large number of small images (making http demands every time), your site will start just a single one. Sprites, however, must be looked at when the theme was created. So always look for themes or templates that utilize sprites.
Leverage web browser caching
Leveraging the web browser caching means that you can identify for just how long your guests' web browsers should cache your images, CSS, JS and adobe flash documents. However, if some of those resources is cached, your server will inform the visitor's internet browser and the cached content will be changed with the new one. You can include the next OmniEngine Review to be able to allow this system.
