WP Fastest Cache is one of the most popular WordPress cache plugin that generates static HTML files and speeds up your website in a matter of 5 minutes.
Site speed is one amongst the most important factors that can impact your search rankings. WP Fastest Cache is very easy to setup and dramatically increases the speed of your website.
I have tried other similar plugins like W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache etc. and then switched to WP Fastest Cache and found it very effective among all.
How it works?
PHP and MySQL is used when the page is rendered, which consumes CPU and RAM. When a lot of visitors come to your website, CPU and RAM consumption increases which makes the page to render slowly. So, instead of loading the page again and again, WP Fastest Cache saves static HTML files (commonly known as cache) and serves the page from cache.
