Blogging has become a very common thing today. As a blogger if you are using WordPress to write your blogs and your blog is drawing heavy traffic.
Then there is a very good chance that your server is crashing often because of heavy load. To increase the speed of your Website you can install Cache plugins on WordPress. By adding these plugins, the pages are stored in the form of plain html in the cache and whenever user requests for the page it is immediately displayed. Let’s have a look at the various plugins available to increase efficiency of your site.
WP Super Cache produces static html files and is excellent for your site. Once the html version of the page is processed and stored then the Cache will serve with this html page instead of the heavy PHP scripted or other scripted page.
