Here at Hostinger our servers specifically use LiteSpeed. This allows you to boost your WordPress website’s performance by installing the LiteSpeed caching plugin.
LiteSpeed caching plugin does all of these things:
Increases your website speed and performance
Cached data is stored on our servers so whenever you open a website - data is taken from our servers cache instead of the WordPress website itself, speeding up the process.
Some elements of your website always stay the same (for example your website logo). If we don’t use a caching plugin, the server will download the same logo over and over again. For this reason, whenever we make a request, we are losing bandwidth. By using a caching plugin, we avoid these repeated requests.
Improves your customer’s experience
Faster load times = happy customers. By adding caching you are providing a better overall experience for all of your website visitors.
Google takes site speed as a determining factor for page ranking. Even though SEO consists of many things, making your website load faster will still benefit your website’s SEO greatly.
Reduces the load for the server
Using a caching plugin reduces the number of processes running on your server, thus reducing the load your server and database get. It is extra useful if you want to get the most out of your hosting plan.
We do recommend sticking with the default settings as they are really optimized for the best performance. Although if you want to tinker around we suggest checking this documentation by the LiteSpeed creators - The Beginner’s Guide to LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress.
LiteSpeed Cache plugin is also available for popular Content management systems like Magento, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, OpenCart and Laravel
