    Hi Mark!

    Great review of WP Rocket. I am using it on my own website and I must say it is very easy to install and configure and it work right out of the box. I used the free W3 Total Cache plugin before but I absolutely prefer WP Rocket. This is an outstanding plugin and service with great support.

    Looks good but it’s a complete turn-off that all the videos have been in french since over a year ago. This is a premium plugin. What would it take for the developers to translate all the videos to English, since they are selling and making money. Again, this is a very big turn off!

    I just wanted to warn people, caching is a complex concept and be careful being seduced by the wp-rocket ‘one click install’. I had various issues with wp-rocket minification which they initially solved. However, with an update to their own plugin 2 months after I bought it, images stopped loading in certain browsers.

    I had a lot of back and forth with wp-rocket support (mind you they are not native English speakers) and there was so much miscommunication it was staggering. They did not troubleshoot my issue thoroughly and I wasted many hours on emails getting nowhere. I requested a refund. Their policy is that after 30 days refunds aren’t possible so I ended up disputing with PayPal to refund 10 months worth of wp-rocket’s value. I am waiting for PayPal to decide.

    I was using W3 total cache before and have switched back after removing wp-rocket. W3 total cache is definitely faster than wp-rocket and more customizable so ultimately more powerful.

    As stated above, the website clearly promises “30 Days Satisfied or Refunded”:

    Well, this is not true because when requesting a refund, they suddently pull out this “refund policy” that Dan also mentioned in his comment:

    Note that there is no link to a “refund policy” on the above Buy-It-Now page at all.

      We’ve just updated our refund policy, which is now much more flexible. You can have a look at it: http://wp-rocket.me/refund-policy/

      You also have now a link on the pricing page on “30 Day Money Back Guarantee”.

      PS: We’ve just refunded you.

    Be careful with Wp Rocket! It has its own .haccess file but it blocks bots and gives 403 error! Thanks to this stupid plugin I’ve lost all my place on Google search results. I have removed their .htaccess and it returned to normal. This is unbelivable!

      Hi, thank you for your feedback.

      You are right, WP Rocket writes into the htaccess to put some good performance rules to make your website faster, but of course not to block bots.

      More than 80 000 websites are using WP Rocket, without any issue regarding bots being blocked, and we have very positive feedback about SEO improvements.

      We would be more than happy to help you in our support

    Looking at the source code of this page, it seems that it is not utilizing WP Rocket Cache or any other cache/minify/combine module? Care to share why?

    Good tool to use. This the best plugin EVER! So what about – GOOGLE PAGESPEED INSIGHTS? I tested all the time new websites there and only recently got 96/100 desktop и 89 for mobile: http://www.seo-website.ru/website-speed-improve/
    So Caching+Wordpress+adaptive is the future!

    This post cleared my doubts about the WP Rocket plugin. There were two plugins on my list namely W3 Total Cache and WP Rocket. I was confused to select one from them. But now I will be using WP Rocket on my website. Thanks for the awesome review. However, keep up the awesome work.

    Hi Mark,

    I am considering using WP Rocket on my WordPress site ‘EyeCandyForCarLoverss.com'(not multi-site installation) but need to first verify certain requirements are met:

    1) Works with Sqlite3 databases.
    2) Coordinates correctly with Varnish 4.0 caching.
    3) Has provided proven page-load times with Sqlite3 and WordPress installed together.
    4) No problem using Cloudflare CDN as well.

    Thanks for your advice.
