It's good, A on Gtmetrix, 100% on Page Speed Insights

By Chris (dealer) on April 21, 2023

First off, if you are having any issues with this plugin (I see a few negative reviews), like me, you probably don't know what you are doing. I had issues too because I didn't know the best way to set this up.

I jumped on a call with A2 support (ask for Jake, he's the man!) to get mine fixed up correctly, and the site is now blazing fast. A score of 100 on page speed insights desktop, 77 on mobile (a very respectable result for a review site with ads and Amazon plugins), and an A on GTmetix. There's no way to BS if you check with third-party tools, and they hit the bullseye.

If you don't know what you are doing, get this set up correctly with the A2 team. You're site will definitely benefit.

So far, so good!

Good plugin with some limitations

By rom1our on April 18, 2023

The plugin works very well with the Litespeed Cache plugin. In my case I had to disable Litespeed because my proxy (Ezoic) is not Litespeed compatible and in this case also the object cache is disabled, which caused major problems. In conclusion, my observation is that the plugin brings a decisive advantage in conjunction with Litespeed Cache.

New built in cache breaks site

works great with a2 hosting. having issues with the new built in cache system, but perfect other than that.

Best Plugin! Try it!

By nhess1 on June 8, 2021

I love how this plugin carries a lot of the basic needs to improve your site: minifies CSS and Javascript, page cache, PHP OpCode cache, Memcached Cache, removes white space, Page Caching, but my favorite is that it keeps your site more secure in changing your wp-admin - so hackers can't log in so easy! You can do this manually, but this plugin offers so many features for free! I like how it also has the GTmetrix option so you can see what areas to improve your site. When I run Google Page Speed and GTmetrix my site score improved! I also had a few questions regarding the setup of this plugin and their support team was great! Took the time to make sure I installed it correctly! I highly recommend you try this plugin! A FEW TIPS: Create a staging site and ALWAYS test NEW plugins here - so your "live site" is never affected, remember the plugins you have already installed can SOMETIMES CONFLICT with the NEW ONES you decide to add or even your theme, and the type of hosting you currently also gets affected with plugins. I use: Divi Theme, VPS Hosting, Cloudflare CDN, and have 9 plugins with this one! Hope this helps!

Could be good...

By southernrust on August 19, 2020

This plug-in has a lot of good features built-in, but overall does a really bad job. Lately, I've had I/O and physical mem warnings. Took a look into it and it was the cron jobs causing it, but the A2 plugin actually changes the WP Cron jobs to server cron, which is a good thing because the WP Cron isn't so great, but if the server is limited to such a low memory that even it's own cron jobs cause problems, that isn't good. And they are only set to 1 per minute. Maybe this is more a hosting problem, but the plugin slows the admin down too. Everything takes way too long to load. Deactivate the A2 plugin and it works smooth. I guess I am going to have to look for an alternative. Just like having all the options in one plugin. I have fewer issues with clients that are on Gator. For the price of A2, it should be better.
