Common WordPress Questions

These are answers to some of your most common WordPress questions

If you need to host several sites without thinking about pageview limits and sharing your resources with other website owners, you should try Cloudways.

I haven’t found any uses for premium caching plugins and my sites do fine by simply implementing CloudFlare Full Page Caching or by subscribing to CloudFlare APO. Recently I started using WP-Optimize to implement caching at the application level so that’s what I recommend at this moment

I recommend GenerateBlocks but I also think that Kadence Blocks is another great plugin to build sites

I have used GeneratePress for quite a while. I have tried alternatives such as Astra, Kadence, and Blocksy but I get easily overwhelmed by all their settings.

Speed experts have true challenges with some sites with a complex stack. Site owners building authority sites just have to pick a decent hosting provider, pick a lightweight theme and builder, pick lightweight plugins, and optimize their site media, styles, and scripts using some of their favorite optimization tools. I recommend Perfmatters above all other plugins out there.

(1) I don’t use shared hosting, (2) I don’t install nulled plugins and themes. (3) The theme and plugins I use are never or rarely featured on WordPress security newsletters (4) I have created a Cloudflare Firewall that prevents the most common attacks made to WordPress sites.
