Why should I use WP Rocket for my WordPress site?
Nowadays, people won’t wait for slow websites. Texts, videos and Images need to load fast; otherwise, visitors will likely abandon the website. Shortening the loading time, even if it is just for a few milliseconds, has a positive impact on conversion rates and search engine rankings.
WP Rocket can be valuable to anyone who wishes to improve their website performance and SEO rankings regardless of their coding abilities. From bloggers who wish for a faster blog, freelancers and agencies that build optimised websites for their clients, to e-commerce businesses that want to provide a smooth shopping experience for their customers.
Where can I get WP Rocket?
The easiest way to purchase the plugin is via your one.com control panel.
You can find it in your one.com WordPress Dashboard, as well as the add-on product page. It can be purchased like other add-ons and activated like other plugins.
Is there a special offer for one.com customers?
Yes, there is. All one.com customers that purchase the WP Rocket premium plugin via their one.com account will benefit from a 20% discount for their first subscription year.
How can I install WP Rocket?
When purchasing WP Rocket via one.com, we will install the plugin for you, so you can lean back and wait until the installation is completed. If you happen to uninstall it by mistake, don't worry, you can always install it again from the WordPress dashboard of your one.com control panel.
What is the difference between WP Rocket and our Performance Cache plugin?
Our Performance Cache plugin is, first and foremost, a caching plugin working with Varnish cache and CDN.
WP Rocket, in addition to being a caching plugin, also offers a variety of performance-boosting features such as file optimisation, improving lazy loading images and much more. The automated page caching makes the site faster by removing the PHP and requests to the database and saving the content to HTML files.
WP Rocket’s page caching is very compatible with Varnish caching and works exceptionally well in combination with our Performance Cache plugin. Since they are a great addition to one another, we recommend using both plugins together for maximised optimisation.
How does the subscription work?
At purchase, WP Rocket will be activated for the remainder of your current subscription period. Add-on subscriptions are automatically renewed 30 days before the renewal date, just like your web space subscription. You are welcome to contact our support if you have questions about this.
How can I cancel the WP Rocket add-on?
If you don't want to use WP Rocket anymore, you can cancel it in your one.com control panel in the same place where you cancel add-on products.
The WP Rocket plugin will stay active despite cancellation. You can still use the plugin and all its features, but will no longer receive any updates or support for it, when the subscription expires.
Is there a trial version?
WP Rocket does not offer a trial version, but if the plugin doesn’t meet your expectations, you will be refunded within 14 days of your original purchase. Don't hesitate to get in touch with our support team to help you with the processes in the first two weeks of your purchase.
