Bottom line? Combining the superpowers of WPX Partnership with WP Rocket means even more SPEED. 

Now if you’re into the technogeekery of this new duo, here is what you should know:

  1. WP Rocket has been optimized to work with WPX’s own custom, high speed CDN, the XDN, and vice-versa
  2. Improved auto-cleaning of the WPX XDN with optimized caching parameters
  3. Fine tuning of WP Rocket’s Cache Preload feature so that when a visitor first visits your site, the content of the page is already loaded and ready to be displayed, resulting in even faster page loading times
  4. Further minification of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files on your website for faster fetching
  5. Lazy Loading option in WP Rocket to only load images when they are present on the visitor’s screen
  6. WP Rocket also comes with a database optimization tool that helps optimization of your site’s database

The following modifications were also introduced in order for WPX and WP Rocket to function seamlessly together:

  1. Varnish add-on automatically enabled to ensure synchronized cache clearing
  2. htaccess HTML expires rule disabled to allow CDN’s improved caching
  3. Preload disabled by default to avoid CPU issues (but can be enabled by request via WPX support)
