WordPress Caching

There are a lot of options out there for caching WordPress.

I get asked quite often which is the ‘best’ plugin for WordPress caching.

There are three main players:

WP Super Cache – Most Popular. Easy to use, but needs some config. Been around a while.

w3 Total Cache – this one has about 2.8 million downloads. not for the faint of heart, takes a lot of setup

Hyper Cache – this one is newer, with about 400k downloads. very simple, very fast. gaining traction.

We’ve used all three, but our ‘go to’ is WP Super Cache.  This is after some benchmarking.
