A2 Optimized is designed to make it quick and easy to speed up and secure your website by installing and configuring several well known, stable plugins with the click of a few buttons.

Have you ever tried to configure W3 Total cache and got lost in the mess of configuration pages?

A2 Optimized has broken it down into the most valuable optimizations and will automatically configure W3 Total Cache for what works best in most shared hosting environments.

Free Optimizations

Caching with W3 Total Cache:

  • Enable Page, Object and Database caching with W3 Total cache in one click.
  • Page Caching stores full copies of pages on the disk so that php code and database queries can be skipped by the web server.
  • Object Caching stores commonly used elements such as menus / widgets and forms on disk or in memory to speed up page rendering.
  • Database cache stores copies of common database queries on disk or in memcory to speed up page rendering.

Minify HTML Pages:

  • Auto Configure W3 Total Cache to remove excess white space and comments from html pages to compress their size.
  • This provides for minor imporvements in page load time.

Minify CSS Files:

  • Auto Configure W3 Total Cache to condense CSS files into non human-readable compressed files.
  • Combines multiple css files into a single download.

Gzip Compression:

  • Ensures that files are compressed before transfering them.
  • Can provide significant speed imporvements for page loads.
  • Reduces bandwidth required to serve web pages.

Deny Direct Access to Configuration Files and Comment Form:

  • Enables WordPress hardening rules in .htaccess to prevent browser access to certain files.
  • Prevents bots from submitting to comment forms.
  • Note: Turn this off if you use systems that post to the comment form without visiting the page.

Lock Editing of Plugins and Themes from the WP Admin:

  • Turns off the file editor in the wp-admin.
  • Prevents plugins and themes from being tampered with from the wp-admin.
