PhastPress

Description

PhastPress uses advanced techniques to manipulate your pages, scripts, stylesheets and images to significantly improve load times. It’s designed to conform to Google PageSpeed Insights recommendations and can improve your site’s score dramatically.

PhastPress has the open source Phast web page optimisation project by Kibo IT at its core:

  • Phast optimizes images using PNG quantization and JPEG recoding, optionally through a free API. Small images are inlined into your page to save HTTP requests.
  • Phast loads all scripts on your page asynchronously, while maintaining full compatibility with legacy scripts, due to our custom script loader. External scripts are proxied to extend their cache lifetime.
  • Phast inlines critical CSS on the fly by comparing the rules in your stylesheets with the elements on your page. PhastPress also inlines Google Fonts CSS.
  • Phast bundles all CSS into a single file, which is loaded asynchronously.
  • Phast lazily loads IFrames to prioritize the main page load.

Is PhastPress a caching plugin?

No, PhastPress does not do caching. We recommend using WP Super Cache in combination with PhastPress to speed up your server response time (TTFB).

Is PhastPress compatible with WP Fastest Cache?

Yes, but non-caching optimizations must be disabled. Turn off the WP Fastest Cache options in this screenshot.

Is PhastPress compatible with other caching plugins?

Yes. Some caching plugins include optimizations of JavaScript, CSS and/or images. We recommend turning off all optimizations to avoid conflicts with PhastPress.

Amazing plugin

This plugin is just amazing. I use it at 5 websites and I have wonderful results.

Support from the team is on a high level and always help.

Good luck !

Our pages are loading 2 times faster than before!

We went from a 79/100 to a 89/100 by just activating this plugin alone. But more important is that the pages loads 2 times faster than before. And a faster loading web store is a better selling web store.

We had a small problem because PhastPress was interfering with our MyParcel plugin, but Albert quickly discovered the problem and fixed it.

Awesome work guys, keep up the good work!

I had a tiny issue relating to my subdomain, but after contacting support my issue was quickly resolved!

Pagespeed score went to 99/100

We are very happy with the optimisation of our website. We went from 62/100 on the Pagespeed score to 99/100. We had some help of the developers to optimise the plugin.
