Why Choosing the Right Cache Plugin Makes All the Difference?

Keeping your site fast is the key to your online success

  • A 1-second delay in page response can lead to a 7% reduction in conversions.
  • As page loading time goes from 1 to 7 seconds, the bounce rate of a mobile site increases by 113%, and conversions drop.
  • 40% of people will leave a page that takes more than 3 seconds to load.
  • Page speed is an SEO ranking factor: the faster your site loads, the more Google (and your visitors) will love it.

Choose a powerful and reliable cache plugin that keeps pace with the latest in web performance. Prefer a plugin that is easy to use and gives you the best speed boost.
Rely on a friendly team that is ready to help you in case you need it.

The Same Purpose
But Not the Same Plugin

Discover the main differences between WP Rocket and LiteSpeed Cache


LiteSpeed Cache is a free plugin, but caching benefits are only available to LiteSpeed server users. Unfortunately, its optimization features do not specifically address Core Web Vitals recommendations.

WP Rocket offers blazing-fast speed results, as well as plenty of optimization features that you can’t find with other free cache plugins (Delay JS Execution, Remove Unused CSS, Critical Path CSS for specific pages to name a few). This cache plugin is designed to improve Core Web vitals, address Google PageSpeed recommendations and achieve better performance scores, without ever compromising user experience. 


With LiteSpeed Cache, only general features can be used on different servers. Caching features are only available on the LiteSpeed server.

WP Rocket is compatible with 99% of hosts (and the only caching plugin allowed by WordPress.com and Pressable).
It’s also compatible with the most popular tools, themes, plugins. Furthermore, the team is constantly working on removing any incompatibilities.


LiteSpeed Cache is a free product so it would be unfair to expect a huge investment in product development. Although the product is regularly updated, it is not completely up to date when it comes to the Core Web Vitals.

WP Rocket’s team of web performance experts is constantly making adjustments to address the latest web performance requirements and provide a great user experience. We release on average four new major versions every year (new features, major improvements), plus as many minor releases as necessary (bug fixes, exclusion updates, minor enhancements).

Ease of Use

LiteSpeed Cache is not the most beginner-friendly plugin.
Its setup can take a long time as there are many options to choose from.

WP Rocket probably has the easiest setup you can imagine (you’re done in 3 minutes tops).
It applies 80% of web performance best practices automatically, without having to enable any options. Literally anyone can speed up their website using WP Rocket. No coding skills are needed although advanced users always have room to play around with the features.


Don’t underestimate the power of efficient customer support! When you’re stuck on a technical problem, you can easily lose patience, and your business ends up suffering as well.

LiteSpeed Cache offers support in case you are facing issues. But, as with any free plugin, customers shouldn’t expect quick and thorough support. However, there is dedicated support available for $39 per issue.

With WP Rocket, a friendly, technical support team is available in different time zones for all your questions, no matter which type of license you have. They help you achieve the best performance results possible.


Did you know that improving your site’s speed by 0.1 seconds can increase conversion rates by 8%? Do the math for your business, and you’ll be amazed.

LiteSpeed Cache is a free plugin.

WP Rocket is premium with no free version. Price starts at $59/year for one website. For that price, support and version updates are included.
