What is the EasyWP plugin?

The EasyWP plugin was built from the ground up, both to be compatible with our Cloud platform powering EasyWP and to make your WordPress websites faster. It has three levels of advanced caching (Varnish, Opcache, Redis object cache), delivering much faster performance than many of the traditional WordPress caching plugins.

The EasyWP plugin is preinstalled on all EasyWP WordPress websites. You can see a reference to the plugin at the top of your WordPress dashboard, as well as an option to manually clear the cache whenever necessary:



Since we take care of your website caching, you do not need any additional caching plugin on your website.

Yoast plugin

Search engines are the main source of traffic for websites so it’s important to make your website SEO friendly to help you rank higher. To improve search engine optimization of your website, we recommend installing the Yoast plugin. This plugin will help you to rank higher in search engines. It gives you useful information about how visitors find and use your website. It provides valuable content analysis such as how to write titles and descriptions and use keywords in your content, on-page analysis, generates a sitemap, and so much more. Yoast SEO is easy to install and setup and it is the most used WordPress SEO plugin.

To install the Yoast SEO plugin, go to the WordPress Admin >> Plugins >> Add new. Find the Yoast SEO plugin with the search option and click Install now:

If you have any issues with other sitemap plugins, contact our Support team.
