The Definitive WordPress Caching Plugin
W3 Total Cache is a plugin that grows with you. Initially, most websites need to implement page caching and browser caching, and W3 Total Cache does that for you with a few, simple clicks. As you grow, so do your caching needs. And W3TC will be there for you.
WordPress Page Caching
Page Caching for your WordPress website is one of the most essential things you can do to speed up your site. W3 Total Cache does this for you, quickly and easily, allowing you several options for disk and RAM based storage such as Redis or Memcached.
Static File Compression
Whether your server has Brotli or Gzip compression installed, W3 Total Cache can leverage either to ensure you use the least amount of bandwidth, balanced against the fastest page speed. Your site will load faster, and more reliably with W3TC.
On Demand Images (Lazy Loading)
Lazy loading defers the images from loading unless they are visible in the initial render. This allows you to have richer, longer pages while keeping the performance of the page as fast as possible.
Web Server and Stack Compatibility
Use Apache, NGINX or a combination of both to help accelerate your page speed like never before. W3 Total Cache leverages your web server to speed up your WordPress website like no other plugin available.
What Comes With W3 Total Cache Pro?
Full Site Delivery via CDN
Lazy Loading for Google Maps
Speed up loading time by optimizing Google Maps for your website visitors. Lazy loading ensures the map will not load until it is needed, making your page perform much faster.
Fragment caching extends the core functionality of WordPress by allowing you to enable caching policies on groups of objects that are cached. The benefit of this approach is not only that capabilities in themes and plugins can be optimized to use caching to save resources and reduce response times, but caching methods like Memcached or Redis can be used to scale. Instructions for use are available in the FAQ under the help menu or you can contact support for premium services to help improve website performance.
WordPress Rest API Caching
If you use WordPress as a backend for integrations, API caching may be for you. Similar to page caching, repeat requests will benefit will have significantly lower response times and consume fewer resources to deliver. Save resources or add scale performance to the WordPress API today.
Eliminate Render Blocking CSS
Render blocking CSS delays a webpage from being visible in a timely manner. Every one of your css files delays your page from rendering. The bigger your css, the longer the page takes to load. With W3 Total Cache, you can eliminate the CSS that is not needed on initial page load, making it blazing fast!

Frequently Asked Questions about W3 Total Cache Pro
Why isn’t my site any faster after upgrading to Pro? W3 Total Cache Pro unlocks features in the product, but does not automatically configure them. Upgrading to Pro is a great idea and recommended for all publishers, but this does not automatically improve page load times or optimization scores.
Most of our customers who are serious about performance hire us for W3 Total Cache configuration and theme optimization.
What kind of support is included with the $99/year Pro license? As with any W3 EDGE product or service, just drop us a note if you have questions. If your question requires an analysis of your website or deeper investigation, we might propose a paid audit or consult but generally speaking, if you have a question just email us!
If I upgrade to Pro, will that annoying popup go away? Sorry about that! You don’t need to upgrade in order to make that go away, simply click “Cancel” to suppress it. The next release improves this behavior, sorry for the trouble.
I’m using my site on a different domain now, can you reset my license key? Try this first if you have access to the original domain:
- Remove the license key from W3 Total Cache configuration and save settings
- Enter the license key into the W3 Total Cache configuration on the new site
If that doesn’t resolve the issue, send us an email and we’ll reset your license key.
I’m trying to use fragment caching and it’s not working, what am I doing wrong? If you’re using the Community (free) version of W3 Total Cache, you’ll need to upgrade to Pro (steps outlined above on this page) in order to take full advantage of the fragment caching framework.
I have multiple websites, can I use one license for all of them? W3 Total Cache Pro licenses are valid on a per-install basis, meaning you need one for every WordPress instance you run. If you have three separate websites, you will need three licenses in total—one for each site. If you have five sites in a WordPress multisite instance, you need just one license for all five sites. If you are interested in bulk licensing, please email us for more information.
Do I need a license key for my local or development environments? You don’t! Just add define('W3TC_PRO_DEV_MODE', true); to your wp-config.php file on your non-production environments.
I’ll need several licenses, is there a consultant or agency discount available? If you are interested in bulk licensing, please email us for more information.
