W3 Total Cache is described as 'improves the user experience of your site by improving your server performance, caching every aspect of your site, reducing the download times and providing transparent content delivery network (CDN) integration'. There are more than 10 alternatives to W3 Total Cache for a variety of platforms, including Self-Hosted solutions, Wordpress, Magento Community Edition, Shopware and OpenCart. The best alternative is WP Rocket. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try WP Super Cache or Hyper Cache. Other great apps like W3 Total Cache are WP-Optimize (Freemium), WP Fastest Cache (Freemium), Cachify (Free) and Cache Enabler (Free, Open Source).
Speed up your WordPress website, more traffic, conversions and money with WP Rocket caching plugin. Minimal Configuration, Immediate Results Don’t waste your time struggling with complex plugin settings. WP Rocket launches upon activation.
This plugin generates static HTML files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a HTML file is generated your web server will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.
Cachify optimizes your page loads by caching posts, pages and custom post types as static content. You can choose between caching via database, on the web server’s hard drive (HDD), or—thanks to APC (Alternative PHP Cache)—directly in the web server’s system cache.
The Cache Enabler plugin creates static HTML files and stores them on the servers disk. The web server will deliver the static HTML file and avoids the resource intensive backend processes (core, plugins and database).
Autoptimize makes optimizing your site really easy. It can aggregate, minify and cache scripts and styles, injects CSS in the page head by default but can also inline critical CSS and defer the aggregated full CSS, moves and defers scripts to the footer and minifies HTML.
