What is a Dessky Cache plugin?

Dessky Cache is a free lightweight and simple plugin for WordPress site caching. There are no million tabs of options you need to configure and it could be up and running a minutes. This plugin is developed around the ability to simply install it and start caching.

Best of all, because it is lightweight and comes with only few options, it will take minimum server resources. This means that it will work fast on any modest shared host out there.

How it’s working?

Dessky Cache focuses mainly on disk caching. It will take your pages create static HTML documents from them and stores those on your server’s drive. This is a lot faster than the usual default WordPress installation because it averts the core, plugins, and database procedures. And all this happens automatically, you don’t have to do anything.

It’s features include:

  • Minification of HTML and Javascript (basically this only removes blank space from a code)
  • Automated and manually option to empty cache from WordPress dashboard
  • Viewable size of cache in dashboard

The other distinguishing feature of Dessky Cache plugin is that it focuses on the new HTTP/2 protocol. To take benefit of HTTP/2 you have to be running over HTTPS. Basically this protocol speeds up TLS connections. Most caching plugins will offer features to combine documents, called concatenation. The Dessky Cache doesn’t offer this because with the new HTTP/2 protocol this could actually damage your performance. So this plugin is looking towards the future and ditching these old optimization tricks.

How to install it?

Step 1

The first thing you should do is to download and install the free Dessky Cache plugin. You can download it from the repository or search for it within your WordPress dashboard. Search for “Dessky Cache” and it should be the first one on the list. Then click on “Install Now” and activate it afterwards.

Scroll to the bottom and you may see that it adds a comment in your HTML code with a timestamp. In addition, please keep in mind that plugin doesn’t cache in case you’re logged into your WordPress dashboard, therefore do this test in a new browser or open incognito window.
