    No doubts at all that WP Rocket plugin will get the same powerful and simple “brothers and sisters” plugins. We can’t wait to see those “newborns” :-)

    I just paid for my second year of WP Rocket and have really enjoyed the experience. The basic setup is really quick and easy to get up while the advanced setup takes just a little more configuration.

    That is one great success story.

    I have played with the idea of using WP Rocket but I’m using ZenCache Premium on all my sites and getting good results.

    “For the past few months, Julio has been working on a security plugin,”

    Look forward to seeing what they come up with.

      +1 for ZenCache Pro. It’s outstanding.

      Stay with Zen Cache, Keith. I have tried using WP Rocket on three occasions now, with three different sites/themes. To say I was underwhelmed with the complexity of getting it going and their very slow and technically challenged support, would be an understatement.

      I think this result only goes to show ~ with so many newbies out there, willing to give them their money and not knowing how good Zen Cache or Smart Cache are ~ almost anyone can earn a few bob with any old product.

      My view, of course, and your mileage may vary.

    After using all the other ‘FREE’ caching plugins that are never really free (lets be honest here) who had ongoing errors and no support i settled on WP Rocket for all of my sites. Worth every penny.

    Yep, after reading countless reviews and hearing real stories about WP Rocket in the Advanced WordPress Facebook group, I finally decided to take the plunge. I suddenly understood what all the hype was about. I love it so much that I’ve become a WP Rocket reseller, too.

    Spent a good bit of time chatting with Jonathan and Jean-Baptiste at WCEU in Seville and they are super sharp folks creating world class products for WordPress and are absolute gents aswell. My guess is that they’ll 10x their revenue in the next 2 years.

    They have an awesome customer service and an awesome plugin. That’s the recipe. Thanks to Lucy, who helped me a lot. :-)

    Can someone tell me how this plugin is licensed? I can’t find any info regarding license for this plugin.
    If it is not a GPL licensed, how is being this plugin promoted in a site that Matt owns?

      The plugin isn’t “being promoted” here. We’re just writing up news about it. It is GPL-licensed. I spoke with the team and they are updating the website to include a link. :)

        No license info yet, nor in their website or in the downloaded plugin .zip file or in their plugin meta info, which is exactly as below:

        /*
        Plugin Name: WP Rocket
        Plugin URI: http://www.wp-rocket.me
        Description: The best WordPress performance plugin.

        So, where is Matt?

        Hi Dasfundo,
        Thank you for the remind :)

        We’ve just added the GPL licence information in the 2.6.5, you’ll be able to see it once we’ve deployed it :)

        Have a great day

        Thank you for the reply Jean.
        What about the information in your website? How your new customer will know about the license of your product?

        Hi,
        This has been added to our FAQ page.

        Very cheap trick Mister Baptiste, very cheap trick.

        Is WP Rocket GPL?
        Yes.

        The license information should be added in your T.O.S or Legal page page with link to the GPL license. I can’t believe that you are running this plugin more than 2 years without mentioning licensing information, plus wptavern published multiple news about this plugin.

        Maybe you never mentioned even in F.A.Q if someone didn’t mentioned you?

        @Dasfundo,

        I agree that the license should be clearly stated in the TOS with an appropriate link. Calling it a “cheap trick,” however, is going a bit far. It might just be that Jean-Baptiste and his colleagues haven’t given the matter sufficient thought. That’s a mistake or an oversight, but not a trick.

        What bothers me much more is all those here who have been eulogizing about the plugin, and yet who get enraged about developers who don’t always use the GPL license. Evidently, the license doesn’t really matter to them at all, otherwise they’d have asked about the license for this plugin.

        That’s because some people are selfish.

    Great post. I’ll be looking into WP Rocket for my site as well. It seems to get good reviews and it looks to be affordable.

    Congrats! We use it and it’s pretty nice. Works like a charm. My only gripe is the UI needs a tad of polish, but that’s secondary to the performance it delivers and ease of use.

    I have proudly & happily contributed to their numbers! The amount of time it’s saved over other plugins has been well worth it!
