WordPress: Best Plugin to improve your website speed in google

Today I wasted many hours to increase my website’s speed in google PageSpeed insights but I could not. I was in red color. But then I found following plugin that surprisingly increased my page speed. And now that website entered in Green on google:

Plugin: GZip Ninja Speed

URL: https://wordpress.org/plugins/gzip-ninja-speed-compression/

Further I would like to share my final .htaccess file to you. May that can also help you to reach green color for your web speed in google:

WordPress: Best Plugins to migrate website form one hosting to another hosting

Alright! Today I found an awesome, very useful and time saving plugin that can save your a lot of time if you are willing to migrate your wordpress website from one server to remote server.

Just install this plugin: Welcome to WP Clone by WP Academy

First install this plugin in first server.

Take backup and copy url of zip file of created backup.

Install WordPress in remote hosting. Install above plugin and paste the copied url in the input to import webste remotely from the WP Clone menu.

It takes just around 2 minutes to shift whole wordpress website including database and all settings.

Before this it used to take a lot of time to shift website. I used to face several technical issues.
But this method is very time saving. You don’t have to be technical at all to shift a website with this plugin.
