W3 Total Cache

A cache plugin that will accelerate load times of your WordPress site while minimizing the load on your server. Highly recommended for any site that needs to load fast.

Perfmatters

The main way this plugin helps speed up your site is by disabling things that might not be used on your site. For example, by default emojis load on every single page of your site. If you don’t use them, this is simply slowing it down. By disabling it, the script no longer loads and so it reduces your overall number of HTTP requests and your page size. Another great optimization is to limit your post revisions. These can quickly fill up your database and slow down your site. By limiting them you can ensure a fast and snappy database.

Utility

Redirection

Create redirects by specifying any URL within your site and sending visitors to a different location. Great for fixing broken links and managing affiliates.
