What three WordPress plugins do I install on all new site builds these days?
- Cloudflare performs as a CDN (Content Delivery Network), delivering content from the location closest to the site visitor. The free tier includes speed optimizations, DDoS attack mitigation, web traffic reports and more.
- Jetpack is a WordPress Swiss Army knife offering downtime monitoring, brute force attack protection, lazy loading images, and many more design and marketing tools. +1 for being an official Automattic, the folks behind WordPress, offering.
- WP Super Cache generates static HTML files from your dynamic WordPress site. Even while having its own CDN support, it compliments Cloudflare’s speed optimizations. Another +1 for being maintained by Automatticians.
