What this plugin can do for you

Automatic Platform Optimization (APO)

Speed up your WordPress site by up to 300% with Cloudflare’s Automatic Platform Optimization (APO) plugin. APO allows Cloudflare to serve your entire WordPress site from our edge network of over 250+ data centers worldwide ensuring fast & reliable performance for your visitors no matter where they are.

Optimizing your WordPress site with multiple plugins can be overwhelming. Take your WordPress site’s performance to the next level by switching to a single plugin for CDN, intelligent caching, and other key WordPress optimizations with Cloudflare (APO). Visit our announcement blog to learn more about APO.

What makes APO different from other caching plugins?

The key differentiating factor between Cloudflare APO and other traditional page caching and CDN solutions is its ability to directly cache static HTML at Cloudflare’s edge. Every other plugin and CDN will cache your static assets (images, javascript, CSS), but none help you cache the actual content on your site (the HTML) using a massive edge network like Cloudflare’s.

APO intelligently caches your HTML pages and will automatically purge content from the cache that you update, so users will always see the latest content without compromising the performance of pages that haven’t been recently updated

What you get with Cloudflare APO

APO is a $5 add-on with Cloudflare’s free plan and comes with an unlimited amount of subdomains. With APO you also get to leverage many of the other benefits of Cloudflare such as Free DNS, Free Automated SSL Certificates, Free DDoS Mitigation, and more. APO is free for all paid plan users so if you have Cloudflare Pro or Business already you can just turn it on. You can compare all our plans here.

Protect your WordPress site with Cloudflare’s Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Cloudflare’s WAF is available on all our paid plans and comes with built-in rulesets, specifically tailored to mitigate WordPress threats and vulnerabilities. These security rules are regularly updated by our team of experts. At the flip of a switch, you’ll have your WAF up and running without any difficult adjustments to your site. With over 26 million internet properties under our protection, you can sleep easy knowing Cloudflare has your back.
