BoldGrid and W3 Total Cache Join Forces
WordPress users benefit from the perfect complement of products and services
BoldGrid, an industry leader in building and managing WordPress sites, announced recently that it has joined forces with W3 EDGE, which built one of the top-ranking WordPress web performance optimization plugins, W3 Total Cache (W3TC). As sister brands, their products will now be offered across both brands.
Core members of the Total Cache team, including one of the leaders in the WordPress industry, Frederick Townes will be working closely with the BoldGrid team to continue to add valuable features to the Total Cache product as well as improve user experience and support.
“I’m grateful that W3TC is trusted by millions of publishers, web developers and hosts worldwide for more than a decade for providing superior web performance optimization,” said Frederick Townes, creator of W3 Total Cache. “We are excited to join forces with BoldGrid and look forward to the added value this partnership brings to both BoldGrid and W3TC customers.”
Well known in the industry as a robust and advanced caching plugin, W3TC improves user experience on customers’ sites by increasing site performance and reducing load times with features like CDN integration and latest best practices. One of its superior benefits is that it improves search engine result page rankings, especially for mobile-friendly websites and sites that use SSL, often producing at least 10x improvement in overall site performance and improved conversion rates, which affect a site’s rank on Google.
“With the help of W3 Total Cache, users enjoy reduced page load time, increased visitor time on their site and see visitors view more pages during a session,” BoldGrid Development Manager, Brad Markle said, “This improved web server performance allows customers to sustain high traffic periods with up to 80 percent bandwidth savings.”
“Since joining with the awesome team at W3, we have been working to add in some slick new features like Caching Statistics and Lazy Loading,” BoldGrid Product Manager Harry Jackson added. “We are also looking to partner with theme and plugin developers to ensure the widest range of compatibility for the product, and the WordPress Community.”
With BoldGrid and W3TC now operating under the same umbrella as sister brands, WordPress users benefit from the perfect complement of products and services offered by BoldGrid and W3TC.
