    WP Rocket is paid but simple and excellent (or search on BHW...) or any other caching plugin. Just make sure you test as you tweak settings.

    Also, image compression plugins like resmush can help A LOT.

    WOrdpress is a big bloat. Why dont you try to make it without wordpress at all. Yes it will take some time but you will be happy forever. and you will have all the control of your website

    I would first examine my web hosting situation, if you're on a good web hosting platform then things you can do to speed up your wordpress would be:
    • Install WP-Super Cache or W3Total Cache
    • Host your images on a CDN, such as CloudFront
    • Look for any 3rd party content that's loading(this is a common problem)
    But mainly, I'd look and see wtf is wrong with my host.

    Why you guys paying to someone, when you can do it manualy?
    Set nginx cache in nginx conf
    Modify/optimize your php.ini
    You can search in google "nginx speed up ", there is a lot easy tutorials, even for beginners.

    What are you using to measure your page load time? What load speed is at 6 seconds but i think I can speed it up some more.
