    STEP 1 - CACHING PLUGIN
    The plugin W3 Total Cache will cache and compress a load of files to reduce page download time.
    Log into WordPress as admin
    Plugins -> Add New -> Search ‘total cache' -> Install ‘W3 Total Cache'
    Plugins -> Activate W3 Total Cache
    Under the new ‘Performance' menu -> General Settings -> Select the following:
    Enable ‘Page cache'
    Enable ‘Minifiy' (keep default settings)
    Enable ‘Browser cache'
    Click any ‘save all settings' button
    Select ‘Empty the page cache' notification if it appears at the top of the page
    Double check your WordPress site/blog to make sure everything is working

    STEP 2 - .HTACCESS MODICATION (APACHE SERVER ONLY)
    Modifying the .htaccess file to tell the browser to cache and compress various files to reduce server load and improve page speed performance.
    FTP Download the .htaccess file from the root of your WordPress site
    Open the .htaccess file using your favourite text editor
    Copy and paste the below code at the end of the file and re-upload
