    Good hosting, non bloated theme, using caching plugins that will minify and combine HTML, CSS, JS.

    From my experience, a good server is a must. Think about your budget and if you can afford a better provider/server in general, go for it. Second to that comes using an optimized theme, caching, and minifying HTML, CSS, and JS. Maybe a CDN if your audience is disperse around the globe.

    Few things that should be taken into consideration - First the template: A good template will load properly, have proper coding (no error), and best coding practices that speed up loading. Then install caching plugins both on the server side and on WP. Then make sure that your server is optimal - if it's dedicated, that would be the best.

    I had the same question half a year ago.

    If you're short on money:
    - move to cloudflare
    - use nginx, apache is slow
    - use caching plugins like wp rocket
    - google for mysql optimisations

    If you want best results and have some spare money - contact @kindablack and let him do his magic!

    I try to upload webp images to my WordPress several times but it's doesn't work properly since I can't upload the image with .webp. Do you have any suggest?

    generally wordpress is shit if talkig about speed. yesterdy brian dean send email with his meta study of websites speed.

    from my perspective hosting for wordpress gives extra 20-30 in google speed test. also optimiza images (smush is okay), and use lazy load on pictures
