Plugin Performance Monitor is the best way to identify performance problems with your website without the need for deep technical understanding.
Have you ever had your website suddenly become slow? Or even go offline after maybe installing a plugin or making some changes to your website? Unless you are a Pro when it comes to websites, you may never be able to pinpoint the root cause of the problem.
WordPress is such an amazing content management system that has helped a lot of businesses launch their online presence but it can be a pain at times especially when your website gives you performance problems yet you are unable to identify the causes. But what if there was a simpler way to identify any problems within your WordPress website before they even become problems?
Nexcess, a fully managed high-performance cloud platform built to optimize WordPress has just announced the release of a Plugin Performance Monitor that comes with all their hosting plans at no extra cost to the users. According to a statement released by Nexcess, the plugin has the ability to capture and compare the performance of a WordPress site before and after plugin or theme changes have been made. This will help with identifying the files in your site that are contributing to changes in load times. The plugin runs nightly performance tests on your website then reports the results to you with data collected about your website’s performance.
Many entry-level webmasters are not versed much with WordPress architecture. This makes it hard for them to know what exactly the problem will be with their website when it starts changing in performance. Many problems occur when changes are made to a website – maybe a new plugin was installed in the hopes of getting a certain feature or there was a theme installation or update that turned out to be buggy. I have installed two different cache plugins at the same time and created a conflict that slowed down – I identified the conflict because I consider myself when it comes to Websites but what if you are not a Pro?
How does the Plugin Performance Monitor work?
The Plugin Performance Monitor does not only tell you that your website is slow but goes further than that. The plugin notifies you where exactly to look and constantly gives you feedback on the effects of the changes you are making. The same Plugin Performance Monitor can also help commerce stores beyond monitoring overall site performance by connecting performance with revenue growth or loss.
Plugin Performance Monitor is included in the cost of the Managed WooCommerce and Managed WordPress Hosting plans on Nexcess. In order to see how the changes you made to your site are affecting performance, the plugin runs daily and keeps tabs on every insight.
With this newly added feature, the first of its kind on any Managed WooCommerce and Managed WordPress Hosting plans, you do not have the need to hire and incur extra costs for a developer to simply identify problems with your website so as to restore performance. Instead, you are pointed in the right direction where the problem is and what the actual problem is so that you can fix it even by yourself without those extra costs.
Customers will be able to open the Nexcess Performance panel in their WordPress dashboard and see performance score changes, and the drivers of those changes.
