Manage your websites and servers with Moss’s Free Plan

Manage your websites and servers with Moss’s Free Plan

- - Articles

When we started Moss we had a clear objective in mind: Help developers create and deploy their websites reliably and easily. Let them focus on their job while Moss takes care of server configs, zero-downtime deployments, and everything required to have a robust and secure setup without the sysadmin hassle.

Today, we think we’re one step closer to such goal. We’ve updated the price plans of Moss so that most teams can have access to it regardless their budget. Yes, we’ve released a Free Plan you can use to manage all your servers and sites. Once you’re getting enough value from Moss and your requirements go up, you can upgrade to a paid plan.

Thanks to this continuous learning process and the effort of our team, now I’m proud to announce our new version of Moss. A major update that puts the focus on the unique features that set Moss apart: real-time visibility, security, and integration with 3rd-parties.

W3TC offers lots of functionality for free, while some premium features are unlocked when the user upgrades to their Pro plan. However, the plugin lacks some documentation and it’s not always easy to understand which features must be enabled and set up.

In the remainder of this article I’ll review the main caches you can set up with W3TC in order to optimize WordPress. You’ll see how they work and the main settings you can fine-tune. I’ll also point out at some alternative solutions you might explore in some – more advanced – use cases. Let’s start!
