The self-hosted WordPress blogs are more powerful than any other blogging platform. Using WordPress is very easy and it comes with number of plugins to make it much more user-friendly. Generally WordPress blog are SEO optimized and drives huge traffic.But as the traffic on the blog increases, the loading time increases as well because it takes to load all the scripts and plugins. The reason behind writing this article is my blog use temporary suspended since it consumes more resource in web hosting server.
403 Forbidden Error
I was getting the following error when opening the blog,
“You don’t have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”
Then when I contacted the hosting company their reply was,
“I could see that you are having shared hosting.
All the shared server having 500-600 domains each & every domains share the same resource like (CPU, RAM & processor).
If you reached more then 75% of cpu resource which is lead to server down that’s why you will get such kind of message.
Kindly consult with your script provider/programmer to optimize your (script/data base) to get resolve the issue in future.”
They asked me to do SQL database indexing. So, I installed Wp Database Optimizer plugin to optimize the database. In this post I will share 5 useful plugins to speed up your WordPress blog.
5 Excellent WordPress plugins to Speedup Blog
The following plugins will improve blog loading time and reduce the server resource (CPU, RAM & Processor) usage.

After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts. By using this plugin you will speed up your WordPress blog significantly.

4. Wp Minify
This plugin integrates the Minify engine into your WordPress blog. The Minify engine then returns a consolidated, minified, and compressed script or style for WP Minify to reference in the WordPress header.Once enabled, this plugin will combine and compress JS and CSS files to reduce the loading time of your web page.
Wp Database Optimizer is an excellent plugin which allows for automated scheduled database optimization. The user can specify (in days) how long in between automated optimizations.
