There are a lot of WordPress performance plugins out there. While all such plugins promise to speed up your WordPress site and call themselves different from the others, only a few make it up to that.
10Web Booster is one such name that brings a wind of change. It is a distinctive WordPress performance plugin developed by the popular 10Web hosting company.
In this 10Web Booster review, we will get deep into its feature set, explain how it works, and show you exactly how this plugin makes your website FAST.
But before that, let’s take a detour and get to know why it is so important for your website to be fast.
Do You Even Need Your Website to be Fast?
In one word, Yes.
According to a Google study, 53% of website visitors from mobile will leave a webpage, if it takes longer than three seconds to load.
So naturally, Google made this a priority to judge a website’s quality. Yes, your content matters. But if you lose more than half of your visitors in the first few seconds, you can not really be able to show your visitors what you have to offer, can you?
The research from Google also found out that sites that load within five seconds see an increase of 70% in average session times. And that only means more conversions.
There’s also a benchmark study from SOASTA on the importance of fast websites. According to them, optimal load times for peak conversions ranged from 1.8 to 2.7 seconds across devices.
Speed is something that is not really easy to achieve. Especially when you have a lot of content on a site. And that is where 10Web Booster comes in.

Real Performance Data Using 10Web Booster
Are you excited to see results? So are we.
We checked the performance of a website before and after using 10Web Booster. Before using 10Web Booster, this was the score we were getting in Google PageSpeed Index –
As you can see, it was good, but not excellent.
We expected 10Web Booster to help us hit a 90 on the home page. The result, however, exceeded our expectations. We got a score of 99 in both Mobile and Desktop after using it.
Pros and Cons of 10Web Booster
We used 10Web Booster for a couple of days to monitor its performance and to find out if we faced any issues. However, that was not the case. Still, we wanted to show you a comparative list of its pros and (minor) cons that we thought you need to know.
The Pros of 10Web Booster
- It’s free to use
- World-class UI; makes it very easy to use.
- Works on any hosting
- The optimization process is super fast and you see the PageSpeed score right on their dashboard
- 10Web is known for their awesome support
The Cons of 10Web Booster
- Separate pricing for 10Web Booster would be great rather than bundling it with the whole 10Web suite
- Couldn’t find any documentation, but the plugin is relatively new, so they might be on it.
10Web Booster Pricing
10Web Booster’s free plugin is more than capable. It does an excellent job to speed up websites. However, the free plan only optimizes a homepage and 5 other pages.
If you want to optimize other pages, you can also opt for 10Web Booster pro which offers the following features.
The premium version starts at $10/mo for 1 website. You can also save some bucks by purchasing it for 3 websites, this premium plan costs $24/mo.
If you are an agency or need the tool for more websites, the agency plan would cost you $60/mo for 10 websites.
Although the pricing plan is communicated to be for 10Web Booster Pro, actually it is the pricing for 10Web’s whole suite.
This includes –
- 10Web Premium Hosting
- AI Builder
- And of course, the 10Web Booster
We believe a standalone pricing plan for 10Web Booster pro for unlimited pages and unlimited image optimization would be better for those who don’t want to migrate to 10Web hosting. This would also bring down the price point for the end user.
However, for the price, it is an excellent deal to purchase the 10Web Suite. Moreover, you can get a 30% off on the pricing with the code WPHIVE30.
