Why Use CompressWP?

It is a simple, lightweight WordPress plugin to compress your images for a significantly smaller size.

Improve page load speed

Compressing your images reduces their file size up to 90%, which results in a significantly faster website, thus providing better experience to your visitors.

Simple WordPress plugin

We have developed a ridiculously easy-to-use WordPress plugin that connects with our compression servers to compress your images. The process is magical.

Improve SEO rankings

Google has stated that since users place a lot of value in speed, they've decided to take site speed into account in their search rankings.

Enhance user engagement

Optimizing your images and improving your page load speed significantly means your customers will spend more time on your website.

Useful features

Using our plugin you can compress single images or use the bulk-compress feature to compress your entire media library.

Multiple Servers

Our compression servers are located in multiple places in USA and Europe to provide with the quickest compression wherever your website is located.

How does it work?

All the magic is done by our compression servers automatically.


All your images are sent to our compression server one at a time in a matter of seconds. Including all your thumbnail sizes!


Your images are compressed automatically (we can reduce file size up to 90%), while still keeping the same lossless quality.


The images are sent back to your website, which in result will use less disk space, load much faster and your visitors won't see a difference.
