Close WordPress vulnerabilities.

Handle massive pageloads quickly.

Be in control of your WordPress hosting.

Unparalleled security

Stop exposing your WordPress server to the public. Host locally or privately, only deploying a secure, static version of your site to the public.

Your content, on the edge

Other methods can optimize your site to run faster. Only going static gives you the option to get your whole site distributed globally, so users from any country get the fastest possible pageloads.

Say goodbye to hosting costs

A $5/month VPS can handle massive traffic spikes with a static site. You can even choose from free, globally distributed static site hosts.

Faster than caching plugins

No such thing as a cache miss. Caching plugins are a band-aid solution to WordPress performance issues. Time to rip it off and fix them for good.

Keep selling

Whilst WooCommerce doesn't play nice with static sites, Snipcart is a platform-independent, modern eCommerce solution that works great.

Rank higher

Compatible with all Yoast and other SEO plugins. Google also prefers fast-loading sites that don't have a history of being hacked / infected with malware

Environmentally responsible

More than 70 billion KiloWatt hours a year are used to power the internet. With WordPress running 30% of websites, it's time we get efficient.

Local speeds, globally

Only a fully static website can easily be replicated around the world, so that users in Sao Paulo, Tokyo, Frankfurt and Paris, for example, are all being served your website at local speeds.

Simplified WP devops

Your global content team can keep collaborating and you can deploy a snapshot of the site via git and your CI/CD tooling. WordPress has never been so manageable for large companies.

Continued development

Not a fly-by-night operation, WP2Static has been around for 10 years and is now the fulltime project of Leon Stafford. Soon to be incorporated into a European company.

Contact forms simplified

With 3rd party free plugins, your Contact Form 7 or other contact form works seamlessly with your secure, fast static site.

First class support from developer

Leon values support and believes in being close to the customer. Your support questions are often answered within 30 mins of asking. 24 hr response time can be expected via email, GitHub, forum or Slack.

I used this plugin to generate a static page from a WordPress page I make with Elementor. There was one photo that didn’t get linked properly, but it was pretty trivial to fix that and the rest of it worked great. I’m very impressed.

Does what it says, and deployment of the static site is quick and painless. Has lots of options if I want to fine-tune how I use it. Love it!

There are two levels to this review. (1) the plugin is brilliant. This drops the resource requirement for running your site by basically an order of magnitude. It’s significantly faster on a much smaller VM. Also, of course, it takes away the massive attack surface that is WordPress. (2) Leon’s support is amazing. I have paid a lot of money for plugins and themes and used their support. Leon provides this open source and free of charge, and his support was incredibly fast, attentive, and he fixed my problem in no time at all. Outstanding. Kudos!
Works great and awesome support!

This is an awesome plugin, specially the latest version. Super fast static site generation (unlike other plugins) and once it’s in S3+Cloudfront the website really flies. Leon gives awesome support and cares about the product. I do recommend the premium version!

I am sick of dealing with and worrying about security issues. Brute force attacks, SQL injection attacks, plugin and theme exploits. I am totally and utterly over it. All this security stuff has taken away the joy of building with WordPress. Until now. When I heard about this plugin from an Elegant Themes Blog post, I realised this was the answer to my prayers. Seriously, I’ve been wanting a miracle and now it’s here. Leon, you are brilliant. Thank you so much for this plugin and for all the personal help you gave me when I started testing this plugin. You got it working on my preferred Hosting and put in a lot of time and effort. Your work has re-injected me with a new enthusiasm for WordPress. After the 5.0 upgrade I am going to start contacting my clients and seeing which ones we can move to HTML. Going forward, I really want to focus on building info sites and leave the other complicated stuff to less tired developers and designers. Thank you again – I will be buying Premium soon. Belinda

But this plugin is absolutely phenomenal. While Automattic keeps barking up what I think is the wrong tree with their Bloatenberg project, along comes a guy like Leon and smacks the nail on the head so hard it penetrates right into WordPress’ brain. This is the way forward for WordPress, not Gutenberg. The problem is, I don’t want my competition to come across this. While everyone’s snacking on BloatPress, I want to sneak in my lean, healthy version of the same software, without giving away the game. Alas, Leon’s plugin deserves a high rating, so I caved.
Excellent plugin, very responsive author!

We contracted Leon for support, and to make some customizations to his excellent plugin for a specific client project. Despite being on a +12hr time difference, he was very responsive and delivered a great product – and now all these neat new features [hooks + filters] are part of the plugin core code for everyone to enjoy! It was a pleasure working with him and getting a peek inside how the plugin works – we would recommend his plugin (and skills).

I tried plugin wp2static in [link redacted] and result is perfect. I have a new static site, but I can do it static and with HTML code. The advantage in pure html is that control every detail, as long as the plugin generates the code but with all the WP problems that you need to fix it. Cache plugins, SEO plugins, etc. However, I liked the whole procedure and for quick things I would do it again. I recommend.

Thanks for making the right choice to go static. I believe that 98% of WordPress sites should be hosted statically. WordPress, when combined with page builders, is a great open source tool for creating websites. Going static solves the biggest downsides of WordPress, namely security, performance and choice of hosting providers.
