Click here to download the latest version (v1.0.0) of the plugin.



Before installing make a backup of your Magento site as a precaution. If you have a development environment it is recommended that you install the plugin there first to test and confirm functionality.

You will need a Peakhour account to be able to utilise this extension. If you don't already have one you can sign up here, installation of the extension does not automatically create an account for you. Pricing is based on page views and all new signups get a free trial. Once you have your account the only other change you need to make to activate our acceleration and web application firewall is a DNS change. Do not enable the plugin until you have successfully configured your domain behind the Peakhour service.
