Best Caching Plugin for Nginx Server Hosted in DigitalOcean

Recently I have Migrated to DigitalOcean and thinking to speed up my website.
I am using Genesis Framework and Cloudflare.
I am using Autoptimize plugin right now
I used W3 Total Cache with this guide but got 500 internal server error.
Right now my website loads under 5s, before that in Hostgator it was loading around 6-7s. Can I achieve the load time under 2s?
Did I miss something?
I am using Google Tag Manager, One Signal, Facebook Pixel Code.
Thank You

Hi,

Digital Ocean is a great choice for the hosting. It’s a cost-effective solution for the best performance.

You can pair WP Super Cache with Autoptimize, it should work fine. Avoid W3TC, it’s not easy to setup.

Looks good…

Try wp rocket if you want to go for a premium one. I have been using it for a long time now. It does help a lot.
