Leap is a tool that allows you to make your website extremely fast for visitors and page speed tools by using a simple interface.
It can be used by navigating to the "Speed" tab in your publisher dashboard.
Leap allows you to quickly test and implement advanced site speed optimizations on your site. This allows you to quickly see what site speed adjustments are able to produce the best user experiences, page speed scores, and other related goals.
Quick facts about Leap:
Leap is free for all publishers that are monetized with Ezoic. Non-monetization publishers can have access to Leap through the Ezoic Pro subscription, which costs 5.99$ for monthly plans or 49.99$ with an annual plan.
There are 3 integration methods that can be used to access Leap:
Name server or Cloudflare integration options are recommended for almost all sites.
All sites should be prompted to integrate upon signing up to use Leap. Integrating via Cloudflare or WordPress plugin should provide almost instant integration and access to the full features of Leap.
Watch videos of integration with Name Server Integration and WordPress Plugins below...
NOTE: If you've completed Name Server integration, it can take up to 18 hours for DNS records to propagate so that sites can leverage Leap.
- There's no way to make this happen faster; however, you can finish configuring the tool and Ezoic will notify you via email once Name Servers are propagated and integration is fully-complete
Note: Wordpress integration provides a slightly slower score and visitor experience due to the nature of the CMS. Name server integration offers faster speed.

Technical Functions and Features Explained...

How Do I Get Started?
You can make a new version by clicking “create version” and naming it. You can create as many versions as you like.
Versions let you try different combinations of features to find the one that both performs the best and fits your content and layout. There are different actions you can perform with the versions you have created that are listed under “Actions”: Edit Version, Clone Version, Clear Preview Version and Archive Version.
You can also clone a version you’ve created in order to test different variations of the version you’re deciding on. For example, if you wanted to try out what effect the render critical CSS version would have in conflation with the lazy load images you could clone the CSS version and add the lazy load images function to it and test both together.
You can also preview a version you have created before you activate the version. Click "Preview" to preview the version and "Activate" to activate the version:
Before activating a version, you can preview it (under actions) to review the changes on your site. You can also perform a site speed score test on a preview version. It is highly recommended that you preview any version before setting it live.
Note: When you are looking at a previewed version, you are cookied in. You will need to click "Clear Preview Version" once you are done in order to look at the original site.
To finally activate a version, simply click on the version you'd like to activate and click "Activate".
You are able to manage your Leap subscription by clicking “Manage Subscription” directly from the app! This will allow you to select your subscription level, add a form of payment, or cancel your subscription.
If you decide you no longer want to use Leap on your site, please make sure that you cancel your subscription before turning Leap off in your Dashboard.
