How to install and using Disqus comments on blogs that use WordPress is not difficult. Have you heard of Disqus before? For information, Disqus is a comment and discussion feature service on a website.
The Disqus plugin makes it easy for you to comment on a website. In addition, the existence of this plugin makes the content more interactive. This service connects the website with people who comment through the discussion community.
If you have a lot of comments on WordPress posts, this will make the website load longer. Causing a load on the server increases if many visitors are commenting at the same time.
With the features of comments from third parties such as Disqus, this will provide benefits such as reducing the burden on the server. In fact, in terms of security, if a website is hit by a spam attack via the comment form, it will not affect your website because it is through Disqus’s system first.
If you run a website that is quite large through several servers, with the comment feature can help redundancy. You don’t need to worry about synchronizing comments, because it’s not related to your database. Disqus comments are linked through the URL of the posting on your website.
