I would like to know if I could use this plugin in some way so as to speed up my wordpress sites and provide fallback for them.
I have 2 servers at the moment, a vps and a shared hosting - both centos with cpanel.

thanks

The FAQ has additional information.  Basically, this plug-in lets you configure things more efficiently assuming you took defaults and didn't already customize your configuration to do these things.

So in other words, it may or may not make things better.  You need to assess for yourself if the features in the FAQ are relevant to your configuration.
