In 2006, Amazon revealed that for every a hundred milliseconds they seed up their platform, the increase their revenue by 1 percent. In an effort to make the web a better space, Google announced that page load speed would be a consideration in how sites are ranked in SERPs. Since then, there has never been a shortage of case studies indicating the benefits of making sure that your site loads fast.
Here is how to increase your site’s speed.
Use dedicated servers
Look at the entire issue this way, if you purchase hosting space for one site (in the case of shared hosting), you are simply renting space from a server that is probably hosting thousands of websites. These sites eat up bandwidth, processing memory, disk space, and other resources. Since the server owner wants each site to run correctly, he or she will set limits for every website to maximize returns.
What happens is, the website owners get unseen sanctions from the server in terms of limited disk space, bandwidth, and processing memory. There is no problem with these sanctions when you are starting up. However, as your business grows, you will realize you need more control and a higher level of resources. A dedicated server (aka Servidor dedicado) is the best solution to this issue as you will have all the tools and you need to boost the performance of your website.
Optimize the images
Ensure that images on your website adhere to the set standards regarding image size and format. For instance, PNG files are better for graphics with less than 16 colors while JPEG files are better for photographs. It’s advisable to ensure that these files are effectively compressed for the site.
Use a caching plugin
Remove all unnecessary plugins
Note that every plugin you add to your website needs resources to run efficiently. That means having many plugins on your website will require more resources, making your site to run slowly. Uninstall all the unnecessary plugins to speed up the website.
