Speeding up your website
It is becoming increasingly important to make sure that your website loads as quickly as possible. Having a fast website helps SEO and also increases the usability of your website.
Here are a few things that will help improve your websites performance.
1. Host your website on a dedicated server/VPS.
If you are using shared hosting for your website, upgrading to a VPS will vastly improve your websites performance. You will need experience configuring Linux based systems.
2. Install Gzip on your VPS
3. Minify your files.
4. Optimise images.
Make sure all of your images are resized and optimised for web. Having images with large file sizes will slow down your website drastically.
