5 Best practices to maximize your website performance

The striking images and trending styles may appear attractive to look at, but they could prove out to

The primary motive of your website is to improve traffic and hence make money out of it. The striking images and trending styles may appear attractive to look at, but they could prove out to be unfavourable if your visitors have to wait for more than 10 seconds to get access to your site. Go through these 5 points to ensure that everything on your website is well optimized and running efficiently.

  1. Adopt Cloud-based Website Monitoring Tools:

    Some of the significant benefits of moving to a cloud-based host are efficiency, scalability and cost, to name a few. And also, this way you can focus on growing your business instead of monitoring website optimization, which matters the most anyway.

  2.  Enable Cache:

    To improve performance and reduce bandwidth, caching is used. It is used for temporary storage of web pages. When a person visits your site, the cached version will be served up to them unless it has changed since the last session. This makes things altogether faster and also saves server time.

  3. Reduce image size:

    Do not sacrifice with the quality! More than half of the websites page weight on a desktop computer is of images. You need to make sure that the pictures you are using are appropriately sized without compromising with the quality of the image. You can also adopt new image formats to help reduce image weight by 20-50%.

  4. Reduce HTTP Request:

    External HTTP requests make up for a large portion of the loading time. Examine your website with a minimalist outlook and eliminate all the features that do not contribute to improving the experience of your visitors. Removing features like additional plugins, images, JavaScript, CSS can trim the loading time and make it a responsive website.

  5. Optimize your Code:

    A readable and structured code always pays off. It decreases HTTP overload and improves maintainability. Factors, like using design patterns, optimizing database queries and avoiding recursion can contribute to enhancing your website performance significantly.

Want the best experience for your users?

While it’s good to concentrate on content, functionality and aesthetics while building your website, if the page’s load timing is slow, those things wouldn’t matter because your users will leave your site before they even experience it. Each second counts. This is the reason why website loading time should always be a priority.
