How We Can Dramatically Improve Your Website Speed
A Slow Website is Bad for Business (literally!)
We’ve mentioned this before in a different blog post, so as a quick recap here are the main points:
- The average person expects a webpage to load in 2 seconds
- 80% of people won’t ‘buy again’ from a slow website
- A 1-second delay in page load time can decrease page views by 11%
- A 1-second delay in page load time can decrease conversions by 7%
So bearing the stats mentioned above in mind, it is clearly beneficial to get your website as fast as possible. Because if a slow website results in decreases, then the opposite is true for a faster site. Why miss out on more conversions?
Slow WordPress? We Can Help.
We’ve come up with a form of hosting that can dramatically improve your website’s speed.
We call it ‘Fast WordPress Hosting‘ and it does what it says on the tin. You may have seen that we moved our own website onto this hosting. As a result, we experienced a 10x improvement to our site’s load time! And we like to think it wasn’t exactly slow beforehand.
While the results for this are certainly impressive because it’s our own site it could be considered a biased test. Fair enough.
Then how about a website that isn’t HA Hosting?
Another Dramatic Improvement
We decided to move Stuart’s personal website to be on our Fast WordPress Hosting, to see how much of a difference it would make. Take a look at the graph below, at the difference when it was switched.
As you can see, the switch happened at 10 am. And the difference is amazing (if we say so ourselves)! The load time has gone from 1200ms to 110ms – almost an 11x improvement! Bear in mind that these are a ‘base’ level and other factors such as your internet speed, traffic etc will also affect the load time of a page. Even still, this site is now considerably faster!
You can find Stuart’s own blog on the hosting switch here, and judge how fast his site is yourself.
