Why my website loading speed is slow?

There are tons of factors that impact website loading speed/time. Most of the time, website loading are impacted by a few important criteria like: web page size, page HTTP requests, Images Sizes, files request, web hosting respond time and so on. There are many different steps you can take to increase your speed and improve the user experience.

Your loading speed is alwaysn affected by PAGE SIZE.

Page Size – Mainly images that aren’t optimized for your website. Those original photos can have huge file sizes. The file format and the compression ratio you choose in your editing software, you can decrease your image size by up to 8x. Which mean if your web page file size is 8MB, you can reduce it to 1MB. This could impact 70-80% of your website loading speed. Most of the time you can feel it on your own is because you keep browsing your website with your own computer, and the browser like chrome will store the web page cache and automatically prefetch when you browse your own website. However, a normal user who is visiting your website for the first time may not have the same experience.

What is the first step and where to get started?

You must have the tools to let you know, how many requests needed for your page load and the file size on every time you load on the web page and so on.For optimizing process, we recommend you to test your website speed using tools like PageSpeed InsightsGTmetrixPingdom.

1.Reduce Image Size – Optimize Images for Speed

Images affected your site speed. Original images often very large files, which can slow down web page load times. If you own an eCommerce website, you probably think of the images is very important for your website, there is no way to remove them or lower down the file size that will affect your visitors’ experience.

2. Minimize HTTP Requests

An HTTP request is made for each element, so the more on-page components, the longer it takes for the page to render. You can check the http request using the tools previously mentioned, such as GTMatrix or using Google Chrome Developer Tools to see how many HTTP requests your site makes.

3.Consider Minify and Combine Files

You can reduce this number by minifying and combining your files. This will reduce the total number of files and file size. Instead of access to 3 files, you website currently access to only 1 file.

By doing this, we went from a webpage that required three CSS files to load to a webpage that only requires one CSS file to load. Hence, this will significantly increase the speed of access to your hosting web file and it will affect the final loading speed of your website.

If you are a WordPress user, you can just install a CSS / JavaScript that will help you optimize all of this work for you.

4.Choose The Right Hosting Plan

Most of the website owners choose the cheapest hosting to host their website. For the new website that serve few visitors, that is okay. If your website is serving up to thousands of visitors per days, we suggest you get to premium business hosting for better response and smoother respond for your visitors. This is the easiest way to manage a hosting with almost VPS respond of speed. It still depends on the content you are hosting, if the content is heavy with images, video, heavy css, it will slow down your website load time too.
