How To Increase Website Speed Without Any Cost!

Why is your website speed is so important?

A few extra seconds could have made a huge impact on your ability to stay your visitors from the bounce and make sales.

Studies show that from 2000 to 2018, the average waiting time has dropped from 12 seconds to 7 seconds. For 2018 onward, most of the website reader expected to see your website respond within 1 to 6 second. Your website should be showing some things instead of nothing to keep your visitors to stay on your page and keep reading. You have little time to show your reader and convince them to stay on your website.

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.

The Benefits of a Linux VPS

Your business has outgrown its shared web hosting or Reseller hosting plan, but you’re not quite ready for the leap to a dedicated server. What to do? Linux VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting is the answer.

Linux VPS hosting has become very Popular, as it’s an ideal middle ground between shared hosting and the complexity of a dedicated server. Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting is a level above Reseller hosting. As the name implies, it mimics the control available with a dedicated server, but at a lower price.

The web host configures a server into several VPS accounts. Each VPS account has a share of the server’s resources allocated to it as a minimum performance standard, plus the use of additional processing resources when available. A VPS account gives you virtual root access and the ability to configure your virtual server as though you controlled an entire physical server. You have all the power of a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) server.

Typically a VPS account comes with a control panel for management. At Innovative Web Hosting Solution, cPanel’s WHM is one of the available choices. The VPS control panel allows you not only to create shared hosting accounts, as with a Reseller account, but also to create and sell Reseller accounts.

Some of the benefits of Linux VPS hosting include:

  • Guaranteed server resources allocated to your VPS account. Unlike shared and Reseller hosting, your account wouldn’t normally be affected by other users on the server.
  • Higher performance, as the resources allocated to your VPS account exceed those available to shared and Reseller hosting.
  • Root access, just as on a dedicated server, providing greater control, more features, and ways to directly access files that are often faster than using the cPanel GUI.
  • Ability to configure server-wide defaults, such as behaviour for directory indexing for all accounts under the VPS.
  • Support from the web host who creates the VPS. Innovative Web Hosting Solution, for example, offers comprehensive support with its VPS. This helps you concentrate on your own priorities, while allowing you to learn at an assisted level before moving to a dedicated server.
  • Personal nameservers, which in my opinion are one of the great advantages of VPS or reseller hosting. Instead of using nameservers provided by your host, with their name in the domain name, you create nameservers tied to your reseller domain or main domain. If your main reseller domain is “xyz.com”, you may create ns1.xyz.com and ns2.xyz.com. You can configure all your “client” accounts to use ns1. and ns2.xyz.com as their nameservers. This is better for branding your business, and makes the task of moving to a new server or host far simpler.
  • Skeleton directory, or skel, to configure default files and folder structure to be used for all new accounts under the VPS. This directory is used as a template, or skeleton, for new cPanel accounts. Anything placed in the skeleton directory is automatically copied to the home directory of any new cPanel accounts you create. As with personal nameservers, this is a great way to extend your web hosting brand. You could, for example, set all new hosting accounts to display a welcome message, your logo and contact information, and links to web hosting help files for the new hosting client.
  • Options for domain management. For example, you are able to use both Park and Redirect, depending upon your needs.

For those of us with many domains and sites who require greater configurability, a VPS account gives us everything we need. It provides the level of control of a dedicated server, but at an affordable price. For those whose web hosting needs are still evolving toward one day managing a server themselves, a VPS account is a great transition on the way to a dedicated server.
