How to speed up Magento website?
If you Magento is running slow, our Magento Performance Improvement Service is the answer. Optimize your Magento website with the performance optimization service.
Magento Performance Improvement Service will enhance the following areas
- Time to First Byte (TTFB) is dramatically decreased
- Merge and minification of JS and CSS files
- HTML minification
- Image optimization without quality loss
- Fewer requests to a server
- Page size is reduced
- CPU and Memory usage tracking in Magento admin panel
- Email-alerts are sent if CPU usage is too high
- PHP and a web-server are configured properly
As a result, your website will become much faster and stable.
Time to first byte (TTFB) is a time period between an initial request to a server and a server response. This is one of the key indicators of web page speed. TTFB should be lower than 1 second.
Image optimization without quality loss
Most of page content (about 60%) consists of images Most of the volume of pages (about 60%) is taken by images. It is obvious that compression of images (image optimization) will significantly reduce the total size of web pages.
Our Compressor is able to optimize images of jpg, png and gif types.
Tip: Use GTMetrix service to check whether images are optimized on your Magento store.
Merge and minification of JS and CSS files
Merge is combining files of the same type into a single file. For example, a browser will load one merged CSS-file of 1Mb faster than 5 CSS-files of 200Kb due to fewer requests to a server.
Minification is a process of removing all excess information from JS/CSS files, which reduces the size of the resulting file.
Tip: Use GTMetrix service to check whether JS and CSS files are merged and minified.
You can improve overall page speed if HTML content of a page will be minified. Minified HTML code is faster delivered, parsed and rendered by the browser.
Reduced number of requests to a server
Request processing has 4 steps: delivering of a request from a browser to a server, processing the request on the server side, delivering the response to the browser and processing the response on the browser side. Each step takes time. Thus, the more requests a browser makes, the slower the page loading speed is . In addition, our service includes encountering and elimination of unnecessary/unused/duplicated scripts, libraries and other resources.
Page size is reduced
Image optimization, GZIP compression, merge of JS/CSS files, eliminating excess files and CSS/JS/HTML minify allow significantly decreasing overall page size. Obviously, the lower page size is, the faster it is loaded.
CPU and Memory usage tracking. Email alerts to a system administrator.
To understand and analyse the performance of your web-server and Magento, it is crucial to have a tool that allows tracking CPU and Memory usage for the last 30 days (or even more). Our Performance Monitoring Magento extension is used for that purpose. Its detailed reports have the list of top website and system transactions, which is very helpful in determining bottlenecks. In addition, it allows sending emails to notify a system administrator on high CPU load.
PHP and a web-server are configured properly
This service includes key enhancements of a web-server and PHP configuration. For example, it is important to enable mod_expires, mod_gzip (used to accelerate processing of client requests). We can also modify some PHP parameters (memory_limit, max_execution_time, etc.) if necessary.
