5 Tips to Increase Your Website’s Speed and Performance

Creating a fast and efficient website is key for customer experience and improved search engine rankings. Slow loading and poor performance can be disastrous for your website and negatively affect your business. Here are 5 tips to help you increase the speed and performance of your website:

1. Use a Reliable Web Host

Using a reliable and reputable web hosting company is essential for a high-performance website. Make sure to choose a company that offers good storage, uptime and support. We recommend Inmotion hosting for all your web hosting needs.

2. Optimize Your Images

Images are often one of the main causes of slow loading. Make sure to optimize your images for web use. Find out which file type is best for your images and compress them to reduce their file sizes.

3. Limit and Monitor Plugins

Plugins can be great but they can also slow down your website. Limit the number of plugins you use and make sure they are up to date. Monitor their performance and delete any that are no longer being used or are slowing your website down.

4. Reduce HTTP Requests

The more files you have on your website, the more HTTP requests are made when pages are loaded. Reduce the number of files on your website and your page load time will decrease.

5. Enable Browser Caching

Browser caching allows visitors to store a copy of files on their computer. This reduces the amount of files they have to download each time they visit your website, speeding up the process.

Follow these tips and your website’s speed and performance will improve to create a better customer experience.
