Tips to Speed up your website
You can follow the tips which have mentioned below as they will help you in speeding up the website speed.
- Minimize HTTP Requests: - The speed of a website is dependent on different parts of the web page such as style sheets, images, flash, scripts etc. The more are the number of elements on your website the more are the http requests. As there are more http requests it will take time to load the website. To minimize the HTTP requests you can simplify the design of your website. Instead of using images on your website you can use CSS. Reduce the number of scripts you are using and put them in the bottom.
- Reduce Server Response Time: - Server response time plays a very important role in page load speed of a website. You can tweak your server as it will help you in reducing the server response time of your website.
- Enable Compression: - If there are big pages present on your website they will definitely slow down your website. You can keep the large pages by decreasing their load time. You can compress them into gzip compression which will not only save your bandwidth but will also reduce the HTTP response.
- Enable Browser Caching: - If you have enabled browser caching on your website it will increase the speed of your website. With browser caching all the elements of a website are stored in the hard drive of a computer in temporary storage or cache. As the elements are stored in the temporary storage the next time you will visit the same website it won’t take time to load the website as the elements are already cached. Make sure that you have enabled browser cache on your website.
