Is Your Website Slow?

Website hosting can be the reason your website is loading slow – which has an effect upon your website rankings and the business it brings. 

Website hosting is the space you rent that allows your website to be accessed by the Internet.  Every website has a hosting account, yes even yours.

Not all hosting accounts are equal – website performance starts at the hosting level.

Is your website slow?Most businesses start with shared hosting. It is the cheapest available and most hosting companies offer it as entry level hosting. I have used shared hosting for many years. I have also had issues with my website loading slow both on mobile and desktop, security issues, and up time issues. I have discovered that all of these issues are related to shared hosting and not my website directly. Over the years I have used various plugins to try to resolve these issues and I have had some success, but not the results I would like. 

I have learned that some servers are set up to cache at the server level. They can also compress images, combat hacking with server settings, and make a website perform better and faster. These types of hosting services are generally called Managed Hosting – because they manage many features for you.

Managed WordPress hosting is the best type of hosting for any WordPress website. We offer the best performance possible for WordPress websites. It is feature rich and performance first.

The below 4 images shows the excellent improvements for my own website, PremiumWebsites.net.

These comparisons are on a website with 45 pages and an active blog with 241 posts. There are hundreds of images and calls to outside services like merchant processors. For a small business this is a fairly large website. What about websites more like yours? See the bottom of this page for more comparisons.

I have struggled with speed of my own website for years. I finally chose to leave shared hosting and use the Managed WordPress hosting (the same service I am offering here) for my own website. My load speed went from 13 seconds to 2 seconds! That is the difference between someone leaving my website because it loads too slow vs actually reading my website.

My website no longer has any “F”s! All “A”s here – a report I am proud to show off!

Since mobile has become the main device for viewing websites, mobile load speed is more important now than ever. Load speed has also become a ranking factor for search results for websites. Here are some screenshots of my website on a shared hosting plan then our Managed WordPress hosting plan. The load time went from 13 seconds to 4 seconds. Real time (what you actually see) is faster since now my website loads from the top down.

Here are a few more comparisons – likely one of these is similar to your website.

The first is my AskDotty website. It has 11 pages, 74 posts, and a few images. It does have audio that is stored at SoundCloud which will slow it down a little.

This website is a typical small business website. It has 5 pages, no blog, and just a few images. This is a site that gets very little updating and does not have any special functionality.

This is a photo heavy website. It would be typical of a website for a photographer, or one that has many galleries with hundreds of images.
