Why Is Your Website Loading Slowly?

slow website loading

Why is your website loading slowly? That’s a question every website owner wants to know the answer for if their web site takes too long to load. They usually ask their web hosting providers or their web developers for help. Is the server slow or there is something wrong within the code of the website which is causing the slowness? That’s a question which is hard to answer if you don’t have enough experience dealing with small web sites and troubleshooting the reasons for a slow website. Your web designer and your web hosting company or systems administrator are the ones who can help you find out the exact cause and then apply steps to optimize the web site or upgrade your server.

By all means, your website should take no more than 3 seconds to load else you are losing visitors and eventually sales. Bounce rate increases up to 32% when your web site loads from 1 to 3 seconds. The math says you lose 30% of the money you spend for ads if your web site takes more than 3 seconds to load.

This article will show you the reasons for slow sites in most of the times. I will try to write it as simple as possible so more people can understand it and know what they have to do next to transform their web site and make it load as fast as possible.

Reseller hosting became popular about 15 years ago. At that time there was no cloud server hosting nor VPS hosting. You could choose between a reseller account or a dedicated server. The cost difference between the two is huge. Then VPS hosting became popular and people started ordering virtual servers instead of dedicated since a VPS provides the same functionality but with less systems resources.

OnApp Has Been A Nightmare. OnApp Review.

onapp bad support

This is the first time we use our blog to post our experience with one of our ex-vendors that we used to outsource cloud hosting management services. Specifically, this article is about our bad experience with OnApp. I will include as much details as possible in order to be as helpful as possible to any future companies considering to use their services. I want to stress out that I would not write this long OnApp review but the way they treated us made me do it because in todays world such behavior must result in lost customers and lost future clients. Everyone should be aware what to expect by becoming a customer of OnApp. I will explain about the most serious issues because in 4 years we had to open more than 240 technical support tickets due to problems with their software which makes it 5 tickets per month and 1.25 tickets per week. In many of the cases their support staff didn’t know what they were doing and they even caused full data loss for 2 servers. Good that we had backups to restore them.
