Why Is Your Website Loading Slowly?

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.

How To Optimize My Web Site?

How To Optimize My Web Site?

Have you ever received a notification from your hosting provider that your web site is using too much CPU resources? From one side that is a good and a normal thing as it means your web site is getting more visitors and becomes more popular. From another side you have to pay more money for web hosting because your web site requires more CPU resources to operate and serve all visitors. Both are normal and both are part of the growing process of a web site. If you want to have thousands of visitors on daily basis don’t expect to be able to use a cheap web hosting plan. You will most likely need to switch to cloud server hosting or at least a higher shared hosting plan which allows more CPU resources. Upgrading is the easiest to do but it costs more money. There is one more step you can take before upgrading. You can optimize your web site and decrease the CPU resources it uses when a visitor comes to it. The optimization process includes many steps which may be hard to do if you have never done it before. You may need to get with your web designer to perform them for you although those steps must have been done before your web site has been published.
