Supercharge Your E-Commerce Website
Experience lightning-fast page load times and exceptional user experience. Learn how we go above and beyond to provide you with unmatched speed and customer satisfaction.
Unmatched Speed and Performance
Our solutions guarantee sub-second page load times, setting a new standard for the industry. By optimizing hardware resources and employing cutting-edge technologies, we can reduce hardware costs by up to 85% while scaling up to ten times the user requests per hour. Our systems automatically recover from overload events, such as internet slowdowns and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, ensuring uninterrupted user experience. Even users far from the server and on old mobile devices experience high performance.
Optimizing Performance at Every Level
Achieving exceptional performance requires a comprehensive approach. Our expert team considers every aspect of your website's design to maximize speed and efficiency. From load performance tests on a fully loaded system to optimizing your Content Management System (CMS) for efficient code generation, we leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of unmatched performance.
URL Load Speed
The industry average latency to receive the page-level URL is 0.7 seconds, as shown in the following chart. The page load times average three times longer than the URL. E-Commerce websites are the slowest group of sites because they have more functionality than others.
Enhanced DNS Response Times
DNS response times play a crucial role in overall page load speed. We minimize latency and ensure rapid responses by leveraging the fastest DNS service providers and optimizing configuration variables. We know which are consistently the fastest because we test hundreds of thousands of websites.
The following chart shows there are massive differences in latency between providers. The data is the response time for the primary DNS server. It most closely resembles the user experience for the first connection to the website in a day. DNS configuration variables like the TTL (Time to Live) can also impact response times.
There are two types of tests for page load times. One is on an unloaded system, and the other is at full load. While there are tunable parameters that improve the website, essential decisions get embedded into the design way before testing, and unwinding the decisions leading to the result gets complex and very expensive. The best time to plan for performance is when deciding what platform to use and how to manage website deployments. The best practice is to seek performance guarantees upfront.
Content Management System
The CMS (Content Management System) determines how the website generates code. Most solutions generate slow code that consumes orders of magnitude more hardware resources than necessary. A wasteful solution spawns an operating system process, makes a dozen database queries, and parses a dozen files on the server each time a user downloads a web page. Over the network, they generate three times as many URLs per page and five times the network payload. Then the web browser manages thousands of objects within the page and stalls while resolving dependencies. Efficient designs avoid that overhead.
A cache allows the web browser to use content stored closer to the web browser than the server. The best option is the disk on the device running the web browser. A second popular option is a CDN (Content Delivery Network), such as CloudFlare, Fastly, and Akamai. The page design and website configuration must support the cache to work correctly.
Efficient Data Compression
Compressing data during transmission significantly reduces page load times, especially as the distance between the web browser and server increases. Compressing data on the server and decompressing on the browser is far more efficient than sending uncompressed data over the network. Our expertise in compression configuration makes the websites faster because it has less work to complete. We know which files to compress, how to minimize file content, and what algorithms to use.
Distance Between Web Servers and Browsers
The physical distance between web servers and browsers directly impacts download speeds because network latency matters far more than bandwidth. The network laWe strategically position web servers and, if necessary, deploy stand-alone servers in multiple geographic regions to minimize latency and enhance network performance. It improves page load speeds, boosts local SEO, and makes the connection more reliable.
The chart below shows the distance between web servers for 10,000 companies with head offices in Toronto, Canada. The vast majority only service the local community, so page load speeds improve when the webserver is within 500 km of the head office. However, seven percent have transoceanic connections, and another 5% are transcontinental.
The number of parallel links between the internet backbone and the hosting provider's data center impacts website performance. Highly connected facilities have more direct and faster network routes. They also have more options when dealing with internet overloading, maintenance, and denial of service attacks.
The following chart shows the number of BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) connections immediately downstream from websites. It is a proxy to the network parallelism of the data center. It reveals the enormous variation that exists between providers. Our research allows us to select providers with the most reliable networks.
Most websites share the server with thousands of others, and the merchant has zero insight into the hardware resources consumed by the other websites and how it changes over time. The hosting provider may claim high performance, but most push clients to a far more expensive service to get better performance or manage any loading.
We put websites on dedicated server hardware with guaranteed hardware capacity. That makes testing system performance under load meaningful. So we guarantee the scalability and page load times of your website. The solution can scale from tiny to massive user loads.
Our high-performance hosting relies on top-of-the-line server hardware and optimized configuration management. We ensure low latency and high bandwidth network cards, CPUs equipped with the AES and SHA instruction sets to accelerate HTTPS connections, and meticulously tuned software configurations. By leveraging the power of the latest technologies, we deliver unparalleled speed, stability, and reliability.
