Question

site works badly (advise hosting)

Posted December 10, 2019 613 views

Hi there!
I have a website, after filling it began to slow down a lot, the long response of the server and the database. I’m afraid it’ll affect the ranking. Hosting will not call, that would not be taken for advertising.
Please, recommend a fast hosting for a heavy site for a reasonable price, with large images and complex functionality. The site has a complex slider, you can check here: https://www.coffee-statistics.com/
Thanks!

I know that DigitalOcean has one of the fastest servers. Also you could try the AWS or Liquid Web

Hello, @riveragwen1984

I can see that your site is running WordPress and I can assure you that the load time can be reduced by optimizing the droplet and the site itself.

There are a lot of things you can do in order to speed up your WP site. Most of them are related with the website configuration itself - reduce the number of active plugins you have, reduce the website’s size (front page and etc), reduce the number of heavy database queries and external/3rd party requests for css/js and any other content as well.

Use adaptive images. According to the HTTP Archive, 61 percent of a website’s page weight on a desktop computer is images. Start by using tools such as Picturefill or Adaptive Images on your website to save bandwidth and improve page speed for your site. Another option is to adopt new image formats like WebP and JPeg XR—this can help reduce image weight by twenty to fifty percent without sacrificing image quality.

Cache, cache, cache. Browser caching stores cache versions of static resources, a process that quickens page speed tremendously and reduces server lag. When a user visits a page on your website, the cached version usually displays unless it has changed since it was last cached. This means the browser saves a lot of requests to your server and improves load speed for your site.

Evaluate your plugins. Plugins can bring new functionality and features to your website, but the more plugins your website has, the longer it takes to load. Poor or outdated plugins can slow down website performance dramatically, which could be fixed by removing plugins that duplicate functionality, are out of date or are no longer used.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Regards,
Alex
