Website Performance

Webmasters, web designers and web developers tend to build websites that can perform at great speed. We have been hearing a lot lately that factors Google consider in giving page rank to websites also include the website page speed. That is the speed a website responds and opens its pages to users. The ability of a website to serve data quickly to user. Greater speed, good page rank and happy visitors. Now the factors that determine the page speed or website speed not only include the design elements and website structure but it also include your web hosting provider efficiency. That is your server’s strength. Buy a web hosting and you will know that this is a whole new game you should understand to maintain your online presence. There are shared servers, virtual private servers and private servers. RAM issues, memory issues, connections and CPU cycles issues and lot more… We are not going to recommend you another great web hosting provider. But we are going to recommend you a method that can increase your website/web page speed almost double. And you do not have to change the web host either.
