Super Tips to Speed Up Website Loading


I will give you some tips Speed Up Website Loading

1. Using Compression (gzip)

When there is someone visits our website, then web hosting server will create an HTML file which is then sent to the visitor’s browser. But when we activate compression feature, then the file sent is no longer in an HTML form, but rather in the form of file compression (gzip). HTML file so that we can be 50% – 80% smaller than its original size. Which in turn will speed up load our blog.

The majority of web hosts have this compression feature enabled. But if not, you can ask for directions from your web host or by using a WordPress plugin Gzip Compression (with notes, your web host supports gzip). To test whether your website is sent in compressed form or not, please check the whatsmyip.

2. Clean File PHP, CSS, and JavaScript Themes

In the php files wordpress theme, usually there are the comments syntax, tabs, and spaces (whitespace) that serves as a guide to assist or facilitate us in editing the theme. But all of that actually will only burden the loading site. So I suggest, if you are satisfied edit the look of the theme, then delete all comment syntax, tabs and spaces that exist.

Ways that can be used to remove the existing two, namely:

1. Automated.
You simply install wordpress plugins like WP-Cache Total Minify or W3 then automatically file your wordpress will be cleaned. Few advantages with using this plugin is that they also can put together some CSS and JavaScript files to reduce HTTP Requests.

2. Manual.
This is the way I use, because my principle if I could do it myself, why must use plugin? The trick with copy syntax PHP files wordpress themes (especially the header.php, index.php, home.php, footer.php, single.php, page.php, and search.php), then cleaned by using the services of Digital Coding. And cleaning results on the copy and paste back into the theme files. In this way my HTML file which was originally 39 KB is now a 18.5 KB (before compressed again with gzip).

Then to clean up the CSS, I use the services of YUI Compressor. As for the shrink and incorporate some JavaScript into one file, I use the services of UglifyJS.

NB: It is advisable to conduct this experiment on your own computer by using WAMPP, XAMPP, MAMP etc.. Do the live site.

3. Eliminate Unnecessary Plugin

Indeed, with many plugins with an interesting feature on the internet will make us tempted to put it on the website. But the fundamental question we must ask ourselves before installing the plugin is, do we really need one?

When we install the plugin, in fact we also add the javascript and CSS default plugin.Additional javascript and CSS means will increase the load time of our blog. So my advice, save the plugins that are useful and the rest, delete.

4. Move Javascript into the footer.php

Usually javascript is between syntax <head> </ head>. The problem with javacsript in <head> </ head> is, when the javascript it takes a long time to load, then your page will not appear. Sometimes need to refresh many times can load the entire blog page.

The solution, move the javascript to the footer.php file, just above the syntax </ body>.Making the content of your blog page will appear first before loading the javascript.

To move the javascript I use the plugin JavaScript To Footer. This plugin will remove all the javascript, including built-plugins javascript into the footer.

5. Plugin Cache

When someone opens the page of our website, then the server will process the files wordpress to be an HTML file and then sent to the visitor’s browser. And in the process, the plugin cache will save the HTML file that has been processed by the server, so that when there are other people who visit the same page, then that will be sent to the visitor’s computer is an HTML file that is in the cache. Server does not need to perform the process of creating the HTML back. In short, the less workload the server, the less time it takes to load our website.

From some plugin name cache, which is often used by bloggers is W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache.

6. Optimizing Images

A website without a picture like vegetables without salt. However, the use of images without the proper settings will take effect on the slow loading website. Therefore, optimization of the image is very important.

There is a wordpress plugin called smushit that easier for you to optimize the image.Reviews more details can be found in Saving Hosting By Compressing Images.

7. Using a CDN (Content Delivery Network)

CDN is a system for sending static content to a network file server that is spread over different geographical locations around the world.

When a website is linked to a CDN, then the static content files requested by visitors of my blog will be sent from the server closest to him. For example a web server we host in America, and our website is opened by visitors from Indonesia. Then the static content files that are sent do not originate from a web server hosted in the U.S., but from the nearest server that is connected to the CDN, for example from Singapore. Since the server static content closer, then the automatic loading time of our website will also increase drastically.

Some CDN providers for free that you can use, among others CoralCDN, Cloudflare, or Speedymirror. As for the blog majuterus, CDN that I use is GoogleAppEngine.

8. Parallel Download With Sub Domain

Do you ever use Internet Download Manager? If you have never tried to please. Internet Download Manager is a Windows program that serves to accelerate the process of downloading files from the internet. In accelerating the process of downloading, Internet Download Manager using parallel downloads that allows downloading files from multiple domains pieces. So the download becomes much faster than downloading from one domain only.

What about our website? Our website will also be able to load faster if we use parallel download. So our blog content is not downloaded from one domain only, but from several other domains. But I do not recommend you to buy a new domain. Simply create a sub domain (can be also coupled with the CDN), then we can maximize parallel downloads.

For reference, please see how to create a CDN with a subdomain.

9. Reduce Number of Posts In Homepage

After optimization of the above efforts, we will obtain significant results. But there’s one more thing that can make website loading faster again, namely by reducing the number of posts displayed on the homepage. Should the number of posts on the homepage just 4 only (depending on the type of your website theme).

10. Optimizing the Database Table

Having satisfied our fiddling with wordpress. The final step, the optimization of your database. To optimize the database, you have to login to your cPanel> select myphpAdmin. Select all the existing table and select Table Optimize menu
