11. How to speed up your site?

There’s a lot on information on how to make your site work faster on the Internet. We are going to list certain general recommendations below, as well as recommendations on Nesos theme customization.

  1. It’s important to choose a nice hosting for your site. Cheap hosting usually isn’t the fastest one.WordPress, WooCommerce and our theme need resources. A very cheap host most likely won’t have them, and Nesos experience, as well as our support duty, will turn into a nightmare. We usually recommend WordPress hosting plans from MediaTemple to be used with our themes.
  2. You can use caching plugins. We recommend acquiring and activating one of such plugins after your site’s development is over. Most important ones are:W3 Total Cache
    WP Super Cache
  3. You can use CDN. What CDN does is it creates copies of your site’s static content (images, CSS and javascript files) on different servers around the world. When a visitor comes to your site, he or she gets these static files from the nearest server. So, let’s say, North American visitors get your site’s files from Canada, and European visitors get them from Norway. This increases your site’s loading speed dramatically. Here are some of the popular CDN service providers:https://www.maxcdn.com/
  4. You can optimize your images. Images usually are the “heaviest” part of your website and take the most time to load. Reduce your images’ initial sizes online or offline before uploading them to your site.
