As a small business owner, you have a lot on your plate. The last thing you need to worry about is your site being too slow or being down due to server outages. Here at Stewart Design Agency, we learned the hard way why choosing the right web hosting is important. A few months ago, we noticed users leaving our blog pages very quickly. Our blogs receive a decent amount of traffic and helps guide user to our services. After testing our pages, we experienced lackluster page speed performance. We then embarked on a mission to improve our page load speed across the site. Utilizing various development methods, we made some performance gains, however we still were not satisfied.
After a few weeks of searching we found the ideal web hosting provider for our business. Siteground (siteground.com) specializes in insuring incredibly fast hosting service for PHP based application. Siteground made the process super easy to migrate all our sites to their servers. Once everything was up and running, we are consistently seeing 3.2 seconds for full page load times. The industry average for full page load time is 10 seconds. Currently, we are seeing much improved site analytics on our blog pages. Over the coming months, we are looking forward to pass our great site performance on to our new clients.
