Speed Up WordPress by Changing Web Hosts

We have been transitioning WordPress websites off of slower web hosts for a while now, and even just making that one change can make a huge difference. Our hosting platform includes faster response times, better caching and overall can increase the page loading time of your site.

Here are some stats from Pingdom tests on some recent transitions we have done.

Site 1: Before
Score: 85
Load Time: 3.12s
Page Size: 5.3MB
Requests: 57
Test Location: San Jose
Site 1: After
Score: 85

Page Size: 5.3MB

Site 2: Before

Site 2: After

With all three examples, the most important metric changes: site loading time.

You can seee that all of these sites ended up loading in less than a second after moving from three different value hosting platforms to our high performance Hyperion WordPress platform. If your WordPress site is loading slowly, it might not be the theme or plugins that you need to optimize, but instead finding a better hosting platform.

No matter what you are trying to sell with your website, you should want it to load as fast as possible. For more information, check out our post entitled, 100ms of Latency Cost This Company 1% In Sales.
