In today's world of instant results, customers are often not prepared to wait for your website to load. Frequently a website will be missing out on vital customers purely because the pages do not display in a quick enough timeframe. Almost all of us at some point have pressed the webmasters most feared button - the BACK button, because a page has not shown, or because images are taking too long to display.
There is also another aspect to the speed of a site being slow; if the page loads slowly, this is a sure fire sign that the web server is having to work extremely hard. Whether it is because it is having to perform too many processes, or because it is having to serve up very large files, either of these is likely to cost you money - either in bandwidth excess charges, or in downtime when your server eventually decides it needs a break!
The default download of CRELoaded is relatively slow and labour intensive on your server, and the templating engine can cause serious delays in pages displaying. If your site has been modified, this problem becomes exacerbated and can result in serious loss of business, reputation and visitors.. If your site has large images, or has a number of contributions already installed, this service becomes an absolute necessity.
I would like someone to optimize my Creloaded Pro 6.2 update 8.1. As it is and with reading the above you can see some of the problems identified in the Creloaded total design.
Think about the scope of the project and if you have the skills to optimize the site for faster performance to avoid slow loading pages and a faster end user experience.
I will give you FTP access so you can either download the whole site or work on files individually.
If you need to know PHP, apache, linux or mysql versions let me know before you contact me.
Any question I am here and ready to answer.
