Five Jars follows coding standards and applies best practices to increase the website's speed, scalability, and stability. We complement our development process through an extensive testing phase with a solution only being delivered if it passes our high standards of performance requirements.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PERFORMANCE
Performance is vital to your success in two specific ways. First, an outstanding performance means that users can access your website quickly, and all your content loads without interruption. After all, users tend to skip websites that need more than 4 seconds to load. Second, search engines tend to penalize slow websites which ultimately means that your ranking will be negatively impacted. Therefore, website performance is a crucial part of Five Jars performance process and the level of speed will be continually observed and tested. Our maintenance schedule includes rigorous testing of the overall performance on a regular basis to ensure the highest possible impact.
CONTINUOUS MAINTENANCE FOR IMPROVED RESULTS
The key challenge about performance improvement is that every initiative we take will have an immediate impact component as well as a long-term component. As with every web dev improvement, maintenance, and continuous work are crucial to uphold the gained momentum and retain the competitive advantage. Therefore, Five Jars offers automated and pre-scheduled speed, stability, and scalability audits which highlight optimization potential and required steps.
WHAT PERFORMANCE DEPENDS ON
Website page-load performance depends on many things and can be impacted from the server configuration up to the 3rd party functionalities that are integrated within your web environment. There are many areas for improvement, but here at Five Jars we adhere to the following practices when it comes to performance improvements:
- Well-performing hosting provider
- Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN)
- Optimize the size of images (use image styles from Drupal)
- Reduce the number of 3rd party plugins
- Website and Server Caching
- Gzip Compression
- Reduce redirects
