How can I Speed up my eCommerce Website?

Magento is an eCommerce solution, page speed will be a part of user experience, how the user feels about our website, and how the products and contents are appearing seamlessly in the website, so this is a great factor concerning the user when a product takes a long time to load in the website that will also affect the user to quit our website and go with other websites or vendors, so this is very critical and a competition things between the other vendors in the recent web world. Now we can check what are optimization techniques that we can use in Magento for improving the speed.

How we can handle this using Magento

  •  Enable Cache

Magento has inbuilt caching mechanism for improving the page speed of eCommerce websites, We can enable this feature for caching the products as static contents, so this static contents will be displayed each time when the website loads, this is one of the methods of doing the page speed improvements.

Magento developers provide inbuilt third party cache plugins integrations like varnish.so when we use varnish the page speed will improve drastically. Most of the vendors opting varnish cache integrated with Magento.

Why because of the speed of the website. https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/config-guide/varnish/config-varnish.html 

  • Redis cache is another method of caching

Another one is the Content Delivery Networks (CDN), we can use CDN for loading the internal CSS, Javascript, Jquery, Bootstrap files, Images, etc Instead of keeping it in the same server. Server speed is one of the factors that affect the page load speed. High configuration servers load time is very low compared to the poorly configured servers.

Use Minification, minify your javascript or CSS to improve the page speed of the website, minification means merging the Javascript files and merging CSS files that also can improve the loading time

Enable Gzip compression:- this can be enabled through htaccess file, you can add some code for enabling the Gzip compression

Image optimization:- Normally most of the websites use high-quality images to show the products, that is good, but when we consider the page speed we can think about the optimization of images also. We can reduce the size of the image without losing the quality of the image, using the image optimization techniques. 

  • Lazy loading

This is another type of Image optimization technique, we can use lazy loading techniques for rendering the images in the right time when the customer scrolls this lazy load will improve the page speed.

These are some of the techniques that can improve the page speed of our website.
