You only have seconds to catch attention. Don't waste it with a blank screen.
I've worked with Cloudways servers for a while now, and I know how to get the most out of them. Pay less but get more power under the hood with a well configured Cloudways server.
Site Load Times
One of the most important and, unfortunately, overlooked numbers in web design. People don't like waiting, and they know they have options online. Don't let your first and last impression be a blank screen.
Part of getting that load time down is optimizing your images. This can cut your page size, and thus your page load, in half. I usually see between a 80%-90% decrease in size when images are optimized, with little to no difference in quality.
Content Delivery Network
Content delivery networks (CDNs) are the backbone of the internet. They take your site and distribute it to servers all across the world. This way users don't have to wait for servers on the other side of the world to send them data. Even if you only serve people in one area, this will help lower strain on your server and improve load times overall.
