My website is running slow. Can you help?

Yes, definitely? There are many different reasons why your website might be running slow. We will conduct a series of tests to attempt to isolate the problem and then recommend how the issue can be fixed. The issue at times is the WordPress theme. If that is the case, then you might need to get a new design. However, too many plugins are often the culprit. By just uninstalling a couple of plugins, you can often significantly improve the problem.

Another reason why your website might be slow is its hosting environment. Maybe your current host isn’t a good fit for how many visitors are coming to your website or the number of videos or photos you have installed on your site. If this is the case, we will be very happy to get your website copied over to our server and perform some speed tests. That way you will be able to see whether your website speed will improve by moving your site to our server.

Some clients also have unrealistic expectations regarding how fast their website should be loading. You might notice that sites such as Amazon tend to load nearly instantly. That is due to the fact that they have a very big budget and are able to spend lots of money on hosting to ensure that their website loads very fast. However, unless you have Amazon’s budget, your site isn’t going to load that quickly. We will be very happy to take a look at your site and tell you about any things you can do to improve the speed of your site.
