A quick follow up on last week’s Godaddy DNS server incident: according to an article in the New York Times, Godaddy claims the outage occured due to an internal network error (and not a hack or attack). Godaddy hosts five million websites and manages 53 million domain names.
And in a follow-up to the previous week’s Site Load Speed Test article, one company took us up on helping them speed up their site.
96% Website Speed Increase: 60 seconds –> 2.17 seconds.
Before, the site TVPartsOutlet.com took more than 60 seconds to load. (The test times out after 60 seconds, and the test shows that not all of the content of the home page was loaded.)
We helped move TV Parts Outlet to a new hosting account on Nexcess – a web hosting provider based in Michigan.
The results speak for themself:
A couple of notes to help you understand how what this report means.
Slow Hosting Company.
Faster Hosting Company.
The second report was run one day later on Thursday, Sep 13, 2012 from the same data center. There were 73 total requests — one more than the slower server (we assume that one request didn’t load). Simply moving over to a new, faster and more reliable hosting company allowed the site to load in 2.17 seconds. The total page size was 923.4 kb – almost double the amount of content that was downloaded from the slower server.
Yes, this is an extreme example — it’s not often we see a 96% increase in speed from simply moving a site from one hosting company to the next. (We didn’t do anything else to the overall site.)
Let us know if you`d like us to test out your site, or help install page caching to create quicker page load times.
