    Here are a few tips.

    First of all, run your website through a speed test like Google PageSpeed Insights (I can't post links!)

    This will give you a few pointers.

    Here's what I've done to make my website much faster:

    1. Host every CSS, JS and images files on a domain (or subdomain) different from your website's domain. This will increase the number of parallel downloads by web browsers. So for instance, if you have your website at www[.]yourwebsite[.]com, then you could host all the media files on cdn[.]yourwebsite[.]com. Personally, I use Amazon Cloudfront to distribute media files so I end up with a hostname on the cloudfront[.]net domain.

    2. Use a Content Delivery Network for your HTML content. This will take the load off your web server as your web pages will be cached by the CDN servers. I use the Sucuri CDN and I'm pretty pleased so far. It's got a firewall and DDoS protection too. Some are doing fine with Cloudflare but I never got amazing results.

    3. Compress every images as much as you can (without sacrificing quality). If you are using WordPress, I know there are some plugins that can do this. If you're comfortable with Linux, there are ways to optimize multiple images at once. Here's a good tutorial on optimizing multiple JPEG images from the command line.

    4. Combine and minify CSS and JS files to reduce the number of requests. I use a Linux shell script that combines every CSS files together and every JS files together. Then I use YUI Compressor to minify them.

    5. Enable GZIP compression. Assuming you are using an Apache web server, create a file named ".htaccess" at the root of your website and insert this content:

    Select All
    <IfModule mod_deflate.c> SetOutputFilter DEFLATE <IfModule mod_setenvif.c> # Netscape 4.x has some problems... BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html # Netscape 4.06-4.08 have some more problems BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip # MSIE masquerades as Netscape, but it is fine # BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html # NOTE: Due to a bug in mod_setenvif up to Apache 2.0.48 # the above regex won't work. You can use the following # workaround to get the desired effect: BrowserMatch \bMSI[E] !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html # Don't compress images # SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI .(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary </IfModule> <IfModule mod_headers.c> # Make sure proxies don't deliver the wrong content Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary </IfModule> AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/javascript AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/x-icon AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/png AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/jpeg AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/gif AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/svg+xml AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-truetype AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-ttf AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-otf AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-opentype AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/vnd.ms-fontobject AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/ttf AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/otf AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/eot AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/woff AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/truetype AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/opentype </IfModule>
    6. Move the calls to Javascript files at the bottom of the HTML code. This will allow the web browsers to render your website faster.

    7. Reduce the number of DNS lookups by limiting the number of requests made to external sources. Use the "dns prefetch" tags in your HTML header (before </head>) for each host that your website requests resources from:

    Select All
    <link rel="dns-prefetch" href="//hostname" />
    8. I use Fontawesome (free version) for icons instead of images. It loads up much faster.

    Phew... well I think that is all. I think.
