We should look at the techniques which are mostly easier to understand and can be well implemented by layman webmaster and these techniques should also be important for geeks also to check out their speed of website.

Very first step to access how speedier is your website is to reach out to different online resources such as GTMETRIX. Google PageSpeed insights and Yahoo Yslow is prominent among the mass of instruments to check the speed of website. One Google search on it can reach you to mass number of web pages but it is important always to think that these three tools are the first you should be using to measure the speed of website.

Analyse your site speed in these three online tools and then apply these recommendations to make your website run faster. GTMETRIX does provide huge ambient of informations such as page speed score, Yslow score. Page load time, page size and number of requests to server the page provides while loading. Yslow is available in the form of add on to reputed web browsers except of Internet Explorer and you can use this as per your wish to understand and find out what makes your website slower.

Most of these three elements including images within websites are optimised when we Gzip website.

Another interesting online website to measure how your website performs during peak hours by measuring load impacts of website. It is one of the most dynamic tools to understand that how your web host is working as well as how your website performs during peak hours. It tests when your website is being counted upon from 25 person to thousands of persons and during those time how well your website performs. It is one of more important online tool to be used by web masters understand their website better and how they perform in these extreme peak circumstances where there should be flocking to more and more visitors into the sites.

It performs tests on active users and the number of bandwidth usages per kilobyte per seconds and the active TP connections should be seen while the test is under way. Amount of data received and the number of requests done to yours website as well as the request rate per seconds and during all these stress test how is yours website is performing is the single most important factors and all these does indicate how good or bad yours web host is.

Even if yours website traffic is in lower side but still one good back link to any of higher page ranking website could bring about more and more number of visitors to yours site and it is important always to reconsider and check about such stress level test of yours website otherwise in the performance wise yours website could be down even during high visitor times.

Choose a good web host and check everything before being out for a good web host.

Always opt for server side back up solutions which back ups wordpress as well as its related attached database and it can provide automated back up solutions and does provide huge reliefs in the case of catastrophe occurring to your site. Codeguard makes server side back ups periodically and creates one of time line of back ups for you and ultimately it does provide one of the most outstanding form of restoration of website if at all due to external or internal reasons your site comes down.

In addition to these automated back ups from time to time changes to your website is being provided to the registered emails and it does provide indications if those changes are done by you or done by hackers. Periodically, while saving time line of changes in website, server side backup solutions codeguard while backing up sends details of new alternations of your website. Most of web hosting do provide either default content delivery network or web accelerator like varnish. Both speeds up website to a considerable extent. Both work in a different manner.

Varnish speeds up your website by three to five times while caching static and dynamic contents. Images, CSS, customisations, plain HTML and others can be included inside static and dynamic contents. Generally, cache accelerator varnish should not work with secure websites starting with https. Another option to super secure your website is to install server side firewall which acts in completely reverse engineering manners, to complete recheck website before it allows to open in user’s browsers.

It is important to choose one of the best theme or create your theme from the free theme provided to you by WordPress and make it more customised so as to be the most vivid and most appearances friendly. There has been plenty of internet resources and one good internet search can land you to understand of how to make the child theme and then how to customise those theme in order to have a great looking theme at yours disposal. It is important to create the theme all by yourself by taking a simple default plain theme of wordpress and then slowly move forward in editing and adding other customisations to it.

A successful webmaster should always opt for not installing any of plugins including default wordpress plugins when the wordpress is for the first time installed on server. It is also wise not to install any of wordpress plugins including Akismet in order to increase the speed of website to maximum levels. Akismet is one of the heavier website and it does contact its server from time to time in order to clear the comment and it does work in everytime a comment appears and that should take some chunks of web server loading times. I should be writing detailed article about how to stop spam comments from the reconfiguration settings of word press back end as word press has its own set up modules and we just have to use those modules in prime term to stop the initiation of spams into websites.

Leverage browser caching is another method which needs to be deeply looked into and in most of wordpress sites this should be enabled in order to considerable increase of the page in order to provide faster network access and faster loading times. It can be done through the front end by accessing .htaccess file. Most of cPanel have these not shown and it is important to enable hidden files from the settings and then you should be seeing this film. First book that file and then there are some codes which can be found on the internet and then add that code, and if you do not find that code then I should be in the near future writing about it in great detail.
