Website  Performance Tuning

Many websites need simple diagnostics & analysis in order to tune them for optimum reliability and  performance. Remember the target should be 2-3 second response time or less. Performance tuning measurements  can often  be done using remote connections for which there is a $10/hour reduction from the normal $40/hour fee.  In 1/2 hour, our battery of tests will tell whether your website is well prepared, delivering the optimum 2-3 second average response time, or where performance improvements should be made.

For WordPress, a website’s improvements often involves installing and using some well designed plugins to correct response problems. However, more involved tuning can require widespread image/video compression or, in the  worst case, switching hosting providers. These  latter interventions can take between 3 to 8 hours of time. However, for most WordPress plugin fixes, a typical solution time is less than 1 added  hour. And typical performance improvement should 15-40% faster response time.

For HTML/PHP/JavaScript websites,  performance tuning may involve either  add-on extensions or HTML and PHP coding.  Typically, the changes and testing can take 3-8 hours as the coding is more complex. Also , image/video compression work or switching hosting providers may be necessary .  Our mission in the case of performance issues on HTML/PHP/JavaScript is acting a legitimate agent of change. This  may require calling in 3rd party shops.

As in the case of WordPress response time tuning, you should expect 15-40% better performance. If the results are less than 15% better performance,  our total fees are reduced by half.
