I’m very happy to announce that I’ve gotten a new server that is considerably faster than my old one. This is of benefit to me as well as my clients who host their sites with me – statistics show that people are more likely to stay on a site longer if the site performs well. That extra 3 or 4 seconds spent waiting translates into frustration and loss of interest. And we definitely do not want our customers to lose interest in our products or businesses!
People are impatient these days. They want things now or sooner! No matter how great of a site design you have, a slow response from your web host is sure to turn people off from pursuing a relationship with your company.
Here is a great website performance tester you can use to see how well your site performs. Anything over about two seconds is going to start hurting your site traffic, and therefore the sales you generate from your site.
If you’d like to get the fastest response times possible on your site, let me know. I can have your site moved over to my server within 24 hours, regardless of who designed it.
