But you can have an Idea of how can you get most of it

What is TTFB? And how to find it in Pingdom Speed Test Result

First 3 link(in this case) is showing TTFB (Time to first byte). TTFB is time taking to load the first byte of the whole web page.

You can as per in this waterfall data first URL is “http://youtube.com/”, it means we enter this URL in our web browser and then it automatically converts into “http://www.youtube.com/”, because this was not naked domain.

Naked Domain is the domain which doesn't consist "www" at the starting of their domain name. For eg. "https://domains.google"

And in the third link “https://www.youtube.com/”, because it uses https not http only. There you can see written 61.4 kB, it means on this domain data of this page start downloading. On that moment when the first byte of this 61.4 kB was started downloading, timing from entering the URL into browser till that moment was TTFB. In this case, TTFB was less than 0.1 second, which is very good.

As you already seen in performance insight that some parameters was have poor score, but YouTube is performing exceptionally well.

That’s why this article is existing guys. Every Insight Score for every website is not equally important. Important is the website speed and performance, and that depends upon a lot of things. Pingdom speed test tool is very helpful for your website optimization to achieve a better website performance.

But sometimes the wrong optimization affect adversely and they got worse performance than earlier.

9 Major Factors, Responsible For Your Website Speed

9 Major Factors, Responsible For Your Website Speed

Website speed or Page loading speed is always a concern for everyone who is online, whether they could be developers, bloggers, designers or business owners. This is not a mystery anymore that page loading speed is one of the most important parameters of website performance and it affects website’s SEO in both ways direct & indirect.

Slow website speed does not only harm you in terms of reputation, even you are losing your deserved revenue.

According to Kissmetrics “Every 1-second delay is caused to lose 1% of your potential buyer or visitor.” Which is huge, really huge.

If your website is not starting to load within 2 seconds of click and if it does not load completely within 4 seconds, then there is 30% chance that visitor will switch to another website.

Why is Website Speed important for Everyone?

Before answer of these questions, you should keep this in mind that there is a lot of things on which website speed depends.

We will decode everything one-by-one. First, we should list out everything which is responsible to affect website or page loading speed.

  • Server Response timing
  • Location of Data Centre
  • No. of requests
  • No. of Images on Page
  • TTFB
  • Plugins or Ad-on

These are some major reason to affect page loading speed. Page loading speed is one of the major factors of On-Page SEO. There are many tools on which you can test your website speed or page loading speed.

Let’s analyze these major responsible factors for website speed:

Server Response Timing

Server response timing is the major reason to affect your website speed. Server response timing is the time which server takes to response for every request for your website’s URL or any page’s URL.

This is also called Latency.

It directly depends on your server type. Like figure for Shared Servers will be maximum and we all know that in terms of page loading speed we want quickest as possible. The difference in VPS (Virtual Private Server) and Dedicated servers could be very minimal or like nothing. It depends on the server configuration and optimization.

Cloud VPS and Dedicated servers are the best in terms of performance but they are very costly. So you can’t go for them until you don’t really need them.

Location of Data Centre

Its most simple thing to understand in this article that if data centre where website’s server hardware physically present is very far from you or visitor then it will take more time to load.

Suppose your data centre is located in North US and someone is trying to visit your website in New Zealand. In this case data have to travel such a long distance, so, it will take time. And your website speed will we little bit slower.

As you can see here the difference in page load speed for the most preferable website on internet www.google.com, from 2 different location. Because you only can choose 1 data center for your website, so this was a huge challenge to reach all over the globe at very very short time. Yes, you heard right, “It was”. Because in present time when every microsecond matters you can’t afford to be 1 sec. behind from your competitor. CDN (Content Distribution Network) service was introduced some years ago to solve this problem, and today approx. every large scale or globally famous websites use this to increase their page loading speed. Every large and Medium scale organization and companies using this service to reach everywhere at blazing fast speed.

You can go through this article to know every basic and deep aspect of CDN and how it works?

You will get the answer of every important question about CDN like:

  • My original Data Centre Location matters if I’m using CDN service?
  • How CDN works?
  • Should I use CDN service?
  • How to calculate the exact Pricing for My used CDN service?

And much more.

No. of request

Now question comes

  • what is no. of request?
  • How requests affect Page Loading speed?
  • What will be best No. of Request for great Website speed?
  • How can I optimize this to increase my website speed or page loading speed?

A request is a query by the browser to the web server for each and every action, file, HTML request and for third party plugins and their actions too.

Less request will help you to keep your page loading speed higher. Like If in your website you are using a Facebook plugin which is showing your likes of your Facebook page on your website, then it has to fetch the data from Facebook so, it will create one more action.

So, there is one more tip you can uninstall unnecessary plugins to keep your website speed up.

No. of Images on Page

No. of Images is very major reason and approx. 90% site are slow down just cause of non-optimize or uncompressed images.

This factor alone can spoil your whole optimization and expenditure on best servers and fastest CDN service.

Undoubtedly Images play an important role to maximize the visual effect and call to action, but it can cost to your website speed.

Because nothing can replace images and infographics. Even according to different reports images increase visitor engagement about 30-40 %.

But sometimes you uploaded large size images, willingly or unwillingly. And Because Images are also counted as file requests, so it increases page loading speed. Sometimes it hampers website speed very badly.

So, what we should do? There is the very easy solution for this major problem.

Optimize and compress images before uploading to the websites.

If you’re on WordPress then, many third party plugins will make your work easier. Many of them are premium and some are free. I recommend to go with premium plugins, some of them really work great.

The importance of Image optimization and recommend Plugins for image optimization and compression in WordPress.

TTFB (Time to first byte)

TTFB is also a kind of parameter of website speed measurement. According to Wikipedia, TTFB means

Time To First Byte (TTFB) is a measurement used as an indication of the responsiveness of a web server or other network resource. TTFB measures the duration from the user or client making an HTTP request to the first byte of the page being received by the client’s browser.”

Process and Time Taken under the Red boxes are TTFB.
Yes, in simple words, suppose your page size is 863 kb, you hit your URL into the browser and wait for load the page. Loading your page means browser have to download total 863 kb from the web server, that’s called Page Loading time. But in between, there is a lot of processes. Like if you simply hit the www.xyz.com then the browser will redirect to the web server and first determine this URL is http:// or https://, then another request will pass by web server if website URL is naked (without www). Then browser will start downloading the page’s content. Timing between hit the URL and the first byte is downloading from your webserver is called TTFB (Time to First Byte).

Simple to understand by its name alone. Right?

How can you find your website’s TTFB?

Go to tools.pingdom.com and enter your website’s URL for speed test. Then you’ll get these data….

When you’ll scroll a little bit then you’ll find the detailed time report request-by-request.

Time taken by the first two process is you TTFB.

Plugins or Ad-ons

Sometimes people use so much of plugins for their WordPress website which affects their Page loading speed.

Plugins in WordPress make many tasks easy and faster for us. Some plugins help us to convert our website into masterpiece dramatically.

These Plugins or add-on also consider as a different request for web browser by webserver.

Only go through the article, you’ll know all the Pros and Cons of Managed WordPress Hosting.

Everyone Knows, ‘What is WordPress?’

As we all know ‘WordPress’ is the CMS which is used by millions of websites. Nowadays 29% of the total domain using WordPress as CMS.

This is huge, really huge.

It means if you’re on a website which is not a government website or not of any company then it means there is 60% chance to be WordPress as CMS of that website. Not government website but many companies too using WordPress or their websites.

Other CMS means the websites which are not created on these platforms.     For a full list of CMS and Platforms click Here.
This trend Clearly Shows how rapidly WordPress grabbing the other CMS Market Percentage.
This data is enough to tell WordPress is so popular and its community is much bigger than you think.

There is more CMS or Platforms like Joomla, Magento and much more but WordPress is not only biggest platform even its fastest growing too.

When millions of websites will use WordPress then it was pretty sure that it will make its own kind of technology. Managed WordPress Hosting is one of them.

In Managed WordPress hosting mainly servers are configured perfectly for WordPress, but here at Media Propel we make some more changes in the server to set that more precisely for you.

First, know What Servers Do?

Hosting is the computer of your website when someone enters your website’s URL into his browser, then request will directly fetch to your server and dig for information on that URL. It took some time but in microseconds.

But imagine if someone tries to visit your website and it took 25 seconds to load, do you think visitor will wait till then. I don’t think, nowadays thousands of options available on the internet then why would they wait for that long duration.

How Managed WordPress Hosting helps to fix this issue

Your website should load with the blink of an eye. Here Managed WordPress hosting comes into the screen.

Your managed WordPress hosting provider provides you much powerful server than usual for WordPress and it can handle your traffic very easily. Websites which are hosted on MediaPropel.com normally reply for billions of request successfully every month. We also make necessary changes on their servers and websites if necessary to make those websites blazing fast.

Required improvement for Your Server is not ending here

Now imagine 10K people simultaneously try to visit your website obviously from different-different location, your server will reply each request but not at the same speed like it was working before. It will affect your website loading speed. Because technically, server request will complete earlier of near from data centre. The request which comes from a far distance from the data centre will take more time to complete.

CDN

CDN service comes here into the scene, but you’ll not need this service until your site very heavily crowded or your website data is so huge. Generally International marketplace use this service to reach everywhere at very short time.

Some website has very limited target customers or area, so they choose their data centre carefully. Than they didn’t need to opt for CDN service. Because, for example Flipkart.com is very famous e-commerce website in India. They know their customers and 99% visitors will from India, then why they’ll opt CDN for US Data centre? Dive in Detail of CDN with this article.

So, now you know how your website speed got affect? and how can you get rid of them? How can you reach worldwide at blazing fast speed?

It was all about website speed. But managed WordPress hosting is not only about website speed, there is much more.

Bandwidth

Bandwidth is defined as the amount of data that can be transmitted in a fixed amount of time.

If you’re not familiar with term ‘Bandwidth’ then be continue, otherwise, you can jump into next paragraph. Suppose any of your pages is 200 kb in size, and if 5 visitor visit that page. It means server transmit 1000 kb or can say 1 Mb data. If your bandwidth is 500GB then it means your all page views by every visitor should not be more than 500GB.

Don’t worry about Bandwidth, if your hosting partner is MediaPropel.com, because approx. in every plan, we offer unlimited bandwidth. It means you should not worry about page views or no. of visitors (Some plans are based on visitors). Read this article If you want to know more about ‘Bandwidth’.

Let’s concise it

So, now you have an answer what is Managed WordPress Hosting? Let’s concise it:

In managed WordPress Hosting all prerequisite tools and applications installed.

All requirement to install and launch the application (WordPress in this case) already fulfilled or done by hosting provider.
