Website speed matters: Study finds 1 second delay in website load time means a 7% reduction in conversions
A recent study by Akamai claims that if your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, you could be losing nearly half of your visitors. Find out how your website rates.
A one-second delay in page load times yields:
- 11% fewer page views
- 16% decrease in customer satisfaction
- 7% loss in conversions
Thus, increased website speed results in improvements in:
- customer experience
- page views
- conversion rates
Does website speed matter?
We reduced our website load time by 50%
And we’ve still got further to go. Soon, we’ll be converting all our video embeds to pop-ups so that they only load for those visitors who want to see the videos.
How did we increase our website speed?
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about all that technical stuff
After we achieved such dramatic results with our own website, we took the next step to make these improvements available to all of our clients.
That’s why we now offer website hosting and website speed optimisations to all of our customers. Our hosting services include
- 5GB storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 1GB RAM
And, we’re offering our customers free website migrations this month (August 2018).
LiveseySolar Hosting includes
- Leading performance technologies to improve performance and customer experiences. All hosting services have CloudFlare technology with Railgun data compression tools implementable with one click installation
- Advanced security. We use advanced cloud isolation protocols to prevent the spreading of any malware that breaches the websites we host. If malware violates your website, we won’t just shut you down. We work with you to solve the vulnerability and help your business continue its operations.
- Balanced service. We never overload our servers with thousands of accounts and limit every server to a maximum of five hundred domains. That gives more than enough resources to ensure we never punish you for consumption via your website or other customers.
