In the day of “here and now”, people grow impatient at a much quicker rate. The users of the internet today are used to getting what they want immediately. It is so important actually that a slow loading time can mean reduced conversions and people leaving your website.

In fact, just a second too slow and people will neglect to view more pages and they will also be dissatisfied with the new service. Approximately 50% of people who encounter a delay of at least 3 seconds will leave the page.

Website loading speed even affects Google search results.

Load CSS And Javascript Together

Websites are made up of many different scripts. There are scripts that are used for the website’s functionalities. There are also scripts that are used for the website’s look and feel.

These scripts can be loaded either separately or at the same time. If the scripts load separately, the website will load slowly. They will come out on the website in the order that you have them load. However, if you make your scripts load at the same time, things will move a lot faster.

Please note though this rule isn’t absolute. With regards to JavaScript, it is not recommended to load it with the others. In fact, it is best if you have it load after all the others have loaded asynchronously.

Reduce DNS Lookup Time

Your domain name system is also responsible for the load time of your website. In fact, it plays quite a large role in it.

The DNS comes into effect whenever a website is searched or clicked. The DNS transforms that URL into the IP address for the website.

Consider utilizing a faster DNS to speed up your website.

These are only a couple ways to have a faster website. Speed is important for a website, as it will dictate if the website is visited or left.
