Having a fast website design is good not only for the users of the website but also for the search engines because they also love websites that load faster and save valuable time. Therefore, there is no second thought on the importance of a sound loading speed website.
In this blog post, we are going to share 7 reasons for the slow loading speed of a website along with some advice on how your web designer can improve it.
Having complex codes in the web pages makes the website load slower than usual. Therefore, you must cut down the coding (if you have complex codes) and keep a simple coding structure which will definitely help your webpages to load in a better way.
Using too many images on your web pages can slow down the loading speed of your website and therefore it’s recommended to optimize the images so that the size of the image files can be reduced without losing the image quality noticeably. A web designer can easily use the tools like Photoshop and optimize the images for a website.
How can a web developer fix the slow loading speed of your webpages:
- Installing a cache plugin
- Upgrading all the plugins
- Image compression
- Minifying JS & CSS files
- & more…

Flash is really a NO for all the webmasters who want their users to view the website in a few seconds at the same time who want their websites to get ranked on higher pages of search engines. Flash is bad not only for the users because they take too long to load but also for search engines that don’t like Flash elements at all.
#4 Multiple JQuery Scripts
Based on our experience as a web design company in India, we have found several websites which have been reported slow due to the usage of multiple JQuery. In order to avoid the conflicts among various JQuery codes, its always recommended to use minimum JQuery instead which will improve not only the speed of the website but will also avoid any chances of run-time errors which may arise due to the JQuery conflicts.
To remove multiple JQuery scripts, you may need to hire a web developer as it requires coding knowledge to do this job. If you are on a budget, you can consider hiring a website developer in India.
#6 Web Hosting
If your website has gained quite good recognition and there is a lot of traffic on your website, then a shared hosting plan may not suffice your requirements. Therefore, a wise decision for this situation may be to look out for a Virtual Private Server (VPS) Plan which will noticeably enhance the loading speed of your website yet at an affordable rate.
CDN (Content Delivery Network) helps a website to enhance its loading speed by rendering the webpages to the users from their nearest data centers. The far a server is from a user, the slower will be the loading speed of the webpages. CDN helps the webpages to render for the users from their nearest data center which reduces the request time from both client-to-server & server-to-client. As a result, a great surfing experience will be served for your users.
