osCommerce

The e-commerce.

index.php loadup speed

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this, but when I go to my website (www.wickedelectronics.com), it takes forever for the pages to load up. Even when you're gonig through all of the categories, it just takes a while for everything to load up.

 

Would it have anything to do with the fact that I have about 10,000+ items in the product database and I only have about 3,000 items categorized? Is 10,000 items too much for osCommerce?

 

Thanks in advance,

i would venture to say it is where you are hosted, most likely on a shared server which is under powered.

 

# This site is not using HTTP compression, otherwise called content encoding using gzip. Consider compressing your textual content (XHTML, JavaScript, etc.) with mod_gzip or similar products.

* CSS alternate stylesheets may be referenced in the HTML but are not actually downloaded until they are needed and are therefore not included in the total page size.

Analysis and Recommendations

TOTAL_HTML - Congratulations, the total number of HTML files on this page (including the main HTML file) is 1 which most browsers can multithread. Minimizing HTTP requests is key for web site optimization.

TOTAL_OBJECTS - Warning! The total number of objects on this page is 17 - consider reducing this to a more reasonable number. Combine, refine, and optimize your external objects. Replace graphic rollovers with CSS rollovers to speed display and minimize HTTP requests.

TOTAL_IMAGES - Warning! The total number of images on this page is 15 , consider reducing this to a more reasonable number. Combine, refine, and optimize your graphics. Replace graphic rollovers with CSS rollovers to speed display and minimize HTTP requests.

TOTAL_CSS - Congratulations, the total number of external CSS files on this page is 1 . Because external CSS files must be in the HEAD of your HTML document, they must load first before any BODY content displays. Although they are cached, CSS files slow down the initial display of your page.

TOTAL_SIZE - Warning! The total size of this page is 103932 bytes, which will load in 20.91 seconds on a 56Kbps modem. Consider reducing total page size to less than 30K to achieve sub eight second response times on 56K connections. Pages over 100K exceed most attention thresholds at 56Kbps, even with feedback.

HTML_SIZE - Caution. The total size of this HTML file is 34927 bytes, which is above 20K but below 100K. With a 10K ad and a logo this means that your page will load in over 8.6 seconds. Consider optimizing your HTML and eliminating unnecessary features. To give your users feedback, consider layering your page or using positioning to display useful content within the first two seconds.

IMAGES_SIZE - Warning! The total size of your images is 63141 bytes, which is over 30K. Consider optimizing your images for size, combining them, and replacing graphic rollovers with CSS.

CSS_SIZE - Caution. The total size of your external CSS is 5864 bytes, which is above 4080 bytes and less than 8K. For external files, try to keep them less than 1160 bytes to fit within one higher-speed TCP-IP packet (or an approximate multiple thereof). Consider optimizing your CSS and eliminating features to reduce this to a more reasonable size.

MULTIM_SIZE - Congratulations, the total size of all your external multimedia files is 0 bytes, which is less than 4K.

Where did you find this info? I'm only asking because I was looking for information and I couldn't find it.

 

Another question, aren't all host providers, giving me a shared server?

 

Thanks

there are differences in servers/hosts. some of the better hosts only have a limited amount of customers on their servers, thus the higher price.

others have a higher amount of users on their servers, thus the lower price. also the slower the site.
