What Makes Our Setup Performing Better, this has been asked by a web analyst to us today via email. Reply of the email is a guide for a high performance website. In this article I will disclose some of the “magic formula” and ultimately you will come to the conclusion, What Makes Our Setup Performing Better is nothing but the hard work and deep analysis of every minute points.
Home is what Makes Our Setup Performing Better
Where I usually write and post the articles is one of the best possible place in a busy town to concentrate. It is almost impermeable to outer disturbances. This point is important for deep analysis. When the website was opened and up to few months ago, I used a Compaq / HP Windows 7 Laptop. I prefer high performance laptops over desktops as I do not love a big machine for work. Even the servers are becoming modular now to save space and energy consumption. Now 15″ Mac Book Pro is used for all works. On the move, Android tablet or Nokia Symbian Smart Phone is used while on the go. I use Virtual private Network from my ISP and it is wireless Internet capable of providing up to 15 Mbps speed. I used Microsoft Arc Wireless mouse ago, but I tested the speed of my work with MacBook Pro’s touchpad and mouse, wireless mouse needed more time as I need to adjust and reposition my hand to keyboard. So its not used now.
Server is what Makes Our Setup Performing Better
Our server can scale up to use 30720 MB of RAM if needed with load balancers and performance is enhanced by Akamai’s technology delivered by Rackspace. We do not need to think about down time or anything about the Server, it is fully managed by Rackspace’s efficient team.
We use a Premium Theme Framework with custom Child Theme with lot of modifications. Quite obviously it is WordPress with 47 plugins installed and it loads within 2.7 to 3.5 seconds with all eye candies on. This is possible because our PHP memory is set to the maximum as per recommendation by Rackspace. Caching is done using WP Super Cache with the needed modifications, some uncommenting things and adding lines of codes to adapt the Cloud Server setup. Along with WP Super Cache, we use CDN Sync Tool tools to offload files. As you can see, we are using Socialize Plugin below every post. We use Ad Injection Plugin to deliver the Ads properly.
We use almost all resources of Google – be it paid or free. Among the paid Resources there is Google Urchin, a Server side Analytics tool.
Quite obviously, not all our chemistry is disclosed. You can easily use our chemistry with the same performance for your own website.
