[Others]Site Speed

More Posted time:Aug 25, 2019 21:05 PM
My website is hosted in China on Alicloud - 4GB RAM and 2 vCore CPU, and its slow:

+ https://www.merits.com.cn/

It takes 11.4s to load for 1.7mb. GTMetrix reports are:

Now, I have the parent site on siteground (Singapore), and it takes 4.7s:

The siteground version has less server resources.

So I mocked up the page without just the images - so no database calls:

It takes 10.3s - for 1.32mb:

So - what could explain this slow server speed? Why are images so slow?

if you're targeting China market, you should consider using page speed test from China
also, using CDN, cache will help too

I see from the GTmetrix stats that there are two resources which are slowing down your website from what would otherwise be a 4 second load time to a 11+ second load time. These are:
1) https://www.merits.com.cn/images/banner/l_home-q7.jpg
2) https://www.merits.com.cn/images/banner/l_home-m5.jpg

Both these are over 500 KB in size. If you remove these temporarily, your website load time should be around four or five seconds. If you must use these images, you can reduce their file size by using image compression and optimization techniques.

To optimize images for your website, use Cloudinary

here's an awesome tips to make your website more faster
Hey there,
i just check your website speed on gtmetrix. I can see that a lot of things are missing
starting from CND! what is CDN:
1 - CDN stands for content delivery network
A content delivery network (CDN) refers to a geographically distributed group of servers that work together to provide fast delivery of Internet content. A CDN allows for the quick transfer of assets needed for loading Internet content including HTML pages, javascript files, stylesheets, images, and videos. The popularity of CDN services continues to grow, and today the majority of web traffic is served through CDNs, including traffic from major sites like Facebook, Netflix, and Amazon.A properly configured CDN may also help protect websites against some common malicious attacks, such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks.
there are a lot of websites who provide this service but my personel suggest is going with Cloudflare

2 - compression HTML pages
shortly you take your code source and put it here in this website Free online tool to compress HTML then replace the code with the compressed code,
This will speed up your website in the loading

3 - compression Images
