We’re often approached by clients looking to make their websites faster. Many believe that there must be one surefire solution to achieving this, but the reality is that making a website truly fly is sometimes a complex undertaking that requires extensive expertise.

Although the above list is not inclusive of every aspect that may impact a website’s loading speed, these are some of the primary considerations.
Silvercode uses stringent best practices when building your website to achieve an optimal loading speed, though we cannot guarantee any specific load time until we know exactly what will be on each page. Your functionality requirements, chosen hosting service, and a number of other factors will determine the final result. We can provide advice on determining the best balance in terms of functionality vs loading speed, and will work with you on the best course of action for your needs.
If your website was not built by Silvercode, you may request a website speed review and optimisation through our WordPress Website Premium Speed Optimisation service.
