My website is slow

Modified on Mon, 01 Nov 2021 at 03:57 PM

Slow websites can be caused by many things:

  • Server needs reconfiguring
  • Plugins and Wordpress need updating
  • Lots of resources to load (large images can be a big problem - here's how to optimise them)
  • Issues with 3rd party scripts
  • Not using caching
  • Not using a Content Delivery Website (CDN)
  • It could even be your Internet Service Provider

The good news is, all of these things are solvable! If you're on our support plan we can help with these things - the web changes all the time and it can be a cat and mouse game to keep on top of them. We can run your site through speed tools to identify any issues there.

One of the most common issues is large resources - adding video and images to your site without optimising can really impact the speed. We have a handy guide here to help with that:
