Clook Launches New Magento Optimised Hosting Service
As you’d expect of an award-winning provider of web hosting we’re always looking into ways of enhancing our service offering, something we’ve done recently with the launch of our Magento Optimised Hosting service.
Why do I need an optimised Magento hosting service?
The answer is quite simple – your customers expect more. The UK wide rollout of fast internet at home means that your customers expect your web store to load quicker than ever before. In 1999, the average user was willing to wait 8 seconds for a page to load. Today, 80% of your users expect your site to load in under 2 seconds.
If you have a slow site, you’re missing out on sales and so the extra cost of an optimised service makes perfect business sense.
How do we make Magento faster?
Our Magento Optimised Hosting solutions enable your Magento store’s pages to load faster. We’ve seen significant performance improvements on customer’s stores who were involved in our testing phase. On average they load 12 times more quickly, which has enabled them to maximise conversion rates and crucially has given them an online competitive edge.
There’s a number of small optimisations involved in our Magento optimised servers, which when combined produce a huge increase in performance, compared to a traditional Magento install.
We only use enterprise hardware in our Magento optimised servers, including the use of SSDs as standard.
Multiple layers of caching
Our optimised Magento servers make use of EasyCache a caching mechanism which significantly enhances web performance by reducing the amount of database queries needed to render a page.
Clook’s CDN allows your visitors to load your Magento store’s static content from over 40 globally diverse locations. This removes load from your server and ensures that content is served from the closest server to your customers to achieve the fastest speeds possible.
Optimised software stack
We streamline the software installed on our optimised Magento servers, so that only software required for Magento to function is in use. This frees up hardware resource and ensures that Magento is able to make full use of it.
How much do Clook’s optimised Magento solutions cost?
Our Magento solutions start from just £20 per month with no setup fees. Pricing is based upon the amount of visitors the site will serve per month and the size of the SSD disk space.
If you have an existing Magento store we will migrate it for free.
