5 Tips for Magento Performance Optimisation

As experts in web design and in bringing effective ecommerce strategy to a variety of clients and businesses, we here at Vital Concept are confidently versed in the Magento web design platform – it’s truly one of the very best ecommerce foundations on the market, and here are just some of the ways in which you can use Magento development to your advantage.

Keep Updating

If you thought that once your Magento web design was up and running that was the end of the story, think again.  Magento development continues well into a website’s shelf life, meaning that it is essential to keep your version updated to ensure that you have the latest patches and security fixes that have been released.  Your business and your custom may depend on it!

Declutter Your Dashboard

While all versions of Magento are feature-rich and this really does improve release on release, there’s much to be said for removing any unnecessary or rarely-used widgets and applications from your installation.  If you’re in the market for efficiency and to make ecommerce and Magento web design as simple as possible, this is a no-brainer.

Be Server Smart

Choosing a capable and local server to host your Magento web design will ensure that you have the best possible environment set up to host any Magento web development that you may be handling.  It’s essential that you find and use a responsible and reliable server system that can handle the traffic that you both expect and are keen to attract.

File Merging

Going a little deeper into Magento development will enable you to merge together your CSS and JavaScript files.  Doing so will increase efficiency greatly for your visitors – as it will enhance loading times and will ensure that your website keeps ticking over.

Use Magento Compilation

Fancy a performance boost of up to 50%?  Magneto’s handy Compilation feature enables you to copy files into one directory, meaning shorter load times and less file reading.  

These are just some of the ways in which you can use Magento development to help speed up your ecommerce website – for more tips and tricks, contact us today for more information!
