Image optimization tools now available!

Written by Trifo

"A picture is worth a thousand words".

In 2018 it's more than likely that images on your web site are the largest assets downloaded by your visitors.

As a result, optimizing the images on your web site can often return some of the best performance improvements and byte savings as the fewer bytes the browser has to download, the less competition there is for the client's bandwidth and the faster the browser can download and render content on the screen.



And while with some content management systems like WordPress and Magento you get access to a dozen of different plugins and extensions that can help you optimize your web site images, that’s not the case with all applications and specifically – for custom built web sites.

When you shop online you, you're giving the store an enormous amount of personal information - your name, address, email and even payment data. When giving over this information, you have to trust that they'll handle it responsibly, that their systems are secure and that your data is not going to be compromised.

Written by David Kramaley
Being a startup founder can be tough. Prominent serial entrepreneur Elon Musk, has compared starting a company to eating glass. There are financial struggles, unpaid time, website downtime, taxes, accounting, and many other challenges (GDPR anyone?). It soon becomes obvious what Elon meant.

So, how can founders go from such adverse circumstances to prosperity and success? We recently raised £100,000 from investors and eventually closed on even more. To achieve that, we have needed every little advantage we could get. Regardless of how small, these advantages add up.

Insanely Fast Craft CMS Shared Hosting

Written by Jo Stonehouse
At Kualo, we're big fans of Craft CMS.

We first became aware of Craft a few years ago, but more recently we've seen an notable increase in the number of sites that are using it on our hosting platform.

Compared to other content management systems, Craft remains relatively unknown - but those who discover it quickly fall in love.

It's easy to see why, too.

Craft has many advantages over the "big gun" content management systems such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla - both for content creators and developers alike. Craft is simple, intuitive, elegant and lightweight, yet at the same time, extremely powerful and extensible. But let's get one thing clear - Craft is not for bang-it-out template sites, nor DIY website enthusiasts. No, Craft is for designers and developers who want total creative freedom and flexibility, with the need to work within the constraints and bloat of a CMS with countless plugins, template limitations and security woes. Craft is aimed at people who see web development as a true craft.

So, this brings me to the purpose of this post - Craft CMS hosting.
