Warning: this is a long read. We make no apologies about it. What we cover in this post tries to explain in as simple terms as possible what it takes to optimise a web site so that it is lightning fast and scalable to handle very high numbers of visitors. The techniques we use are applicable to most applications our customers usually build their sites on, such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento, amongst others. What's more, these techniques enable you to increase speed and capacity without great expense.


This isn't so much of a technical rundown for industry experts, but moreover, it's aimed at web site owners. If you run a web site that is either growing in popularity, likely to need to handle a high surge of traffic very rapidly, or which you simply want running at lightning fast speeds, this post will give you the basic understanding of what is involved.
