What have we done so farImproving the performance of the website is a key aim, and we have implemented a number of improvements already.
CompressionThis essentially reduces the size of the files on the server before they are downloaded. This can have a significant impact on transmitted file sizes and improve page load times.
HTTP/2This is a more efficient protocol over the previous HTTP 1.1 method that was being used. All modern browsers support this feature which should reduce overall download times for a web page.
Compressing imagesImages are one of the worst offenders in contributing to large web page sizes which cause slow page loading times and greater carbon emissions. Often images can be reduced in file size without any loss in visible quality.
Energy supplierThe server, router and other networking components are powered by 100% renewable energy.
What can still be improvedWe are constantly seeking to make our web pages more efficient and improving the experience for our visitors. Here are other areas that we are working on.
Streamlining our codeReducing file size has a big impact on load times, user experience and the environment. Every kb saved can quickly add up to a large cumulative amount. On top of file size reduction methods, we are actively looking at where our website code can be optimized.
