9 Ways to Improve The Performance of a Magento Website


In today’s digital World, website speed and performance are crucial to business’ success. If your website doesn’t load within a “blink of an eye”, then your visitors are gone and may never return to your site again. Magento eCommerce is on one the best open-source ecommerce platforms. Below, we mention only 9 out of dozens of Magento Website Performance optimization tasks we can perform on a Magento eCommerce Website.

Magento Website Performance Optimization

  1. Optimize Media Content – Optimize and compress images and videos using various tools.
  2. Lazy Loading – Load images and videos only when they are visible in the browser (the visitor has scrolled to that HTML element).
  3. Minify HTML, CSS, and Javascript – Minify and optimize your HTML, CSS, and Javascript code by removing whitespace and comments such that they load faster.
  4. Caching – Caching is vital for site’s speed and initial load time. There are several caching models we can implement and those depend on your website content and how much traffic it processes.
  5. Remove Unused Code/Content – Remove plugins, media, and pages that are no longer used. It’s also a good practice to clean up database tables.
  6. PHP – Update to PHP7. PHP7 improves performance and makes your site more secure.
  7. Gzip Compression – If enabled, Gzip compresses the files that are sent from the server to the browser thus making the HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Media files load faster.
  8. Test – Use online site performance testing tools such as Google PageSpeed to get feedback and improve on certain metrics.
  9. Use a Content Delivery Network like Cloudflare.
