Challenge & Objectives
Tollring came to us as they were experiencing performance and speed issues with their 5 websites. These sites were scoring an F in page speed tests with Google and GTMetrix.
They were running a popular off the shelf WordPress theme, and had a dedicated server with another hosting provider.
MOT Of The Websites & Providing Advisories
Our initial step was to conduct a WordPress Health Check audit, so we could get a deeper understanding of how the site was built, and what their existing hosting environment included.
From this we were able to provide Tollring with a report and recommendations. Some key things we noticed from our audit was that their current server setup had no caching, and that their sites had no image optimisation.
Migrating To Impact’s Managed Hosting
Tollring decided to move all of their sites over to our WordPress Support plans, which meant they qualified for our multiple site 10% discount. Just from migrating from their previous setup and hosting, over to our hosting environment, their sites experienced immediate and noticeable speed and performance gains. Going from an F, to a B in GTMetrix.
From this immediate and drastic improvement, we can work with the client, to carry out further optimisation and now undertake any development to help improve their speed furthermore.
