Why WassupBlog Now Hosted On A VPS Host
You certainly don’t have to be Tom Cruise to ‘have a need’ for speed! Nope, because even a blogger, who wants to supply his readers with the ultimate experience, requires speed! Sure, we all know that content is king, but, people may not hang around long enough to see how good your content is if your blog takes too long to load. That’s bad and what’s worse is that if your blog is all about making money, then having a slow blog may be costing you sales.
I’ve done a couple of posts on how to increase your blog speed, the last one being Taking The Time To Increase Your Blog’s Speed, but this one is going to show you ways that won’t just make your blog faster it will also make Google happier, and we all want to do that don’t we?
I’ve put up with this blog loading too slowly for way too long, and because I didn’t want to get rid of any of my plugins to increase its speed, there was only one thing for me to do. It was to say to goodbye to BlueHost and move this blog away from shared hosting to InMotion hosting. I probably would have made a move a lot sooner if it wasn’t for BlueHost’s CPU throttling, but in the end, I outgrew even that.
Because We’re Now Hosted On A VPS Host Speed Is Great
Although there was a remarkable improvement in speed after moving the blog to InmotionHosting, I was a little miffed when Google’s Page Speed Insight. It only gave me a score of 64/100. Nope, I wasn’t going to stand for that, and so I did some tweaking, and I got the score up to 89/100. However, before taking their result as gospel, I decided to give WebPageTest a go to see what sort of result they would provide.
Long story short, I managed to tweek the speed to an acceptable level.
