Speed Up Magento

Not open for further replies.

I thought it would do some good to share five very important things to do when you are trying to speed up the loading time of your Magento eCommerce store:

  1. Optimize TTFB
    For those that don't know, TTFB (Time to First Byte) measures the time that it takes for a site to show on the screen. Essentially, when a site loads, users see a blank white screen. TTFB measures how long your users see that white screen before they see your site. An ideal TTFB should be at 200 milliseconds.
  2. Never Use JS Bundling
    Contrary to popular belief, bundled JavaScript files actually take longer to load as opposed to many, small, JavaScript files.
  3. Use Varnish
    Varnish works faster than a built-in cache. M2 has native support for Varnish.
  4. CSS Optimization
    You can optimize your site's CSS by placing your above-the-fold content hight in your HTML and moving all the other CSS resources to the bottom of the page. You will also have to make sure that your CSS and JavaScript files are minimized.
  5. Run Store in Production Mode
    There are three modes in Magento 2: Developer, default, and production. Production mode is the fastest loading mode for any Magento 2 stores.
