Magento Website Speed Optimization Case Study – nursejamie.com
Nursejamie.com was an example of a website that was hosted on a Non-Magento Optimized Platform. The slow speed concern was brought to our attention via the Speed Test Request form on our website. Nursejamie.com was brought back on the right track after going through a hosting transformation. Let’s take a detailed walk-through to understand what was done to optimize this Magento site for speed.
STEP 1 – WEBSITE SPEED OPTIMIZATION CASE STUDY DIAGNOSIS
The site was already running at a good speed from a general perspective, but we knew that some further scope for speed improvement was left open for us based on our technical perspective. The site was diagnosed and analyzed to find out the limiting factors which were slowing down the websites performance.
Lets look at the speed report:
STEP 2 – TRANSFER WEBSITE TO MAGENTO OPTIMIZED PLATFORM
Through assisted migration, Nursejamie.com was moved from a standard web-hosting platform to our Magento Optimized Cloud platform.
STEP 3 – LAUNCHING ON A PRE-CONFIGURED PLATFORM
Once website functionality and performance were carefully verified, A records were pointed and the site seamlessly switched over. A new beginning for Nursejamie.com. No hiccups, just pure improvement.
We checked the websites speed once again.
FACTOR BEFORE CHANGE AFTER CHANGE RESULT
First Byte Time F B Improved
Keep-alive enabled A A Neutral
Compress Transfer F A Improved
Compress Images F F Neutral
Progressive JPEGs F F Neutral
Cache static content F A Improved
Effective use of CDN Y X Neutral
We have achieved substantial improvement in time to 1st byte, compress transfer and cache static content. CDN was not chosen by Nursejamie.com’s Admin for this particular situation due to the geographical location of their target market. Now the next step was to make sure that the developers for Nursejamie.com were aware that they have the option to optimize their images for better performance.
Optimizing this case study website was not as easy as it looks like from the report above.
eBoundHost has done some super-tweaking to achieve high speed performance levels.
Using a Magento Optimized host like eBoundHost offers much more configuration and tweaking flexibility to gain more speed on any Magento site.
Nursejamie.com got their website page time to 1st byte reduced from 0.867s to 0.337s, an average of 62% improvement on a relative performance scale. The fully loaded website time was also reduced from 5.100s to 2.233s, an improvement of 56%.

I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!
eBoundHost provides the very best service I've experienced in hosting. It takes less than 24h to get an answer to any question. They're great.
Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.
I have worked with many hosting companies over the course of my years in the website building and design business. I can say with certainty that eBoundHost.com is among the elite companies. I would and have recommended them to anyone.
eBoundHost.com has been a dream to work with. My questions are answered in minutes, the price is very reasonable, the interface is great, I am very happy with how smooth everything works.
Fast, reliable, full of features... Over the years, I have used more than a dozen hosts, both the big ones and smaller ones; eBoundHost.com is by far my favorite.
I came to eBoundHost after a very bad experience with a so called "big boy" - you know one of those places you are only a number. I have been a satisfied customer for more than 4 years now. The support is second to none.
eBoundHost is really the best hosting service in today's marketplace. Fast and efficient customer service with excellent IT knowledge. Good price and many bundled extra options. Highly recommended!
I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.
Every time I call with a problem or question, Everyone, especially Denis has always stepped up to the occasion. As usual he solved yet another problem I had. You have a superlative customer service. It doesn't get any better. Keep it up guys.
SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.
Every time I have contacted my host provider. They have responded with speed, courtesy and accuracy they are professional and a joy to work with.
I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.
Great customer service. After looking around for a while we signed up with eBoundHost. And I can assure you that we made right decision. Customer service is so good that I don't have words to explain. I would recommend this service to everyone.
Reliability and customer service that is rare and refreshing. We have been using eBoundHost for several years and unlike many companies who's service wanes over the years, the staff at eBound has consistently delivered top notch performance. Bravo!
From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!
