Brick-anew.com is an example of a website that was hosted by a company that specializes in Magento and claims to offer optimized solutions. The slow speed concern was brought to our attention through the chat feature on our website. Brick-anew.com was brought back on the right track after going through a hosting transformation. Let’s examine the steps our team took to optimize this server so that we can fully understand how we achieved great speed results for www.brick-anew.com.
STEP 1 – WEBSITE SPEED OPTIMIZATION CASE STUDY DIAGNOSIS
The site was running at a slower speed from a general perspective and 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 just 3 speed reports prior to the migration to an eBoundHost Magento Optimized Dedicated Server:
1. Home Page – Old Host Load Time: 6.015s Time To 1st Byte: 3.067s
We offered to benchmark the store on our platform prior to making any changes to the current site. What this means is that we created a mirror copy of brick-anew.com and placed it on our server so that we could compare the 2 sites side by side. Here are the initial results. The test site loaded in only 3.8 seconds.
What eBoundHost Provided
We provided Brick-anew.com with a dedicated server, using hardware RAID-1 drives (SSD), 16 GB of RAM, and a top end Intel Quad Core e31230 email@example.comGHz CPU. RAID-1 was used for superior I/O (disk) performance, 16 GB of RAM was used for proper caching (MySQL).
The results were great, but as a group we decided to add Varnish & NginX to the equation and do some more optimizing. The load times went down even further:
1. Home Page, Optimized – Load Time: 2.222s Time To 1st Byte: 0.125s
Thanks to properly configured Varnish cache, Nginx, and image optimizations www.brick-anew.com is now in the top 1% of fastest sites on the web.

EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
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!
We at Alico have 4 domain names which we started subscribing at eBoundHost since more than 4 years. In brief they are the best webhosting provider with a sexy Control Panel and perfect fast response support.
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.
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.
