YunesSwathe.com is 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. YunesSwathe.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 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 the speed report prior to the migration to the eBoundHost Magento Optimized Cloud Platform:
First Byte Time – F
Keep-alive enabled – A
Compress Transfer – A
Compress Images – D
Progressive JPEGs -F
Cache static content -A
Effective use of CDN – X
As we can see here, this is a standard shared hosting server that is set up to cater to most php/mysql CMS (i.e. WordPress, Drupal, Magento, etc…) Kudos for setting keep alive to enabled and caching static content. Of course it’s not enough to get the demanding Magento platform to load at a reasonable speed. That’s why we see a horrendous 2300ms TTFB here.
STEP 2 – TRANSFER WEBSITE TO MAGENTO OPTIMIZED PLATFORM
Through assisted migration, Yunesswathe.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 Yunesswathe.com.
Let’s look at the new report after migration:
FACTOR BEFORE CHANGE AFTER CHANGE RESULT
First Byte Time F A GREATLY Improved
Keep-alive enabled A A Neutral
Compress Transfer A A Neutral
Compress Images D F Needs Work
Progressive JPEGs F F Neutral
Cache static content A A Neutral
Effective use of CDN X X Neutral
We have achieved substantial improvement in time to 1st byte and page load times. CDN was not chosen by YunesSwathe.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 YunesSwathe.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.
YunesSwathe.com got their website page time to 1st byte reduced from 2.229s to 0.161s, which is almost 14 times faster. The fully loaded website time was also reduced by 57% from: 10.298s to 4.448s.

Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.
eBoundHost.com has the best customer service in ANY industry. Their support staff answers phone calls and emails immediately and they have time and time again gone over and above their responsibilities to make sure I am taken care of and that my clients are happy. I have many websites hosted here from small business to corporate level and have dealt with many hosting companies in the industry and eBoundHost.com is by far the BEST hosting provider there is. Great prices, great service, great hosting packages, and a killer reseller program! THANK YOU AGAIN :)
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.
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 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.
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 is the best. I have dealt with many hosting providers over the last 10 years. eBoundHost surpasses them all. Absolutely the highest level of quality service anywhere. Do yourself a big favor and sign on with eBoundHost.
I'm Stan Bogdashin, a customer of your hosting company for the past 2 years. Our company provides web design, development and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services.

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 have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
