Bachrach is a century-old boutique men’s apparel brand with brick & mortar stores across the US. Bachrach.com is the Magento-based e-commerce arm of the business and offers a range of fashionable formal and semi-formal looks.
Bachrach has a full-featured and well-designed Magento store-front, but was struggling with page load times. Their time to first byte (TTFB) was over 300% slower than Google’s recommendation and some product pages took over 7 seconds to fully load and render.
David Ko, the e-commerce director for Bachrach, was looking for a way to get web performance under control and put the site into a hosting platform that could handle Bachrach’s growth. Until the site was ready to handle heavy traffic, increasing sales would be challenging to say the least.
David approached eBoundhost for help, and we set about testing the site’s performance KPIs. After recording the pre-migration metrics and collecting the specific requirements for Bachrach.com, eBoundHost architected a Jetrails® Pro Cluster Platform to properly fit the web site. This cluster is right-sized for their normal daily traffic and can be scaled to handle extreme spikes during sales and the holiday season rush.
The process of moving Bachrach.com to the eBoundHost JetRails® Pro Cluster Platform was “the easiest transition I’ve been a part of.” David also praised the “flawless” support team, saying it’s been “instantaneous – there are no automated prompts. When you call, a real Magento specialist picks up the phone.”
After migration, the speed improved drastically. TTFB came in below 300 milliseconds, down from over 1,000 ms. Speed Index improved by 40%. Performance under load skyrocketed – the site could now handle several thousand users without slowing down or needing to scale up with more hardware. More importantly, David saw a 2.5% increase in conversion and an 8% decrease in shopping cart abandonment.
Putting Bachrach.com on an appropriate hosting environment delivers more than better numbers in a speed test. By increasing performance, they also gained:

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'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. Want to thank you for helping us by providing great hosting seamless support - this is why I continue to recommend you and don't use anyone else for hosting!
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 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.
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 have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
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.
EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
