A content management system (CMS) lets you edit, publish, and manage a website in a consistent way. Using a back-end database with front-end templates, a CMS flows content from the database into templates to create static or dynamic web pages. CMS-based websites allow more output options than static sites (RSS feeds, PDF file creation), easier site-wide updates and maintenance, and better scaling for larger sites. Unfortunately, as a website grows in complexity, content management systems can cause performance problems of their own with slow response times.
Companies finance complex CMS and database delivery systems only to find they are not up to the task. Slow response times frustrate users, increase bail-out rates, and ultimately decrease profits. Even Google PPC campaigns can suffer because of lower quality scores due to slow-loading landing pages. Some of the common problems we find with CMS-based website include lack of effective caching, inefficient MySQL queries, poor template configuration, and outdated software.
Have the Speed Optimization experts at Web Site Optimization analyze your CMS-based web site for maximum speed. We'll show you where the performance bottlenecks are, and how to fix them. After you (or we) implement our suggestions your CMS-based web pages will display faster to maximize user satisfaction and minimize bandwidth costs.
We offer back-end CMS performance analysis, hybrid (front-end/back-end) performance analysis, and hybrid plus optimization services for CMS-based websites. While there are many content management systems available, Joomla and Drupal are two popular open source CMS systems where we have expertise. We also work with other CMS systems (outside of Joomla and Drupal), including custom systems.
These services are performed by expert Joomla/Drupal developers, who have been creating and optimizing Joomla sites for many years. The complete five-layer LAMP stack (Linux Apache MySQL PHP/Perl) is analyzed, and in the case of the top service, optimized as well.
We offer three levels of service, Good, Better, and Best. As part of this package, we'll deliver a complete report that covers the following areas:
Note that this page refers to LAMP-based analysis and optimization. If Windows-based analysis and optimization services are desired, we have a team that specializes in Windows .net application development. Rush service is available for an additional fee. Please call for pricing.
