PrestaShop How To Improve Speed

There are several ways to improve the speed of a PrestaShop website:

  1. Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN): A CDN can greatly improve page load times by caching and delivering the website’s static assets (such as images, CSS, and JavaScript) from a location closer to the user.
  2. Enable caching: PrestaShop has built-in caching support for pages, blocks, and configurations. Enabling caching can significantly improve the performance of your website.
  3. Optimize images: Large image sizes can slow down page load times. Optimize your images by reducing their file size without losing quality.
  4. Minimize the number of modules: Each installed module can slow down your site. Remove or disable any modules that you are not using.
  5. Use a faster web server: Upgrading to a faster web server can improve the speed of your website. Consider using a VPS or a dedicated server for better performance.
  6. Use a modern PHP version: PrestaShop 1.7 recommends using PHP 7.2 or later.
  7. Use a modern database system: PrestaShop supports MySQL 5.6 or later, MariaDB 10.0 or later, and PostgreSQL 9.6 or later.
  8. Enable caching in your browser: This can reduce the number of requests the browser makes to the server, resulting in faster page loads.
  9. Use a performance optimization module: There are several modules available that can help optimize the performance of your PrestaShop website.
  10. Use a caching plugin: Some caching plugins can help to improve the speed of your website.

Note: Keep in mind that some of these options may require technical knowledge to implement, and some of them may not be possible to implement if you are on a shared hosting, if that’s the case, consider upgrading your hosting plan.
