We're looking for someone that can help us optimize our magento store and speed it up as fast as it can get for the hosting plan we're on now. We dont have a huge budget at this point but are definitely open to all ideas so please bid even if your proposal is more complex and maybe we can work something out.
We are running on a lightspeed server with SSD drive, have a caching module installed from Aitoc which really helped, have compressed all images, enabled gzip and a few other .htaccess settings.
Cached page load times are fast, between 1~2 seconds, but pages that are dynamic, havent cached recently, etc are 3-6 seconds and we want to lower those down.
At a minimum, your bid should be to:
**Convert commonly loaded images to CSS Image Sprites
**Remove unused CSS (If you can confirm it is not used in any areas, admin panel, protected areas, etc)
Optional Items in your bid should include:
**Review pages with longer load times and reduce bottlenecks where possible
**Reduce/Consolidate database querries on pages with longer load times
**Modify server environment settings for the best performance (within limitations of hosting plan)
**Setup Amazon S3 CDN hosting for our images and tell us how to use it
**Use your expertise to accomplish our goal!
Please email any questions and look forward to your response!
