Reducing Load Time Through Image Optimization

Reducing Load Time Through Image Optimization
Published on June 11, 2012

Even though more and more Internet users switch to broadband every year, a large portion of the web's population is still running on good old dialup connections. It is therefore unwise to count them out of the equation when you're hosting your website, and a very major consideration we have to make for dialup users is the loading time of your website.

Generally, all the text on your website will be loaded in a very short time even on a dialup connection. The culprit of slow-loading sites is mainly large images on your website, and it is very important to strike a delicate balance between using just enough images to attract your users and not to bog down the overall loading time of your site.

Find Your Net has gone to a greater length and optimized every single image for every site to make sure it loads in the least time possible.We have used image editing software to remove unnecessary information on your images, and thereby effectively reducing the file size of your image without affecting its appearance.

As for the images provided by you - well we try our best to make sure that no skewing, stretching or resizing of any kind happens on the website.  You might have noticed that when you uploaded your company logo for the first time.  In the near future we will allow adding additional images to the website or chosing pre-selected images for slideshows and more.  Once again we will ensure that these are optimized for fastest possible performance.

Frequent Questions

Can you build a template for me?

There isn't a simple answer for this, but lets start with the following statement: any template that is built for Find Your Net website can be used by all Find Your Net users as they wish.  So, if you are looking for a unique template, and wish to keep the design to yourself, we cannot help you.  You may want to send such request to our parent website at www.webdesignsnyc.com.  However, if you have a design of your own, and you don't mind sharing it, you can send it to us and we can review its compatibility.  If the template is compatible with our framework and is approved by company owner, we can build this template free of charge and link you to it.  Note that this would mean that anybody else who is hosted by Find Your Net will be able to chose this template for their website as well.
