Title: Webserver and website speed
Post by: jainteq on Aug 26, 2022, 02:54 AM
I have a Joomla site. Can the speed of the website depend of which web server the hosting uses? For my part, I have already optimized everything that I could. But brakes, and specific ones, are still sometimes observed. The Apache web server is currently being used. I heard that Litespeed is now in vogue, it seems to work faster, is it true?

What is concrete brakes?
What is "I have already optimized everything that I could"
What is the website visit?
Joomla, of course, is still so CMS, but on a bunch of Nginx + Apache it works fine with attendance up to 4-5k hits per hour, on the cheapest 4 euro VPS, tested on fornex and fastvps.

P.S. And if there is more attendance, then you need to change not the server, but the CMS of the website, and switch from Joomla to the assembly, or self-writing, made specifically for this project.

It is incorrect to test the speed of the site from the server itself, since this is too short a route for loading pages. The indicator will be high, but it will not correspond to reality. After all, with a real download, the distance from web server to the site visitor's device, the speed of the provider and other factors are taken into account.
The speed is influenced not only by the quantity, but also by the quality of the content on the site: layout, photos, text, product cards. If the speed of the site is small, then this may negatively affect the ranking in search engines.
This is confirmed by data in the Google Webmaster Central news blog .

The page loading speed may vary for users: it depends on the server load, Internet channel, software operation and other factors. Analytics services calculate the average time to display content during visits of different users. Therefore, the indicator turns out to be quite generalized.
Let's say a non-target audience from another region regularly visits web site, or one of the Internet service providers provides a poor-quality connection. Such visits underestimate the indicator, according to him alone it is not necessary to conclude about the low speed.
 It is best to compare the results of several indicators. This way you will have the most accurate information.
