Hello.

Are there any methods that are simple that can help me out in improving website response time ? We are starting and we do not want things to get slow, since speed is something we should put to the max at first and I wanted to fasten it as much as I can.

Here is some tips to improve website response time:
  • Put CSS at the top and JS at the bottom
  • Specify a character set in HTTP headers
  • Link to your stylesheets, don’t use @import
  • Minify your CSS and JS files
  • Reduce Your redirects
  • Fix all broken links
  • Use a CDN (Content Delivery Network)
Hope this help.

Hello! If you have your site up using Google Chrome, and right-click on the page, you'll see the "Inspect" option. If you click that, then click the "Network" Panel at the top of the Google Chrome DevTools, you can get information about how long each element on your site will take to load. You can use this to potentially figure out what is bogging down your site's response time.
