Boosting Site Performance

  • Post author:

Lodgik is built on top of the best hosting infrastructure for WordPress websites in the world… Kinsta.

The reason we chose Kinsta as our platform is that performance and security are always the main areas of focus. So, it won’t come as a surprise that all of our hosted sites are going to receive a huge performance gain. Up to 200% for our clients.

We host our sites on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Kinsta continually monitors GCP improvements to see when/where those changes can benefit our clients. Google recently announced a new, next-generation compute-optimized virtual machine (C2). And we’ll be moving all of our client sites onto these new machines.

Over the past month, we’ve been testing these new machines internally and have been blown away by their performance. It varies based on the type of site, but we are seeing performance improvements from 30% all the way up to 200%!

Not only will you see faster load times, but you’ll probably also notice a difference in the responsiveness of your WordPress admin dashboard. For those of you working on your WordPress sites regularly, this should help make your workflow a little more enjoyable.

Kinsta –

Here are a couple key performance metrics that come along with this change:

  • 2X to 3X as many requests handled per second
  • Site response improved by 200 %: from 250ms to 100ms

If you want to read more about the details of how this all works, be sure to check out the Kinsta blog link in the quote above. Otherwise, just sit back and enjoy the improved performance for your site.
