...between 40 and 60% of online consumers will abandon a web page if it takes more than 3 seconds to load. This is a frightening statistic... and highlights the importance of being able to deliver a consistently fast browsing experience
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 4 September 2012
Vimeric, a provider of online content delivery services, today announced the launch of a new website acceleration service, which promises to substantially reduce website page load times by up to 75%.
The service, designed for large website operators, is a combination of content delivery technologies featuring traditional content delivery network (CDN) caching, dynamic site acceleration (DSA) for dynamic content retrieval, and Front-End Optimisation (FEO) for intelligent user-based “last mile” optimisations which take into account a website visitor’s location, device, bandwidth and browser.
“Industry research analysts report that between 40 and 60% of online consumers will abandon a web page if it takes more than 3 seconds to load. This is a frightening statistic for online marketers, retailers, publishers and brands - and highlights the importance of being able to deliver a consistently fast browsing experience to each and every site visitor, irrespective of how or where they’re connecting from,” said Luke Wheeler, Director of Vimeric. “This website acceleration service is a complete end-to-end acceleration and optimisation treatment for web content, leveraging the CDN capabilities of Level 3 - the world’s largest carrier of Internet traffic - and software of one of the world’s foremost front-end optimisation companies.”
Whilst the potential for significant speed increases for site operators are the headline benefit, it’s not the only reason to consider using the service. As Wheeler explains: “...the site acceleration service also offers near limitless scale to cater for sudden spikes in traffic and surges in site activity - whether planned or unplanned. It also helps significantly in ensuring maximum availability of your website, and offers the ability to cloak your site from Internet threats such as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Another factor of increasing relevance is the importance of page load speed on natural search engine (SEO) rankings, particularly Google.”
Vimeric will be offering the website acceleration as a cloud-based service, such that no code-level rewrites or additional hardware is required and the service may be purchased on a monthly rental basis.
