PrestaShop users around the world have gained another paramount competitive advantage with the boost of the highest site speeds in the industry from A2 Hosting. Today’s modern consumers are busy individuals with high expectations for shopping online, which means online merchants need a hosting provider that can deliver the fast speeds online shoppers expect. A2 Hosting tested their high speed performance for PrestaShop against their competitors and topped the charts. According to their SSD performance tests, PrestaShop pages load up to 300% faster when hosted on the SSD drive as compared to a normal hard drive. Read more about their high speed testing here.
