Asset Domains

  • Asset Domains-
    Browsers tend to make concurrent calls for assets, like images and stylesheets, more effectively if they can do so to multiple domains. There's the risk that one of the domains might fail, of course, but the Internet is a wild and wooly kind of a place.In addition to employing a dedicated image server (if you aren't already doing that, then you have a little groundwork to do before you start seriously considering page load optimization), we plan to move our cached assets to servers that do not write cookies, which can be resource- (and hence, time-) intensive.

HardinOur Ken-Hardin sat down with our technology VPs at IT Business Edge, Troy Atwood and Steve Hardin, to discuss the steps we’ve taken over the past several months to move up about 35 percentile points in Google’s site-speed ranking – which we think is pretty good.

Some of the tactics involve infrastructure, some are basic housekeeping, and some are still in the works, but overall we’ve found that optimizing site performance is an ongoing initiative that you never entirely master.
