This case study looks at how a major fly fishing equipment retailer and wholesaler had their website’s slow page load speeds slashed down to barely nothing by switching to One Click Cloud – the best hosting for magento.

The Client

Fly N Guide is an e-commerce business that sells fly fishing gear to Australian and New Zealand customers through their online retail store and various wholesale clients.

The Situation

Fly N Guide used Magento 2 as their e-commerce platform of choice to create and manage their multiple websites with a stock list of tens of thousands of products. All of this data was being hosted on an outdated and un-optimised server that was causing slow load speeds and oppressive backend workloads for the Fly N Guide magento developers. The owners of Fly N Guide knew that the website needed a lot of optimisation in order to speed up page loads, but the company didn’t have the budget to pay for a full revamp.

The Solution

By moving the Fly N Guide website to One Click Cloud’s high end ultra-fast best hosting for Magento 2 hosting solution, the site was able to perform much closer to optimal effectiveness without having to go down the development route. One Click Cloud’s hosting platform has been designed specifically with Magento 2 e-commerce websites in mind, meaning that Fly N Guide were able to host their website on an optimised platform without having to pay any more than they were for their previous server.

The Results

Before switching to One Click Cloud, the average load time for a page on Fly N Guide’s website was seven seconds. After moving to our dedicated Magento 2 servers, that load time dropped to three seconds. Following some further optimisation from our team, that has once again dropped to just over a single second. The difference this makes for the end user experience is monumental.

Thanks to the best hosting for magento, Fly N Guide now has a higher performing website that equals more conversion rates and a better user experience.

If you are not up to speed, Google now uses page load speed as a critical ranking factor. Soon sites that do not pass page speed insights tests will be penalised in google rankings.

With next to flawless google page scores, Fly N Guide is way ahead of their competitors and ready to take advantage of higher page rankings when Google actually enforces these metrics here in Australia.
