Page optimization

  • HTML 136.6 kB
    Images 869.3 kB
    Javascripts 732.1 kB
    CSS 143.6 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 1.9 MB. This result falls beyond the top 1M of websites and identifies a large and not optimized web page that may take ages to load. 80% of websites need less resources to load and that’s why Accessify’s recommendations for optimization and resource minification can be helpful for this project. Images take 869.3 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 136.6 kB
    • After minification 136.5 kB
    • After compression 35.3 kB

    HTML optimization

    HTML content can be minified and compressed by a website’s server. The most efficient way is to compress content using GZIP which reduces data amount travelling through the network between server and browser. HTML code on this page is well minified. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 101.3 kB or 74% of the original size.

    • Original 869.3 kB
    • After optimization 855.2 kB

    Image optimization

    Image size optimization can help to speed up a website loading time. The chart above shows the difference between the size before and after optimization. Afrilodge images are well optimized though.

    • Original 732.1 kB
    • After minification 731.6 kB
    • After compression 230.1 kB

    JavaScript optimization

    It’s better to minify JavaScript in order to improve website performance. The diagram shows the current total size of all JavaScript files against the prospective JavaScript size after its minification and compression. It is highly recommended that all JavaScript files should be compressed and minified as it can save up to 502.0 kB or 69% of the original size.

    • Original 143.6 kB
    • After minification 136.6 kB
    • After compression 38.3 kB

    CSS optimization

    CSS files minification is very important to reduce a web page rendering time. The faster CSS files can load, the earlier a page can be rendered. needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 105.3 kB or 73% of the original size.

Possible request optimization













Normal result

IP address uses IP addresses which are currently shared with 5 other domains. The more sites share the same stack of IP addresses, the higher the host server’s workload is. It is strongly recommended that the host server should be changed or the hosting provider should be requested to give a different (separate) IP address for this domain.

Language and encoding

N/A  language flag

Language claimed in HTML meta tag should match the language actually used on the web page. Otherwise can be misinterpreted by Google and other search engines. Unfortunately we cannot identify language used on the page (probably there is a mix of languages, too little text or something else), while the claimed language is English. Our system also found out that main page’s claimed encoding is utf-8. Use of this encoding format is the best practice as the main page visitors from all over the world won’t have any issues with symbol transcription.

HTTPS certificate

SSL Certificate has no SSL certificate. Web browsing can be safer with HTTPS connection, so we suggest that it should be obtained for this site.

Poor result
