We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 628 ms and then it took 13.9 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is a poor result, as 90% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 87.3 kB
    Images 4.2 MB
    Javascripts 2.8 MB
    CSS 1.9 MB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 9.1 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. 85% 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 4.2 MB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 87.3 kB
    • After minification 57.9 kB
    • After compression 12.8 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. This page needs HTML code to be minified as it can gain 29.4 kB, which is 34% of the original size. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 74.6 kB or 85% of the original size.

    • Original 4.2 MB
    • After optimization 3.7 MB

    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. Obviously, Cape Town needs image optimization as it can save up to 521.4 kB or 12% of the original volume. The most popular and efficient tools for JPEG and PNG image optimization are Jpegoptim and PNG Crush.

    • Original 2.8 MB
    • After minification 2.5 MB
    • After compression 716.9 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 2.1 MB or 75% of the original size.

    • Original 1.9 MB
    • After minification 1.9 MB
    • After compression 336.6 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 1.6 MB or 83% of the original size.

Our browser made a total of 227 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 42% of them (95 requests) were addressed to the original, 11% (24 requests) were made to and 10% (23 requests) were made to The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (6.8 sec) belongs to the original domain

Additional info on


The browser has sent 209 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of Cape Town. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 81 to 1 for JavaScripts and from 12 to 1 for CSS and as a result speed up the page load time.











Possible request optimization

As for redirects, our browser was forwarded to before it reached this domain.

IP address uses IP addresses which are currently shared with 15 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.

Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 86.1% of all visits is South Africa. It lies approximately 10230 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to South Africa or just closer to the user base.

Social Sharing Optimization

Open Graph description is not detected on the main page of Cape Town. Lack of Open Graph description can be counter-productive for their social media presence, as such a description allows converting a website homepage (or other pages) into good-looking, rich and well-structured posts, when it is being shared on Facebook and other social media. For example, adding the following code snippet into HTML <head> tag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:

Language and encoding

Normal result


N/A  language flag


EN en 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.
