We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 299 ms and then it took 2.9 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is a poor result, as 50% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 171.9 kB
    Images 948.3 kB
    Javascripts 430.3 kB
    CSS 341.1 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. 75% 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 948.3 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 171.9 kB
    • After minification 146.5 kB
    • After compression 28.8 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 25.4 kB, which is 15% 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 143.1 kB or 83% of the original size.

    • Original 948.3 kB
    • After optimization 888.8 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. ZDNet images are well optimized though.

    • Original 430.3 kB
    • After minification 428.7 kB
    • After compression 131.5 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 298.8 kB or 69% of the original size.

    • Original 341.1 kB
    • After minification 339.3 kB
    • After compression 55.3 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 285.8 kB or 84% of the original size.

Our browser made a total of 58 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 2% of them (1 request) were addressed to the original, 34% (20 requests) were made to and 24% (14 requests) were made to The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (358 ms) relates to the external source

Additional info on


The browser has sent 45 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of ZDNet. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 6 to 1 for JavaScripts and as a result speed up the page load time.









Possible request optimization











Normal result


As for redirects, our browser reached this domain in two steps. The first redirect led to, then it was forwarded to, and finally we managed to open this domain. We strongly recommend that the redirects should be reduced, as the more redirects a site has, the slower it loads.

IP address uses IP address which is currently shared with 4 other domains. The more sites share the same IP address, 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 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. Our service has detected that English is used on the page, and it matches the claimed language. 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.

Normal result
