We've always prided ourselves on the fast loading times of websites built with Divhunt, but we didn't stop there. We've made further improvements, reducing load times by up to 50%! Even our marketing website, which is content-rich with 12MB of images and videos on the homepage, now loads in under 800ms.
This is more than just a claim; you can see the results for yourself. Check here.
We like to keep things transparent, and developers might find these information interesting, so heres how we improved our scores:
Better minification of HTML, CSS & JS.
We always had our code minified, but it was only regular minifcation. Now with this system we intergrated a minification of code that actually shortens variables, so it reduces file size up to 40% in total.
CDN Now Supports Over 20 Locations
Divhunt's websites are now faster and more accessible than ever, thanks to an expanded CDN (Content Delivery Network) service. Previously, we only supported a few locations like the USA and Germany, but as of today, we've extended our reach to more than 20 locations worldwide. No matter where your visitors are, they can enjoy a quick and responsive browsing experience on your website!
Pages Lazy Load
All websites in Divhunt are designed as single-page applications, which means that once the initial page is loaded, every other page appears instantly. However, in the past, if you visited a website with a large number of pages, like 300+ pages, the entire JSON file containing all your site's data would be loaded in the background. This could create a massive file and potentially slow down the website's performance.
But now, we've made a significant improvement. Instead of loading the entire JSON file at once, we generate a separate JSON file for each page. This file only loads when you attempt to access that specific page. So whether you have 1 or 5000 pages, your website's performance will remain consistent and fast. This new 'Pages Lazy Load' feature ensures a more efficient and responsive browsing experience for all your visitors.
