Do you find that your website is suddenly taking crazy amounts of bandwidth? Or maybe consistent, otherwise reliable traffic is just not enough for your site? While there are many reasons this could happen, here are some of the most common ways subsidiaries could get it.
1. Too many images.
When you have images on your site, it takes a lot of bandwidth to load. It’s like having many different versions of the same photo, that’s bandwidth-intensive. If you can reduce how many images you have on your site, you can speed up your loading speed, and you will also have a better user experience.
2. Lack of updates.
Ik betrayal is a major reason for bandwidth leaks. The reason is that some users never download the updates, and as a result, your site could be having bandwidth issues. Make sure that your site is always up to date by testing your site regularly, and doing so immediately before going live.
3. Too many startup scripts.
Having many startup scripts on your website will likely make loading the site suffer. Research how many startup scripts you really need to have on hand, and try to limit the load they each need to load on your site. You can also group similar services together, and control which services load at startup, thus speeding up the overall loading time.
4. Using too much bandwidth.
A lot of times, bandwidth is oversubscribed, and this causes websites to slow down. The simplest way to check if your site is overloaded is to go to stats and see what chunk of the web is loaded. You should be able to see what portion is loaded slow, and simply click on the title of the page to open it up. Another way to do this is go to betamax.com and use their bandwidth checker to see exactly how much bandwidth you are using. Once you use Betamax you can then download the bandwidth report and see just how many domains and websites are using up that bandwidth.
5. Using a foolproof proxy.
F foolproofing your proxy is essential. Why? Because the problem can look like this: URL getting “phished” or “fooled” – tools or tricks used by hackers to make your website look like something it isn’t. If you have a legitimate website, like an email submission site, or file-sharing site, it will never have to be fooled. The only time it would be possible for a hacker to do this would be if you allow them to.
6. Using the exact same servers for email and websites.
The only time this would be a bad idea is if the same instance of your website or email service appeared on two different sites. Then, on the second site, you would need to use a different IP address, and change the port number port. This would fool most firewalls.
But, if you have a server with two IP addresses, and you use the same IP address for email and for the website, you will have to take care that no one hijacks your single IP address. And, you will still need to be careful about using the same IP address for the whole site, emailing it from a different location, as this would interfere with the HTTP protocol and slow things down.
7. By donating server resources to the hosting scheme.
There are several situations where this is useful. at a small scale, this means that you don’t want to send all of your resources to your hosting account, as this may crowd the server and make it harder to serve your website. At a larger scale, it can be useful to share resources with other sites, as one resource can be assigned to a number of sites – and if one site goes down, don’t assign any of its resources to the server at that site.
8. By keeping your software updated and downloading free software whenever it’s available.
It’s always best practice to download free software whenever it’s available and you can. This way you’ll be sure that you have the latest version of your software on your site, which means it’s always up-to-date.
9. From the tracker of your emails to the public key of your domain name.
There are various services that can tell you what’s happening with your email – from the actual seeding, through a while before the spam appears, and after the material is picked up by the spam filters.
Some of these services include:
10. From the date you registered the domain, to this day.
11. Archive or delete all the old emails from before the domain name was registered.
Ideally, you’d like the entire inbox deleted, too, so any old emails you might have need to be archived. The problem is that there are usually a lot of records remaining that will make your registry difficult to read.
12.Get a domain name that is unique.
