After the latest updates, our efforts to ever improve the efficiency of websites was evidently illustrated, when a new customer decided to move their DotNetNuke site from a dedicated server to the Neetrix platform.
Unknown to us they made their own independent tests after the site was moved, to test the time the pages were served to the web browser as they didn't want the site to slow down for their customers and potential customers. In DNN they measured a reasonable response time average of 0.6 seconds. They immediately came to us when they were shocked to find exactly same test on their new Neetrix website has the average response time of 0.1 seconds. That is a whole 6 times faster, and as small as 0.6 and 0.1 seconds are, they found it very much noticeable in using the new site.
They were also anxious to tell us that they tested the site through Y-Slow, Yahoo's FireFox tool that gives sites gradings based on the way that the site is served to the web browser. On the DNN platform they received Grade F, which we later found to be common place with most websites, showing little effective website provisioning. After moving to Neetrix they were once again shocked to find their site go straight to Grade A.
So, not only had they saved money on hosting the website, but they found it quicker and easier to manage, and the site was more responsive to use. Which means they should get better search engine rankings in due course. A win on all counts!
