Hi there,

I've just finished designing a new website - http://www.rjthompsonmusic.com

It looks quite good, but I'm a little concerned with the speed at which the homepage loads.

I've ran Google Page Speed and it suggests Deferring the Parsing of Javascript elements, but I have no idea what that means or how to do it.

How would you go about speeding the site up, especially when viewed on a mobile device?

Many thanks,

HT

You need to cache the webpage and compression the files then the website will load things smoothly and quickly

Ok that's great, thanks.

My web host suggests that I don't need to worry about caching or enabling compression on the server unless I'm getting a lot of traffic (which I'm not, yet).

Would you agree with that?

It's really depend on you, rather you want caching or enabling compression code on your website.

Having caching or enabling compression is an option if you want it.
