Performance of a website (page speed, load time, etc) is a critical non-functional requirement. Many research sources demonstrate the importance of fast website experiences for user experience and conversion rate optimisation. With Qala, we have taken a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach to ensuring good performance. This approach includes:

  • Qala’s hosting and infrastructure includes multi-tiered caching and CDN implementation through Cloudflare (optional but highly recommended)
  • Automated optimisation of media (images and video)
  • Performance engineering for the Qala theme
  • Qala core and optional modules to enhance various aspects of performance
  • Attention to a performance practice through developer tools and testing processes
