Magento can proudly boast of being the MOST popular CMS for ecommerce and is equally suitable for both small and large e-commerce companies.

Magento grows with your business, regardless of any e commerce features or enhancements that you may want to use within your store. In short, you can use it in any manner you like!

Having said that, just having Magento as your basic e-store platform is NOT enough. The qualities that it offers, has to be maintained too.

You may have experienced slow performance symptoms like – same data getting loaded multiple number of times or insufficient memory usage or maybe redundant data utilization etc.

It is extremely important to keep a track on what restricts Magento from performing optimally. And there are various factors that can account for the same.

Magento’s sluggishness can also be reduced by regularly monitoring the web performance and applying smart tips such as full page caching, limiting the products on the overview page, making a W3C compliant store or enhancing the web pages.

Applying value-adds to your store such as – upgrading Magento, optimizing the content and images, adding extensions, using strong security passwords etc. can also make a huge impact on your overall store performance.
