Pankaj was really determined to have the fastest site possible and immediately noticed Johnny as a knowledgeable speed expert in the Facebook groups. Like Johnny, he was also a total speed addict and willing to optimize for even tiny 50ms gains. He chose a custom managed hosting plan with JVPS to fit his 4 growing sites and the rest was history.
The goal was simple. Load as fast as possible. Instant load on desktop, and instant load on mobile. Users were spread all over the world, so we needed fast load times to everywhere! Due to his high-number of posts, we had to configure caching for his site a little differently. After migration, initial speed-up, and then several months of tweaks…we arrived at our current solution…a blazing fast site that easily handles over 2,000 simultaneous users during peak hours without any slowdowns. Load times dropped all across the board and everything working super smooth.
Another friend made and happy customer for life. To this day, JournalDev is still being speed-tweaked from time to time with our latest “ideas”. Like I said…we’re speed addicts. 🙂
For those wondering, the image up above was JournalDev’s old design. They’ve since grown and recoded a much sleeker, sexier, new design for the site. We’re happy to still be with them after all these years and still tackling the latest challenges that comes with success. Server bombardment during browser push notifications, random SSL issues, server weirdness, and more. We’ve been through it all and will go through hell for a client like this.
