WooCart Review – Is it the best WooCommerce host?

WooCart Hosting Review

In this WooCommerce hosting review, we’ll be testing out WooCart’s Development plan (same resources as the Shop plan) on a WooCommerce-powered store to gauge website performance.

Since we started making themes and plugins for WooCommerce many moons ago, we’ve always spent a lot of time evaluating the best WooCommerce hosting options available so we could make solid recommendations to the thousands of wonderful customers we’ve welcomed over the years.

Our WooCommerce Hosting Guide has captured many of the best WooCommerce hosting recommendations from that research. Our recent WooCommerce hosting reviews are a good place to start if you’d like to see who will feature in the next version of the hosting guide which will be published soon.

As covered in our Nexcess review, the past couple of years have been a wonderful period of rapid innovation and increased competition in the WooCommerce hosting industry. And todays review is a deep dive into one of those very interesting relatively new upstarts that we’ve been keeping an eye on now since prior to their launch called WooCart.

How to Avoid Chaining Critical Requests

How to Avoid Chaining Critical Requests

As a WooCommerce store owner, you don’t want customers to experience poor page load speeds and response times. This causes a poor user experience that leads to visitors bouncing off your website sooner than they had planned to, without seeing your product catalog.

Chaining critical requests can cause slower page load times and poor response times on your web page. All critical resources are being rendered in the same order that’s mentioned in your HTML code. As a result, it can delay the first content rendering on the visitor’s screen depending on the size of the resource and the length of the chain.

How to Defer Offscreen Images in WordPress

As a WooCommerce store owner, you don’t want prospective customers to land on a blank, empty web page that shows no signs of content being rendered on it. This causes a poor user experience that can lead to visitors bouncing off your website.

Since images are the largest, resource-heavy elements on your web pages, optimizing them is a great way to reduce page load times on your site. This is particularly important for eCommerce sites that have lots of images on the main page, shop page, and category pages.

How to Eliminate Render-Blocking Resources

How to Eliminate Render-Blocking Resources

If you run a WooCommerce store, you don’t want visitors landing on your shop page only to be greeted with a blank white screen. This happens when users aren’t able to see any content on your website due to render-blocking issues. They’ll see content when it finishes downloading.

This not only causes visitors to bounce off your website immediately but also makes your website appear to be broken. Most site visitors will only stick around for about 2 seconds waiting for content to show up on their screens. After that, they’ll bounce off and, most likely, never come back.
