In its simplest form e-commerce is the buying and selling of products and services by businesses and consumers over the Internet. People use the term “e-commerce” to describe encrypted payments on the Internet.
Sometimes these transactions include the real-time transfer of funds from buyer to seller and sometimes this is handled manually through an eft-pos terminal once a secure order is received by the merchant.
Internet sales are increasing rapidly as consumers take advantage of lower prices offer by wholesalers retailing their products. This trend is set to strengthen as web sites address consumer security and privacy concerns.
E-commerce can provide the following benefits over non-electronic commerce:
Simple, ask Google. Go to Google Page Speed Online.
Remember, this tool measures pages, not entire websites. So, test and optimize each page (or the important and most visited ones) separately.
Google Page Speed also has feature to test your site for mobile devices. With more and more users using internet from their handheld devices, having slower internet connection, you cannot afford to ignore that.
Note : The Steps to increase the Page Speed listed here are for WordPress Sites only.
Use Google Page Speed to analyse your page speed. We will analyse the Page Speed regularly. Please Note sometimes after we do the changes, the Page Speed is not imediately affected. You might have to wait for few minutes to see the change.
Now, to increase Page Speed, first of all I refered a Guide on WP Tuts + : The Ultimate Quickstart Guide to Speeding Up Your WordPress Site. The Major difference that I saw in my Page Speed is due to this guide. I am listing the steps provided in that guide here for your easy reference
If you are using any other caching plugin , Please deactivate it!
Head over to your “Add new” plugins section within the WordPress, search “W3 Total Cache” , install it and activate it
Once W3 Total Cache is switched on you will see a new sidebar tab called “Performance”, click it.
Let’s first look at the “General Settings”, you will want to tick the following boxes (to enable):
However for CSS you can pretty safely select all of them. Now this isn’t an exact science as this is minifying your theme files (Don’t worry it’s non destructive) and there are alot of different themes all employing a wide range of different files, plugins and functions. Basically preview your changes before submitting them.
Minify is one of the biggest improvements you will be integrating, once you have selected all your files (and done the same with every theme, if you are using more than one) then click “Apply & close”, directly followed by “Save all settings” (Deploy it if your site still looks/works the same).
Once your in the “Browser Cache” tab/page you will need to change the “Expires header lifetime” to 691200 seconds. This will immediately boost your ySlow score.
Now head back to “General Settings” and click “empty all caches”, then go to your homepage and run the ySlow test again, you should see a nice improvement.
In the Same tutorial, I also followed the Step 3: Let’s get back to that pesky Database optimization.
You will need to Install and Activate WP-DBmanager
Below the “Performance” sidebar tab in the WordPress backend there should be another tab with the name “Database” (if not then go back and activate it).
Now this is very simple you need to do three things, backup, repair, optimize.
To backup click the “Backup DB” then at the bottom click “Backup” (Don’t worry about gzipping).
Next up we want to repair your database (just incase) so go to the “Repair DB” in the sidebar. Click the “Repair” button at the bottom.
Lastly, optimize it. Click the “Optimize DB” sidebar button & yep you’ve guessed it, click the “Optimize” button at the bottom.
To avoid this process again pop into the “DB Options” sidebar tab. At the bottom there will be an “Automatic Scheduling” section. Ensure that backups are done EVERY DAY (you can’t be too careful) then set it to optimize say every few days and repair once a week. Then save the changes.
Large Images really slows done your site. Lossless Compression can come to rescue. I used Image Compressor 2008
However, there are many other good compressors available that you can use.
This Step is from another Great Guide How to Leverage Browser Caching in WordPress via htacces
Open up your htacces file and paste in the following directives at the top of the file:
## EXPIRES CACHING ##
ExpiresActive OnExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
ExpiresDefault "access 2 days"
## EXPIRES CACHING ##
This covers pretty much everything…. Now is the time to check the Score.
Dont Forget to reply below with the change in speed you observed in your site
What do you need for a website? The following is an overview of what you will need to create a website that includes five components and a brief explanation of website basics for creating a website.
Before you start working on the actual design of your website , you need to plan first. You will need to determine your Internet objectives and who your audience is.
The types of websites you may consider include:
An informational website is similar to an online business brochure. The objective of this type of site is to offer business information including the “who, what, where, when and how” of your business or organization.
An e-commerce website is for those who would like to sell products including goods or services online. This type of site displays products and provides the ability to complete the purchase transaction online.
A domain name is an Internet address used on the World Wide Web to locate your website. One does not actually own a domain name as annual fees provide the “right” to use it. Annual fees vary for this privilege depending on the company providing the services and the domain name extension requested. When choosing a name it is important to choose a name that others can remember easily.

Web hosting is the actual “housing” where a website is stored. This process may be thought of as the apartment or office that is rented in a large building where the site is conducting business.
When the website is complete, a marketing plan to promote the website should be devised. Website marketing and promotion fees are separate and in addition to domain name fees, web design and development fees and hosting fees. The following are two website marketing considerations:
Includes site submission to the major directories and search engines. Directories include: The Open Directory Project and Yahoo!
For those who desire an aggressive promotion and marketing strategy, PPC or Pay Per Click marketing options include Google Adwords and Yahoo!’s site submit.
Keeping your website fresh with current information is an absolute necessity to portray a professional image to your Internet audience. Ensuring that your site is current and relevant is just as important as initially creating the site. You will need to determine who is going to perform the changes and updates to your site. If you anticipate ongoing edits, you may want to consider a cost effective web maintenance agreement. Fees for web maintenance are separate and in addition to web design, domain names, web hosting and promotion.
Your domain name is the center of your Internet identity. Here is a list of things you should keep consideration when choosing the name that will represent you on the Web.
Short domain names are always easier to remember and spell. Try to register the shortest name that your customers and visitors will associate with your Website. The general rule of thumb is, keep it under ten characters if possible. (Not including the suffix.)
There are many different extensions available right now. For businesses, we recommend a .com suffix. It is the first extension that most people try when searching for a Website.
You must register soon unless you want to get stuck with “the-domain-name-that-no-one-wanted.net”. Just get out there and register before you lose the opportunity to get the name you really want.
You can protect your brand by registering several similar domain names. If you have “yourname.com”, register “yourname.net” so no one else takes it. You can register your full company name and a shorter, easier to remember version. Some people even register common misspellings of their company’s name. You can then direct all these domain name to the domain name where you actually host your site.
Companies have been known to sue Web site owners for violation of copyright and trademark. So be very careful if you try to confront an existing business. Make sure you register a domain name in good faith, and think about the possibilities and connections that may exist between you and the business to another.
Domain names can only use letters, numbers, and dashes. Spaces and symbols are not allowed. Also, domain names are not case sensitive, mydomain.com is the same as MyDomain.com
Although hyphens “-“are allowed in a domain name, try to avoid them. A domain name with a hyphen is difficult to remember.
When you have settled on several available name choices, see what your friends and clients have to say. A name that may make perfect sense to you may be too hard for other people to remember.
And remember; if you think that if you have found the right domain name, but you’re not quite sure if it’s the one… register it anyway before someone else does!
