Better user experience
Your customers won’t wait around for a slow site. Keep your visitors happy with a fast, responsive WordPress website.
Improved conversion rates
A faster site means more sales – it’s that simple. Increased load times have been proven to increase conversions and revenue.
Climb the search engines
Site speed is now a Google search ranking factor, so a faster WordPress site can help further improve your ranking in Google.
How we make your WordPress site faster
Optimise your images
Dramatically reduce the load time and overall file size of your site by loading bandwidth-saving compressed images.
Leverage browser caching so repeat visitors load your site data from their local cache, instead of your live site.
Add expires headers
We add “expiries headers” which tell your visitor’s web browser when to load content from the server or the browser cache.
Do I need to speed up my site?
We’ll never try to TuneUp a site that doesn’t need it, so we recommend testing your site using GTmetrix, the same tool we use.
Your site could benefit from a TuneUp if your report matches any of the following results…
- PageSpeed score C or lower
- YSlow score C or lower
- Load time 6 seconds or higher
- Requests 70 or higher
If we do not improve all these metrics, you’ll get you money back in full – you won’t even have to ask.Test your site speed now

Frequently asked questions about our WordPress TuneUp service
Exactly how much faster will my site be?
What are Google PageSpeed and YSlow scores?
Both PageSpeed and YSlow are performance reports for web pages. We use GTmetrix to run these tests simultaneously.
Google’s PageSpeed Insights analyses your web page and gives a score which demonstrates how well a page / site follows common performance best practices – in short, does your site do the things it should to maximise load speed? The report works on a score from 0-100% (with an additional F to A score). Generally a poorly optimised site would score below 59, whilst a good site would score 80 and above.
Yslow is another industry-standard website speed reporting tool. It’s very similar to PageSpeed in that it analyses and reports back on your site speed, however it uses slightly different calculations for it scores, and weights the various factors impacting your speed differently. Again, the scoring system is percentage based, with an additional F to A score.
We believe that combining these tools in our reporting and increasing both scores is the best way to demonstrate an accurate, real-life improvement to you website speed.
Please note that GTmetrix PageSpeed scores may sometimes be a little different from the scores you may get at the official PageSpeed site. This article explains why.
How long will the process take?
We aim to complete your TuneUp, with a report, within 48 hours (if not quicker). If we cannot meet this expectation we’ll be sure to communicate the progress with you daily.
I don’t host with you, can you TuneUp my WordPress website?
Currently we can only offer the TuneUp service for WordPress sites hosted on our quantum hosting platform at LCN. We do offer a free migration service if you wanted to move your site to us – it’s quick and painless.
I host with you, but my website doesn’t use WordPress, can you TuneUp up my site?
Sorry, we can only offer this service on LCN hosted WordPress sites.
