HTTP Request and HTTP Connection
How to reduce HTTP Request to a web server
There are many ways by which you can improve website loading time by reducing the number of HTTP Connections to web server. Some of them are
- As most web server can make 1-2 simultaneous HTTP Connection it would be a good idea to distribute load to other web servers. You can put the logo, background pattern (marked as 1 and 2 in above image) and other images used for designing to image sharing sites like Picasa and Flickr. Only load the website content from your web server. By doing so you can reduce HTTP Requests amazingly.
- Faster and more efficient web server can also make your website load faster. Choose one which can process more than 2 simultaneous HTTP Connections. Such server would be costly, that’s evident.
