Magento is one of the most popular e-commerce platforms in use today, evolving over the years into a feature-rich e-commerce solution. Despite other “plug and play” platforms such as Shopify and Woocommerce, Magento remains the number 1 choice for most startups as it comes packaged with all the essential tools needed to build an e-commerce store. It is the most robust, most flexible, and the best performance oriented alternative out there. However, one of the issues common amongst users and developers is that it’s slow. Which is surprising given that Magento is described as a fast and reliable platform. Maybe it’s time we listen to the users and our customers, analyse their Magento installations, identify causes and provide solutions.


Believe it or not, Magento out of the box is a very robust platform with a high level of functionality. The community behind Magento ensures that it remains up-to-date and bug-free, without compromising the speed, reliability and security. It is highly scalable, meaning it’s flexible enough to grow with your business. Magento performance degradation is usually due to malpractices, misconfiguration or integrating extensions and plugins without first checking compatibility.
