Umar's Review

After launching our new website, we noticed slow load times, which were affecting our sales and search engine optimization. After performing quite a few optimisations on our store, we concluded that our host provider was a huge stumbling block and was just not built for WooCommerce shops, especially for an online print shop like ours.

We looked at other "woocommerce hosting" providers who promised fast servers tailor-made for WooCommerce stores, but this did not improve performance.

This is where WooCart came into the picture. Dejan and the team dedicate their service to Woocommerce stores only. I was skeptical that this would not work for us given our previous experience, but Dejan assured me that speeds could be increased massively and that we could try them for seven days without any obligation. Thinking there was nothing to lose, we decided to give them a go.

WooCart optimized their servers specifically to our needs and even fixed issues on our website to ensure fast speeds were met. We went from over 8 second load time to under a second and have not looked back since. Since we have moved, we have noticed an increase in our rankings in Google. They are always updating their servers with new features and offer a free CDN service. These guys know what they are doing, and their support is excellent. I have found that they are always helpful even if it is not host related.

Transfer Details

Besides transferring the store, we also cleaned up the files which included leftovers from a Sendy installation. At the same time we optimized the database.

After everything was finished, we were all very happy with a significant decrease in page load of 77%.
