Improve Site Speed
Website loading speed is of utmost importance. Visitors don’t like a slow website. We have already made the necessary changes in our theme to help your site load faster. Please read the points mentioned below to know how you can improve your website loading speed.
First make sure your hosting supports HTTP/2. Most modern hosting supports HTTP/2 so if you don't find it activated in your hosting then ask your hosting to enable it. For them it takes just 1 minute to activate it. Verify if your site has HTTP/2 enabled from https://tools.keycdn.com/http2-test .
Compress Image with TinyPNG:
You can compress images from TinyPNG website. Visit https://tinypng.com/ and compress all images before uploading them on your website. By this process, you can decrease your website loading time and provide your visitors, a better experience.
.htaccess Code For Better Website Speed: (few hosting might need different set of code)
Please copy and paste the below mentioned code to your .htaccess file (you will find this file on the root folder of your hosting directory) for improved performance of your website.
(N.B.: Please don’t replace any code that already exists on the .htaccess file. It may have serious implications on your website.)

3) Search for “WP Fastest Cache”.
4) Install and activate the plugin.

We haven't used any special plugin or didn't use any trick to make our demos look fast. We have kept them natural so that you can get real idea. We recommend using siteground.com for hosting. We have seen sites using siteground.com have decent speed in desktop and mobile. Most of our demos have page speed score in 90s (checked in GTmetrix) so if you use recommended setup then after demo import your site should have such speed.
