Need help - dns lookups & expire headers

#1

Hey Guys!

I’ve just launched a new ecommerce shop for Los Angeles based designer B. James. I’m currently running my speed tests to better enhance user experiences and scoring relatively low on a couple main areas.

Expire Headers
and Reducing DNS lookups

How can I attack these issues and speed up the website a bit. I’m currently loading 22 mbs in just under 3 seconds. I’m sure I can get that down even further…

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Jonathan

I like where you’re going with this and my first impression was a luxury clothing company and here’s some suggestions:

  • Nav Menu is different on certain pages, navigate to lookbook and about to notice the menu position. Also menu size on scroll is different on some pages

  • Your margins and padding aren’t fluid / looks like it was eyeballed

  • Most images have no alt tag [helps SEO + People with Disabilities]

  • At the footer under Policies none of those links go anywhere

  • No privacy policy so I assume you’re selling my data

  • Your contact form has no captcha / guard

Overall like the style just some basic stuff above / stuff you where probably already going to do
