Images take 1.2 MB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 277.0 kB
    • After minification 273.0 kB
    • After compression 38.6 kB

    HTML optimization

    • After minification 885.5 kB
    • After compression 286.8 kB

    • Original 377.0 kB
    • After minification 315.2 kB
    • After compression 77.0 kB

    CSS optimization

    CSS files minification is very important to reduce a web page rendering time. The faster CSS files can load, the earlier a page can be rendered. Istart.co.nz needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 300.0 kB or 80% of the original size.
