LiteSpeed Server Architecture & Flat Cached Databases

Lightning Fast Page Loads

A recent study of > 5 million sites (https://backlinko.com/page-speed-stats) determined the average "TIME-TO-INTERACTIVE" speed for websites is 10.2 seconds.  DISTiMan pages have been tested to pull up in < 3 seconds for up to 500,000 parts. We achieve this speed by utilizing a cached flat database structure with our advanced hosting architecture combined with our optional "Cloud Army" compression software and Sucuri Content Delivery Network.
 
For every one second you reduce page load speed, transaction rates increase 10-20% (studies by Amazon & Walmart).  Typical website infrastructure and hosting could be responsible for destroying your traffic and transaction rates.

Speed Affects on Usability

Reducing Bounce Rate

People like to use faster sites. They feel more comfortable transacting on faster sites. They browse deeper and Dwell on pages longer.  So if you want more downloads, sample requests, quotation requests and online purchases, then our speed is a major factor to consider.  A DISTiMAN site being 1-2 seconds faster than the industry giants, should Improve transaction rates by 10-40%.

SEO & Crawl Budgets

Search Engines allot a fixed amount of time to crawl your site.  A DISTiMAN site with 3 second page loads means that search engines can crawl and index >3 times the content pages than a typical website averaging 10.2 second page loads.  This greatly affects SEO factors for both Depth and Quality of Content.

LiteSpeed Server & Flat Cached Database Structure

Typical catalog / e-commerce sites rely on Relational databases, at the cost of page load speeds. This means that for every field requiring relating to a part requires a separate lookup when compiling the page.  When you have 100 parts, this may not be an issue, but when you have thousands or more, page load speeds can come to a crawl.
DISTiMAN is qualified to manage up to 50 million parts at lightning speeds.  We do use relational databases for content flexibility, but our system transforms caches these into flat / single-row databases. This cached structure combined with our LiteSpeed servers achieves lightning fast page loads without sacrificing design flexibility and usability unlike most other website platforms.

Optional Cloud Army & Sucuri Content Delivery Network

Content Delivery Network
When even faster speeds are required, we offer performance that is typically reserved for the likes of Amazon typically requiring substantial investments and ongoing costs.
 
Our optional Cloud Army software compresses images, scripts, and css prior to hosting on Sucuri CDN. Visitors retrieve locally cached and compressed versions of pages from Sucuri's global server network, typically increasing page load speeds by another 30%.

LiteSpeed Server & Flat Cached Database Structure

Relational databases improve usability at the cost of page load speeds. Every field requiring a unique lookup so one part with 10 fields would require 11 lookups.  Then repeat for  100 parts? 1,000? 10,000? Typical sites are often crippled when their databases exceed >5,000 parts. 

DISTiMAN is qualified to manage up to 50 million parts at lightning speeds.  We use relational databses to gain design flexibility, but transform them into single-row databases that are cached. This DB structure combined with our LiteSpeed server infrastructure achieves lightning fast page loads without sacrificing ease design and usability.
