I'm planning to open a store in Europe or the US. How will it impact my store's loading speed?

Your online store is expected to exhibit excellent loading speed. The servers, which use Amazon's cloud services, are located in the western United States. For merchants and customers in the US or Europe, there may be a slight time difference when accessing the website depending on their geographical location. However, this impact is negligible, and measures have been put in place to optimize this:

  • A service named Cloudflare is used for merchant store domain names. This service increases the speed and reliability when the store is accessed from overseas.
  • A technology called Content Delivery Network (CDN) is also deployed to enhance store access. This stores website data on servers nearest to the user, minimizing internet lag and congestion, improving the user experience, and ensuring users worldwide enjoy seamless access.

It's essential to note, however, that the speed of page loading is also dependent on the volume of content on the page. Elements such as images, videos, and plug-ins can influence the website's access speed. While high-quality images or videos can elevate the website's visual appeal, an excess of these can affect the page's loading performance. Finding a balance between the volume of content and the page's loading time is important, with the aim being to use the minimal amount of page elements to yield the best loading results.
