Websites built and designed for speed - entirely by us

Naturally we have to mention 🙂

We have built our own site from the ground up with the intent of demonstrating an important point.

Some “experts” claim that achieving great speeds for websites built with Page Builders like Elementor is near impossible as the page builders add too much code and use too many resources.

We don’t believe that is true (actually we know it).

If you know what to do and how to do it in the best possible way getting a really fast website using a page builder is possible. is built with:

  • shared hosting (FastCloud Extra plan)
  • WordPress
  • Elementor and Elementor Pro
  • Elementor “Hello Theme” (other lean theme – like GeneratePress or Astra – can achieve similar results)

Other plugins are:

  • All in One WP Security
  • Asset Cleanup
  • Disable Gutenberg
  • Easy Digital Downloads
  • Head and Footer Code
  • Kraken Image Optimizer
  • Ninja Forms
  • UpdraftPlus Backup
  • WP Rocket
  • WP Forms Lite
  • Yoast SEO

So the site is not light with plugins in any way.

So just how fast is ?

Let’s take a look at some scores and some PageSpeed Insights scores (using performance scores on GTMetrix,com

PageSpeed Insights scores test scores on PageSpeed Insights

The numbers pretty much speak for themselves – it really can’t get any better without dedicated hosting at 10-20 times the cost of the shared hosting that the site runs on now!
