Online sales figures are incredibly sensitive to a site's loading speed. This is why we have an optimised CloudVPS Image for Magento available. With the help of this product we currently host a large number of quick web shops in our cloud.
For Magento and Joomla optimalisation we have partnered with Jira ICT, the number one Magento trainer and consultant in the Netherlands. After your shop is placed on the virtual server Jira will perform a free, one hour, optimalisation.
The site examenklacht.nl ('exam complaint') of the Landelijk Aktie Komitee Scholieren (LAKS) has seen a lot of traffic lately. LAKS is the Dutch national action committee representing high school students. On the site examenklacht.nl students can get information about their high school exams and lodge complaints. The site is also the first site to publish Dutch exam results so the site tends to get swamped with visitors when that data comes in.
The site was actually unreachable a for a period of time on Thursday the 17th when 20,000 students tried to reach exam results at the same time. The examenklacht.nl site is located on a Windows virtual server. Below you can see the CPU graph of this VPS.
