Speed is the ultimate experience metric now. More than design brilliance, an average person online expects efficiency and speed. Most top websites are frequented often because they offer a fast and reliable experience to visitors.
The obsession with speed comes from general progression in the world of website speed. We’ve come a long way from the days of 2G internet and dial-up modems. The expectation for website and app speed is higher than it has ever been. This is a big reason companies try a lot of things to enhance speed.
Website speed is now a ranking factor for app performance as well. Tools like AppMySite basically allow you to leverage your website to create an app without coding. Since these tools use your website to make an app, they also rely on its speed to power the app as well.
In other words, good website speed leads to good app speed as well.
There are many effective ways you can improve website speed. The most direct and simplest way of doing this is getting a super-fast web host.
Importance of hosting in enhancing website speed
However, most of these measures are incremental. They don’t radically change website performance or create a framework for high performance.
More than anything, your website speed depends on your web host. A good web host will ensure your website performs optimally and provides a sound experience to incoming users.
Companies often try to compromise when it comes to selecting a web host for their website. This is typically an exercise in cost saving.
It is not right to fault companies for trying to save money. However, any compromise they make should not harm the website and the brand associated with it. This is especially true for those using DIY app making solutions like AppMySite.
Anyone using an app creator online to make an app cannot afford to make a bad compromise when selecting a web host. This is because a bad compromise would harm both website and app speed in the long run.
AppMySite recently launched the WordPress web hosting add-on to stop users from compromising on their web host. The following sections will discuss the essential attributes of the new add-on and how you can improve your website & app speed with it.
The WordPress web hosting add-on
The new WordPress web hosting add-on basically enables AppMySite users to migrate their website to WP Engine, a highly regarded WordPress web host. The entire migration process will be handled by our support team at AppMySite.
WP Engine is a very reliable web hosting partner serving 90K customers in over 140 countries. It provides reliable and fast WordPress experiences that meet the current industry standards.
Hosting your website on WP Engine will naturally supercharge your app speed as well. Thus, you can solve performance issues of both your WordPress website and mobile app with one add-on.

Why is this add-on important?
53% of users abandon an app if it takes more than three seconds to load.
Three seconds is not a lot. A slow app speed will effectively set you up to lose more than half your app users.
