How to improve the prestashop site speed and reduce the server load

Good advise from our customer

I had also a speed problem with prestashop in general. The SOLUTION: Move to a host and work only on Linux, don't use any CPanels. CPancels appeared to slow down the website a lot. Check my page for speed. or

Promokit Team don't recommend you to refuse of the CPanel. because ti has a lot of helpful tools for not-advanced server users. But if for you site speed is extremely important you can try to test the site speed without CPanel.
