Shin Rental Server is the fastest server in Japan.
Shinn Rental Server is aThe fastest rental server in Japan with performance beyond that of X server.It is the most advanced server in the world. We use the latest technology without hesitation, which is not available in other rental servers.
For more details, please see the following explanatory article.
Some of the technologies that have not yet been introduced in X server have been introduced in Thin Server ahead of others.
In other words, if you are using a thin rental server and it is "slow", it is unlikely that there is a problem on the server side.
Causes of slow Thin Server rentals
One possibility is that the website you are running is overloaded or overwhelmed by the scripts you are running.
If you are using it beyond the normal use case, it will put a strong load on the server.
There are also several other possible causes of slow WordPress sites running on thin rental servers.
So, in this article, we will explore the causes of each one and solve them from the root.
My Thin Server Rental is Slow! 9 Tips to Speed It Up
I will now explain nine specific improvements that can be made to speed up your Thin Server rental.
Check each one and try to improve it.
1) Use an X accelerator.
Shin Rental Server has introduced a feature called X-Accelerator.
What is an X accelerator?A unique feature that allows you to easily speed up and stabilize the speed of your website without complicated settings.It is.
Specifically, it speeds up the loading speed by remembering pages and contents that have been displayed once. Simply put, it is a cache server.
This X-accelerator is especially effective for pages with a lot of access. For example, if you have more than a certain number of accesses to your website's articles and pages, you can dramatically speed up the speed just by installing it.
This X-accelerator is available for all plans of Thin Client. It is simple to set up. Please activate it.
How to set up the X accelerator
First, go to the Thin Server administration page and click on Accelerate >> X Accelerate.
Next, select the domain where you want to implement the X accelerator and click "Select".
Next, choose from the X accelerator settings. Then click "Proceed to Confirmation Screen".
By following this procedure, you can install the X accelerator.
2) Turn on the server cache setting.
You can also set up a thin rental server by using theServer Cache SettingsYou may be able to speed up the process by doing the following
The server cache setting is to remember all the files on your website so that you don't have to generate new data.
As a result, the pages that have been displayed in the past can be displayed at a higher speed. This is also essential for SEO, as it increases the speed of the page display.
This server cache function also only needs to be set up once. After that, just leave it alone and the server cache function will work automatically.
How to configure the server cache function
First, go to the Thin Server administration page and click Speedup >> Server Cache Settings.
Next, select the domain for which you want to implement the server cache function.
Specify "Turn ON" the server cache function, and proceed to the confirmation screen.
By following this procedure, the server cache function will be enabled.
3) Turn on the browser cache setting.
The Thin Server is available inBrowser cache functionis also available. When this setting is enabled, the browser's cache will be used for display.
For example, if the site is accessed using Google Chrome, the cache that exists in Chrome can be used to display the site.
Since there is no need to access the server each time to load the data, the display speed of the site will be faster.
This browser cache feature can be enabled with a single touch from the Thin Client Management screen.
You can improve the display speed of your site just by using this setting.
How to set the browser cache function
From the administration page, click Speedup >> Browser Cache Settings.
Select the domain for which you want to use the browser cache settings.
Turn on the browser cache setting. If in doubt, we recommend using the recommended settings.
4) Compress and optimize the image.
Do you have a lot of images in your posts on your WordPress site? Actually, the use of images often slows down the display speed.
If you use a lot of images, you should definitely use image compression.
By compressing the file size of images (PNG, JPEG, etc.) in WordPress.The display speed will be greatly improved.
Image compression is the process of reducing the amount of data in an image file by removing unnecessary data that a person cannot see with the naked eye.
The simple explanation is that you can reduce the size of an image without changing its appearance. By compressing the images, you can improve the display speed of your site.
How to compress images in WordPress
This section explains the actual method of image compression on this site. In my caseImage compression plug-in "ShortPixelI am using the
By using SHortPixel, you can reduce the size of the image file. See the image below.
We cut the data size of a single image file by 88%. With image compression, the file size can be reduced to this level.
However, the image quality has not degraded as seen by the naked eye.
Thus, by using ShortPixel, you can cut down the amount of extra data while maintaining high image quality.
You can also use it for free. For detailed usage and explanationThis articleI wrote to
5) Increase the version of PHP.
The display speed of WordPress is slow. In such a case, upgrading PHP will help speed up the display speed.
If you are currently using an older version of PHP on your Thin Server, we recommend upgrading.
What is PHP?
This is a simple explanation of PHP, the program that is essential for WordPress to work.
This PHP will be upgraded. If you are using an older version
- Slower processing speed
- The site has a problem.
- Security will be weakened.
This is a risk that can occur. Therefore, upgrading PHP is important for running a WordPress site with peace of mind.
Of course, most users of Thin Server have already applied the recommended version of PHP, so there should be no need to upgrade.
Check the PHP version with your thin rental server just once.
Click PHP >> Switch PHP ver in the admin panel.
Select the domain you want to upgrade PHP to.
You can change the PHP version. We recommend that you use the PHP version recommended by Thin Client.
5) Change the WordPress theme.
Over the past few years, the number of highly functional WordPress themes has increased dramatically. Even free themes have become as functional as paid themes.
If you're using a feature-rich WordPress theme, there's something you should know. It's "more features = slower site". This is not a general rule. However, the more features a theme is loaded with, the slower it tends to be.
The WordPress theme I used in the past, X (X), was an extremely functional and user-friendly theme that could be used for a variety of purposes. However, it was too heavyweight.
Even if a WordPress theme is described as "SEO optimized."If the display speed is slow, all SEO efforts are useless.The speed of your site is the most important factor. Site display speed should be a priority for SEO above all else.
It's easy to measure the weight of a WordPress theme; try switching to a different WordPress theme once and see if the speed changes.Google PageSpeed InsightsLet's measure it with
If the display speed increases after changing the WordPress theme, it is a "hit".

6) Organize and delete WordPress plugins.
If you do a Google search for "WordPress plugin recommendations," you will find many articles that introduce useful plugins.
However, adding WordPress plugins as you are told will always slow down the display speed of your site.
Therefore, if your WordPress site is displaying slowly, one of the best things you can do is to review the plugins you have installed.
Using the WordPress plugin P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler), it is possible to measure how much load each installed plugin is putting on your site.
Uninstalling plug-ins that are particularly demanding will improve the display speed of your site.
If changing the server settings does not improve the situation, review your WordPress plugins.
The danger of adding too many WordPress plugins isThis articleI explained it in Please take a look.
7) Disable web fonts.
Many website operators use web fonts to change their site design.
Just changing the font can make a big difference in the impression of your site. However.A font file is a fairly large data size.As a result, there are many cases where it takes a long time for the page to load.
The Japanese fonts provided by Shin Rental Server have been optimized. Therefore, if you are using the Japanese font function of the thin rental server, you will not be affected so much.
Please be careful when you install your own Google Font or your own fonts outside of thin rental servers.
If you use your own Web fonts, be sure to subset them (i.e., extract only the most frequently used fonts to make them lighter). Even with subsetting, the file size will probably be quite large.
If possible, try not to use web fonts.Of course, it is at your own discretion. If your priority is design, it is desirable to use fonts. If your priority is speed, don't use fonts.
By the way, since this site originally uses many heavy plug-ins, we do not use web fonts in order not to slow down the display speed of the site any more.
8) Perform virus/malware diagnosis.
It's a true story that sounds like a lie, but in the past, my site had been infiltrated by malware. One day, I noticed that my site was displaying slowly.
It's a lightweight website with few images. I wonder why."
When I searched inside with FTP software, I found that it had been successfully infiltrated by malware. You had generated a large number of pages in English.
At that time, I was using a different rental server.Thin Server is a fully secured server.It is not easy to get a virus or malware. It is unlikely that you will suffer from a virus or malware invasion easily.
However, security doesn't mean anything if you brought in the virus yourself. If you have brought foreign files to your server or changed your settings in the last few days or weeks, you should take a look at the possibility of malware.
If it comes to mind or if you can determine that it is unlikely, you can pass it by.
How to set the security function
From the Thin Client server, click Security >> WAF Settings.
Select the domain for which you want to check the security.
From the WAF settings, turn on the items.
9) (If still no improvement) Change the plan.
The performance of Thin Server Rental can also be increased by upgrading the plan. Therefore, if your site display speed does not improve with the methods explained so far, you need to consider changing your plan.
However, there is one caveat.Shin Rental Server claims to be the "fastest" server in Japan, and even the cheapest basic plan is quite powerful.Most websites will benefit from the higher speed even with the basic plan.
(If your website is very heavyweight, it will also be slower.)
Before you change your plan, first try to identify the root cause of the slowness you are experiencing with Thin Server Rental.
Since we don't know the cause.The same problem will occur if you migrate to another company's rental server.This is because the speed of Thin Server is one of the fastest in the country. In other words, you can assume that there are other causes, not the server settings.
Moving the site to another company will most likely not improve the situation.
Let's take a look at it.
