Hey wix folks.
First of all, I think you're doing an amazing job in giving us these easy-to-use design tools, while still providing us with the ability to - here and there - put in some custom behavior in code. This was one of the key factors which led me to believe that it is finally possible to move up a layer when it comes to building websites (less coding/less errors/less reinventing the wheel, more time for impactfull stuff).
I'm working with wix for about 2 months now and I'm still convinced. The issue with the loading time was always visible to me, but I hoped it will be better ones the site is moved to a premium package.
Sadly, this was not the case. It would be awesome if you could give an insight into the following observations (calls are sent from western Europe):
- I created an empty landing page on my site. This means no code, no images, no text, only a white background.
- Accessing this published page takes about 3.5 sec on average (this is reproducible).
You can see more details in a representative result from webpagetest.org (blue line = document complete)
As a (not web!) programmer myself this performance issue really bothers me, because I want to deliver a product that surprises positively in every aspect.
Since this data comes from accessing an empty page, I do not have much hope for any improvements on the user side, or are there some settings I'm not aware of? How about on your side?
I know that there are other questions about the issue of performance, but I hoped to get a detailed answer to how this problem is currently treated within the wix walls:
- Are you aware of it?
- Are you working on it?
- Do you have an ETA?
- Do you have any tips for us?
