Improve performance rating for all sites by updating server headings [IT]

When we ran the standard Luminate pages through the performance evaluator we consistently get a letter D, regardless of the weight of the page.

The following issues are reported as the ones causing the low grade:

  1. Make fewer HTTP requests
  2. Compress components with gzip
  3. Use cookie-free domains
  4. Add Expires headers

So our request is that Blackbaud updates the server to address at least some of these issues. Outlining them in perceived order of feasibility.

  1. Compress components with gzip. I think the server setting can be changed easily to ensure that all js/css/image assets are sent compressed, thus reducing page weight.
  2. Add Expires headers. I believe this can also be set easily on the global server settings.
  3. Make fewer HTTP requests. There are a number of standard JS files that are loaded on each page. Is it possible that all these files are combined into one and loaded once. I think this may require a product update.
  4. Use cookie-free domains. Is it possible to have an aliased version of the domain pointing to the client sites, so the assets can be referenced at this domain, which would not be a cookie domain, thus improving asset load performance?
