    Wondering if the loading times matter for CPA offers matter? Should I use dedicated, VPS or will shared hosting be enough for the tracking program?

    always the time matters... for example if a website loads in 5 seconds most probably you will loose atleast 30% of the visitators. So it's very important to have a good connection to your vps/server.

    ^ No. They have done studies where a page that took 5-10 seconds to load cut conversions by up to 40%.

    Personally, that's insane but it's the truth.

    It's sad but true. I'm using shared hosting and the majority of my leads leave my page during loading time. Try and get a dedicated server.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Will a VPS be enough or will a dedicated server be paramount? Cause dedicated is pretty expensive.

    Loading time is VERY important.

    If someone has to wait 5-10 seconds to see a page they are much less likely to complete the offer than if the page loads in 1-3 seconds.

    I would have never guessed that loading times will be really long on shared hosting.. I never knew 2 seconds would matter lol.

    Loading times is a big factor. I use to think that it did not matter.

    Once I got faster servers with CDN.... conversions improved without doing anything else.

    People are impatient.... they are quick to click away.

    The longer it takes... it gives the impression that something went wrong.

    and they leave your page....

    In fact.... if you think about it.... you do it too... page takes too long... and you leave.

    Yeah, true. Just thought a few seconds wouldn't really matter.. like a second.

    I know what you're saying. I'd leave a page if it were slow, too.
