Magento is an open source e-commerce platform developed using PHP. It has several advantages such as easy to use design templates, third party google services, SEO features and more. However one of its biggest advantages is that it is easy to deploy and almost any enterprise whether big or small can have their ecommerce platform up and running in no time. However in spite of these humongous advantages, Magneto has a strategic limitation which is slow page loading speed.
Any one who uses the internet is aware that page loading speed is the decisive factor which makes us leave the page within the first few seconds of arriving on it. In fact research suggests that nearly half of web users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less, and they tend to abandon a site that isn’t loaded within 3 seconds. Several magento using E commerce websites have found their page abandonment rate go up due to the slow page loading arising out of Magento’s inherent limitations.
Though there are several suggested ways to speed up Magento, none are known to have completely eradicated the problem of slow page speed. In such a scenario many users consider migrating to some other Ecommerce platform such as Shopify and Woocommerce. However due to excessive use of customization features almost all these platforms face similar challenges. Thus rather than choosing from any of these open source ecommerce platform many enterprises have found it extremely beneficial to use tailored Golang Ecommerce Platform. Some of the benefits that a Golang based Ecommerce platform offers are:
Websites developed using Golang have one distinct feature which is Speed. Golang based Ecommerce sites run without the need for a database or dependencies on expensive runtimes like Ruby, Python, or PHP. Due to this page load time is significantly lowered. Golang typically boast of extremely fast build times amounting to even less than 1 ms per page.
Due to Golangs cross platform support; Golang web applications run smoothly across almost all devices. This reduces the page load time significantly too and enhances user retention.
Bugs often lead to a poor website user experience. Golang code requires every variable to be associated with a type. This forcibly makes the developer pay close attention to the code thus reducing eventual time and cost expenditure on debugging.
If your Ecommerce Magento website has been affecting user experience it is possibly time for you to consider migrating from PHP to Golang. To know more about how this can be done you can drop us a message here.
