I have a joomla site running on rockettheme and have installed google pagespeed on my server and not satisfied with it's performance. I need an expert to finish design of my pages (arrange modules already in the site to their rightful pages and positions on each page), optimize complete site & server for quicker server response time. I am running Parallels Plesk 11.x panel with apache on CentOS. Please respond only if you are confident in successfully fixing my server and focusing on my main site performance.
When I run google pagespeed insights test, I receive the following:
Leverage browser caching
Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
Reduce server response time to under 200ms
In our test, your server responded in 7 seconds. There are many factors that can slow down your server response time. Please read our recommendations to learn how you can monitor and measure where your server is spending the most time.
Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
Your page has 28 blocking script resources and 20 blocking CSS resources.
This project would be an overall performance optimization of my server. Looking for a longterm rockstar to maintain my server.
