Our Australian customers will have noticed a jump in their site performance over the last couple of weeks. This is due to an update to our CDN. This means that your site visitors in Australia are now getting served from a Sydney based data centre. So your EzPz site will load faster than ever in Australia. What about the rest of world? Well, that is still as fast as ever, our CDN data centers are in:
Europe / Middle East / Africa

Over the last couple of months we have been working hard on a major update to EzPz. We wanted to keep things simple and make the interface cleaner, sexier and generally more useful. So, what is being changed? Well, I’m glad you asked:
- Dashboard: Where you get a quick overview of your statistics and site usage including:
- Number of pages viewed
- Storage usage
- Comparision of visitor numbers to previous weeks
- Admin area: The administration area has been given a whole new look
- Statistics: More stats and graphs in an easier to digest layout
- Preview: Now you can check any pages in a variety of sizes. You can see how your site will look in tablets and smartphones and on desktops.
Existing customers will not have to do anything to take advantage of the new version of EzPz. Their site will be automatically upgraded and of-course there are no extra charges for this new version.

This is probably the most important speech tip off them all as it can have the greatest effect on page load speed.
Reduce the number of files in a page.
In upcoming posts we will look at various ways to reduce the number off files within a web page.
You can now add HTML at the click of a button into the WYSIWYG editor in EzPz. This means you can now add things like Paypal buttons and YouTube videos in the editor without having to go into the code. Click the place where you want your HTML to go, click the Add HTML button, paste the code into the box, click insert. Et voila HTML directly added into the editor.
Reduce HTTP calls by combining as many files into one as possible i.e.
- Put all CSS files into one CSS file
- Use CSS Sprites to serve images
