Google says that if your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, you will lose half of your visitors because they don’t want to wait (do you?).

Thai Web Speed Test

Thai web speed test is the best way for you to check how fast your website is. This tool was originally developed by AOL and was open-sourced since 2008. Why is this one so special? Usually when you want to test your web speed, you need to go to speed test websites. Most of them are outside of Thailand so the result you get is not correct 100% but this website (thaiwebspeed) is located here so you will get more accurate result. So let’s get started!

 

1.Open your browser and go to https://thaiwebspeed.com

2.Type in your website at “Enter a Website URL”

3.Then click “Start Test”

4.Wait for your result

When the test is done you will see the performance result. The “summary” section is where you should look. It tells you how fast your website is.
