If you have a store with large no of products and categories then I am sure that you are facing issue with website speed.

To increase Massive speed you have to some database level changes.

You have to inactive unnecessary entry in database like product / categories count in header. Use indexing in your database.

If you are using lots of images for every product then use different domain for images, you can create one sub domain example then u got edit config.php at public html and also config.php at admin folder.

define(‘HTTP_IMAGE’, ‘’); or

define(‘HTTPS_IMAGE’, ‘’);

enable Content compression mode.
Add Expires headers
Compress all external link

There is lots of other technique use by professional OpenCart Development Company. You can also take a support from this company

if you really have so many product images, maybe you should consider CDN support ,especially multi-domain CDN, which can improve the loading speed greatly.

recently i create an general CDN solution for opencart, which also support multi-domain CDN. you can get more details from this topic: ... 19#p467919
