Uncover insights with Magento Audit
Make your store work like never before with Magento Audit
Magento is a widely used e-commerce platform with various built-in features and customization opportunities. It is the perfect CMS for creating any webstore, custom built for every size and purpose. Using Magento will give your business the advantage it needs to grow and move to the next level. Making progress isn’t possible without analyzing the present status of your webstore. Our analysis covers all spheres of webstore performance.
Are there any technical issues with your webstore? If you are not sure whether you know the answer to this question, a comprehensive webstore audit is what your business needs right now. From fledgling startups to established companies with thousands of products, BelVG provides a thorough e-commerce website audit that reviews a webstore from every possible angle.
Whether you own a brand new webstore or have an existing website, an audit is the first step of every development process. Our team of experts will find all of the existing bottlenecks and fix them to optimize performance. Relying on our extensive experience, we consider all possible ways to improve efficiency and provide our clients with a customized solution. Choosing BelVG’s certified developers is guaranteed to improve your webstore.
The webstore audit process involves several steps:
#1 Check the Magento codebase for possible problems
To manage a comprehensive back-end audit, it is necessary for us to get access to your server (SSH and GIT), as well as the login information for your admin panel. After that BelVG developers dive into your webstore code to analyze it and evaluate:
- the quality and cleanliness of your Magento code
- changes made
- installed extensions
- compatibility of third-party plugins with Magento;
- extension versions
- caching processes
Since the codebase of your webstore isn’t set in stone, monitoring code changes is important. An extensive review of changes shows the true quality of code and allows for identification of weaknesses in the development process. Knowing the entire history of a webstore’s code means establishing the causal link between implemented changes and their effects. An audit gives us the opportunity to predict potential errors and solve them before they appear. Before any audit, it is crucial that you do your webstore backup.
#2 Audit all the installed extensions
As the functionality of a webstore increases so will the number of extensions that are installed. This correlation is clear and every merchant working with Magento knows that. But not all business owners are aware that running a growing number of built-in plugins may cause performance issues. Why does the webstore run slowly? Why doesn’t an extension work properly after installation? These problems shouldn’t be an issue when using the latest version of the extensions produced by a company. However, in most situations, that isn’t the case. The best thing to do is to review all of the extensions your webstore has. With its team of certified extension developers, BelVG will audit the installed modules and professionally test their compatibility with Magento.
#3 Do a detailed review of all custom extensions
Having a tailormade extension that meets your needs precisely seems like an essential part of a high level approach that distinguishes your webstore from other competitors. It may actually cause more trouble than it’s worth. BelVG reviews the code and performance of custom third-party extensions to make sure they work properly and do not have a negative impact on your webstore performance.
#4 Conduct a survey of server architecture and logs
You can update your webstore and all of its extensions to the latest version. You can try all sorts of techniques to optimize your webstore. All of these methods will fall short if you ignore server architecture. BelVG provides clients with a comprehensive review of server performance. We will take your PHP and MySQL versions into account, as they also influence webstore performance and security. Our clients receive information detailing how their server is set up, how its folders and files are structured, what permissions it needs, and how all of these indicators affect the webstore.
#5 Review website theme and front-end assets
#6 Run a performance review
Loading speed is a key factor of excellent webstore performance. The faster your webstore operates, the more likely it is to reach the first page of a Google search and draw in new customers. The loading speed depends on multiple factors:
- Server performance
- Cache and reindex settings
- Images optimization
- Code quality
Having experience with a broad range of ways to improve the performance of Magento webstores, BelVG is able to provide effective solutions for all of its clients.
#7 Assess security patches and known vulnerabilities
No one wants their webstore to be vulnerable to security issues and easily hackable. Security is the number one concern for an e-commerce website as customers share sensitive payment information when purchasing products. Magento works hard to make its platform as secure as possible. That’s why patches are developed and presented to clients on an ongoing basis, making it easy for webstore owners to keep up with the newest editions. How secure is your webstore? Have BelVG check all of your installed patches to get in-depth analysis that will fortify your webstore security measures.
#8 Review all other integrations
An e-commerce website is a complex mechanism with hundreds of installed ready-to-use programs, custom extensions and third-party integrations. As there are no out-of-box solutions suitable for all businesses and markets, such installations are a vital instrument in the process of webstore development. With BeIVG you can test payment, shipping and made-to-order systems integrations and learn how they influence site performance.
