Three tips to prepare for peak traffic

Peak shopping season is just around the corner. Is your website prepared? Some websites slow down, and others simply crash, driving users (and revenue) away. Your website needs to accommodate a multitude of devices that will be accessing it, along with the potential for malicious attacks such as Bots and DDoS.

We've compiled a few key tips to ensure your website is ready for traffic spikes, whether it's due to a shopping holiday like Black Friday or just a large sale or promotion.

Akamai can help you ensure you're ready for heavy traffic volume. We'll optimize and protect your network, and then test it thoroughly before the rush. So the next time your website traffic spikes higher than normal, you can pat yourself on the back for a job well done and grow your business.
