The World Wide Web is quickly becoming the World Wide Wait.
Our web site does not suffer from the bottle necks that other web sites have. We do not use a database to serve every page requested, all pages are in final form ready to be serve to people's browsers.
Sites that use a database to serve pages require very powerful equipment to be able to serve the pages particularly during a heavy loads - often they don't. Compounding this other sites do not even change the contents of their webs pages frequently - what a waste!
We serve all of our pages directly with the Apache web server - this keeps our cost down and allows us to have a scalable web server.
