Best pratice examples...

From design to hosting, 115 best practices are tested and explained. Here are some examples, but be sure to check the other ones:

Hosting #70

Use virtual servers

Instead of using a dedicated server for each project, and loading it up to 20% of its capability, pool machine resources through a hypervisor. One physical machine can offer the same service as 4 dedicated servers at 20%. This optimizes the use of the processor and RAM while consuming less electricity than multiple physical servers. This method also reduces the amount of electronic waste (WEEE) generated by the website.

Design #92

Adapt videos to the viewing environment

Consider several formats (size, frame rate, audio compression, etc.) depending on the bookContext in which the videos will be watched (desktop computer, WiFi tablet, EDGE smartphone, etc.).
Videos should be optimized outside of the website, ideally during post production. If that is not possible, use services like YouTube or Vimeo which offer, as standard, several optimized formats (SD, HD, etc.).
