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

Hosting #74

Only install essential components on the server

Uninstall any services that are not vital for running the website. This will inevitably remove daemons (programs that constantly run in the background) which drain resources such as CPU power and RAM.

Development #10

Minimize the number of CSS files and compress them

Minimize the number of CSS files to reduce the number of HTTP requests. If several style sheets are used on all of the website’s pages, concatenate them into one single file.

Some CMS and frameworks offer ways to do such optimization automatically. The HTTP server can also be configured to compress and reduce the size of style sheets (see best practice #79).
