    performance of the page

    I am developing a site which will have huge number of visitors and contents of the pages will be updated frequently (say every 15 min). What are the steps that I can take to improve the performance?

    I'd say start by using a good webhost, avoid shared host I guess.
    Make sure you use caching wherever you can.
    Compress your JS, CSS, images,...
    Add expires headers, gzip your content,...
    Use a Content Delivery Network.

    Hope it helps...

    First of all may I say that I am intrigued by your confidence to create a site that will have a huge number of visitors. What is your secret?

    Between Server and Browser there are bound to be bottlenecks and I would be tempted to find some good tools for monitoring performance.

    Here is a thread which may help:

    For network and client side performance tools like YSlow can be helpful (also see the Yahoo! performance guidelines).

    For server side, the database is usually a slow part, so caching as much ready-to-display data as possible will speed things up there. Something like memcached let's you store objects in memory (e.g. a rendered page or page fragement) so those will display very fast.
