    Managed WordPress painfully slow

    I am using managed wordpress hosting for saintsfood.com and have been optimizing my site to leverage browser caching, minify CSS/HTML/JS and optimize images. 

     

    Using Google PageSpeed Insights, I consistently get server response times around 9 seconds.

     

    Using Pingdom, my page took 10948ms to load, with 9605ms being "wait" time waiting for the server to respond.

     

    Using WebPageTest, my page gets an "F" for a First Byte Time of 9.8s!

     

    This is really, really bad... even for shared hosting.  Is there anything that can be done?  Do I need to migrate my account to a new/different server?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Justin

    @jwright06, I just did a PageSpeed test and showing  3 seconds and your site is loading pretty fast on my connection. So, you might try to do a re-scan.

    I'm guessing you're working on it right now, i get this re-direction from my browser:

    Hello @rdominguez

     

    I don't work for GoDaddy, just a regular community person that likes helping others.

     

    I'm not getting redirected. When I type in saintsfood.com it takes me directly there. OR maybe DNS hasn't catchup to my region yet.

    Re: Managed WordPress painfully slow

    Thanks both for the replies and help, really appreciate it.

     

    I was working on the site earlier today.. I decided to migrate it over to Site Ground, I just couldn't put up with how slow the admin panel was, every click was just making me pull my hair out.

     

    Without any coding/plugin changes I'm now getting sub second server responses, I just wish I would have switched earlier and avoided lost time always "waiting".

     

    Here is my updated WebPageTest, obviously a huge improvement.

     

    Thanks again,
    Justin
