Why is my Website so Slow.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I hope I am asking in the right place as this has been driving me mad, I've recently migrated this website http://brucefarms.co.uk to a new hosting on GoDaddy. The website as it stands is very slow and I was hoping once I did the below it would be upto speed but nothing seems to be improving?

 

I would admin I am a beginner(ish) web designer.

 

I installed

 

W3 Total Cache as a page report indicated it wasn't caching at all.

WP Optimise

Regen Thumbnails

WP Smush

 

But the website is still poor.

 

ps if you want to view the new version as it's not live yet you will have to change your hosts file to point

 

brucefarms.co.uk to 160.153.16.19

 

Thanks any help would be really appreciated.

A shared server (with 3000 other website) in Arizona, loads of plugins, poor theme and 85 server requests

 

It took 19 seconds for the server to respond.

 

Move to a decent UK host, junk the theme and remove the plugins (you don't need them)

Thanks for the reply - Could you tell me where you got the Arizona information from? The server was supposed to be UK with goDaddy

The IP you've provided is reported by GoDaddy as being located in Scottsville, Arizona - http://viewdns.info/iplocation/?ip=160.153.16.19, same place as your current hosting ( brucefarms.co.uk resolves to 173.201.63.128)

 

Physical location may be different.

GoDaddy is a US company and their servers are mainly US based (though I believe they also have data centres in Amsterdamn and Singapore), plus they overcrowd servers as fisicx pointed out - hence the "low price" and "unlimited" offerings.

 

For a UK company with a presumably mainly UK audience you'd do much better with a quality UK web host...

The dundeecoldstores.co.uk resolves to a different IP address, that particular server may not be as overloaded as the other one (yet).

Hi, the dundeecoldstores.co.uk is hosted on 163.150.16.19 (new hosting I recently purchased) if you configure you're host file to point brucefarms.co.uk to this IP as well, you will see that they are both slow.

I think your site or plugins on site having problem. Try to disable all plugins on your slower site and test again. Example 4 cache plugins you listed above:

 

W3 Total Cache
WP Optimise
Regen Thumbnails
WP Smush

The website speed is depends on

 

- number of server request

- Size of Images

- Java Script and CSS files

- Theme

- Installed Plugins

 

Things to consider:

 

- Send minimal request to server for processing

- Set the size of image as per block not more than that

- Put JS and CSS file in seperate folder and call only when you need it

- Choose responsive theme that takes less time to load

- If you are using any CMS then try to use plugin if you didn't have solutions of it.

 

Be careful with these above points and increase your website speed. Hope you will like it.

Your server-side/back-end performance plays a crucial role in your page performance. There are many causes to a slow server-side, but they can essentially be grouped into two categories like Inefficient code or SQL, Bottlenecks/Slow Server.

Since each site has a unique platform and setup, the solution to these issues is dependent on each site. Used to improve server-side speed is to do Code Optimization, Page Caching, site optimization.

On the server side note you can debug bottle necks, php would be add this at the very beginning...

<?php $time = microtime(); $time = explode(' ', $time); $time = $time[1] + $time[0]; $start = $time; ?>

... then you can report into the source after each main component to see where the bloat is, e.g. ...

<?php include("somebigincludefile.php"); ?>
<?php $time = microtime(); $time = explode(' ', $time); $time = $time[1] + $time[0]; $finish = $time; $total_time = round(($finish - $start), ; echo "<!-- Big include file generated in " . $total_time . " seconds. -->"; ?>

One of the best ways to test for network problems is to run a traceroute from your computer to the server. A traceroute will show all of the network hops between you and the server, and how long your connection took to go through each one. It will also show network timeouts (with ***). Run the following command from your computer's command prompt:

  • Mac
    traceroute example.com
  • Windows
    tracert example.com

As per my understanding, Godaddy is no longer standing out host provider for shared hosting and their technical support team is always asking for paid technical support. So, I have moved my website to new host.
