It didn't seem that terrible from the UK. On shared hosts sites can be intermittently affected but they are normally aware if there are sudden spikes in traffic. There are also ongoing issues with Wordpress sites and brute force attacks which can cause response times to be painfully slow and then fine without any apparent reason. Ensure you have a security plugin to protect your admin area.

 

PS Just a comment but are those quickslider images on the homepage meant to be so pixelated?

PHP Magic Quotes gpc : Yes (bad) PHP User : Posix functions are disabled on this host!

It might be beneficial to contact your host and ask them to remove the deprecated functionality or upgrade to PHP version 5.4.
