Issues with a slow site

Recommended Posts

globalnative

Hi guys!

 

I don't know if this is your area but I don't know who else to ask. I checked my load times at this link: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/db85rF/natemaingard.com

 

Turns out my site loads slower than 80% of the sites tested!

 

I've shrunk all the images, but I'm not really skilled in this area. Please let me know if you can see why my site is a slow loader and how I could speed it up!

 

Thanks so much

Nate

Hi Nate,

 

99.9% of the time, the issue with users having slow load times and websites is usually related to their hosting environment. So if you're in a shared hosting environment, then I would highly recommend switching, shared hosting isn't known for its performance.

 

Also, I see that you're using a minify plugin and W3 Total Cache, cache plugins such as W3 Total Cache need to be setup correctly, if they aren't, they can cause issues. So you will need to contact your web host provider and ask them for assistance in correctly configuring the plugin.

 

I would recommend you check out Flywheel, a lot of our store developers and ourselves use them and have no problems.
