    Major Issues with Server Response Time, please help


    I run a site on a VPS with GoDaddy. The site on average is taking 11-15 seconds to load. Much of it seems to be waiting for the server to respond. The site is run on Wordpress and I am using W3 Cache with most options enabled. When I use Pingdom, it says just the initial connect to my server the wait time is upwards of 6 seconds. Connect, send is fast. Wait is slow. Receive is fast. What I can do?

    What does it say in the Performance Grade tab (in Pingdom)? I don't know, could it taking too many DNS lookups?

    You could also try discussing it with the host.

    Your hosting/server is different from DNS. Do you have both domains/hosting with GoDaddy?

    They suck.

    They're horrible.

    They're just as bad as hosting files as Danica is winning races.

    Switch to HostGator.
