Yes. I started using W3Total with CloudFlare enabled. It improved the performance phenomenally however, still the “wait” time from server is high.

From an earlier “mean” load time of 9s has come down to 4s AND From an earlier server response time of 0.8s has come down to 0.6s

It seems Apache being the known “laggy” devil, is not able to handle the traffic.

I’m going left-right & up-down to optimize it. Any suggestion in this direction would be really helpful!

Have you considered running any caching plug in of WordPress ??
