How to reduce the server response time? Taking too long to respond!
Hello, its been more than a week now since I have migrated my blog from shared hosting to the DigitalOcean's $20/ month plan.
I was expecting better performance, but then I ran some tests and the results were not so impressive.
The response time is too much. Even on the shared hosting the load time of the blog was around 2.5 seconds and 3 sec at max, while now, it is more than 4.5 or 5 seconds. As of now, the response time of the blog is around 1 to 1.6 seconds and this is not happening for only the homepage but for all the pages of the blog.
I don't have much knowledge about server optimization, but totally aware of the fact that my server needs some tuning to perform properly.
Can anybody please tell me that how can I decrease this response time to the minimum and how can I make my blog to load faster or how to optimize the performance of my server.
