Initial DNS request to website Ridiculously Slow ~ 3-5 seconds
Im experiencing really slow initial response to DNS/website requests.
Just finished up migrating a WP site on a Debianx32 LEMP stack droplet and everything is working 'fine' except for when i do a speed test.
The initial GET request to the DNS takes on average 3-5 seconds to complete.
The overall page loadtime becomes 3 seconds longer than it should be..
Page load time: 5.24s
Total page size: 1.12MB
Total number of requests: 60
Page load time should ideally be ~ 2 seconds at the minimum..
atleast it was on a previous shared hosting account..
i expected/hoped that ssd and closer datacenter to be at or below a shared host.
Any ideas on how i can tweek/troubleshoot this?
Ive tried with and without cloudflare CDN to see if i can speed it up but it makes no difference.
the dns are current set to google and level3 as a backup
Why the severe latency/slow reponse?
Thanks for any suggestions..
