Since I have a low skill on this, we where wondering if someone could help us out here?

Hi @morten4ab82ca54,

I can’t offer someone to do this however, I can give you a few pointers as how to check this yourself.

Now, TTFB stands for time to first byte and it’s usually assumed everything is connected to the server. It’s not quite like that as the optimization of the website is also in play here.

Let’s start with the website itself

  • You’ll need to make sure the size of your pages are not too big by uploading only optimized images.
  • You’ll need to enable GZIP compression. If using Apache, this can be done directly in your .htaccess file.
  • Add some sort of caching. If you are using a CMS, most certainly you’ll be able to add some sort of a caching plugin.


Onto the server now

  • First, you’ll need to make sure your RAM is enough to handle the load on your website. To do so, you’ll need to monitor it for some time and see how your server performs. Starting with the smallest droplet should be good enough as a start.
  • The second part would be installing some sort of server side caching - Opcache would be a very good choice here.
