Is there more performance I can eke out of my server?
This is probably crazy, but I’m trying to reduce my page load times as much as possible. I’m not sure if I’m being held back by the server, or if there is more performance to be had just by tuning. I’ve done a certain amount already and my site already scores 100 on Google PageSpeed, but my TTFB is still pretty slow for a completely static site.
Basically I’m just serving a static HTML file and a couple of images at this stage, but TTFB is something like 550ms. I’m running the base tier DO Droplet (1 cpu/512mb RAM).
My question is whether I can expect better from the server with more tuning work or whether I really need to upgrade to a pricier environment to improve page load / server response times.
