As the title says, I recently added ssl to my website and have noticed a massive slow down in response time. I used to average about 250-400ms response time, now it is about 1000ms. Most of this is due to the ssl handshake and an unknown amount of waiting period.
The website in question is asianessentials.co.uk.
I am currently on the $5 package from digital ocean, does this problem require a hardware upgrade to rectify? Or is it something I can fix from my configuration?
Any help would be much appreciated.
