My website taking 567ms with Let’s Encrypt (https) and 64ms without SSL (simple http) on NGINX + PHP7.0 + Ubuntu 16.04.

Hi, I tested my website on to know Time To First Byte (TTFB) and I found out with Let’s Encrypt (https) it took 567ms but without SSL (URL with HTTP) it took just 64ms. My droplet is on Ubuntu 16.04 with LEMP setup.

Check attached images for more detail I can see a long time on SSL connection —> with SSL —> without SSL

Is something wrong in my SSL setup. Please help.

Hello friend!

I visited your website using http and https, and I was not able to reproduce any additional delay over https. There will of course always be some fluctuation for various reasons both local and remote, but I cannot see a sound reason for any significant and consistent delay there.

Kind Regards, Jarland
