Configured mod expires, optimized apache and mysql settings, found fragmented and non indexed tables, , detected out of memory issues, installed swap daemon and tuned system parameters, but still really slow.

Your website is still very heavy! I have used gtmetrix, and it shows that your home page weighs 2.78MB, 171 requests and loaded at 18.9s. Images are great single page loading villains, unnecessary modules and scripts See this site

Guy’s I am facing same issue on my blog i.e about response according to google page speed tool by sites response time is 0.24 sec.

How can i fixed ???

Try to switch on the CCC (COMBINE, COMPRESS AND CACHE). Advanced parameters > Performance. As I know Prestashop needs only 128Mb of RAM (64 MB min). So, I don’t this that RAM, increasing will help you… Try to work with cache… (Varnish, radish). Turn on the Apc, or Memcache. Or you can try ( It’s a digital ocean droplet management app. They already have configured Prestashop droplet. And the price is like on the DO.
