slow response times


I’m the owner of Before moving to DO we had 4 seconds max page load times and currently only server response time is 2 - 3 seconds and page loads in 10-15 . I’ve checked everything regarding to Apache2, Mysql and PHP with no luck. We are running on Centos 7, SSH panel with Apache2.

Hi there @onderdigiturk,

I’ve run a quick scan with Pingdom, and it looks quite good:

The load time is around ~1.8 seconds and the server response time is less than 1 second.

There are a few things that you need to take into consideration:

  • Add Expires headers
  • Use cookie-free domains
  • Compress components with gzip
  • Make fewer HTTP requests

I believe that if you work on the things above the load time would drop even more.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
