Question

Website too slow on mobile

So I’ve built a Pinterest like website and sometimes it takes forever to load on mobile. At the moment I have 20 images at the homepage, and I’m using Lazy load. Any suggestions to improve the situation? Because I plan to have as many images as I can at the homepage. I’m using the 512 MB plan but when I will launch my website I’ll increase it. Will it help? Or I need to do something else?

Increasing it will definitely help. For a noticeably bigger speed increase, I would bring it to the $20/month level or higher, because you get 2 CPU cores instead of one. However, judging by your description it might not be enough to just increase the Droplet.

I can’t really help you because I don’t know what your website is, but use a tool like https://gtmetrix.com/ and it will tell you things you can modify on your website to make it load faster.
