Hi @skintflickz,

You can always check this out by switching off HTTPS and use only HTTP. Having said that Most probably this is not the root cause of the issue.

What most probably is, it’s you were having a bit of a load, did you manage to check if the droplet was performing as regular or it was under some pressure?

Additionally, usually, the load times are based on plugins and other stuff. If you have a caching plugin most probably it just needs to cache your page when going over an https request.

Another thing you can use is, a website like pingdom to see what requests are actually bringing the time up.
