Wow, what a struggle I have been having with my hosting. I have a number of sites being hosted on GoDaddy but I started to notice how slow they were.
I did everything I could think of from WP plugins, images, html code and other things to “clean up” the pages so I could get a faster load. Nothing seemed to be working.
I knew that a slow page load like this would cause some people to not wait and move on to another website. I did not want to lose the traffic and so I really put it to GoDaddy and it because clear that I was getting the run around from some of them.
I first realized my site was slow when I was using it but then I was running some site optimization software, IBP, and I love it. It has put me on page 1 with numerous keywords in a number of niche markets. Anyhow, it told me my server response time was slow so I also checked with an online website that tests website speeds and it was real bad… the website I used was http://www.host-tracker.com.
So the solution? Lose money? Nah… I switched my hosting to HostGator
Now it is lightening fast, from an average global load time of 23 seconds to 3 seconds.
Do you know how fast your server is responding? It is important if you want people to stick around your site.
