I have an ongoing TTFB problem & i’ve reached the limit of my knowledge (i’m the site owner, not the dev) so any help would be totally appreciated. An overview…
- site is www.feathr.com
- built on EE v2.9
- hosted with nexcess on shared servers in the UK
we’ve optimised the site to the hilt (images, JS reduction, plug ins etc) & have a CDN in place. Pingdom gives us a total site loading time (testing from Stockholm) of 1.5s:
But 1s of that is waiting for the server to respond - and that 1s hasn’t improved during recent optimisation.
I’m sure that traffic overloads are not the problem (we’re well within our data limits) & I know that other sites on the same shared server achieve 0.2s-0.3s server response time…so the issue seems to be site side.
can anyone advise on where to start looking for potential bottlenecks/causes?
