Hey guys,

On my old VPS, my server reponse time was around 310ms but when I switch to a new VPS it was reduced to 24ms when I used ping command.

Hi Kaz !
The response time is based only on the distance between you and your server. You can reduce DNS response time or page loading time for a web server, but there is no way for me to reduce a response time for a ping.

Ping times are pretty much irreverent.

The time it takes a server to respond to a ping does not reflect the time it take the server to respond with a website.

I can take a old dual core Pentium computer and put it in a data center across town and get 20ms ping responses. BUT load WordPress on it and it might take it 5 minutes to respond with the web page!

I would take a fast VPS or dedicated server with more CPUs to help your site load faster, of course is you need to use CDN like suggestions in this thread. Server response time is really important for my sites, If you can pass this point in PageSpeed Insights from Google, your website has got an advantage from search engine optimization.

DNS response time is one among several other factors that affects your website speed. If you're concerned about the website speed, I would say you'll need to first look at optimizing the server on resources and based on your application.
I've worked with a lot guys who had great configuration servers, however software limits are set low and then complain about the speed. I'd say its optimization comes in top priority.

Did you mean for ping test or global dns response time found on page speed tests?
For ping is explained by VirtuBox for page speed tests that mean that your website get some data from other servers and that is how your DNS response time get bigger.

I think use of tool like gtmetrix.com will give exact idea and suggest the areas of improvements. If there is anything burdensome website performance down than this tool will suggest. Second most important part is paying more to your hosting provider for hosting and hardware. This option could be expensive but will provide relief more quickly and conveniently.

GTMetrix is a great tool, but it will only help you with website optimization. GTMetrix cannot analyze the server to determine how to decrease server response time.

Have you considered that your previous VPS was hosted on a server node with routing issues? Unless your provider switched phyisical locations of the server node there is no resonable explentation unless that of a malfunction.

Dedicated VPS with CDN and always minify your javascript and CSS files. Configure Varnish for Static content and Redis for Databases.

Cloud flare offer free CDN. However if you dont intend to use CDN for your services. I will suggest to use NGINX web server as front end proxy with apache2 running behind.

response time is depends upon the distance between the destination and source and also depends the number of routers between the destination and source. If you are looking for small response time, you may choose a server near to your location. routing issues also increase the response time.

I got your point but server response time is different from website loading speed?
there some people said lower response you will get better speed. Is that right?

Any chance this network is going over any VPN?

Chances are that you might be creating a rift between the devices and the data going over it.

Make sure you buy server near to your clients, many people make mistake by getting server near to them, its not good idea. Always get server near to clients so they have less ping distance.

Response time depends on routing, location while website loading speed is also about the server setup, the website itself, how optimized the site is and so on. If you lower the response speed, the website might load faster but not necessarily as there are other factors like the ones mentioned above.

Well, it's all about distance. The distance between you and the server. The closer the better. Check the loading speed as well.

The VPS speed depends on how many websites are you running on the VPS, the resources, RAM allocated to it. If there is adequate amount of resources available on your VPS then definitely it will run faster.

You should monitor the post-get requests coming to your server and MySQL processes used to run on the server. You should use the monitoring tools for the analysis of the server traffic, requests. You should monitor the server disk space, exim queues too for the better performance. There should be plenty of space on the server drive.

Also you should optimize websites before uploading them on your server so server speed will be properly maintained.

A website`s slow performance is most of the time related to slow server response. Below are some tactics for reducing your web server response time.

Choose a fast and reliable web hosting
Make sure you use CDN so that all your site visitors enjoy fast page loading time.
Make sure your database is optimized : It is quite optimized that website load time depends upon its database optimization
Keep your WordPress theme light weight.

Depends where you are pinging the server from. If you are using a home ISP ping times will be slow. Due to there is a lot people working from home at this time.

I think you should use gmatrix who gives an exact understanding and right suggestion. gmetrix is the perfect tool to optimize a website for perfect response time. if you going to analyze by yourself the real reason for a high load time than it takes it's of time.

but you can check and improve response time
- choose best and a good responsive hosting server
- make sure your CDN Is updated
- updated CSC of your website
- try to use compressed stuff lie image, theme, video, and more.
