    Tips to reduce server response time

    Hey guys,

    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.

    Would love to have simple tips on how reduce DNS response time or page loading time. I have not known these techniques before, where I should look for to improve them.

    Follow up on what virtuBox said, using CDN services such as cloudflare can reduce the DNS response time as they will load the website from the closest address.

    Now in regards to improving your website's loading time, there is a great deal that you can do. the most simple ones which will also have great impact is compressing images and caching.

    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.

    Cloudflare is a good cdn service. i think they use the nearest data center/network for a fast response.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.
