Have you analyzed your website on website such as gtmetrix? It will provide you a report with suggestions of how to optimize your wordpress website. Does your vps has any caching enabled? How about mysql and apache optimization?

You have to optimize your VPS resources as well as apache , mysql services . as rshosting suggested check the result in gtmetrix and you will get the idea of what has to be done.

Time To First Byte (TTFB) depends on network latency. Where is your server located? Which region users are you targeting? Moving to a server which is geographically close to your visitors will improve its latency.

Hi! I think you need choice VPS with much better network quality, also check location is very important.

Take a look into what processes are eating all the power then narrow it down from that point.

Yes remove unwanted plugins , optimize images, if its cpanel VPS , opcache and php-FPM , this should help speed-up your wordpress site.

There are tons of problems making your site slow load as unwanted plugins, malware, bugs, wrong configurations..etc
Have you checked server logs out? what size of your website you are having?

It doesn't actually matter even though if you have hosted on a Dedicated server since you might have the plugins causing the Wordpress to perform slow, this actually has happened with me, watch your plugins.

Two factors causes this issue, first is latency and second is your server performance which is major cause.

If you are using apache on your server and there are multiple large sites hosted on it which are having more hits, your apache server get busy with queued visitors, as a result, it affect on TTFB. If you replace your web server with litespeed of course your TTFB get improved.

Check the website for a 360-degree analysis and if there seems any loophole then try to fix it. If the issue is still persistent, then try to find servers that are located more near the geolocation of target audience of interest and move the website on this specific server.

We had the same problem on one of my Wordpress sites that got larger than a usual Wordpress site. We had numerous plugins on it, including ecommerce plugins, and the site became slow.

We fixed the slowness problem by doing two things:
1) We installed WP Rocket which is a caching Plugin for WordPress. You can find it at https://wp-rocket.me/ We used two other caching plugins for Wordpress, and both were OK, but still not idea. WP Rocket is absolutely awesome.
2) We made our website go through Cloudflare and enabled the Cloudflare caching and a feature called Cloudflare Rocket Loader. This did a great job too, so as it solved the slowness problems which we had for various reasons.

With WordPress, even with a Server, it needs be optimized.

As great as Apache is (or was in some cases), if the overall system is not address or optimized, one then has to add more and more resources to achieve what some systems can achieve by default.

For instance, when one uses an Apache system, and most times has cPanel installed, they then have to upgrade Apache to CloudLinux or LiteSpeed, and then install additional plugins in their WordPress installation to make it faster. It contradicts the suggestions of removing plugins.

A Nginx system can achieve greater results for WordPress without the need of adding more resources.

Another element...the database...which is the real engine behind any and every WordPress website. If the database is not optimized or has issues, it will affect how WordPress performs.

I will not talk about hosting in my reply. However there are some inputs from end for a wordpress website owner.

1. Use plugins that you need or that your website depends on, never use plugins that are not useful or not needed. Even, if they are deactivated. Please remove or delete them permanenetly.

2. Use all rounder plugins, I have seen too many people in my experience, who complain on server while the problem is overloaded wp instance. Some people use two SEO plugins, two firewall or security plugins, three social media sharing plugins and start complaining. This is quite common with most newbies and intermediate users as well.

WordPress uses files as well as db. If your db is crossing its minimal size, expect slow websites, slow or downtime on website and lot more. People will think, adding RAM or buying dedicated server will solve issue. No, its not going to solve anything, you just burn your money nothing else. Unless you fix WP issues nothing will change.

3. Use image optimization plugin that is low on resources like WP Smush it and DB Cleaner and optimization plugins like WP Sweep or WP Optimizer these are quite stable plugins and does the job nicely.

4. Manage your wordpress, if you want a fast website learn to manage it and keep it good. Avoid themes that are poorly coded, do not add whatever plugin you find and bloat your WP

5. Install a caching plugin, w3tc works wonderful, if you properly configure it.

Right now you are using cloudflare, but let me tell you we have seen cloudflare accounts are compromised. One person approached us with cloudflare on his website redirect to torrent website, he is not monitioring his cloudflare account, so recently when cloudflare had DDos attack, his account is compromised and it was redirecting to torrent site, until he found it and then changed back to server dns.

So, when using cloudflare free account keep an eye. Also keep subscribed to their newsletter and updates to know latest things happening with their systems.

As members suggested cloudlinux with lightspeed with make tremendous difference in performance. But I think its an overkill for your budget already as you are using VPS. If your budget allows consider upgrading to cloudlinux atleast and see the difference.

SSD will also make a lot of difference, and when SSL is used on HDD and normal Apache its highly possible for slow intial loadtime. So your underlying stack makes a huge difference. As I said WP optimization is also crucial.

Hope this helped you, thank you.

Most of what you said makes sense, but...


I will not talk about hosting in my reply.

But you did later on ;)


4. Manage your wordpress, if you want a fast website learn to manage it and keep it good.
Not everyone knows how to do this. Managing WordPress is more than just keeping things up to date, and for some website owners, they don't have time to learn or understand that concept.

The other issue...many WordPress "gurus" will tell people to setup a WordPress website, and not tell them or give them any advice about security or even updates. As long as they get the affiliate income, that's as far as they go with being helpful.



The OP solved the issue, but by adding more things to the overall setup. It still means that somewhere within the overall setup needs to be addressed.
