My newest WordPress site is being ridiculously slow – one to two minutes to load, and the same for going from one page to another.
I just began hosting the domain with DreamHost a couple of days ago. I am still in process of building the WP site, so it’s a work in progress. Testing and reviewing my work is frustrating due to the slow load time, and of course none of my future users would ever stick around if it remains this slow.
Is there something I might have done in setting up hosting that would account for this? I should note that a subdomain I created off of it has the same problem.
I have a number of other domains hosted with DreamHost, including some on the same server as this one, and they all load fast. This is what makes me wonder if there’s something glitchy I did in setting up hosting, or in my WP installation. I don’t really think it could be the latter, though, because I’ve barely begun work on the subdomain’s WP site – it’s still mostly a bare-bones, out-of-the-box TwentyThirteen installation at this point.
