Honestly, this is making zero sense as I noticed it pretty much immediately after the wordpress install. Page refreshes are taking 4-6 seconds, just for wordpress pages. In the admin, when I add a product to woocommerce, the page refreshes take even longer, sometimes like 10 seconds. No clue, and for me to have to spend time on this so early in the dev process is just a tremendous time suck. Theme is GeneratePress Premium. Only other plugins so far that are even uploaded and activated are Woocommerce and WP Super Cache, which is enabled without any further mods to that plugin.
No clue, but I can't deal with this so early in the process. Might just be moving to GoDaddy. Sorry, this is just not what I need to give me time to when I have clients to serve.
