Really slowwwwwww website

Why is Dreamhost soooo slooowww? I just moved my site to them because they supported some features Godaddy didn’t, but it takes forever to load my pages.

Whats up with it?
Is there somewhere or somehow I can check the server load or test it to see how fast it is?

Thanks

What is so slow is the store. It runs through PHP and takes forever.
