I've been using dreamhost for over a month, but because of some speed issues, I decided to upgrade my site to Dreampress. I was hoping that everything will be fine and great, but what I got was appalling. After really quick support from Dreamhost team, they stopped responding to me. My site didn't speed up at all. You can tell that 10-12 seconds are pretty long and I lost most of my customers because of this problem. Today, I got into action and looked into the possible reasons of my slow website. I installed W3 cache, minify JS and a lot of other useful things to improve its speed. The results were promising. 6-7 second long page load time was amazing for until I compared my results with my friend on WpEngine. He showed me that his server time response was only 300ms, on the other hand mine was wobbling 3 seconds. Almost all the websites I've checked my website speed asked me to upgrade my server, but shouldn't Dreampress be fast enough so that we won't have to go to other "not optimized slow servers"?
My site is Booklady.com
