I know that others have had issues with this before, but after doing the basic steps, namely:
-deactivating any unused plug-ins
There has been absolutely no improvement.
I am hosting the site with dreamhost and i have a number of other wordpress sites there that run just fine.
Could it be something to do with the theme (Goodspace) that I am using?
I also read about someone who had a site running slow because they had been hacked. How do I even check for this?
