Many times we face annoyingly lower speed of wordpress even for a micro niche site which usually don,t have alot of articles and media. Is it due to server issues or due to low net speed.
Difficult to give an exact reason for your speed issues, but in general terms WP can be slow due to several issues:
• your database size
• your plugins (the less the better)
• resource hog sharing your server (ask support)
• your images not optimized
Also make sure you’re using the latest updated version of WP and use only WP authorized plugins.
If you want speed on a cheap server then don’t use WordPress.
If you “have to use Wordpress” then implement sensible caching (so that no one visiting your website is actually waiting for your WordPress application to respond).
WP-Super-Cache with Advanced settings. Do it.
WP has always been slow no matter where you host. It’s the nature of the beast; too bloated.
I eventually moved on and now code by hand, with an intuitive HTML editor of course.
Of course, but most new comers choose Wordpress.
“Nature of the Beast” and all that.
