I just recently installed wordpress on my web server to use as a CMS. However, from the moment i installed it, my website became extremely slow. Prior to this I never had this problem, so I am sure that its not entirely from my hosting (hostingdude). I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem. If so, any advice on how I could fix it?
The website is: http://www.pikatzu.com
i tested it in firefox, safari and chrome and I find it painfully slow. @mattvot, 8 seconds is too long don’t you think, i’d get impatient and leave a site if each page took that long to load, if it didnt have large images in it? I’m getting a little above 5 seconds for the home page. It was less than half that before I incorporated wordpress.
