I have enabled Really Simple SSL in my WordPress website and also enabled the .htaccess redirect.
Now when I try to test the loading speed of the website, it is showing a really high time to first byte on the first load. It is waiting at http://www.sycyoga.com and again at sycyoga.com for a time of 2.5 seconds each approx.
Why is this happening? My site’s home page is only around 1.6MB size.
As you can see, the tests ran after that are showing reduced load times.
I am confused why this is happening. Can you please help me out?
Here is the link to my website’s test: https://www.webpagetest.org/result/190115_QW_71cab267ae71388e4d1a99e2f70b5a39/January 15, 2019 at 11:10 am #159853
a high time to first byte indicates that the server takes a long time to process your request. This is caused by the webserver and not so much by WordPress. Possibly you are on a shared hosting platform with a lot of sites. I’d suggest to contact your hosting provider about this issue, they will be able to look into this and check why the TTFB is that high.January 15, 2019 at 12:08 pm #159876
Thanks so much for your fast response.
I have talked with the web hosting support and they are telling it’s not an issue from their side.
They are telling me to further optimize the website and reduce landing page redirects.
But how do I reduce the redirects?
Thanks so much for your help!January 15, 2019 at 4:40 pm #159974
