    Hi,

    glad to hear your issue is resolved Joaquín!

    Usually issues with CSS are different on each site. If you could send me your site address I’ll have a look to see what the issue might be.

    I’m having the same issue. My site is loading PAINFULLY slow after SSL. Pingdom says it is taking 60s. Obviously completely unacceptable. I use WP Rocket. I’m using the pro version of your plugin and have a “secure” lock showing up properly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Can you post your domain, or post a support request with your domain? That way we can take a look. Usually this is caused by slow loading third party scripts, or a slow server. You can read more about this here:

    Hi Sandeep,

    you can test your site at https://tools.pingdom.com to see what might be causing this. Usually slow loading is caused by third party scripts or a slow server.

    I’m having similar issues since enabling SSL using Really Simple SSL.

    Hi,

    see https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/dZZPkT/www.heroicstarfish.com, your site has four images which are almost 1mb each. If you make those images smaller then the loading time would improve. Otherwise the site seems to be pretty fast.

    I’ve resized the images as you suggested but there’s a definite delay during the redirect portion of the page load. Also the delay is on all pages, not just the front page with those images.

    Did you enable the .htaccess redirect in settings/ssl? That’s the fastest redirect.

    Google will only show the new https URL, so Google visitors won’t get a redirect. So a redirect is only for links on other sites that are still with http. See for more information:

    Yes I’m using .htaccess redirect. Is there anything else I can check to try to improve the speed of my site? It really is running painfully slowly and my customers have reported the same thing.

    I see on pingdom that specifically a Woocommerce ajax script is loading slow:
    wc-ajax=get_refreshed_fragments

    I found this thread which might help:
    https://www.webnots.com/fix-slow-page-loading-with-woocommerce-wc-ajaxget_refreshed_fragments/

    I can recommend to analyze the pingdom results in this way. Look at the parts that are especially loading slow, look into that part.

    I hear what you’re saying but unfortunately that doesn’t explain why the admin section of the site is running just as slow as the front end or why pages that don’t use that ajax file are running slowly.

    Also, every time I run a test on pingdom it tells me the same thing. It’s the redirects that are causing a delay. It varies in length each time I do it but that’s clearly where the issue is.

    #79514 Reply

    If you have enabled the .htaccess redirect, that’s about as fast as you can get it. And, as I mentioned earlier, the speed with redirect is not really important: as it’s a 301 redirect, your customers will get this redirect only the first time they visit the site, and visitors that come from Google will never get a redirect at all.

    The redirect is also not responsible for your admin site loading slow: your browser already is loading your site without a redirect.

    Because of this I always measure speed for the https domain, without the redirect, and not for the http domain.

    If the site is slow due to the SSL encryption delay, you could consider switching to a faster hosting plan.

    Hello,

    yesterday, I enable SSL on my domain and installed really-simple-ssl plugin on it.
    The speed from under 2 secs to average 3.5 secs and even more.
    I have WP Fastest Cache plugin enabled.

    Will you please advise?

    Thanks, a lot

    my new question is if I set up Redirect in .htaccess file, for example,
    https://au.godaddy.com/help/redirect-http-to-https-automatically-8828

    Do I still need to install and enable the plugin: Really Simply SSL?

    (I think I do not need it as it will duplicate redirections. Am I correct?)

    Please advise,

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    Really Simple SSL also has an option to set up an .htaccess redirect. When you enable the .htaccess redirect option in the plugin settings, the plugin will write the necessary rules to the .htaccess file automatically. Really Simple SSL also fixed mixed content, this is not done by only a redirect only.

    Usually when the site slow down this is due to the redirect. Some servers/hosting providers can take some time before processing the redirect. The .htaccess redirect option is usually the fastest.

    Hi all.

    I was having the same error at site performance like you.
    As solution I updated PHP version to the last released and updated WordPress version too. The slow performance was solved.

    I hope this help.

    Hi Helen,

    we reply to every support request, is this your support request? https://wordpress.org/support/topic/really-simple-ssl-my-website-became-so-slow/. If the support request is made more then once via different channels we usually only respond on one channel as well.

    Often when a site has slowed down after migrating this has to do with the redirect speed. On some hosting providers this can take a while, slowing the site down. Normally the performance impact of Really Simple SSL is minimal, see: https://really-simple-ssl.com/knowledge-base/really-simple-ssl-make-site-slower/.

    Hi Mark

    Thank you for your response and I apologize for not seeing your response there.

    So currently I’ve removed the redirecting to http. It is now properly redirecting to https.

    If you can kindly help to see why its still slow. I appreciate your kind response and help

    Hi Helen,

    the main culprit seems to be the WordPress admin-ajax.php file. You can see a detailed report of the site loading here: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/db789v/http://britex.com which reveals what is taking the site so long to load. I’m unable to tell you why this it taking so long, perhaps you can contact your hosting provider about this.

    Hi. It looks like this is a common issue but I did not find any answers above so here it goes. My website was loading under 2 seconds. I installed the ssl cert and used your plugin. Now it is loading at more than 10 secs. Using an online tool I also compared loading times for http://www.souhttps://www.souhttp://sou… and https://sou
    The 2 http options are loading at 2,57 secs and the 2 https options are loading at more than 10 secs.
    Using another tool online apparently the main issue is I need to reduce the loading time of redirects.
    So, I guess this is an http to https redirect issue?
    Can you help fix this?

    We wrote an article about this, which is linked in the previous answers as well:
    https://really-simple-ssl.com/knowledge-base/really-simple-ssl-make-site-slower/

    This covers most issues that users may have with SSL, including the redirect you mention.

    Hi Abdul,

    if the site loads the images fine on http:// but becomes slow on https:// it’s likely the server that is hosting these images is slow. Are you hosting these images on your own site or are they hosted by a third party? If they are hosted on your own site you can contact your hosting company about this.
