Website loading slowly?

Apr 11, 2013 5:19 PM

Hello community,



I was wondering what would cause my website to run slowly? How can I determine if it's the host or me. The host is godaddy in this case.


The gallery images seem to be taking forever to load.


More information...

Image background is a gif

Images are less than 1MB a piece

    The site is looking for files that it cannot find. That is because they are linked to your local machine as in

    @import url("file:///E|/Drive/Google Drive/Sites/NOTH/Sitefinal/title2_0/stylesheet.css");

    @import url("file:///E|/Drive/Google Drive/Sites/NOTH/Sitefinal/blackout1/stylesheet.css");
    @import url("file:///E|/Drive/Google Drive/Sites/NOTH/Sitefinal/blackout2/stylesheet.css");

    I have a lightening fast fiber optics connection so I don't notice a lot of delay but there is some latency.  If you're on free or shared hosting plan with GoDaddy, good luck to you.  You get what you pay for.


    I notice your background image is big. 721.96 kb (739,287 bytes) is about 7-1/2 times bigger than it should be.



         16 x approx. 100 kb = 16,000+ kb for full size images

         16 x approx. 50 kb = 800+ kb for thumbnail images


    This stuff is all cumulative.  You might try reducing image file size some more.  I try to keep thumbnails around 15 kb and full size images around 50 kb.
