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.
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. http://www.nailontheheadinc.com/grunge-construction1.gif
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.
