Thread: Why is this site so slow?

  1. #1

    Default Why is this site so slow?

    I work in this field, is it a cheap hosting issue (pay a lil more) or a technical problem?

    It can take close to a minute to load a page.

    Unfortunately, this is just normal for CPF. I've read many threads on the subject, no resolution. I get the following daily . . .

    Alright BRM, you're new here so...

    This question has been asked a lot, then folks jump in and start acting all crazy, then a moderator closes the thread. Maybe that won't happen in this one but the answer is not easy to explain.

    Maybe somebody smarter than I can explain it? ...

    Thanks, I work in the IT field and manage 10 sites personally - not sure why this place is so slow but have to assume it's a low cost shared hosting account. There are better options now but some older sites figure it's easier to stay where they are - rather than migrate...I understand that also,

    Oddly, the site used to be very fast for me at a time when some people complained it was slow. Now it's slow for me while LeanBurn says it loads almost instantly for him.

    To the limited extent that I understand these things it may be related to the specific route that data takes between you and wherever CPF has its servers. Data on the Internet can take a surprisingly circuitous path and the specific path varies over time. One slow hop in the middle can muck things up.

    We have many members who live slow paced lives, we don't want the site to come off as being rushed.

    I have also closed the thread prior to reopening shortly after moving the thread, and now it will be open until it is closed and moved again.

    Love it!

    Thanks for bringing a smile and a laugh to this day. Please, please allow me to make a request to have you all show video of his early steps, 4 months (or so) from now.

    Hoping you and yours are enjoying every facet of your grandson, and the Funday.

    Giving WoodsWalker a hard time for trying to keep things nice and tidy? I may deserve that, but not him...

    I got a video earlier in the week of him standing on his own. Won't be long now before he's adding a step or two to that gig... - I'll be seeing him in person in two weeks so will have lots of pictures and video then...

    Don't bother. We'll hijack and/or delete/close that one too...

    Thread closed.


    *BTW - this post took me all of about 1 second to post.
