    Website slow (GTmetrix PageSpeed Score A 99%)

    Hi!

     

    My website (Prolifik Solutions) has been unstable for a while now and I've been trying to fix it, with no success. I've optimized lots of stuff, brought the page size to 1.12MB and it now has a 99% PageSpeed Score on GTmetrix, but is still very unstable.

     

    What I mean by unstable is that the website only loads in 2 seconds if you're lucky; most of the time it takes around 10 seconds, sometimes more (with a good network). On mobile, it's even longer.

     

    I've tested all the plugins individually and besides Elementor (which shouldn't cause this much instability), they all perform fine. I've also switched to the vanilla WP theme so see if this was this issue, but nothing changed.

     

    I'm using Economy Hosting, which is for basic website, but I think it's sufficient for my needs since my website is not very large and has very little traffic.

     

    My list of potential causes has run out, so I've come here for help.

    "I'm using Economy Hosting, which is for basic website, but I think it's sufficient for my needs since my website is not very large and has very little traffic."

     

    I'm gonna have to say it's this, and here's why.

     

    Your on shared hosting at the lowest tier possible. The resources are shared across that server with others and you don't get a big piece of the pie at all. There are a lot of people on there and some abuse the resources on the server, many times unintentionally because they got malware somehow.

     

    The point is that you probably need to upgrade the hosting to something suitable for a business. I was taught that if you don't spend at least as much on your business every month as you do on your cell phone you're a hobby, not a business.

     

    The economy level hosting just isn't the right platform for you. Think of this as hosting for landing pages or personal blogs that don't see a lot of traffic. If you're using shared hosting, I would honestly suggest Ultimate at a minimum and move on from there.

    i would suggest you use wordpress plugin wp rocket and apply lazyload option for your images. it will improve your loading time and overall performance enhancement options are also available there .....like minimizing render blocking etc.....i already have applied these here..and have improved my speed not only in gtmetrix but in google speed test as well....
