6-8 seconds for CloudFlare to load first byte


#1

I have read many articles stating to not worry about first-byte load, but my site speed is 10-17 second after enabling cloud flare.

When bypassing Cloudflare the origin is also extremely slow to respond. Since we don’t cache html by default we have to retrieve the html page from the origin and if it’s slow we can’t really fix that. Is this a dedicated server or is this on shared hosting?

It is shared hosting


#4

Is there anything I can do to fix this?


#5

If it’s a WordPress site, install the Comet Cache plugin.

Does the home page have dynamic content?
