Cloudflare slow downs the speed of my website

Cloudflare slow downs the speed of my website i confirm this from my hosting provider. i think there was a problem in my cloudflare so i want that cloudflare employee check and resolve this issue.

May I ask how did you measure it?

Kindly, may I suggest to make sure your hosting provider allows Cloudflare IP addresses to connect to your (his) origin host / server IP just in case of some connection timeouts, etc. following below guide:

Nevertheless, Cloudflare IP addresses list can be found here:

Furthermore, before moving to Cloudflare, was your Website working over HTTPS connection?
If so, did you had an valid SSL certificate installed at your origin host / server which covers both your naked (root) domain any any other needed sub-domain like www, mail, etc.?

May I ask what SSL option have you got selected under the SSL/TLS tab at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain ( Flexible, Full, Full Strict … )?

I also see you are using W3 Total Cache and Cloudflare Page Rules with Cache Everything.

First time I openned your Website - slow, due to the slow PHP process generating the .html page which will be served to any later visitor for the next 1 hour (default by W3 Total Cache - see expires header and also you are using last-modified) despite the 24hours set (see max-age) at Cloudflare.

Next, after refresh, it got loaded very fast! (due to being served by a .html Page Cache + cached at the Cloudflare Edge)

Also, you are using Rocket Loader which helps with TTFB - which can be seen works fine.

HTML/CSS/JS is being minifed at the Cloudflare Edge as well as cached as images too.

Regarding the images, they are being also loaded by lazyload feature, which helps a lot and works good so far so good.

See my screenshot from below:

Unfortunately, I do not see any performance/slowness issue here.

You can always reach to Cloudflare support by writing a ticket:

now i choose (full) SSL/TLS option before it was on strict.

Brother please can you suggest me what to do to increase my website speed.
i saw reports on gtmatrix and page speed insights and it was really bad please suggest me something.

You just made your site insecure. Switch that back immediately.
