On both my sites which I utilize Cloudflare no matter how much I tweak the sites for fast loading using speed tests, I am getting this initial long load time. It kind of is outweighing the other benefits, and I would like to resolve the matter.
It occurs both in loading my http and then during the redirect to https, and the total kills my initial load time.
I am using Wordpress, and a plugin called “Really Simple SSL” to facilitate the redirect to SSL.
I can’t say for certain that this is plugin isn’t causing the issue, but my domain register thought it didn’t have to do with my initial DNS records and may be something somehow with Cloudflare.
