I have a server that is based in Europe serving a few sites (all running on the same php application and using the same DB).
Current client base who access these sites are in both Europe and Australia. In Australia I am getting about 2.8 to 3 seconds for first response, and I believe it is similar in Europe (based on pingdom etc).
I am using cloudflare dns and caching (standard level). I would have expected it to be much faster than it is. Any ideas?
