High TTFB in India for APO Enabled Website

Domain: https://gadgets.shiksha
Hosted at: Digital Ocean Bangalore
APO: Enabled {16 Days Completed}
Cache Everything: ON
Edge TTL: 1 month
Browser TTL: 1 year

Why my website has a very high TTFB in India, while it is very fast in USA?

Even I face the same thing but believe that those things will get sorted out as APO is a new product in continuous development.

It is 400ms TTFB once the page is cached, not too bad IMO https://www.webpagetest.org/result/201020_DiR4_738481f61da93f039642dc95275ad048/

@kunal.desai1 Thank You
@yevgen Thank you

Will the expire headers render the best possible result, or I need to make some changes to meet the APO requirement?

My website URLs have .html at the end

If you run “Cloudflare for Wordpress” plugin you don’t need to setup any additional configuration on your server.

Unless you’re on Cloudflare Enterprise plan, due to bandwidth costs/peering CF free, pro to some extent business plans won’t route to CF Indian datacenters and more likely route to Singapore. You can check CF-Ray header’s datacenter 3 letter code in your response headers to see which datacenters you are routed to.

This would not usually be related to APO specifically. Have you compared APO cached WP TTFB vs non-APO CF cache everything page rule’s TTFB to see ?

Test with webpagetest.org to compare the 2. I wrote a guide for WPT at https://community.centminmod.com/threads/how-to-use-webpagetest-org-for-page-load-speed-testing.13859/

Yes Sir…you were right…the high TTFB was due to the local caching plugin…I deactivated it…now TTFB is around 100-ms in USA and less than 20-ms in India…Thank you once again.

Thank you.
