hi for the past two weeks my site in2town.co.uk has been very slow. my normal speed is 1.2s to 1.8s but for the past two weeks it is jumping from 3s to 8s.
I am on cloud pro service. my hosting company is saying cloudflare is causing me problems. they are saying that when they test my site without using cloudflare it is faster.
I am not very technical. this has only been happening for the past two weeks. i have not made any changes to my cloudflare but are my hosting company making excuses or is cloudflare for some reason not working properly for my site
WordPress behind, so I wonder if your hosting package can handle requests, neither by not nowing your PHP settings, etc.
You are also using a Pro Plan as it seems to me (jpeg are served as webp)
May I ask have you tried enabling Minify ptions for HTML, CSS and JS at Cloudflare dashboard?
How about Rocket Loader option too?
You have some setInterval and timeout issues in your tagdiv_theme.min.js file too.
Too much of them I get.
Seems to me like it’s checking for my screen/window width to change/adpot the layout and CSS styles.
Some strange request blocking something: GET https://www.in2town.co.uk/undefined -> 404
And in terms of WordPress, you are not using any of the plugins for Page Cache at least, so each time the server has to generate it and serve it to your webpage visitor, rathar than just grab the cached one and serve it in a less than a second.
While the setup of them can me messy sometimes, may I rather suggest you trying out the great Cloudflare APO for WordPress, at least for a month for testing purposes:
Once I enabled Rocket Loader, I saw improvment in better webpage load time, which usually reffers to to decrease the “Time to First Byte (TTFB)”.
There is also a thing, you could experiment a bit using Cloudflare Page Rules in terms of Caching (Browser Cache TTL, Edge Cache TTL, Cache Level …) and improving your webpage load time.
For WordPress, there are known to be three of them, for example I use below 3 Page Rules on one WordPress Website (using a plugin for serving a .html Page Cache - which Cloudflare caches) using Free plan (the needed cache headers are set on the origin host / server):
