Hi guys. I’m new here and need some help form you veterans pretty please.
I recently move my website from staging static ip address to cloudflare domain registrar.
The hosting has NOT changed, no other changes have been made except few caching tweaks to speed the page painting.
20 or 30 speeds test i’ve done on static ip on gtmatrix showed anywhere between 1.0 -2.9 at most which is good, not ideal for 457kb website but it was reasonable and had room for improvement.
BTW even my static ip was pointing to dns of cloudflare and had CDN enabled. All good.
However after i’ve moved to domain registrar at cloudflare, also dns and cdn on cloudflare my website has slowed down terribly anywhere from 7-33 sec which is completely unacceptable for painting 457kb of website content that is one page and one contact page.
Something is very wrong here and it seems it is CDN or cache not working on Cloudflare.
I’ve purged everything from in cloudflare console to reflect changes i’ve made to the website.
Waited 24 hrs. I’ll wait 72 hrs but the number of posts of performance here tells it’s not that.
I have not done any minification cause when i tried it seems to break my website and actually slow it down. Have not tried yet Cloudflare CDN minification yet.
My website https://sebpctech.com/
Here are few gtmatrix results.
Static ip from Vancouver, Canada -1.3 sec paint
Static ip from London, UK - 2.0 secs paint
Static ip from Dallas, USA - 2.0 secs paint
First test from Sao Paulo, Brazil - 33sec.
So when i lookup the time dns lookup was 1.2 sec, SSL was 162ms…all reasonable for first time.
London, Uk test 32 secs
Pingdowm from Washington also terrible 27 secs
The google PageInsight page speed test is 67, D grade with speed index of 17.6 secs.
I am attaching screenshot of ALL my page speed test from gtmatrix to show contrast in paint speed.
I’ve went out of my to implement this solution of caching with cloudflare CDN plugin as well. No other cdn just cloudflare
There is tons of slow website speed searches here at cloudflare forum so what is solution resolve this?
I wanted to get my tiny 458kb website get under 1 second. That was the goal but 33secs is just unbearable.
What do i need to do to fix this cause there is something terribly wrong here?
If it’s something that i’m not doing or doing wrong please let me know. What bugs me is that on static ip it was good, now it’s bad and i wanted to go to excellent so this is frustrating. Thank you in advance.
