Sites slow down with cloudflare

I noticed with cloudflare on, my site slows down. Gtmetrix shows 12-18seconds

And without cloudflare, site loads fast. Gtmetrix shows 5-8 seconds

Where I am wrong ?

It could be that your server is rate limiting Cloudflare connections. You didn’t post a domain name, so that’s my best guess.

domain name is

thevc ap.com

The Cloudflare portion of your site loads very quickly after static resources are cached. At worst, then HTML takes ~700mS, which isn’t bad since it has to pull this from your origin server.

A lot of the Zoho resources slow the site down, taking 1-2 seconds each.

Where is your server located?

I use VPS from hetzner.com Regarding server location I have to check it with my developer

I will try disabling Zoho
