I’ve used three website speed tests.
One thing that gets me dinged every time is
Reduce look up time from server. Reduce DNS look up times, “time to interactive”,
Root document took 1.4s, Reduce DNS lookups, 2596 msFirst Byte Time.
I believe these are all the same thing.
Network Solutions is my original host (they keep saying that Cloudflare is my host). I can’t figure out where the “lengthy” initial server response time is coming from (generally hovers around 1.4s).
Where is the bottleneck? How do I figure that out?
Could some of this be coming from my DNS record that still has a gray flag on it? I asked the question before and when I removed that record, my blog (not a subdomain) promptly stopped working.
Is this part of the issue?
I’m so sorry for just not getting this, but I’ve gone about as far as I can go on own. Could this be a “simple” as my Network Solutions servers are just slow?
So sorry I keep having to come back to the community, but I get lost in all of this very quickly.
Thank you in advance.
