    What's up eveyone?
    So, ive been working hard on my new blog for a month researching, building a strategy, writing articles.. And now when I started to check my site's speed, it's horrible.
    Please I need your help I someone can take a look and see whats the problem: www.silly-hat.net
    Do you think it has to do with my hosting server (mochahost)?

    Damn that is slow and it doesn't even have content on it yet. You on shared hosting?

    But this is probably indeed a problem with your hosting.

    On my phone so can't check so much but how big is the photo in your header? Did you smushed it?

    Your site has a bad score also
    https://gtmetrix.com/reports/silly-hat.net/yMyN9YuR

    Needs many improvement. Not that I think it will make a huge difference for you but start with installing W3TotalCache plugin and Google the best settings.

    For future plans, don't use hyphens in your domain name.

    I've also run your website through pingdom and sucuri speed tests, it's bad, try optimizing your website first and if it still is bad it's definitely your hosting.

    OP, I know you want help but putting your URL up in front of everyone is not a smart idea. Try to cut down on some wordpress plugins

    Use EWWW plugin (free) to crush those images.
    Use W3 Total Cache to help with the expires headers.
    I would dump that massive background image as it really doesn't do much for your design.

    1 full second of your load time though is waiting on your host to respond to the initial connection request. You can try using Cloudflare to see if that helps, but it probably won't.

    I optimaized the W3 total cache settings,
    Can you see the difference now?
    If I won't have a choise I'd get an expensive hosting :/
    Although it's not for my budget now

    Are you using CloudFlare?

    Usually, sites with CDN shows lower metrics in page speed tests.

    However, install these plugins:

    WP Smush

    Autoptimize or Hummingbird

    Remove query strings from static resources

    WP Optimize

    WP Super Cache

    Gzip Ninja Speed Compression

    Add this to your htaccess via FTP or via the plugin HTACCESS editor:

    Code:
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    ExpiresActive On
    ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType text/html "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType application/javascript "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
    ExpiresDefault "access 1 month"
    </IfModule>
    After that check the page speed in google and download the images it will suggest putting. However, check them 1st.

    So I checked your IP, it has 2,862 domains on that IP so that means you are on shared hosting, I also googled your hoster as I never heard of them and the reviews are not great, I would switch my ass to VPS hosting.

    I host my own sites for $14,- a month, haven't even optimized them yet and have more content and they are already faster than yours.

    Did some tests again, it's a lot faster now.

    First steps:
    minify everything
    use inline styling for above the fold content
    shrink images where you can
    get rid of junk code
    cache - varnish for files, memcache for SQL

    Further down the road:
    Move to PHP7
    Move to HTTP2 (with a GOOD SSL, free ones are slow)
    You could use the AMP.js library and pick out the bits that work for you...

    Just a heads up but the Google page speed tool doesn't actually measure page speed.

    Its not all about his hosting

    Google tell us that his server response time is good

    Reduce server response time
    Your server responded quickly. Learn more about server response time optimization.

    The GTMetrix waterfall said otherwise. It showed that it took over 1 second for his server to respond to the initial get request.

    I agree with most that you said however, I'm running a free SSL on all my websites and still have speed and A A on GT metrix.
    Correct, it's also tweaks but believe me, his host sucks.

    @OP
    Check this
    https://gtmetrix.com/reports/www.silly-hat.net/d14TKdwF
    As you can see, bad score, just google very thing that has a low score and how you can improve that setting, this for me was the best way to learn for future projects and now all my websites are AA.

    Website speed is hugely important. I've read a study recently that dlowijg down your webpage speed by 1 second results in 25 percent decrease in conversion rate

    You should change hosting.

    Do you know if you are running a SSL without HTTP2 you've actually made your website slower due to how HTTP checks the SSL?

    Also, no. There are different grades of SSL.

    Free SSL's complete a number of handshakes before the connection is established as the SSL chain will be much longer than "better"/premium SSL certificates which complete this process much quicker.

    That's not entirely true all of the time though... but yeah it's generally better to be faster.

    Amazon ran an experiment where they actually slowed down certain parts of their site and improved conversion. I saw this at measurecamp, I'll try and find the deck.

    The facebook "like" button has an inbuilt delay as when it worked instantly users were clicking it multiple times as they didn't think it was working.
