    Use the W3 total cache plugin to speed up your site.

    Well, could be anything, I would start to make sure that your hosting has adequate resources, cpu, ram, connection. If hosting is fine than start looking at your site, db, implementation and so on.

    Changing your webhosting company is the only thing I can think of.
    when I look at the site It doesn't look like a site that should be slow. You don't have many pictures or big ones that should slow it down. If it's not the webhosting maybe it's the coding in the theme? But I'm no expert just guessing.

    Without looking:
    Install cache pluggin
    minify any javascript and CSS
    optimise images/get rid of them where you can

    If all this fails, change host

    Yes host makes up a lot of your speed. If you are on a server with many sites you will go slow no matter what you try so if your cpanel loads slow as well as your site switch hosts or ask to be moved to another server. Try a tools.pingdom.com speed test and see what is taking so long to load on your site I had a png header that was killing me changed it to a jpg to speed up one of my sites. Also run firebug in mozilla to see any console errors in JS or CSS. and then try to install the w3 plugin. I have heard that cloudflare works for some people I did not have a good experience with them so your mileage may vary.

    If its a wordpress site, theres a plugin called W3 Cache or something like that. Supposed to speed things up a bit. Also, check your bandwidth with your hosting. :)

    This isn't a troll post (surprisingly)...

    Listen to this guy. These basic steps will give you huge improvements.

    Also, if you use W3 total cache, make sure you set it up properly. PM me and I'll send you my setup, if you want.

    Your hosting company plays a huge role, I set my hosting up with a very reputable company and I haven't had to worry about speed yet.

    Load your css/js off a CDN site. Amazon S3 is really cheap and fast.

    If you are using Wordpress, W3 Total Cache Plugin is the answer to speed up the loading time for your site.

    A quality host (managed or VPS, nothing over shared), a CDN (maxCDN is good), a caching plugin, and wpsmush.it. Those should really speed things up.

    This is the first time that I've heard or read about the w3 cache plugin. Will definitely give it a try soon. Very thankful for this forum. I've really learned a lot just reading different threads. :)

    S3 is not a CDN, Cloudfront is. In fact, you can simply create a subdomain with all the assets and use it as the source for Cloudfront (no need for s3).
