    It used to open quickly before, but not anymore. I had changed the template, but speed was still same.

    Who's fault it would be? The site's or server/host.

    • First try to use the default theme and then check the loading time.
    • If you have too many plugins activated then too the site can load slowly
    • Even one plugin can cause the speed to drop
    • If you have huge-sized graphics on the home page, then too... :)
    • If the homepage has too many items that can reduce the speed to a crawl
    • The database could have been loaded with unwanted things, or some part may have become corrupt
    • May be something is wrong in the php files including the fuctions.php
    • Use a good cache plugin or optimize plugin
    • Use a revision control plugin
    • may be the host needs to finetune the server...

    Anyway first try to use the default theme to test the speed...

    Also try doing the PC's Start (button) > CMD (dos window) > ipconfig /release (and then) ipconfig/renew , restart browser (and/or restart PC) and see if this works.

    could be both... lots of ways to improve speed... first run detailed speed test and it will also give you suggestions to fix it... lots of plugins like wp smushit, w3 total cache can improve your site's loading speed... Also need to check your server, ask host why your site slow they might help you in fixing this issue...
