    Hello Everyone:),

    I have a standard shared hosting account and it hosts 14 of my sites. 12 of them were very light 10 post MNS. Remaining two are eCommerce sites running on WordPress. MNS get minimal traffic, eCommerce sites get average traffic. My sites use very low resources.

    Normally site loads in 3 seconds. But when the sites didn't get traffic (idle) for some half hour then load time increases upto 18-25 seconds. After the first access it will load in 3 seconds again.

    I tried using W3 Total Cache, W3 Super Cache with aggressive settings but it did reduced 3 second normal load time to 2 seconds but the access after idle is still 18-25 seconds.

    Tried cloudflare, No help. Finally moved 12 of my sites MNS to static HTML, now they are loading in 3 seconds.

    But other two eCommerce sites are still running in WordPress and facing the slowdown.

    Any one have idea of what causing this slowdown ?
