    I've just tested speed of my website and it loads very fast...except xmlrpc.php file. I read that it is used only for some remote functions and that it can be deleted, however, I am not sure if this is 100% true?

    Load time of the file is 20 seconds...so I'd love to remove it!

    Are you using pingbacks or remote posting? If not, it should be safe to remove. You can always reupload the file if it affects your site.

    Yep, if you aren't using your WP remotely or pingbacks you can delete the file without any worries, or simply rename it like DSASDqwdqede3er.php and you are done :)
