[split] Improving First Byte Time - uniqfree - 07-02-2013 08:27 PM

I also got F for "First Byte Time". My site http://www.uniquefree.com/ now hosted on a shared hosting, not a dedicated server to have a lot of Memory (Ram), how to get A point when hosted on a shared hosting ?

thanks

Not all shared hosting is created equal but it is VERY hard to get high performance for a dynamic site on the cheap shared hosting providers because the way they get the costs down so low is to WAY over-subscribe their servers. Some of the better shared hosting providers use ssd's and tune the servers for various platforms and have mid-range offerings for high performance without going all the way to a dedicated server (WP Engine for wordpress hosting for example).

Thanks for your reply. I may transfer my website to a new HP who provide the SSD in near future.
