Slow website; what's your take on this?

Thanks for responding. Yes, I have, automatically pre-loading every 24 hours.

I've made the following changes to the website this week:
  • Removed Google font;
  • Replaced Google Analytics script with the asynchronous one;
  • Added DNS prefetch;
  • Displayed often requested images inline.

Repeat views are now around half a second, but the first view can still be above 3 seconds:
Moscow: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140405_9X_49R/
Chicago: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140405_9R_49T/
Amsterdam: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140405_SM_49J/
Amsterdam: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/eDVFA6/h...ngcode.net

Since a lot of time is wasted with DNS lookup and TTFB, I asked Cloudflare what I could do about that. They referred me to their blog message which said TTFB is meaningless and also pointed to my hosting.

However, when I asked my hosting provider if there were any issues or performance bottlenecks on the shared server, they brushed that off as causing these slow first view times.

Luckily, the first view times have become better so it's not very troubling any more. PingDom RUM data is still somewhat troubling (for example, average page load from Canada above 6 seconds), so if anyone has a suggestion. Smile
