Guidance on Speed Improvements

RE: Guidance on Speed Improvements
1) Well, my question is how do I increase the speed of my website?

It appears your site is running on some sort of shared or VPS or VM type system.

If you require faster speed, them move to dedicated hosting.

You're running WordPress, so look into someone who works with WordPress daily.

For my WordPress client sites, I test both single transaction speed + load speed (time required to handle 1,000,000 page views).

Your site's already running faster than most, so you'll likely require paying far more for hosting.

Although you are using SingleHop (shudder), so you might end up paying must less for faster hosting.

2) And what CDN service do you recommend? other than CloudFlare and KeyCDN.

Don't use a CDN, as this will rarely fix any site speed issue + add many layers of additional complexity you'll end up wrestling with on a daily basis.

The first step I take with all new WordPress clients is strip out all cruft code - NGINX + Varnish + Squid + HAProxy - so there's no cruft code between Apache + visitors.

Straight up Apache + PHP can easily deliver 1,000,000+ requests/minute (with no cruft code) when running in a well tuned runtime environment.
