Improving First Byte Time

RE: Improving First Byte Time
Fair enough, but you lose out on quite few optimization possibilities on shared hosting. After all, there's only so much you can do within Magento to make it faster. Installing an opcode cache like eAccelerator or XCache would probably benefit you most of all, but requires root access to the server. Once the site is finished, you could consider turning on Magento's internal caching system. Have you browsed around for Magento optimization techniques? Enabling Flat Catalog and the Magento Compiler are two tips I ran across here. On a private server you'll also be able to place any rewrite rules directly into the Apache configuration, and turn off checking for .htaccess files on every page hit. If you stick to shared hosting, consider an extension like M-Turbo.

Another reason to switch to a private server (or a different host) is that HostGator does not support simple gzipping of your HTML, CSS and Javascript. On your homepage, this could cut off up to 371.8 KB (but it won't help decrease your TTFB).
