Just a quick note that we have moved all website clients to Siteground. Our other host Hostgator had an ongoing speed issue that we could not wait to have corrected after going back and forth with their support for 2 weeks.
We have been building websites for a long time and know well the importance of having a website load quickly – Marcia Childs
The issue came down to a slow server response time. Typically well under 1/2 a second, our clients were seeing server response times over 8 seconds. A few clients let us know that they were justifiably very unhappy to see their website load slowly.
“Marcia we love the website but its very slow.”
So I called again and talked to a fairly knowledgeable and maybe a bit to open member of their staff who surprised me with his answer.
So let me ask this – a 3 second server response time is within normal range? His answer – Yes it is.
Well I was not very happy to hear that. Not least because each website takes about 3 hours to move from server to server.
But after a lot of work and a long weekend, all of the websites have been moved to Siteground, a highly recommended WordPress host. We have tested the speeds of all websites using Google’s page speed insights test. We are very very happy with the speeds delivered by Siteground along wity its great support.
We appreciate your business and your patience while we dealt with this issue.
