I have a big problem with a bad performance on my blog on WordPress, significantly large web page downloads, using pingdom load time is 60 seconds.
I have this bad performance not only with the pages that every user can see. I have bad performance using my dashboard on wp-admin, too. And I have used
different computers on different locations to access it but it is always slow.
I need your help in order to know the cause of this problem.
I have the Blog pdm.com.co running on WordPress 3.5.1
Site Address: http://pdm.com.co/
WordPress Address is on a subdirectory below pdm.com.co
I have 27 pages, 55 posts, 10 categories, 317 tags.
Theme Twenty Twelve with 17 widgets. I use Permalinks
My Front Page on WordPress shows the latest 10 posts, each one shows a summary.
Plugins (with latest versions):
Better WordPress Recent Comments
Easy Contact Forms
Google Analytics for WordPress
NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster
Social Media Widget
Special Recent Posts FREE Edition

I have my hosting running on Netfirms.com
Platform Type: Debian
Perl Version: 5.8.8
Disk Usage: 7.8 GB
I started to use WordPress for my blog last April 21st. Before I was using Microsoft FrontPage 2003 on the same hosting. It was running ok with good performance before April 21st.
I have migrated to WordPress the majority of the pages, copyng its content to pages on WordPress. The "posts" on Frontpage were not migrated. For that reason I have 55 posts only.
When i had the content of those pages ready, I have migrated to WordPress, using the article:
Keeping WordPress Address on a subdirectory
I use the plugin Redirection to manage 301 redirections and keep track of 404 errors.
I have 60 redirections to manage the original html files, from pages on MS FrontPage, that i have deleted to go to the replacement pages on WordPress.
All of them defined like:
Origin URL: /software_gratuito.htm
Target URL: /software-gratuito/
Including the main page on my site on MS Frontpage
Origin URL: /index.htm
Target URL: /index.php
I am not very skilled of this management of redirections, so if you see serious problems that are causing slowdowns, I appreciate your suggestions.
I have made the following steps in order to try to eliminate this bad performance:
I have deactivated all of the plugins and then try to access my site front different browsers, but the problem kept on.
I have disabled the widgets that I think could cause it, but the problem kept on.
I have used the plugin WP-Optimize trying to optimize my database tables, but the problem kept on.
I have used Sucuri SiteCheck online utility http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/ trying to find malware but the security report says that there are not threats found, status Verified Clean. And the bad performance kept on.
I have used the pingdom utility http://tools.pingdom.com/ in order to analyze my site and find bottlenecks, It was executed after midnight with low traffic
with all plugins and widgets enabled. it shows that from 60 seconds trying to load pdm.com.co, 47.58 seconds keeps on the file http://pdm.com.co/, it shows on this one:
DNS 79 ms
Connect 156 ms
Send 0 ms
Wait 47.27 seconds
Receive 76 ms
Total 47.58 seconds
The main suggestions that pingdom does are:
Leverage browser caching
Remove query strings from static resources ( I do not know how to verify this, but remember that it is new blog on WordPress, I just started to learn WordPress and I am not a developer)
Specify a cache validator
With 47 seconds trying to load my new blog I believe that these suggestions are not going to fix the main problem. But I appreciate your insights about it.
When it says that waits for 47.27 seconds to load pdm.com.co the problem is with my hosting provider? or SQL database, or WordPress or ?
( I have the output of pingdom utility but I do not how to attach the 3 jpg files to this topic, for your analysis)
I need your help in order to know where the problem is and how to fix it.
Thank you for your help, in advance.
