    My website is extremely slow and sometimes says "Service Unavailable".

    How can i speed this up? I am using a Nero theme if that helps.

  2. (1) Who is your hosting provider?
    (2) What plugins do you have installed?
    (3) Are you using a caching plugin like 'Quick-Cache'?
    (4) What is your websites URL?

    1) Register.com

    2) Custom Header Images, Customize WP-admin, Image Widget, Mail Subscribe List, Membership, Membership Simplified

    3) I had one installed, but got a fatal error message. Had to get memory upgraded via hosting. Removing the plugin actually helped speed it up. Maybe there is a better one. I don't remember what it was called.

    The caching plugin was called "W3 Total Cache"

  5. Thanks for the information. I'd recommend installing the Quick-Cache plugin. It's very light and works great. If you are still having speed issues I'd recommend looking into a higher quality WordPress hosting provider.

    I've tried testing the site here as well...

    http://tools.pingdom.com/

    It gives more stats. Anything stand out to you there?

    Anything you see is much appreciated.

  8. Honestly at your speeds it really comes down to your hosting provider. [moderated]

  9. @Patrick Nommensen: these forums are not for soliciting work or hosting business or referrals, as per the Forum Rules

  10. @songdogtech -- I never shared any specific information related to my services on this forum for this reason.

    Edit: Also, on the link you provided there's no mentioning of what you said -- I just assume this b/c it's good practice. Perhaps that can be revised next weekend at WCSF Contributor Day.
