    Hi... I was wondering if anybody could offer some advice on speeding my website up. I've done a number of things like optimizing image size, etc. But nothing has helped so far.

    I'm using Godaddy as a server and would be fine spending more and switching if that would be a solution.

    Thank you... my site is:

    Also.. I just read in a related thread that changing your operating system in Godaddy helped. The example was a linux person who had a windows o/s. I have a Mac.. and just saw that I'm set up with a linux o/s on Godaddy. I've changed it... not sure if I'm seeing a difference.. but could be cookies, etc...

    Have you looked at cacheing plugins like W3 Total Cache?

    Yes... it didn't seem to change that much...

    If you're thinking that using a Mac is the issue, it's not; your Mac/PC has absolutely no relation to the web server OS. GoDaddy's linux servers are better than WIndows, but overall, the problem is GoDaddy. See Recommended WordPress Web Hosting

  6. @SongDogTech: The majority of websites will run fine on GoDaddy if they are somewhat optimized.

    @mossanimal: What's your website? Have you read http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Optimization? There's quite a bit that can be done to optimize. You may also want to investigate the set up your hosting provider is using.
