Support » Fixing WordPress » Reduce Yellow Part (Wait) Server Response And FontAwesome Size?

  • Dear All

    I’ve optimized my site and I got A score. I know that A score is more than enough. But I still curious because my site (with only 7 requests and 200kb size) load time is about 2 seconds. There’s many sites out there with bigger requests and size than my site that load time is below 1 second.!/ePNFvW/

    If I check it on Pingdom, the most slowing my site is the yellow part (wait) on the first server response and FontAwesome load (75kb). My site now hosted on managed cloud hosting, Cloudflare integration, Cloudinary image CDN, Autoptimize, and 12 another light plugins.

    Is there a way to reduce the yellow part (wait) on the first server response? And how to reduce FontAwesome size? Because I need FontAwesome for social media icon only.

    There are quite a number of things you can do to speed up your websites loading time. I ran another test from GTMetrix, and it shows you have done most everything code and site wise set up pretty well.

    I see you are running Plesk with nginx as the webserver, but are you using anything server side like Memcache, Varnish, or Redis perhaps? Do you use nginx caching? Have you spoken with your host to see what other performance options they can offer?

    Another good troubleshooting step you can try is to create a simple HTML page in your document root, and test that specifically to see the servers actual response on Pingdom and GTMetrix, and the difference between that, and your current tests TTFB will show what time it takes for your site to process PHP and MySQL requests.

    Hopefully the information I have given helps,

    I know that I got 100 score on GTmetrix. But it’s weird that load time is almost 2 second for my site that has 7 requests and 200kb size only. I use LiteSpeed from my origin hosting. And I think Nginx is from Cloudflare.
