I am feeling a bit frustrated here. One of the big reasons I got GeneratePress is because I read that it was supposed to be fast due to efficient programming. Speed was the number one factor for me when changing to GeneratePress. But again and again I am finding that my homepage loads slowly. I realize it’s not all due to the theme and a lot has to do with content also – but I have very little content on my homepage!
I did read some other topics on speed and downloaded a plugin called “Autoptimize”, but that made very little difference.
Could anyone please advise what specific steps I could take to increase my homepage load speed?!?

i ran a GT Metrix test on your site:
I see there are a lot of requests being made from a CDN – some of which are 0 bytes but never the less are eating up request time. And theres a lot of files being served from an FTP site.
First i would look at disabling the CDN as its not working correctly.
The FTP i assume was set up when the site was being developed but not everything was transfered over to your domain (?). You can try rebuilding URLS with a plugin like this:
If not your Host should be able to help with both of the above.
Once you got everything running from your own domain we can take another look.April 4, 2020 at 8:54 pm #1226913Taras
Okay David, thank you. Much appreciated. I will contact GoDaddy and let them know what you told me. I’ll be in touch.April 5, 2020 at 4:04 am #1227123DavidStaffCustomer SupportApril 5, 2020 at 10:35 pm #1228031Taras
Unfortunately my Host proved to be useless in helping me in any way. They are offering at $200 for speeding up the website, which is ridiculous.
Can you plese help? You said I should disable CDN – can you tell me how to do that?
When you say I should try rebuilding my URLs – are they broken? Could you elaborate.
If you feel my questions fall outside of your responsibilities, please let me know, but I am really hoping for some help here 🙁
Thanks again David.April 6, 2020 at 3:16 am #1228215DavidStaffCustomer Support
Unfortunately as its all server side issues we can’t provide any assistance. To start with each host will have a different server set-up.
Try google searching your host name and the terms
