    I’m hoping you have some advice on why my site is so slow, especially on mobile, where I am seeing “time to interactive” speeds of over 10 sec.

    Both frontend and backend seem slow, and it does seem to vary quite a bit from day to day. This made me think that it could partially be a hosting issue? Or is that unlikely? (I’m on Veerotech.)

    I’ve been experimenting with turning off various plugins, but nothing seems to make much difference according to various speed tests. I have Litespeed Cache, but honestly it isn’t giving me that much of a time boost. Although the site is image-heavy, my images are optimized.

    Here’s the site:

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hi there,

    I ran your site through GTMetrix and the result is actually decent:

    I then checked your site on my phone and it loads pretty fast as well.

    Where are you getting the 10 seconds load time?

    This many images can definitely add to the site’s load time regardless if they are optimized or not.

    The quality of your host and PHP version you are using also plays a big factor in your load time as well.

    On Google pagespeed and also from users in the Western US on mobile.

    I’m in Whistler (Western Canada) and the load time is pretty fast to me.

    If you want to get to the bottom of the issue, then try disabling all plugins and do another test, then activate them one by one and see if a certain plugin is causing some issues.
