Use this and find out how many hops between you and your server and will show any bottlenecks also – then you can see if it’s your connection, the hops between you and your server or at your server farm.

Looking from my location I see many hops at the end coming to your server at he.net – also your DNS server lookup is terrible on speed – are you letting your host do your DNS settings? If so place that back to your domain registrar.

Hope that helps

Jonathan

I’m thinking about the MediaTemple

Think again! :)

I was on a (mt) (gs) for two years now, then i felt the need to change, because the site’s were not loading fast enough. I mean, they were fast, but not fast enough. I’ve tried their (dv) service, but that wasn’t fast either, and it was a bit hard to configure for a noob like me.

Then i’ve tried digitalocean.com which is a fast unmanaged SSD VPS, but when i saw myself(the noob) with nothing i concluded that it was too hard for me to learn how to setup my own server.

Then i’ve tried wpengine.com, which had the best speed from what i’ve ever seen(for wp sites). But the price was high and there are a lot of things that i do not like about it(it is mainly for wp and it has a lot of limitations about which i don’t want to talk here, and it’s also a bit hard to setup at first)..

So at the end, after searching a while on Google, i found asmallorange.com, which has a managed SSD VPS starting at only $30! When i’ve tested their speed, it was better than wpengine without any wp caching(which wpengine uses heavily for speed optimizations). And above all, it has cPanel, which for me(the noob) it has the essential!

So at incredible speed + cPanel + low price($30-50 / month depending on your needs), i say that “A Small Orange” is a gem.. :)

MediaTemple is ok, but not top notch when it comes to speed. I use it for personal projects and host my templates there.

I heard good things about Rackspace, you might give it a try. I use myself Bluehost for my worst clients, so make your own conclusions. :)

Yeah. Cheap clients, cheap hosting. They get what they pay for. I also couldn’t find a better use for it, so I guess that’s good enough. :smitten:

Switch to digitalocean a month ago it was really fast, but as ruben said is quite hard to setup my own server, even now I can’t upload files through FTP due to permission issue :P.
