    Delay in loading site pages

    We recently started to experience a noticeable delay when loading pages of our Web site. The delay is almost always exactly 12 seconds before the page begins to download, when first accessing any page at the site or when loading another page after waiting at least 20 seconds. The status shown in Opera is "Sending request to ...". In addition, the pages load very slowly, usually less than 1 Kb/s on a 56K modem. However, if loading another page within less than 20 seconds of loading the last page, there is no delay and the download speed is more in the normal range for the speed of the connection.

    We are on a shared server, but it is not crowded. At least one of the other sites on the same server loads just fine. So, this delay seems to be particular to our site. We haven't made any changes recently, but our Web hosting service added a block for the IP address of a spider that was hammering us. Could this block be the cause of the delay and slow download speeds? Any thoughts on other possible causes?

    It's not a problem on your end, the best advice I can give you is to contact your host about this. Whenever my site is having problems (rarely), I get my host on top of it and it's usually fixed.

    I did contact them, but they've been working on it for two days now with no change. It's a small company and they are very good to us, but I'm not sure they always know what they're doing. They seem to be learning on the job sometimes.
