    Exclamation Corporate site using Wordpress/Linux Hosting Pkg, Performance Questions

    I've posted tinyURL links and aliases because sitepoint has such great SEO that my posts here used to end up @ the top of google search lists for our company... we don't want that, lol.

    Our company develops a cloud-based (Software as a Service) Financial Performance Management software application for large companies. It was just deployed a couple days ago... TinyURL preview link click here

    I developed the site using a WordPress template from WooThemes. We are using a Linux-based hosting package with Network Solutions. Two sites run off of this hosting package, one is another site that we originally bought the hosting package for TinyURl preview link click here, and the other is our corporate site.

    The hosting package has a generic ftp address sued to manage both sites.

    Below is a more visual explanation and a question:



    Ok, now to the main point: Very regularly, site performance is terrible. The CSS of the corporate site validates, the XHTML contains few errors, there's not a lot of media, and the website analyzer reports a not-too-bad performance report. (compare the corporate site URL {not the tinyURL link} to its original theme which is locate at http://www.woothemes.com/demo/?t=14

    ... Pages hang regularly, though, and sometimes it takes up to 45 seconds to load a page.

    We're still in the process of compressing images, but when the site hangs it always says "waiting for www.thecorporatesites.url".

    SO... could the performance of the site at all be attributed to the way the hosting package has our two sites organized? .. or does that aspect of things look fine?

    Being a company that caters to CEOs and CFOs etc who don't have hardly any patience, load times are important. We've been asking Network Solutions to look into the performance problem, and they're being very slow in getting back to us.

    Any tips/comments? Sorry for the long winded post, but I'm not very well-versed in this facet of the site development.

    It's the hosting. Invest in VPS hosting so that your sites get dedicated resources instead of being packed on the same server with 500 others.

    Or just get better shared hosting. For the price of an entry level fully managed VPS (and even lower), there's some great hosting to be had.

    Kinda' says it all.
