How can I improve the response time of the server?

My website is running on the GoDaddy server so the site takes 0.6 seconds to load, but generally takes 0.2 seconds. So I want to reduce my server response time from 0.6 seconds to 0.2 seconds. Please help me on this.

Hi @brucebrown1a and welcome to the forums.

If you run your site through any of the numerous online “Web Page Speed Tests” most all will give you the page loading time and many will give help on how to improve the performance.

Here are two to play about with:

Chances are, if you are finding a host like GoDaddy to be slower at some points of the day than others, you are probably on a host that has several larger sites / is a bit overloaded.

If you are that bothered you are probably better looking for a host that will give you a more guaranteed / dedicated set of resources and less likely to overload servers. (GoDaddy does have a bit of a reputation for cramming things onto hardware)

You are talking about the server response time, that is not under your control. It depends on the type of server that you are using.

Basically you can use tool httpstat.
You can look a site loading by steps and improve the most of slowly parts
