    Hey guys. So the title pretty much sums up the problem that I'm having. This has been the case ever since i bought the domain and hosting a few months ago. I host with GoDaddy by the way. I did some research on this and apparently a whole bunch of people are not happy with GoDaddy loading times. Apparently it has to do with their servers being overcrowded or something? I'm sure you know better than I do..

    Anyway, yeah, am i allowed to leave a link here? I want to see how long it takes my site to begin loading for other people.

    But yeah, what is my best option here? I guess switching hosting companies?

    Ok, it's http://www.paid-surveys-reviews.com

    It's really annoying that it takes so long to load because i'm pretty sure that i lose a lot of visitors because of that. People might just assume that the site is down or doesnt work or something..

    Just had a look, It's load time on my pc is 1.5 seconds. Maybe GoDaddy have fixed the issue?

    Hm, it takes both of my computers around 4-5 seconds to load it every time. I did suspect that maybe it's just something that has to do with me and my connection, so that's why i want to see how long it takes other people to load the site.

    It's always the initial loading process that takes so long for me. When i'm already on the site, jumping between pages takes no time at all.

    Try clearing your Internet browser cache and see what happens there. Who's your ISP?

    When i'm using my university connection, it's really damn fast. To be honest, i don't know who the provider is.

    Right now im in Florida and i'm on Atlantic Broadband.

    I'll try clearing my cache when i'm on my laptop. My netbook is pretty slow and every site takes a while to load so i wouldn't be able to accurately tell you how effective that was..

    Ah you may be running under the EagleNet Infrastructure.

    By the sound of it, its probably your netbook, I had that issue before then I bought an alienware laptop,now I realise it was definitely my netbook causing the issue.

    I am using my phone right now...hooked up to my 6mbps DSL via wifi.
    Anyway, it took about 7 seconds before it even began loading. All other sites i visit on my phone load within 1-2 seconds. Im going to take a look on my PC and tell you exactly what the problem is
