i had a coupon of ipage and paid $12 for an year, my domain is www.thenextrex.com since my blog is not making any money so i am not in a position to spend more on its hosting. my site takes 2 to 6 seconds. as per ipage, its normal in shared hosting plans. any suggestions what to do??? and as per some tests, it takes 2 to 3.5 seconds for the first bite to respond.
2-6 seconds a load time isn’t that bad!
It is normal with all share hosting packages unless you upgrade to a VPS. Your site is loading fine on my connection. I recommended some changes which you must apply in order to speedup the load time even more.
The first thing to do is to delete your cloudfare account and get rid of all such third part services that claim to speedup your site. Use free available plugins from the wordpress repository which works much better like WP super cache and WP-Optimize
