    Extremely Slow TTFB, by ivanchibi

    Hi, currently I’m using Bluehost’s Cloud – Performance plan. The main problem is both my sites have extremely slow TTFB (Time to First Byte). I checked using bytecheck online tool, the TTFB is always more than a second and even around 2 seconds


    As you can see the slowest part is ‘Wait’. I’ve tried to disable some plugins but no effect on TTFB.

    I also use P3 Plugin Performance Profiler plugin for checking slow plugins.



    Clearly the plugins are pretty fast and even the site loads below 0.5 second.

    TTFB above 1 second is a really big problem because it can affect SERP. Especially considering most other competitors’ TTFB about 0.5 second or even less. Other people say they can get about 0.5s using WordPress on Bluehost.

    I’ve contacted Bluehost support but they say I have to optimize my site. As they suggest, I’ve run repair and optimize query on database and also run wp-optimizer plugin. But no effects at all.

    Is there any recommendations what should I do?
