The Need For Speed!

Last Update: July 05, 2017

I had a problem with WordPress not being able to load a new site normally. In the process of WA Support solving that problem they told me about the WA Speed function. To join the Beta you need to go to https://my.wealthyaffiliate.co... and IN THE COMMENTS say that you would like to try the Beta.

Go to your site login and without logging in go to SitePlus+, click on that and then SiteSpeed and click "ON". Unlike cache programs, there is no setup.

I removed my cache plugin but you should deactivate any such plugins.

Here are my results:

With W3 Total Cache

From San Jose
6.27 sec. Faster than 24%. Grade ?
Dallas
1.72 sec. Faster than 76% . Grade 69
Stockholm
4.17 sec. Faster than 39%. Grade 70

With WA Speed from:

San Jose
1.3 sec. Faster than 83%. Grade 78
Dallas
897 ms. Faster than 91%. Grade 78
Stockholm
3.26 sec. Faster than 49%. Grade 75

Fantastic service from WA Hosting Support as usual!

I have a bunch of sites on WA hosting and have had them there from the time the hosting started. I never once in those years have had a site down.

The more I learn about WA hosting, the more impressed I become and the more grateful for having found it. I also have experienced terrific assistance from site support, when importing a working site from another host.

Gotta hand it to Kyle, Carson, and the WA hosting team. They rock! I noticed a bunch of speed changes after adding SiteSpeed, too.

Great! To solve my initial problem, I had to dump two new plugins. One was dumped because of the Beta and the other was an image compression plugin. It was taking for ever to publish or update a post. lol John

Looking at your results, using W3 cache would be better then?

I should have put commas after the loading times. The Beta is much faster. lol John

The initial problem was problems publishing files from this new site. I finally found that that problem was caused by a cashing program and a image compression program. John
