Hello everyone,
A couple of days ago I noticed that the load time for my website is getting slower than it used to be. I kept checking it everyday and it seems to be getting slower everyday. My site has recently experienced an increase of traffic. Could this be the reason? and how can I fix this?

hi there,

If the increase of traffic is the only recent thing that happened to your site then the solution could be upgrading to VPS hosting. Virtual Private server (VPS) is used for websites with high volume traffic.It also gives more security,stability and better response time.

Try removing any images, files, videos and flash that you don't need.
