How to Reduce Time to First Byte WordPress?
Time to first byte WordPress. How important is TTFB and do you include TTFB as one of the factors to determine if the hosting plan is right for you?
I have struggling to improve my TTFB, I have noticed that my two sites on the same server have different TTFB, the first one is HTTPS enabled and the second one is HTTP only. The first has 272 ms average TTFB, while the second is at 52 ms average.
Because HTTPS is mandatory, I am looking for any advice on how to improve SSL speed in TTFB or something similar.
Regarding TTFB and DNS lookup speed. I was told that DNS speed is also vital for TTFB. So I checked and saw that my nameserver are pretty slow, like 130ms. Cloudflare nameserver for instance is like 10ms. So is it ok to say that moving nameservers to Cloudflare will save 120ms TTFB?
Time to first byte WordPress
I’ve been designing websites with Divi for almost 2 years now. I use the WPMUDEV pro tools to optimize, upkeep, and monitor the sites, including Hummingbird for site speed. For the life of me, I can’t get the time to first byte time under the 1 second (which is ages, in Google terms).
I’ve tried alternative tools, like W3 total cache and WP Fastest cache (not together, obviously) to see if I could reduce that. Everything else aces ate webpagetest.org, just the TTFB is always a D or worse.
