Why your wordpress site is slow

These are the 3 main reasons for a slow wordpress site or website in general:

  • Slow hosting
  • Sow hosting
  • and yes…Slow hosting

While other factors like too many ads, too many http-requests, too many unoptimized images, unclean javascript or other code errors maybe an influence to your website’s performance, bad/slow hosting is the main cause why your website or blog is slow.
