Performance down?

This thread is open.

Is it just my internet connection or performance of the site is down, recently?

The new hosting is located in Chicago, whereas the old hosting was in Sheffield. This means that for us Europeans (I'm making an assumption that you're in Europe from your time zone setting), it is slower as page requests and data have to travel over the Atlantic. This is particularly true when it's peak time for Internet use over there (or over here). I've noticed the slowdown too, it's not ideal but everything comes at a price.

I'm coming from California, and I've noticed it's slower too, just as a random btw.

Oh - well maybe it is a generally slower host then. I had assumed the slowness I had noticed was just down to the hosting location being physically further away.

Actually now that I think about it more, the latency is really intermittent. Sometimes it's really speedy... but other times it feels like there is a database or CPU bottleneck somewhere.

It's as fast as before about 85% of the time, and very slow the other 15%. (in California)

It seems slower to me - however as the data being transferred is not that much I would have the speed issues are due to the host rather than the internet.

But on the other hand a traceroute seems to get lost so there could be routing problems
