Wow OP,
no URL to your site.
no speed stated now
no service provider at all stated, or is these your bare metal servers? IDK no URL told so can learn that. (I know how)

like mine.
I create a ticket there tell them to give me more bandwidth,
I pay and bingo, just 1 step, is this hard to understand.?

why not call your service provider and tell them what is the charge for more bandwidth.? no really. like everyone else does.
or is only YOUR PC slow and not the other 8 million, users.www

1. Use a Good Web Hosting Plan

It really all starts with choosing the right WordPress hosting plan with the right hosting company. Even before talking about speed, you must have a reliable company with solid and reliable hardware to host your website. If you site is unreliable, it doesn't matter how fast it performs. Visitors will run away and never come back. Do your homework and check out user reviews for hosting companies.
Getting back to speeding up your website, most hosting companies, such as Bluehost, offer a range of hosting plans, starting with inexpensive shared hosting and moving up through virtual servers, dedicated servers, and cloud servers. The prices increase as you move up through the different types of hosting, but the number of resources dedicated to your website also increase. While it is OK to begin with shared hosting when you are just starting your site, be sure to regularly track your traffic volume and resource usage so that you can upgrade to a better hosting plan before visitors start noticing your site being sluggish.

2. Enable Caching

Simply put, caching is the technical term for storing data in a temporary storage area. This improves a site's performance since a lot of a page's content is already prepared and available and does not need be fetched and processed in order to be displayed for a user. It also reduces the load of various system resources on your server.
We recommend you use the caching plugins provided by Bluehost, that are built to work best in that environment. You can find these cache settings in the performance page of the Bluehost plugin or WordPress section of the control panel.
If your site is not a WordPress site, enabling caching is more complex and beyond the scope of this article. In either case, you should discuss caching options with your hosting provider, since they will often have recommendations based on the optimizations they have implemented on their end.

3. Use a Content Delivery Network

Probably the next most effective way to speed up your website is to use a content delivery network. A CDN is a worldwide network of servers that allows you to duplicate and store your site's static elements/files (e.g. CSS, Javascript, images, documents, videos, etc.). These elements are then delivered to visitors from a server closer to their physical location. For example, if your website is hosted on a server in the U.S., visitors from other parts of the world will have to have to wait a (relatively) long time for your content to reach their browsers. With a CDN, that time is reduced dramatically, since the static content will be provided from a local server much closer to them instead of one from across the world.
Bluehost offers the TrueSpeed CDN inside the control panel.

4. Optimize Your images

As users come to expect higher quality images on websites, image size becomes more of an issue for page speed. Most images can be reduced in size using either graphic-editing tools or plugins without a web user noticing any reduction in quality.
Optimize Your Website's images With These 3 WordPress Plugins Here are the important things to remember:
    • Use JPEG format whenever possible. PNG is also fine. Avoid BMP and TIFF formats.
    • Crop your image to eliminate unnecessary elements and reduce size.
  • Resize your images. There is no point in uploading a 2000 pixel-wide image if your web page is only 600 pixels wide.

5. Minify HTML, JavaScript, and CSS

Today's websites and web applications are increasingly dependent on CSS and JavaScript, so it's important to reduce the size of these text files. Minifying them is a great way to do that. This basically means getting rid of comments, extra spaces, extra line breaks, and block delimiters in the code to in order to make your code lighter in size and reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred - thereby reducing the time it takes to load a page.
As you might expect, there is a selection of plugins for WordPress websites, such as WP Super Minify and Better WordPress Minify, which will automatically minify your code for you. If you need to do it manually, tools like the Closure Compiler or the set of minify tools at Dan's Tools can help. Also note that many CDNs and caching tools offer built-in minify support.

Testing and Digging Deeper

There is really a lot more to site optimization than what we've discussed here. However, these are five steps that will give you the "most bang for the buck." For those of you who want to learn more and/or further optimize your website, I'd like to leave you with a list of three popular performance analysis sites (all with very useful free versions). These tools will run a series of tests on your site to identify performance issues and direct you as to how to correct them.
Each of these sites will run different tests and display the results and scoring in different ways. They are generally easy to understand and offer clear explanations and suggestions.

Hello there are many ways to optimise your magento website:

  1. Enable Flat Categories and Products: One of the problems identified in the slowdown of Magento 2 sites had been the read speed of the database. If your Magento 2 store has a wide range of products, you are likely to face this problem more. To increase the read speed of your database, you should enable flat categories and products. By doing this, you can minimize the number of database joins done when it shows the products. It leads to the reduction of MySQL query complexity and your site's performance is improved.
  2. Merge CSS and JS Files: CSS and JS files are used to make your frontend look attractive but at the same time adversely affect the speed of your site. If you are using Magento 2, fortunately you have a way to tackle this without compromising the fancy display of your site. You can merge JS and CSS files to increase the speed of your Magento 2 site. To change the settings, go to backend and select 'configuration' from the 'stores' icon, and further open the 'developer' tab from the 'ADVANCED' header. Here, you need to change the JavaScript settings to 'Yes' for 'Merge JavaScript files' and 'Minify JavaScript files'. Similarly, go to CSS settings and opt 'Yes' for 'Merge CSS files' and 'Minify CSS files'.
  3. Use Full Page Cache: The power of full page caching lies in its ability to store the full page output in the cache. This decreases the server load for when consequent pages are loading.
  4. Image Optimization: n ecommerce store is full of images and banners for obvious reasons. To make sure that the images aren't affecting your site's performance, optimize them accordingly. The images that appear on the main site should be compressed for less data usage and easy page loads. While the product images should be in JPEG format, PNG and SVG format is recommended for logo and layout of your Magento 2 site.
  5. Reduce Server Response Time
  6. Choose the right Content Delivery Network
  7. Magento Updates
just check your inspect element on your browser when load the page and go the network tab and see column to get you know what files that have big size and cause your website be slow.
try to follow the google page insight recomendation :
·you too load many fonts file on your website (there are 6 fonts), please filter only font that you used.
·minify your css and js file that you used.
·merge your css and js file you can do this on the backend your website.
·optimize your image since I get .png file that have 1mb size (that size is too big for just one image)
·for slider image you can use jpg or jpeg format that have more little size instead using png file.
·enable gzip compression on your apache server, by follow this article
the most crutial things I think on the image and the fonts, js and css file. > 10 mb for load one page I thinks it's very not efficient.
Hope this helps
1.First I see in your slider, the images are so big and not optimized 1.80 Mo and so on, it's not good.
2.It depends to your server configuration.
3.Did you enabled the cache ?
4.You can also merge css, js (admin config)
5.Optimized custom code, check if you have optimized your custom code, exemple many loads, not optimized collections select, filters etc... foreach etc...

I need to know if the CPU speed can be increased to 1GHz or over and that I have put in 2 memory modules of 128MB onto it but only 128MB appears on the System Properties. Irvin.

You are confusing 2 things, CPU speed and Memory or Ram speed.

To keep things straight forward, cpu speed can only be increased by replacing it with a faster cpu.

Ram, as you can see, can be increased by adding faster ram modules.

Go to either of these websites:-

Enter *********** board details or request they scan your computer. Check all the information offered, they will tell you what type and how much ram your motherboard can use.

If you can't increase your ram speed to more that 1Gb, I would suggest it time to invest in a new motherboard/PC rather than spending more on RAM.

There can be a whole load of reason why your second stick of ram doesn't work.

1) it could be broken.
2) It could be the wrong type.
3) You may need to update your Bios to accommodate it. Though this is very unusual.

I am using 802.11b/g wireless lan. my signal


Increasing signal may increase speed, but getting closer to the router would yeild the same result iif that is going to work. You would do it by going to the management page for your router, and adjusting the "antenna" or "signal" strength to maximum.

On a linksys the default ip for that page is, on other routhers you can look it up in the paperwork or on the manufacturers website.

Hope this helps!!
