Site Performance Issues

Using an external monitoring service, I'm finding the performance of my hosted WP Sites to be atrocious, as much as 6 second responses for the daily average. The site doesn't get that much traffic.  And, it varies greatly.  I don't have many plug-ins, and use WP Smush to optimize images.


I firmly believe it's a problem in how Godaddy overloads its servers with too many shared sites.  


I use alternatives to Godaddy (like Inmotion) for other clients and have no performance problems with them.

I'd recommend you to use cloudflare, and see if that helps.

It does in my case:


However, I think you should contact support to see if they can help you.


Hope it helps!
