Q: Chris, our website loads very slowly. Actually, everything we do on the internet is slow lately.
We host our website with SiteGround, as you recommend, but something doesn’t seem right?
A: If you are hosting your website with SiteGround the slowness is not likely to be SiteGround. SiteGround hosting is very good and many of my clients host their websites there without a problem. Maybe the problem is your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Have you tested your local connection to the Internet? This would be the first thing I test.
You can test the speed of your ISP connection for free at any of these internet speed test providers.
I like to run three separate tests from three different providers and average the results.
Another reason to do this is to make sure you are getting what you are buying from your local internet service provider.
If you are paying for high-speed access to the Internet make sure you are getting what you pay for.
Here is what the results from an internet speed test typically look like.
