I understand, first time byte is a tricky subject since it depends on lot of factors.I am trying to optimize the code as much as I can for this site This site is on a shared hosting hence, I am not excepting top notch performance, however still I am trying squeeze every single precious ms that I can .

This is my profile output

Could anybody tell me if the execution times on Banner7(Home Page Slider) is good enough? The slider takes some to load. Is the Banner7 is a bottleneck. What could be the other areas of opportunity to optimize?
Here's the result from Webpagetest.org

shared hosting is not the place for optimization if you dont have access to webstack settings. the only option you have is - full page cache. LestiFPC https://github.com/GordonLesti/Lesti_Fpc

C'est la vie.

  • I am slightly apprehensive about this extension. What does it mean by full cache? Ain't I already caching most of my static connect? Do I really need this extra plugin? Feb 3, 2016 at 15:12
  • you have to use Full Page Cache to avoid php processing every time and minimize database load...
