We have a Fully Managed SSD Cloud VPS hosting account with the following:
4 x 2.50GHz Cores 8 GB RAM 5 TB Bandwidth cPanel/WHM/Softaculous 5000 Mbps Network Out
I installed Magento 2.3.5-p2 standard out-of-the-box installation via Softaculous with sample data but when I log in through the Admin panel - there is always a 5 second delay with anything I click on (the circle comes on for the 5 seconds). Also the front end is slow. This was confirmed by the hosting company's tech who had the same loading delay (he says 4-5 seconds). Standard Cache is enabled. There were NO modifications made whatsoever - we didn't load any customers, products or orders; we didn't install any extensions either.
Why is this happening and what can we do to get rid of this performance issue?
