    My wordpress site is slow and always has been

    My managed wordpress site is unbelievably slow.  It really always has been.  I called support and they said that it was the theme.  I disagree because I don't think that the theme impacts the Dashboard's ability to create pages, save changes to content, and over all move around in it.

     

    Thoughts?

    Did you run a speed test? Maybe doing so will give you an idea of what the issues are:

    It absolutely could be the theme. A poorly coded theme or plugin can kill your WordPress site no matter how well it's optimized overall.

    it may have nothing to do with theme, my site was also slow at this time, called GD and the problem is with their servers hosting....they need to fix these

    Even my admin panel is slow.  That seems like it wouldn't be related to the theme at all.

    Re: My wordpress site is slow and always has been

    My website too.

     

    Admin panel TOO SLOW.

    @visasadvice7 

    Yesterday I was also experiencing slowness across multiple site on the Managed WordPress Platform. The symptom was that I would click on Pages for example and it would take about 30-45 seconds to load and if I clicked on a specific page it would just spin and spin and then load. 

    Additionally I was getting some 502 and 503 errors. 

     

    Upon investigating / talking with GoDaddy this appeared to be a networking issue. As of this morning (6:30 eastern) it seemed to be resolved (or mostly resolved) based on the spot check I just did on the sites I noticed it on yesterday.
