It can be frustrating when you visit your website and it seems to be running slow, however it is important to determine if the issue is from a local connection or from the server. A number of factors can contribute to how fast your connection to our servers is, including:

- The connection with your ISP
- The number of network "hops" between your ISP and our servers
- The amount of traffic our servers are currently having
