My site is being slow, what should I do? Print

  • 53

If your website is being slow, we suggest doing the following:

– Try to access your domain in another web browser. For example, if you’re using Internet Explorer, try using Google Chrome, and vice versa


- Close any programs such as torrent clients, or CPU intensive applications which may be slowing down your whole PC


- Reboot your computer. This will kill any stale processes, flush DNS cache and so on


- Try to access your site on another computer or device. If your site runs without issue on another machine, the problem is most likely isolated to your computer


- Restart your router/modem. This can be achieved by simply powering off at the mains. Leave it off for at least 20-30 seconds, then power it back on again


If, after trying all of the above, you’re still having problems, the issue may be related to the content on your website. For example, you may have poorly optimized code, heavy/large image files, etc. We recommend using online tools to test your page load time. A few good ones are Pingdom and GTmetrix – these tools will scan your site and present you with the time it takes for a page to load. You should try and implement any suggestions that these tools provide if possible. Make sure to take a backup of your website first, though


You may also contact us, and we will happily investigate the matter for you.

Everything is working as expected

I was looking for a simple syncthing server and didn't need anything fancy. I found Ethernet servers on server hunter and chose them because of their low price and good reviews. I had access to my server within a few minutes. It was easy for me to change the ubuntu to Centos and everything is working as expected.

Great service overall thus far

Three reasons I decided to try out the service: I heard and subsequently saw that the prices were great, it is very hard to beat those unmanaged special offer prices. I heard that the service was reliable, so far so good. It's only been a week, but I hope that it will continue to be reliable as I use it more. I heard that the support is excellent, and I have to agree. Great service overall thus far.

The networks are top of the line

Great upload and download speeds, apt-get updating is a breeze. The only mishaps was on my end, ssh had some weird buffer lag (sometimes unresponsiveness) that has to do with my connection with my isp. Just make sure your connection stable and everything should work just fine. The networks are top of the line.

Nothing but a joyful experience

Been with them for a week and the transition from old hosting to ethernetserver has been nothing but a joyful experience. Setting up new vps, networking is like a breeze. All set up by george and nothing to worry about really.
