Default Site load speed w/ XCart

I'm currently testing XCart 5.x on a shared host v/s a dummy copy of my real site.
I have www.mysite.com
and xcart is installed at www.mysite.com/xcart

I'm kind of worried because it's running a LOT slower than my current cart

XCart seems to be 3x's as large as my current site (home page)and this is with just the demo store, added the default test products, and thats about it...

Is anyone else having slow load speeds? What have you done to correct this?

Still playing around with the site, but big thanks to the XCart team in helping me to gain some speed!



Performance grade
A 92
Load time
1.91 s
Faster than
72 %
of tested sites
Page size
1.0 MB
Requests

Tested from

Performance insights
GRADE SUGGESTION
B 80 Remove query strings from static resources
B 80 Serve static content from a cookieless domain
B 86 Minimize redirects
A 90 Leverage browser caching
A 100 Avoid bad requests
A 100 Minimize request size
A 100 Specify a cache validator
A 100 Specify a Vary: Accept-Encoding header


Would still like to cut the load timein half, but again, just starting on this platform, so there's a bit of a learning curve

Hello,

I am also getting long loading times (6-10s) on my website, could we have some examples of tweaks that helped to gain speed?

Thanks!

Could you please send me the link to your site so I can have a look?
Also please copy the content of the 'Environment' page so we know what server you are running on.


Thanks.
