    Why is my site so slow.......Please help me

    I wonder if somebody can help me please. My website is really slow, at first I thought it was just me but other people have said the same thing so I know itís a real problem. Iím using a super fast WP theme (X Theme, that is known for itís speed of loading) and only have a few plugins (two caching plugins, AddThis, Google Analytics, Disqus and a related posts one) but it can take unto 20 seconds to load. Sometimes it can load within a second so I know thereís a problem somewhere.

    Iíve spoken to the hosting company and they say it works for them and they canít offer scripting help so I donít know what to do. Iíve compressed the images as much as possible and have cached everything I can. Iíve tested the site with Google (PageSpeed Insights), Pingdom and GTmetrix with generally good but varying results.

    Please can somebody help me with this as Iím loosing visitors by the day. The site can bee seen at

    Here are some tips on how to optimize your WordPress website:
    * use caching technique. Caching may be performed by caching plugins (the most popular option), browser (browser caching), or server (server caching).

    Compress your images. Combine your files to reduce the number of HTTP requests. A compression method call gzipping can reduce your site’s response size by 70 percent.

    Website loading is slow only when it has unnecessary content. To avoid this inconvenience, you have to do some changes.
    -reduce unnecessary data from the pages
    -compress the size of the images of your website
    -use necessary CSS and JS.
    -remove the numbers of the requests of HTTP.
