I know this subject has been hashed over and over. My question is NOT how to IMPROVE TTFB but to determine WHY it excels on one server but not on another.
I do not have the technical expertise (or access) to do a side-by-side comparison of the server settings. My hope is that one of you expertise out there might be able to spot what is going on.
I have the exact same site running on two different hosting services.
Hosting service A gives me this test result https://www.webpagetest.org/result/170611_QC_RKA/
Hosting service B gives me this result: https://www.webpagetest.org/result/170610_32_15MN/
I am trying to work with Hosting B to spot the difference and I am getting pushback that it’s because of my plugin setup which makes no sense since we’re testing the EXACT same setup. I believe there’s some internal setting which is making the difference. I also see pattern where the TTFB is not good on hosting B for several sites. Again, with pushback from the hosting B company.
If anyone can provide me insight into this, I would be very grateful.
P.S. Don’t worry about WHY I want to be with Hosting B… it’s a long story.
