One of the things I’ve been noticing about my web site (a wordpress blog) is that there’s a very long lag between the initial DNS lookup and the start of the content download.
4772ms in this case! I notice similar results when tracking through pingdom. Yet when I run a tracert on my domain, everything seems pretty speedy.
Does anyone have any idea what’s causing this initial lag? Is this a domain issue? Or are there other technical reasons at play? Thanks!
