With a good speed internet connection, what sort of page load times would it be reasonable to expect from your website, at peak hours for said site? I am experiencing a go slow on my site and am sure that it's not my connection causing the problem.

Usually it should take about 2 - 3 seconds to load a website. Some providers might be able to render faster with better hardware/networks. I would personally try to optimize apache/mysql as it's usually what takes the most server resource usage on a server.

Do you have a dedicated server or are you on shared/reseller?

You can use the tool available at

which will help you to determine what might be the problem.

I would agree with LucasG, 2-3 seconds. If you actually count out the seconds 4-5 is pretty long.

Thank you. I have shared hosting for this particular website and am definitely unhappy with the current load times. Thanks for the optimisation link, I'll check it out. It's a small site, small pages, I fear the problem is not with what code I have put up.

Run a test or two and share the results with your current host. Ask if they can do something to speed things up if the problem is on their end.

Page loading also depends on the your connection speed And you need to remember about that while counting.

On a high speed internet, you should be able to open a page in a matter of a few seconds. I have always learned that visitors will likely leave your site all together if it does not load in under 30 seconds (but even I will leave well before that).

Try this Firefox Extention: http://www.quirk.biz/searchstatus/
It's simple to use. It will tell you the page load times and the individual timing for every http request, so that you may tune your site.

I am more than aware of the effect of personal connection speeds on page load times, having started out with a 14.4 baud modem and worked up to my current broadband connection.

A couple seconds is definitely optimum with everything being as it should on a failr fast connection. Anything over ten without large files or media would cause me some concern. First and foremost people don't like to wait and the longer it tries to load the mroe it seems to drop the connection which means even longer load times over multiple attempts.
