I cannot connect to your website at all, at the moment:

Quote:Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Have you enabled keep-alive yet, as the WPT results suggest?

Judging from those results, your server's processing PHP appears to be laggy, and since you're minifying lots of resources through a PHP script, your otherwise static resources now also have a large TTFB.

You mention you have VPS. Is it often under heavy load, as the above error suggests?
