when testing from the same continent:
TTFB 5.2s -> 2.7s
Start render 21.6s -> 12.3s

However, this is still nowhere near enough, but finding hosting close to Uganda is imperative.

There are a number of problems to be addressed. First off, your TTFB needs to be well below 1 second. Not only is DNS slow, but there are some problems with your infrastructure that are also slowing things down - my guess it that you're running on shared hosting? You really need the power of a VPS to run eCommerce, and of course that provides you with a far better view of what's going on and how to fix problems.

Second - server location. Like us here in NZ, you're suffering from narrow pipes from the US, and that's hurting you badly.

Third, the code isn't very good. Use resources like https://validator.w3.org and https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ to identify errors that will cause both cross browser instability and performance problems.

You also have no SSL cert installed... really is important with an eCommerce site.

hth,

Thank you so much. I'm going to migrate to something in Africa. Do you know any good companies that have servers in Africa?

I hade to make the code load less efficiently in order for it to play nice with Ajax. And an SSL certificate is something we are looking in to but since we don't process cc data or paypay, it has not been a priority
