There are probably changes in CC now that stock Blueprint would need modifying to handle, if I had to guess. I see you've started a thread about what's involved in moving away from Blueprint. Why not try your store with Foundation skin temporarily and see if you notice a speed difference...

Here's a reply from the hosting company:

As checked, there were only few processes on the server when the site is accessed, this means that the server is okay. This could be due to the plugins you were using, please do try to optimize your script and might need to eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS.

Any ideas what that means anyone?

"to eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS"

There is a technique that can be coded in the <head> section of a web page that informs the web browser that it is safe to load as many page resources at one time as possible. These resources are images, javascript files and CSS files.

There are practical limits, however. Good 'netiquette suggests no more than 4-6 simultaneous connections to the web server and (Firefox, at least) obeys that courtesy. Some web servers can also limit the number of simultaneous connections from a single IP address (and will BAN an IP if too many connections are attempted too frequently).

For CubeCart, I have seen problems when javascript files got into the browser (which will run them) before the page was ready. That causes all sorts of mayhem.

Your browser should have a "Developer's Tools" mode where you can watch the "waterfall" of incoming data and page resources. It is very educational.

If the waterfall shows that the "first-byte" arrival time is excessive, then we can look at a few things.

Install Firebug plugin. Right click on page to choose Inspect element with Firebug. Click on NET tab, then refresh page. You will see what loads in what order, and the horizontal bars create a waterfall effect that indicates how long it takes for each to load.

Firefox (for Windows, at least) has a built-in diagnostics suite: on the menu bar, click Tools, select Web Developer, select Network. If your Firefox does not show the menubar, then click the three horizontal line menu button at the upper-right, then the wrench icon, then select Network.
