    There are many things besides the server that can slow down your website.

    I'm pretty sure that Namecheap isn't a CDN. You would want something like Akamai if you wanted a good CDN. Hosting could be the main reason here, but it depends on what type of website you have and how many plugins you have installed.
    Start with easy things to change (software, code, plugins) before you look into migrating hosts.

      You can also optimize your images. We use TinyPNG.com to compress all of our images.

        Very good point! It's cheaper and easier to cache smaller images, most people miss this step (and it can make a huge difference).

    I recommend using Goddady, Blue host, and Hostgator. Namecheap is best used only for buying domains only.

    Try setting up with a free cloudflare account. Then you don't need CDN. Cloudlfare can speed up most sites (especially wordpress sites) quite a bit. And you can get free SSL for your domain, so it is always on https:// rather than http:

      The setup can be a bit technically challenging, but there are lots of tutorials out there, and it's worth the effort if you want to save money.

      Almost forgot... cloudflare will also protect you from DDOS attacks.

      I've done this for many sites.

    Ok, here's what geeks do

    1- Start by going on pingdom and do a test for your website here https://tools.pingdom.com/
    .
    2- scroll down the page and look for "File requests Sort by" ---> Select: Load Time
    .
    3- Check what are the first items, what's slowing your site, is it big picture, external script whatever ?
    .
    4- Fix your design, compress the image one by one, fix the problems until everything is quick
    .
    5- Install a cache plugin on your site, "W3 TOTAL CACHE" work very well without much tunning
    .
    6- Find a reliable and secure hosting, something high grade that will make this setup safe and faster

    Well, I think we need to understand what your hosting? How many sites? How much traffic do you get? Etc?

    Namecheap is good for buying domains. If you need better speed and customer support, go with Siteground.
