My website is highly optimised. My site comes in the top 1% of fastest loading sites on Pingdom. The complete load and render time from the homepage is about 550ms for the homepage (first load; 450ms second load) accessed near the server location, but then when accessed further away from the site it obviously gets slower.
On page speed tests the only negative I have is cookies are passed with my static files, which is one three things I have left to look at.
2) I know very little about premium DNS, CDN and the other services that have been offered. What are members preferred options for services like CloudFlare that speed up site loads times? Am I right in that the likes of CloudFlare speed up DNS, HTTPS and to first byte?
