Drupal on GoDaddy is TOO SLOW
After setting up Drupal on GoDaddy, I've found that this site is just WAY TOO SLOW with Drupal+GoDaddy. It's annoyingly slow. Previously, I just had a simple static site and it was fast, but that's not too surprising for a static site. I have just contacted GoDaddy about this and my guess is that I won't get any resolution. I looked at this article about the problem, and it talks about shared hosting on GoDaddy in general being slow. I did the reverse ip lookup like the article mentions and see that there are over 2000 websites on the same server as kristen.org, so I guess it's no surprise that my site is slow. It's a shame because I don't want to switch over to a new hosting company, but it's either that or perhaps upgrading to a more expensive non-shared account which I don't really want to do. If anyone has suggestions for low-cost sites that allow running Drupal, please let me know. I guess if I'm going to switch, then a provider that has a Linux shell account as part of the package would be very cool.
