Well if you know its easy otherwise you have to read it up get it wrong read how to fix what you broke then fix it.

Eventually I have my site running on 2 servers when I moved it onto the new supposed faster server I had to change the domain name and URL's phewww.

Anyway

My SLOW old site is here http://photos.simark.net/

and the FAST new one is here http://pauter.co.uk/paulsphotos/

Now it seems faster to me as I spent more time on it than I wanted to but is it faster for you.

To those that are up to trying thanks and let me know :)

Can't see much difference to be honest although I have quite a lot of tabs open on my browser. Both look good to me.

Thanks it may be more noticeable when the servers are busy :) as both seem nippy at the moment the old site more so than normal the new server is supposed to have lower contention ratio and SSL drives sold as a premium version of what I currently have

I'll take your word for that. A little bit beyond me to be honest. Does it cost more, that's the question!

Both are pretty slow for me at the moment, but the new one loads in about 3 seconds and the old one in about 4. Switching pages takes a second or two on each with the old still showing the loading swirly type icon still after 15 seconds.

I have just tried both of them and I can't really noticed any difference in speed, both opened up quite quickly.

Think I had an email for that. Costs more though yes? In which case I'll stick where I am. Let you all move onto the faster one freeing up old one :)
