    Lately, I don't like the performance of my website, sometimes it slows down, sometimes it lags. And I need it to work faster, fly, so to speak. Can you suggest anything? The most important thing I need is fast work.

    Did you try to restart the server (if you have that option)? Most of the time restarting the server is not necessary, but on some occasions it may fix the issues causing your site's sluggishness.

    Secondly, if your site uses a database, repairing it (using the Repair DB option in phpMyAdmin) may also help.

    But as everyone has said, we need more info. It can be as simple as bots overwhelming your site.

    Based on what you said, it looks like site is getting sluggish during high traffic time.
    Mainly 2 reasons for this.
    1. Database queries are not optimized, and are taking too long to finish, so second query keeps waiting, slowing the webpage.

    2. Apache is keeping the connection open for too long, and is running out of resources to process new connections.

    For the first one, fix those queries, or implement a caching system, to reduce number of queries sent to database.

    For second one, increase apache variables like number of servers, number of processes, max workers.
    You can double those values safely, first time.

    And reduce keep alive timeout. Cut it to half may be. Don't go too low on this, otherwise it will have opposite effect.
    Something like "3" or "5" is ok.

    When was the last time you did work on the site?

    Does it use a Content Management System like WordPress?
    If you do then you've probably got plugins, mods etc that may be out of date or clashing with each other. Turn them all off and check your site speed. Then turn them back on one by one and see if the speed issue kicks in for any particular plugin (or set of plugins, sometimes they're dependant on each other and need to be done together.)

    Use developer tools to see if there's any particular file that is causing a bottleneck or a file that can't be loaded at all.
