    My website is very fast or fast. Except this part:
    http://www.wood-furniture.biz/forums...0-Design-Ideas

    Images load very slowly.

    You can see it in this test result:
    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/AXRl...0-Design-Ideas

    Connect time and Wait time : 5-8 sec.
    SEMrush
    Some facts:
    1. Website is on VPS (VDS)
    2. Images and CSS are in File System.
    3. Image size - 40-80 KB
    4. There is no problem with Albums:
    http://www.wood-furniture.biz/forums....php?tabid=201
    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/dina....php?tabid=201

    Can you advise me how to speed up Vbulletin?

    There are 12 images and each of them are fetched as FULL SIZE image rather than Thumbnail.

    Use CDN (recommended : AWS CloudFront)

    (optional) Is it necessary to serve 4 adsense units? Analyze CTR of all the units and remove 1 of them.

    Thank you for the reply.

    You're right about Full Image size - changed to thumbs in preview and pages are more faster.

    There are 3 Adsense units. In the footer - there is an affiliate banner.

    Thank you.

    Optimise your site with cloud flare. It helps the loading speed a lot and can help you if you are under attack by DDOS.

    +1 CloudFlare. It helps to much in speed. Anyway Litespeed + Cloudflare will fix your problem. If not, try to change your hosting provider.

    CloudFlare seems good. The problem with that was, some visitors cannot access your site if there was a virus/malware in their PC and if CloudFare sees them as a bot.
