    Hi. A website I use all the time takes roughly 10 seconds page-to-page on my desktop, yet operates normally (1 to 2 seconds) on two laptops I have around. And, all other sites seem to operate in normal speed on my desktop. Any idea what can be making this one website (www.freetrialcity.com) load so slow and what I might do to fix it?

    Thanks.  Ron

    Takes about 9+ seconds to load here...

    This wouldn't be spam would it ? ?

      Nope, not spam at all. I'm just trying to figure out why this loads so slowly on one system, and not on others. And, to complicate matters, this seems to be the only slow loader on my desktop. I'm guessing something in the desktop is causing this. I'm discouraged that it takes 9+ seconds on your end...although that's better than the 30+ I'm experiencing.

      Thanks,

      Ron

        Appreciate it. Is that for the initial home page load? What are you experiencing for page-to-page times?

        Just so you all know, this is an affiliate redirection site.

        That's where this comment would have come from...
