    I have been trying to speed my handmade jewelry website. Tried all kinds of plugins. Some of them did not work, others broke my website. I even hired a web developer, that did not work so well either. What would you recommend?

    There are loads of ways to speed up a site: image compression, remove plugins, simpler theme, gzip, static resource caching.

    I'd start with getting some decent hosting. The TTFB is very slow.

    One where you aren’t sharing a server with thousands of others. It may mean paying more but good service isn’t cheap.

    See if there is a local provider, sometimes smaller independents are better than the big nationals.

    Change hosting plan first, also hire a good web developer who are able to do this task.
