I have built a Wordpress website for my new business in Elementor and it uses Woocommerce for small volume ticket sales. I am happy with the site and its running OK but its VERY slow and Woocommerce orders (via PayPal) are working, but only just, with a frequent timeout error when customers purchase tickets. I am not sure if the problems are due to poor speed of the hosting server or if I have done some things as I created the site that slow it down. I have plugsins to enhance cacheing and have smushed photos but it does not make any difference. I would like an expert to take a look at what I have done and work with me to enhance the speed of the site (or help me to establish that I need to change to another web hosting service.
I would imagine that this is a small job, no more than a few hours work (??) and a matter of educating me in how I could improve speed or making some changes for me in order to achieve this.
