I purchase a template at and I installed the template in my godaddy VPS server, it was not that fast, then I setup an SSL for my store and enable SSL and also Increased Front Office Security, after doing that the site was super slow, like a minute to load one page so I contacted Templatemonster support, godaddy support and no one found a solution. The I desire to move to other hosting company so I register with Inmotion Hosting, now the site under HTTP is super-fast but HTTPS still slow. I contacted the new hosting company support and they said it may be an issue with PrestaShop since they ask me to use the default PrestaShop theme just to test the performance under HTTPS and the results are the same, super slow. Please I really need help with this, I love pretashop since I was in Magento before and switch to prestashop and this is the only issue with Prestashop that I have
In the Admin interface it work fine, the issue is in the store front
Thank you for your help
Note: Try my site under HTTP
Then add a product to the cart and try to checkout, you will be redirected to the HTTPS and the page will take forever to load

Please any help?

I have been taking a look at your site and I am not entirely convinced that it has anything to do with the https. It does seem to go slower when in that area, but I think it may have to do with something else. Do you get the behavior when you disable the https for that area or do the regular pages do the same if you make the entire site https?

Kindest Regards,

Yes if i force SSL for the entire store, all pages will be slow, then if i turn off SSL in all pages including checkout page, then the site works fine and fast. This only happens in the store front because the Admin interface ir fast with or without SSL
I also try to change my current theme for the prestashop default and i have the same issue

What I am seeing with your site is that it is trying to get fonts from and that is almost never responding. This is happening when using the https in the checkout. All other requests on the page seem to be responding well.

I visited that site and it is from China. I am not sure why your site would be calling that site, perhaps a module or theme is calling it. Do you know why it is being called? If you know of a specific module that is calling it, can you disable it and then try?

Kindest Regards,
