Hi I hope someone can help, i have a reseller account with some WordPress sites installed 2 of them have comodo ssl installed and they are very slow to load - 12 secs. The one without ssl loads in 4 secs.

Is it possible I have set something up wrong or is there something I can look for?

Hello, Thanks for your question about your site running slower on https. It is possible that there is a slight slowdown after because the browser is performing extra operation to encrypt and decrypt the site. There are many different methods for speeding up the process. In general, however, regular site optimization, such as caching resources and compressing images and code, is a good place to start. Best, Christopher M.
