Server response time slow since switching to GoDaddy

Hi there, we run a small online business and recently switched our hosting provider to GoDaddy and noticed after setting everything up, that the server response times take A LOT longer.


I ran a scan using GTmetrix and noticed a difference of 9 seconds between my old hosting and GoDaddy business hosting, despite having the same content. I've already paid so much and now have to deal with this. Hoping someone can look into this.

Hi there, it is

I just pinged my website today and the response time is now hovering between 140ms to 220ms. This is ridiculous. 


Hi there @noel_parts! I think I can help you. If you want to migrate your site to GoDaddy, you can use their cPanel's backup features as it will allow you to move your website, the email accounts, and its databases, you have set up on cPanel. I faced the same issue with my site but now it got resolved.
