How To Reduce TTFB: Immediately Effective!

Last Updated on 3rd November 2022 by Ajmer Singh

TTFB (Time to First Byte) is a common issue and most of the bloggers working on their website speed are looking for a solution to this problem.

If you search for “How to reduce TTFB” you can get many solutions; the most common is to change your host or upgrade your host.

I believe that changing your host to a fast web host will work but I have a different solution. Read till the end…

I am also using Cloudways which is a cloud host and very fast in terms of speed and performance.

However, you can also get cloudways for 20% off using code AJMER20 (with 3 days free trial) and yes Cloudways is cheaper than shared hosts in long term.

Yes, changing to a fast host works, but what about those people who don’t have money or use cheap web hosts.

After a lot of experiments and failures, I finally achieved 95+ scores in Gtmetrix and Google pagespeed insights.

That was a tough 10 days but I finally got a solution.

For those who don’t want to change their host or don’t have money to upgrade their host try this solution and let me know in the comments section if it works or not.

How to reduce TTFB? (Time to First Byte)

To reduce the TTFB you have to connect your site with Cloudflare CDN and install Cloudflare super page cache plugin.

You need to configure Cloudflare CDN with proper settings. I have already published a post regarding Cloudflare’s best settings that I use.

But only connecting your site with CDN is not the solution.

The super page cache plugin for Cloudflare is the main solution that works for reducing TTFB.

Default settings for the plugin work perfectly, just activate the page cache after installing the plugin.

After adding both, go to Gtmetrix and check your TTFB.
