    Images taking a while to load - web forwarding the cause?

    Hi,

    I have bought a .com name with a company, and I upload my website to a free webhost.

    I use web forwarding so my .com is direct to my particular free webhost name.

    When I go to my .com online, it seems to take a while for the images to load up quickly, they are only small 1-3kb gifs for the background.


    I have mentioned this to a friend and he seems to think it is basically because the .com has to go to the urls from the free webhost to load the images, and if I hosted my files at the .com site, they would pop up quickly.

    Is this correct? Or is it another problem?

    More likely it's because with free webhosting you get what you pay for. You're probably sharing a tightly-packed server with a lot of other traffic.
