    Webpage loads really slow

    I am having issues with a website i am designing. I put it on my webspace to test, and it loads extremely slow. Im very new to programming and cannot write code, can barely read it.

    Steps i took to resolve the issue.
    Posted the php code from a site to help speed up.. and it did.. by 5 seconds(dont know the code snippet)
    cropped images to reduce size.

    Removed extra images and files from the folders.

    The website is Www.webpages.charter.com/syrax442

    Any help would be appreciated!

    When you cropped the images, did you A) set the resolution to 72 ppi, and B) set the image width/height to precisely what they need to be on the page? If they are 1000x800 and all you need is 100x80, they are still too large.

    A lot of times, though, a pages load speed is dependent upon the network connection. Considering that it's being hosted on Charter, makes me think it's just bottlenecked by a ton of everyone trying to access other pages on the same server.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.
