I wanted to compare your hosting to WP-Engine, so I created a site there and migrated it to your hosting so we have a duplicate install; same plugins & theme, etc.
Unfortunately, the page load time is almost double what I get on the identical site at WP-Engine. And TTFB at WP-Engine is 142ms, while on the DEV hosted site, it's 5.82 seconds.
So we flushed all caches on the DEV hosted site, including object cache, deactivated all plugins and enabled 2019 theme. Good improvement overall, yet still TTFB is over 1 second. So it would appear there may be an underlying issue with the hosting droplet.
Can you please check into this as we'd really like to move our sites away from WP-Engine and into your hosting if they perform as well or better.
