We have a hosting account with fasthost.com that is increasingly getting slower and slower. We have our site on a business account so speed should not an issue.

Error logs include but are not limited to:

Various PHP errors
500 internal server errors

The site used to run fine but we have had some additions to the site recently and the site is now grinding to a halt so much so that it is timing out. The Wordpress admin area is worse and has been running very slow for a while now.

We have had a GTmetrics report produced on the site performance which we will provide as way of narrowing down what is required to be undertaken. There appears to be some coding inefficiencies and possibly some plugin conflicts in addition to some image optimisation.

We need an expert in Wordpress performance to speed up the entire hosting account. Please do not apply unless you have a very good knowledge of Wordpress databases and their optimisation.

We are looking for applicants that can deliver results quickly. We estimate that the work will take no longer than 8 hrs.

Thanks very much,
