Hello, i am using the Dynamix theme on my wordpress site, since i have been using this theme my website has become considerably slower especially when loading the main page for the first time since that web browser has been open. Some times it could take longer than 10 seconds. I was just wandering is there a fix for this or does everyone else using the same theme have the same issue?

It definitely shouldn’t be taking that long, do you have a link to it, I’ll try to see what maybe the cause of it. As you can see from the http://dynamix.themeva.com site, it should be pretty fast at loading.
It looks like it’s this image – it’s 1.3MB ( http://www.thephotochest.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/winter-landscape-636634_1920.jpg ).
You’re best opening that into Photoshop ( or similar ) and save for web, it should only be a couple of hundred KB.
I’d also enable a Caching plugin when you’re ready like WP Fastest Cache, this will optimize your server and content.
I had different results this time, I test once and it was about 4 seconds and then the second was 25 seconds. Something isn’t right there. The page load performance is high ( as you’d expect ), but the actual load time is very slow.
It’s worth disabling all plugins apart from Visual Composer and seeing what happens then. As mentioned earlier, the theme naturally scores high on page load, I can’t see why it would be any different for you, unless there is an issue with the server.
Ok i disabled all of the plugin i was using. As you can see from this image http://prntscr.com/69uc9t the load time was quite fast. I also done another test and that was 5.46 seconds. I know there is a little vary in the times. Once i have all of the plugins enabled again i did another test it is showing that the site loads at 2.99seconds. This is very weird and not to sure what to do from here onwards as some times it still takes avery long time to load the site.
That points to the server being the issue. Since the same scripts are run each time, it should be consistent times. What hosting company are you with?
One thing to try is caching plugin like WP Fastest Cache too, this will definitely improve the load speed and probably stabilise things. The images for example are taking the longest to load, if they’re cached, it should dramatically improve the time.
I am using the web/domain host 123-reg https://www.123-reg.co.uk/web-hosting/ Do you advise any other hosts or anything? I know that they are not the best host around but i don’t understand why the site its taking long to load.
There is lots of wait time from the server. I use clook which are UK based too and haven’t had any issues. Having said that, I don’t think 123 reg should be under performing.
Try WP fastest cache first. I’ve just done another test with pingdom ( Amsterdam ) and it was 2.1seconds.
Ok i will try the plugin now, The first time i load up the site it is always lots slower than the second or third time like this shows http://prntscr.com/6a4ja0
