Server response time is the time it takes for a server to return the initial HTML. This time should be kept at a minimum - ideally within 200 milliseconds, and preferably even less! There are dozens of potential factors which may affect a slow down of response time of your server:

  3. Slow routing,
  4. Frameworks,
  5. Libraries,
  6. Resource CPU starvation, or
