    Maybe your site got hacked.

    1 - Turn off all plugins, revert to Twenty-Seventeen theme and check site speed. If it still persists, then there is something wrong with your server, SQL DB or DNS.
    2 - If speed is OK in step 1, turn your theme back on. If the site becomes slow again, then the problem is something in your theme isnt working well. Install WP-Debug and see what scripts/php process or hanging up your server.
    3 - If speed is OK in step 2, turn your plugins back on 1 by 1 until your site slows down.

    Thats pretty much all I can say without actually taking a look at the site.

    Not hacked. that's for sure. It's just a few concurrent processes that are running and hogging server resources.

    If you want me to go take a look on the inside let me know.
    Do you use WpMain? If not I suggest you create a SubDomain and use it.
    Do you have WpOptimize?
    Did you set the Site to Delete passed changes?
    Is the Lazy Load on?
    Sorry if these questions were already asked. Take a break from it and breath you'll figure it out.
    Look at your change log I crash my site by disabling a plug in.

    Thanks for replying. No, I don't use wpmain and no i am not using wp optimize right now but I used to in the past. No, lazy load is on. The problem is not with optimizations but with "wait time".

    There are multiple instances of website.com/index.php running on my server. Is there a fix for it?

    Sorry again if this was asked. You clear the Cache?
    It sounds simple walk away for a couple of hours and the Ah Ha will hit you

    Yes, did pretty much everything that needed done. I am not a wordpress novice by any means but having a hard time figuring the error out this time. It's the stray processes that are slowing the server, just need to find a way to disable them.

    The best thing is to use SSD hosting servers and there are different plugins for that purpose. Are you using any?

    Update - the host said several IPs are hitting your website and causing resource drain. I blocked them but the issue persists. The wait time for the domain is still very bad in Pingdom and nothing I do is working. Any help appreciated.

    Good! now you know the issue. Do you have Wordfence? They keep a pool of IPs to block.

    Click the link below if you're new to BHW!
    Home Page:
    Add your site to the Cloudflare.

    Then Install and configure Fail2Ban and IPTables. Your problem should be solved.

    PM me if you need any assistance.

    Sounds like a (D)DoS.

    CloudFlare will take care of the problem for a small scale attack.

    Thanks for your reply but I just checked it's my ad network that's also causing issues. I already use Cloudflare so will try that.

    I am trying to take up the issue with my network's support atm. Thanks a lot.

    There used to be a tool in the past called (D)DoS-Deflate by MediaLayer which worked very well as a free script solution. It should still be available and will work today.
