Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
An FPC only hides the problem, Google and checkout visitors still look at non-cached which only hosting can solve, and for reference 56% of visitors (latest statistics) abandon sites if page loads take longer than 3s so any extra conversion rate will be marginal not material.
