why do you think your
- default installation on
- shared account
should be fast????

get vps, configure it, and your shop will be fast enough…

The usual reasons:

1) Server hosting plan that doesn’t give adequate resources to the web server and database engine.

2) Hosting provider that doesn’t understand how to configure web and database servers, or tries to restrict the amount of resources (shared server) so that multiple accounts are given a fair shot at using them.

3) Inadequate configuration of Magento itself, it needs all its caching turned on and a memory_limit of 256MB or above, gzip compression, etc. enabled.

4) Need for a full page cache system to set up.

5) Failure to use a Content Distribution Network to offload serving images so your server can concentrate on running Magento.

All this has been discussed before and in exhaustive detail in one of the longest threads in these forums...

American Opulence Analogy

Magento = 45 ft. Beaver Motor Coach
Zen Cart = VW Camper Van

Everyone starts out wanting to power the Beaver Motor Coach with the 4 cylinder VW engine instead of the Detroit Diesel 8V-71 it requires.

MagenX is right, I’ve been told recently that shared hosting is not the best option for Magento, so you probably need to solve this issue. As to speeding up Magento, here’s also a good thread with lots of ways.
And this guide is quite comprehensive.
