    Why https sites are slow to load?

    I visited many websites and all of https sites are slow to load if compare with non-ssl (http) sites. What is making a https site loads slowly? How to improve this if I move my site to https?
    Any comments would be appreciated!

    I changed some of my sites to https , didn't notice a increase in loading speed.
    Try using other browsers.

    https require more time than http to etablished the connection, this is due to the SSL handshake. But it should not have an impact bigger than few milliseconds. If a site with https load slowly, that's not due to the https.

    Hi,
    Did you also try that on different browsers?
    The difference shouldn't be felt at all. Looks like an issue with your local browser rendering.

    Is this just your perception or have you performed speed tests on these sites?
