Enabling SSL greatly reduces my load time


I was wondering if anyone can help, I'm not great with websites and the technicalities of them.

When I enable SSL on my website the load speed increases by around 2seconds, I understand that it is necessary/good for SEO to have SSL enabled, however is it still worth at the cost of the SEO for speed of load?

Is there any way around this...? Ihope this question makes sense.

In anticipation,

Re: Enabling SSL greatly reduces my load time

SSL shouldn't really have much effect on site load speed in and of itself. I tested the loading time for your home page and it took about 2 seconds to load, which is about what I would expect for what you have on your homepage.
