I'm putting the finishing touches on my band's website-- patemaband.com and I've hit a wall where the load times are total hit and miss.  Sometimes it's lightning fast (and usually in chrome or firefox) and other times it takes in excess of 20 seconds for my home page to load past the "EXIST TO OVERCOME" text.  Because the load times seems to be totally random across different computers, I really just don't know how to address it. Any help would be much appreciated!

The new safari they released with High Sierra has some things it blocks to take out ads, large images etc. it loads slower because it "as they say" cleans your site before showing it to you. I think that should be changed soon.

here are some ways to fix it btw:

IN TERMINAL:

Disable DNS Prefetching in Safari: defaults write com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled -boolean false

Enable DNS Prefetching in Safari: defaults delete com.apple.safari WebKitDNSPrefetchingEnabled

If this does not work, try googling your question, there is a few other threads on this that done pertain with your actual website but to apple.
