I am wondering if you can help me with an issue I’m having.
I have a site hosted on Siteground that is the only one of around 10 I have on my account there that has very long load times between transferring from http to https. Here are two GTMetrix reports that show you what the load times are like when, for some reason, sometimes there is hardly any load time between the http to https transfer (very rare and brief). The second report shows you what is almost always the case…there is 6-7 seconds of load time when going from http to https.

I’ve spoken with my webhost (Siteground) already and even after using the Better Search Replace plugin to replace all http links with https, I’m having this issue. They assured me there’s no issues on the server-side, but I don’t know what the exceptionally long https request load time could be stemming from.
Any ideas what could be the issue here? I am using Let’s Encrypt for the SSL, which comes as an option to turn on in the cpanel. I don’t have https enforce activated on this or any of my other sites; just have Let’s Encrypt active. I’m on a shared hosting server with no dedicated IP address.
Here’s another one of my sites on the same server also using Let’s Encrypt, and loading https very fast: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/hiptreasure.com/w0YEnWfM
