I posted this in Off Topic because it's not necessarily about Centminmod. My question is how you reduce the time to first byte. I'm currently testing out three different CDNs (Rackspace, Cloudfront, and KeyCDN). The website is 100% static and only contains one HTML file and one CSS file so it's all on the CDN. All three fail webpagetest.org with a First Byte Time between 0.928s and 1.172s. What I still don't understand is how I can get a lower time to first byte on the same website hosted on a VPS without a CDN. Keep in mind that my server is in the southern US and I'm testing in Europe/South America/Australia. Two static files on a CDN can't outperform a VPS thousands of miles away? I'm not discrediting Centminmod because the optimization is awesome, I just don't understand...there's latency/distance involved with a single server which should be minimal with nearby CDN POPs!?
