    Hi

    What is a good value for time to first byte for a forum?
    How can i decrease it and improve response time?

    Thanks

    TTFB factors
    • Geographically relative source and target distance = how close test/visitor is to your server
    • DNS, server connection & response time
    • MySQL or database backend performance/settings
    • Server hardware
    but TTFB doesn't mean much - you should care more about initial render time - particularly above fold. Example, check results at Webpagetest.org World Country Flags Demo and TTFB doesn't correlate to what is fastest for page speed.
