    Very good article, with one omission. You do not mention anything about permalinks and the potential for overhead when they are mis-configured.

    There is a good discussion here:

    Using a good theme and deactivating unnecessary plugins helps too.

    I’ve started building more complex WP sites recently – and they’ve begun to slow down. This post is a godsend – and enough in itself to get mt to subscribe to your RSS feed.

    Thank you.

      Hi Vikash,
      all plugins have acquired some space. So Its totally dependent on your hosting plan. If your hosting is good then it’s not affected, but if your hosting is not good then your site will definitely go slow.
