Magento Speed Issue - Hostgator Shared hosting 4 seconds for first load.


I'm currently having a speed issue on Magento 1.9.3

Please look at the attached image. ( [url removed, login to view] )

The FIRST request for connecting to the website ( [url removed, login to view] ) takes 4 full seconds before the website even begins to load css/images.

I've had other Magento websites on Shared Hostgator hosting before that had no speed issue.

Why does this first request take SUCH a long time, no matter what page I'm on?

How can I find out what SPECIFICALLY in Magento is taking such a long time, so that I may go about working to fix it?

Please only contact me if you've already looked at the website and determined the issue.
