Complete newbie needs help!

RE: Complete newbie needs help!
The 1.6s doesn't have anything to do with the geography. That's almost all time spent on the server itself. I assume that a lot of the script is actually coming from the platform as well and not something that you did in adding the content so the core issues all go back to the platform (both the slow server response times and the slow page performance once the page has been delivered to the browser).

As to which platform, I'm probably not a good one to ask. My vote would be for a VM on one of the compute platforms (Amazon, Google or Microsoft) where you have full control over the stack and can choose to re-size the hardware as needed. Most sites would be able to run on the lowest tier of VM and still be orders of magnitude faster than the cheap shared hosting (and would be < $10/month) but it requires someone to do the actual work in setting up and maintaining the server.

If you build on top of something like wordpress instead of wix then at least you have a lot of hosting options available (both managed and on your own). Something like WPEngine might be a good choice but it kind of depends on what scale you're looking for and what your budget is for hosting.
