Your frst step should be to test it with one of the page loading speed sites like


It will provide you with a wealth of information about the page such as total size, number of images, scripts, exteranl documents, load times at various network speeds, and finally some advice on how to improve the load speed.

I've often seen web sites where huge images are transferred and scaled down at the client, rather than scaling them down at the server first to save bandwidth. Easy fixes with huge gains.

The site is DOWN !!!   Put it on a REAL shared web hosting server, rather than on your own computer.  That is the best way to get fast loading.  As long as it is on some local computer not up 24/7, just forget it.

I'll quote a couple of the biggest hitters from weboptimization.com for your site, but you're best to check it for yourself: The site provides much more analysis and recommendations than I am quoting here.

Quoted from http://www.weboptimization.com analysis for http://www.spotredsea.com

# TOTAL_OBJECTS - Warning! The total number of objects on this page is 72 which by their number will dominate web page delay. Consider reducing this to a more reasonable number. Above 20 objects per page the overhead from dealing with the actual objects (description time and wait time) accounts for more than 80% of whole page latency. See Figure II-3: Relative distribution of latency components showing that object overhead dominates web page latency in Website Optimization Secrets for more details on how object overhead dominates web page latency. Combine, refine, and optimize your external objects. Replace graphic rollovers with CSS rollovers to speed display and minimize HTTP requests. Consider using CSS sprites to help consolidate decorative images. Using CSS techniques such as colored backgrounds, borders, or spacing instead of graphic techniques can reduce HTTP requests. Replace graphic text headers with CSS text headers to further reduce HTTP requests. Finally, consider optimizing parallel downloads by using different hostnames or a CDN to reduce object overhead.

#  TOTAL_SIZE - Warning! The total size of this page is 750358 bytes, which will load in 163.95 seconds on a 56Kbps modem. Consider reducing total page size to less than 100K to achieve sub 20 second response times on 56K connections. Pages over 100K exceed most attention thresholds at 56Kbps, even with feedback. Consider optimizing your site with Website Optimization Secrets, Speed Up Your Site or  contacting us about our optimization services.

# TOTAL_SCRIPT - Warning! The total number of external script files on this page is 26 , consider reducing this to a more reasonable number. Combine, refactor, and minify to optimize your JavaScript files. Ideally you should have one (or even embed scripts for high-traffic pages) on your pages. Consider suturing JavaScript files together at the server to minimize HTTP requests. Placing external JavaScript files at the bottom of your BODY, and CSS files in the HEAD enables progressive display in XHTML web pages.
the site was down last night.  That is a big part of your problem, plus poor coding and too many scripts being loaded, that take at least 15 seconds on a very fast connection.

ok, i know my problem, i want advices to solve

The main suggestion was to reduce the number of objects (72) to the low 20s, and the toital size of the page from 750K to something in the 100K area. Start with images, making sure that their size has been reduced to that displayed on the page, and the resolution to something appropriate for a web page. Next, combine multiple images that are displayed together into a single image. Stitch together the 26 javascript files into a few files. These steps alone will probably reduce the page load size significantly,
