You have too much stuff loading in from external sites and files.  Ads, javascripts, viewstates, etc.

You've already closed this question and given out the lowest grade.  Do you want it reopened so we can continue?

I also suggest you read the help file to learn how things are done here:

>> is using ajax in my web site does affect the speed?

It can...what you need to do is look at everything on the page in terms of both file size and then loading time.

I use firefox and the FireBug extension to do this.  It tells me that your page loads 30 separate items that has a total weight of 245 kb.  Both of those values are on the high side and that means your site CAN be slow.  One of the big factors is that you are using Google Analytics and thus you have to connect to Google's servers on every page load.  The rest of it would be due to variances in the local servers and bandwidths.

FWIW, your page loads pretty fast ( 3-5 seconds) for me.  If you are seeing big slowdowns, I would remove Google first and test.  If everything is still slow, I would move to a different network and test again as the problem may be as simple as your connection

hi
there was an answer from you saying that :
You have too much stuff loading in from external sites and files.
but actually I dont have links for external sites nor advertisements.
Also I removed the google as it was advised from you but the site was still slow to me although my connection is pretty fast with the other websites.
So can i just know another reasons what can cause the slowdown of the website.
The website is www.mallextra.com
Thank you

Your site now loads in 1.28 seconds for me.  A significant speed increase.

You may want to re-read my last post:

Ahmed_3anzi,

Once again, you closed the question and gave out the lowest possible grade and did not ask me for further clarification.  See above why this is frowned upon at EE.

To reiterate,  

Your site loads fine now, with normal speeds.  If you still see slow loading times, it is a result of YOUR network connection and not any images or scripts, AJAX or otherwise.

Once again, I refer you to the help file to learn how to use the site properly.
