Wordpress site takes very long to load

I have a website designed by an external vendor on Wordpress that is taking very long to load. The funny thing is that the page loaded ok on  their test servers, but it only became very slow when it was on our Azure host.

We have previously worked with them on another website, but didn't have any issues in the loading speeds of the website. On our end, we have set up our server settings to be exactly the same as the the first website, but it doesn't help.

Is there any other thing that we can check for this? Thanks in advance!

There could be a number of factors causing the slow down so you'll need to work out what is causing the bottle neck. Database connection, or remote file loads.

For starters, put your url in to a benchmark tester and see what they come back with:

gtmetrix.com
