Windows 7: Web Page Loading slow on home server

Web Page Loading slow on home server

Hi All

I am hosting my website on my own PC at home. I am running Apache on a virtual Ubuntu machine inside my windows machine (using a Bridged Virtual Network adapter)

Now I am using a Dynamic DNS service to map my domain name to my public IP.

Problem: When Ioad my domain name, the site loads fine, no problems, but when I load the web page from an external PC (that is not on my network) the site loads EXTREMELY slow (web page does not even load properly). Now I have a 1Mbps broadband line at home.

I suspect that the upload speed for my line is to slow to handle traffic requested from outside? Or can it be something else?
I tested it on my own PC using a Proxy service (to mimic an external PC) and the result is the same: Very slow

Thank you

You can run an test from speedtest.net to verify your upload speed. You might also want to look into allocating more resource to the virtual machine.

@Parman. Thank you. I think it is my poor upload speed. It ranges between 300 and 500 kbps, and I reckon that is way too slow. Only using it for testing purposes anyways.

Glad you were able to figure out the cause. using it on the lan is the same thing sticking to that will be smoother for you.
