Has anybody experienced the issue where when you visit a URL for your site there is like a 3 second pause/lag time until you see anything (the page starts to load) in the browser but then the page loads normally at a good rate? The exact behaviour is you see the first green bar in IE 6 for about 3 seconds before you are transferred to the page.
This initial delay could cause surfers to think your site is down!
I'm running apache 2 and linux 8 on a dedicated box. Any thoughts on this phenomenon?
Is there a way to improve the initial responsiveness of the page upon clicking a link to your site or typing the URL in?
