Site Runs really slow on initial visit

Hello,

I have my site running with the BlogEngine.NET software and when I visit the site at first it takes a good couple of minutes to load up. Then it will run fine as I go through all of the pages. It is just that initial visit that is very slow to load up. Then if I haven't been to my site in about a half hour and decide to go back it is extremely slow to load up again.

Any ideas why?

Thanks,

Joey

ASP.NET complies code the first time that you visit a site after making any changes to it, which is why you'd get a slow site on the first visit.

As for coming back later and it being slow, there are a number of things that could be. If you've modified code and come back during that period, that would be why it is being slow - which is the most likely cause.
