Site lag

Why does the site lag so much? Whatever I click onto seems to take way too long to get to the page. Sometimes it's just pathetic how long it takes. Every other site I go on is fine and moves quick except for this one. What's wrong? Reminds me of having a dialup connection.

Ya I don't know about every night maybe thats an exaggeration, but it goes down quite a bit im usually on most nights doing homework. I can start keeping track? I don't have the dns problem on my computers anymore though. I did some reading and it had to do with my router, I had to change my IPv4 DNS settings to:

Preferred DNS server: 4.2.2.3
Alternate DNS server: 4.2.2.2

This is for a DLINK router. I dont know if its different for Linksys ect.

I pretty sure that fixed the problem cause I cleared the DNS settings and waited for it not to work and then changed the settings and then R/F would work. And know the only time I can't get on is when the whole site goes down and before when I couldn't get on for like the whole night and other people where still posting/making threads.
