I was not trying to insult you because of your host choice. Rather to give you feedback from my experience. My experience with NightmareHost was, and continues to be, unsatisfactory. Not all slow sites I often visit are hosted there, but some are. Google's Speedtest says raspi.debian.net is fast, but knowing DH, they probably purposely slowdown access over Tor, and speedup access from testing sites. When I go to www.debian.net, it redirects to debian.org and displays a page within a second or so. When I go to raspi.debian.net, it usually times out three to five times minimum before displaying, which takes several minutes. You're free to take the feedback or ignore it.
