    My Speed Index is a little below low. To improve the Speed Index, I'd like to know which hardware needs to be upgraded.

    The best thing you can do is upgrade to the most up-to-date hardware available. In terms of machine refresh timeframes, the CPU you have was developed in 2015, which is 6 years or one lifecycle ago.

    To see what comes inside your budget, check at modern processors and their speeds. Upgrade from CentOS 7 to Ubuntu, Debian, or another Linux distribution with NVMe drives. They are used by DirectAdmin.

    Consider employing a fast CDN to provide specific files. Consider caching database requests with Redis and optimizing or clustering your database server.

      You may upgrade to a newer CPU with a clock speed of 4GHz or higher that supports DDR4. Additionally, an NVMe SSD will boost performance.
