    There's no simple answer to that question, as it will depend to a great extent on your hosting situation.

    If you have the required access, you would probably benefit from setting up Memcached and OPCache (see here: https://github.com/vanilla/vanilla-docs/blob/master/docs/developers/backend.html.md )

    I was only able to set these up after moving to a VPS hosting solution, as my previous host didn't allow the server access needed to set them up.

    Personally, I use that plus the free CloudFlare option.

    There is, sadly, no one size fits all solution.

    Avoid themes that load resources from lots of 3rd party sites. look at default.master.tpl , themehooks, css and keep slow 3rd party sites from hogging resources. also avoid performance hogging plugins.

    Pragmatism is all I have to offer. Avoiding the sidelines and providing centerline pro-tips.
