In most cases, it is your web browser, computer, or internet connection that is lagging and not able to download content from the website in a timely manner. Other reasons that a site may appear to lag is a large internet load (many users trying to access it) or a Denial of Service attack, where a bot net sens millions of requests to it per second and overwhelms its ability to respond.
