I see that you are experiencing issues with the website load time.
Since this might be caused due to multiple reasons, it is important to narrow down the issue.
First things to check would be the authentication process for your customers. You can review the overall time taken by the authentication process on both Cloudways and EC2.
Then, you can try reviewing the network configuration of both the servers.
It is also important to review the application versions being installed in both servers. Confirm you are using same version of the application on both servers.
Is there any specific AMI you using on EC2 and the instance type also plays a major role. You can try using the AWS Graviton instances for better performance: https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/graviton/
If you find that there are issues with the EC2 instance you are using, please feel free to reach out to the support team via Support console and we will investigate the same in detail.
Hope this helps.
Take care and have a great day ahead!
Trying to debug website performance issues can be fairly difficult due to the number of possible bottlenecks and/or problems that can arise. Have you done any performance profiling comparison between the Vultr server and EC2? Usually this can give you a decent place to start your troubleshooting.
