Server slow to load websites

    Hello all,

    I have a dedicated server with 1and1 with a 10/100 connection and it's running:

    Intel(R)Atom(TM) CPU C2750 @ 2.40GHz
    8GB DDR3
    1TB 7200RPM HDD in RAID-1 config
    Version Parallels Plesk v12.0.18_build1200140606.15 os_CentOS 6
    OS CentOS 6.5 (Final)

    My issue is that websites take 4-6 seconds to begin loading (meaning white space before any graphics/content appears) whereas sites like CNN, Google, Fark, my competitors sites, all have a 1 second or so load time where after a second or so you can start viewing the site contents.

    Is there anyway to figure out what's going on and to optimize my load times? If so, how? is my server slow? I never seem to come anywhere close to using all of my CPU or RAM and my HDD's are about 50% full (mainly from backups)
