Event Calendar Slow to Load and Shows Gear Icon When Site Loads

I installed the event calendar add-on and added it to the home page of my site. The site now loads very slowly, and I see a gear icon right below the header each time I open the site. Is there a way to speed up the add-on? I currently have the add-on deactivated.

Hi,

The way to speed things up would be to migrate from a cheap shared hosting account to either a VPS or a dedicated server. You could possible add caching but depending on the server it may not make much of a difference.

First, the shared hosting may be our only option so I would like to find an option where the calendar shortcode doesn’t slow our website down dramatically and doesn’t have a gear icon spinning upon loading. When you say I could add caching, are you referring to this that recommends not caching critical pages?
