comment Server slow response: ps aux shows many php5-fpm processes
You can have a look in bit.ly/2s0ILr and bit.ly/gKYpq1 and try profiling/caching a bit. Add to that some opcode caching (bit.ly/f5HITG) and you should be fine. As long as you can keep the generation time you have and serve unexpected guests inflow from cache there shouldn't be a real problem.

comment Server slow response: ps aux shows many php5-fpm processes
It seems indeed that your server is fine, and WordPress is your bottleneck. But I wouldn't call it awful. Just that it has some overhead. It's functional though. My WordPress blog has page generation times around 300ms, SilverStripe installation somewhere in 500ms range, and some simple sites on a streamlined in-house CMS get 100ms (all without caching). It's all a matter of how much processing/queries you do.

comment Server slow response: ps aux shows many php5-fpm processes
Ah, I phrased it wrong. I mean is this request time for the PHP generated page only or all CSS / JS requests too? And what times do you get for static HTML and some Hello World in PHP?

comment Do CNAME records overrule A records?
@Jeff, you're right. I think it's just a typo in the question, that's why I asked for verification.

comment Do CNAME records overrule A records?
To get it right, you mean you're gonna swap foo.com into being alias for www.foo.com, correct? The last example is a bit confusing. And as @Avery said, if you need 301, then that's not really DNS stuff.

comment Running php scripts from secure location
If you deny access to your scripts you won't be able to access them. That's what deny is for. Don't do it, and you should be fine. And now seriously, why do you need the scripts to be non-accessible?

comment How to give user permissions on ubuntu server?
Normally what you want is achieved by a chrooted SFTP only setup or some restricted shell like rssh. Do you have to stay with a less secure FTP setup?

comment Migrating a subdomain to a subdirectory, whilst running on a separate server
In that case it should work. Though I think it's not a very elegant and fail-proof solution, so you should weigh the consequences of such a setup in comparison to staying with a separate ecommerce subdomain.
