      Hi Jaspreet,

      In my knowledge it should not. The main issues in site speed are Javascripts, Images, Server response time, Caching etc.
      Also, changing/hiding your URL is quite important for security. If infected/hacked it might cause you much more on the SEO front (SEO spam/blacklisting)

  4. Hey, thanks. I used the other option combined with this and it worked.
