I'm testing the loading speeds of my website.

I've just done a test using Pingdom but it returns some strange (at least to me) results:

Is this normal? Is there something I can do to speed this up?

Depending on the network conditions (and the state of your LDNS resolver cache), its quite normal. You can try increasing the DNS TTL to around a day so that the record gets cached at LDNS resolvers. Right now its 1 hour for your FQDN.
