Please read my recent thread "excessive DNS slows httpd".
The bottom line: I recently introduced SSL to part of my
web site, and it slowed considerably.  Using iptables
(on a Linux system),I blocked all DNS, and speed of
response is better than ever, 8 meg photo files

Additionally, I thought sign-in is encrypted even when
SSL is not in use.  Is this not true?
