Whether to work with Drupal7?

I really like Drupal7, but I'm afraid what will happen next with support. Try 8 version and was horrified - my server (quite fast) I see a nasty picture of the page load slowly. Drupal 7 - loaded instantly.

But I don't see the alternatives, maybe there's something simple and quick like Drupal (not really a framework, not ehpm)?

Several considerations that can help you to make a choice:
Drupal 7 for quite a while will be supported 3-4 years at least.
There is a fork of drupal 7: https://backdropcms.org/

Drupal 8 it works quite well. Yes, it is technically more difficult and requires more skill from the developer, but he's not slower and also has more advanced caching.

Overall, I think we need to evolve and develop Drupal 8, but it is still possible to do projects, and 7.
Drupal8 I liked the fact that it has become perhaps even more versatile. But Yes, and harder. But this complexity is not justified, because of this, some simple things very difficult to do. About speed - Yes, like the nucleus is more or less quickly (relatively), but for example put the module rating and see that it loads the widget with a delay of 1 sec after the page is loaded, it immediately caused me desire to remove, which I did. - Liliana_Hickle82 commented on June 10th 19 at 17:25
Well it's not a "Drupal 8 slower", but rather, the module failed.
In complexity, I agree, for General purpose CMS is already too difficult and specialized framework is still very far away. - Guiseppe commented on June 10th 19 at 17:28

I professionally develop websites on Drupal.
And I like the D8than D7.
The switch was difficult, but the theming is much easier in D8 than D7.

You can continue to use D7 and then just migrate the site to D8, when will support seven. In Drupal 8 for this is the Migrate API https://niklan.net/blog/159.
But if you want to learn Drupal, it is better to work by eight, because the principles that are put in it will be in Drupal 9, so that knowledge will be useful.

You didn't specify what version of PHP on your server. D8 much faster in PHP 7.
And if you need a good shared hosting for Drupal, I recommend to try the specialized hosting Drupal from ra-don. Place they have their own blog and a few client sites. Here's my review about their hosting https://zniki.ru/blog/66.

Try the October CMS and on account of Druapl 8 and I agree with you, hosting under 8 can be slightly adjusted.
