It very slow when checking some Url.

According to different sources will be on different location (server),if the server response times is slow,
WP-LinkCheck will take more times to verify,but it no longer then 5 seconds,
WP-LinkCheck default set 5s to timeout,after 5s and server has no response,it mark the url as bad.
