Evaluation of Web Hosts by Performance Testing

The benchmark data reflects the relative performance of the web hosting servers, rather than variations in geographical locations or local network conditions.

Our testing tool measures the true performance of the web hosts. If someone says they are fast, find out how fast.

It's important that you find the right hosting provider from the beginning. Changing provider is a lengthy process and causes risk of downtime. There are also risks for income drops when customers experience a slow server and choose to close the web browser window.

We think that in terms of a customer coming on board, performance is number one. Some say that you get what you pay for. We want to prove the point that even though a web hosting solution is twice as expensive, it may be twice as slow as well.

The test is free and is available for downloading through our menu.
