This will help boost the speed of each test site
Some of the links on this page are affiliate links, which means that if you decide to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. I test each product thoroughly and use performance based rankings. We are independently owned and the opinions expressed here are our own. Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site.
Each week speed & uptime tests are run using independent tools, GTmetrix & Pingdom. To eliminate the chance of location bias, I change up the test location each week; progressing from USA, UK, India, Canada & Australia.
The Speed Test checks how long it takes for a website to fully load using a desktop internet browser. As website owners, we want our site to load as quickly as possible.
The Uptime Test confirms that the website is actually accessible to visitors. As website owners, we want the uptime to be as close to 100% as possible.
