With Simple Cache on board, which host is up and about this week in Europe?
Uptime Test – Week 103 Method
- Compare 8 WordPress Hosts
- Use 8 Live Sites, each with a Different Host but with Identical Content (you can check them out here)
- Use Pingdom Uptime Test
- Location of Test: 10 European Locations
- Frequency of Testing: Every Minute across the Last 7 Days
- Number of Weekly Tests = 1 x60 x24 x7 x8 = 80,640 (xMinutes xHours xDays xSites)
- Uptime testing is confirming that the website is actually accessible to visitors
- An example of why an outage (or downtime) can occur is scheduled maintenance of the server the website is hosted on

Uptime Test – Week 103 Summary Table
Our hosts have recorded a poor uptime performance this week, with just 3 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (4 hosts achieved 100% in Week 102):
This week’s best performer in Europe is Bluehost, with a perfect uptime and an average response time of 478ms.
The last time we tested from Europe (with WP Rocket setup in Week 100), the average response time across our 8 hosts was 420ms, while this week with Simple Cache on board, it is noticeably slower at 556ms.
This is the second week of our Simple Cache Speed Study and WP Rocket is comfortably outperforming Simple Cache when it comes to Response Times.
Next week we change up the test location to Asia Pacific, I wonder whether Simple Cache will be able to turn things around?
And this Week’s Winner is…
After 2 years of testing, let’s summarize all the results to see how our 8 hosts are performing overall. It will also allow us to find out which host is currently leading our uptime challenge.
