Pingdom Logo

  • Location of Test: 10 Latin American Locations
  • Plugins Installed: Simple Cache
  • 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 124 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded a solid uptime performance this week, with 5 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (7 hosts achieved 100% in Week 123):

  1. Lightning Base
  2. SiteGround
  3. GoDaddy
  4. Bluehost
  5. HostGator

This week’s best performer in Latin America is Lightning Base, with a perfect uptime and the fastest average response time of 476ms.

The last time we tested from Latin America (with WP Fastest Cache setup in Week 121), the average response time across our 8 hosts was 730ms, while this week with Simple Cache on board, it is slightly slower at 790ms.

This is the second week of our Simple Cache Speed Study and its looking as though WP Fastest Cache is quicker than Simple Cache, when it comes to Response Times.

For the next week, I will change up our test location to Asia Pacific. This is the last chance for Simple Cache to outperform WP Fastest Cache, will it happen?
