Uptime Test – Week 139 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded an impressive uptime performance this week, with 6 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (5 hosts achieved 100% in Week 138):

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

This week’s best performer in Latin America is Lightning Base, with a perfect uptime and the fastest average response time of 508ms.

The last time we tested from Latin America (with W3 Total Cache setup in Week 136), the average response time across our 8 hosts was 963ms, while this week with WP Rocket on board, it is noticeably faster at 619ms.

This is the second week of our WP Rocket Speed Study and after slightly favoring W3 Total Cache last week, WP Rocket has significantly taken control this week, when it comes to Response Times.

For the next week, I will change up our testing location to Asia Pacific. I wonder whether WP Rocket will continue this impressive turnaround?
