Uptime Test – Week 14 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded an impressive uptime performance, with 6 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime:

  1. GoDaddy
  2. SiteGround
  3. DreamHost
  4. Bluehost
  5. InMotion Hosting
  6. Web Hosting Hub

GoDaddy takes the win this week in Europe, being the fastest of those with 100% Uptime!

A2 Hosting has incurred another outage after 3 last week. They continue to record the fastest Average Response Time, but until A2 Hosting can start recording 100% Uptime’s, they better get used to sitting in the bottom half of the table.

SiteGround shows it is indeed possible to regularly achieve perfect Uptime – having now reached this summit 13 of the 14 weeks!!
