Uptime Test – Week 148 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded a lights out uptime performance this week, with all 6 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (5 hosts also achieved 100% in Week 147): 

  1. Flywheel
  2. WP Engine
  3. Kinsta
  4. Pressidium
  5. SiteGround
  6. Lightning Base

This week’s best performer in Asia Pacific is Flywheel, with a perfect uptime and the fastest average response time of 1,040ms.

We have now ticked over 8 weeks of testing with our 4 new premium hosts. Just like last week, the addition of WP Rocket has definitely evened the playing field for our budget hosts Lightning Base & SiteGround when it comes to response times.

And once again, we’ve had another bumper uptime performance. This is so refreshing compared to previous years where are poor performing budget hosts regularly experienced downtime.

For next week’s test, I will change up our testing location to North America. Will our hosts continue their stellar run of staying up and about?
