Uptime Test – Week 150 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded a solid uptime performance this week, with 4 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (just 3 hosts achieved 100% in Week 149): 

  1. Kinsta
  2. Lightning Base
  3. SiteGround
  4. Pressidium

This week’s best performer in Asia Pacific is Kinsta, with a perfect uptime and the 2nd fastest average response time of 1,110ms.

We have now completed 10 weeks of testing with our 4 new premium hosts. With the exception of an extremely poor week for Lightning Base in Week 143, all of our hosts have performed quite well. When it comes to response times, the addition of WP Rocket has definitely helped make our budget hosts Lightning Base & SiteGround more competitive.

For next week’s test, I will be changing up our server locations for each host from America to Canada. This will help give our Canadian friends a true picture of which host is best from their perspective.
