Uptime Test – Week 158 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded an impressive uptime performance this week, with 5 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (all 6 hosts also achieved 100% in Week 157): 

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

This week’s best performer in Asia Pacific is WP Engine, with a perfect uptime and the fastest average response time of 1,190ms. 

We have now completed 18 weeks of testing with our 4 new premium hosts. It’s interesting to observe how closely bunched our 6 hosts are, with Response Times all between 1,190ms and 1,360ms. Following 3 weeks of slow response times, SiteGround has now responded with 3 weeks of competitive performances, the addition of WP Rocket is clearly helping. 

For next week’s test, I will change up our test location to North America. Will SiteGround continue its improved response times?
