It’s time to check into how reliable our 8 WordPress Hosting providers have been this week.
Our location is worldwide, which means a mixture of North America, Europe & Asia Pacific. I’m looking forward to seeing how this balanced approach affects the results?
Uptime Test – Week 4 Method
- Compare 8 WordPress Hosts
- Use 8 Live Sites, each with a Different Host but with Identical Content (you can check them out here)
- Use Pingdom Uptime Test
- Location of Test: 10 Locations across North America, Europe & Asia Pacific
- Frequency of Testing: Every Minute across the Last 7 Days
- Total Number of Tests = 1 x60 x24 x7 x8 = 80,640 (xMinutes xHours xDays xSites)
- Uptime testing is confirming that the website is actually accessible to visitors
- An example of why an outage (or downtime) can occur is scheduled maintenance of the server the website is hosted on

Uptime Test – Week 4 Summary Table
There were 4 hosts that managed to ace the uptime this week (after 5 last week), congratulations to A2 Hosting, GoDaddy, InMotion Hosting and Bluehost.
Unfortunately, the longest streak of perfect uptime has been broken, with SiteGround receiving it’s first outage since these tests began a month ago.
