Uptime Test – Week 74 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded an solid uptime performance this week, with 5 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (3 hosts achieved 100% in Week 73):

  1. SiteGround
  2. InMotion Hosting
  3. Lightning Base
  4. HostGator
  5. Bluehost

This week’s best performer in Asia Pacific is SiteGround, with a perfect uptime and the second fastest average response time of 776ms.

The last time we tested from Asia Pacific with Cloudflare & W3 Total Cache setup (in Week 71), the average response time across our 8 hosts was 783ms, while this week with KeyCDN added, it is slightly slower at 864ms.

This is the third and final week of our KeyCDN, Cloudflare & W3 Total Cache Speed Study and the addition of KeyCDN has not had the type of improvement in response times as was expected.

Next week we will keep KeyCDN, but change over our Caching plugin. Will KeyCDN be able to turn around this performance and bring speed with another Caching plugin?
