Uptime Test – Week 89 Summary Table

Our hosts have recorded a very impressive uptime performance this week, with 7 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (4 hosts achieved 100% in Week 88):

  1. InMotion Hosting
  2. Bluehost
  3. Namecheap
  4. SiteGround
  5. Web Hosting Hub
  6. GoDaddy
  7. Lightning Base

This week’s best performer in Asia Pacific is InMotion Hosting, with a perfect uptime and the 2nd fastest average response time of 687ms.

The last time we tested from Asia Pacific with MaxCDN, Cloudflare & WP Super Cache setup (in Week 86), the average response time across our 8 hosts was 1,918ms, while this week with W3 Total Cache replacing WP Super Cache, it is significantly faster at 759ms.

This is the third and final week of our MaxCDN, Cloudflare & W3 Total Cache Speed Study and W3 Total Cache has clearly outperformed WP Super Cache when it comes to our host’s response times.

Next week we will reset for 2018 and turn off all caching and CDN optimizers. This will help us set the baseline for all the new Speed Studies planned for 2018.
