With everything turned off, which host will be the most reliable this week in Europe?
Uptime Test – Week 91 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 European Locations
- Frequency of Testing: Every Minute across the Last 7 Days
- Number of Weekly 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 91 Summary Table
Our hosts have recorded a poor uptime performance this week, with just 4 hosts achieving the ultimate goal of 100% Uptime (7 hosts achieved 100% in Week 90):
- Lightning Base
This week’s best performer in Europe is GoDaddy, with a perfect uptime and the fastest average response time of 466ms.
The last time we tested from Europe with MaxCDN, Cloudflare & W3 Total Cache setup (in Week 88), the average response time across our 8 hosts was 458ms, while this week with all speed improvement plugins removed, it is understandably slower at 1,623ms.
This is the second week of resetting the 2018 baseline speeds in preparation for new Speed Studies. Next week we will change up our test location to Asia Pacific, once again expecting a big dropoff in speed.
And this Week’s Winner is…
After 2 years of testing, let’s summarize all the results to see how our 8 hosts are performing overall. It will also allow us to find out which host is currently leading our uptime challenge.
