Hosting performance charts (live) and historical data

 
The purpose of this page is to show you the live charts displaying performance of all the hosts I monitor in one place. Also on this page I put together historical data on the hosting performance.

These hosts participate in Monthly Hosting Performance Contests. Each month I put together performance rating of the hosts according to the performance monitoring methodology. The results of the monthly Contests I put on this page.

Continuous monitoring like that is very important because otherwise it’s hard to find out how your hosting really performs. While you may notice some issues when visiting your website, you can’t do it every minute all days and night long. And this is what can be done by the automatic performance monitoring that I run using a professional web application monitoring service monitis.com.

By the way, the best hosting I’ve ever met during my researches and managing websites (I’ve been using more than one hundred hosts) are on my recommended hosting list.

I determine the best hosts by a number of factors among them performance (reliability, uptime, speed) is just a part of it. Very important factors are also customer support, ethics of hosting companies, their reputation among their current and former clients and professional hosting community.


Live charts displaying the current performance of hosting

I’ve moved this section for more convenience and better browsing experience. So, please visit this page to see the interactive charts. The charts display the hosting performance in real time (uptime and speed of my test websites).
