The most reliable hosting company site in June 2020 belonged to Choopa.com, with no failed requests and the fastest average connection time. Choopa.com offers cloud hosting, dedicated hosting and colocation in its own primary facility in Piscataway, New Jersey as well as smaller facilities in Los Angeles, Amsterdam, and Tokyo.
The top four sites each responded to all of Netcraft’s requests in June and were separated by average connection time. Webair, ServerStack and Pair Networks complete the top four. Webair provides colocation as well as managed cloud services from its data centres in New York, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Amsterdam. ServerStack has now appeared in the top 10 for the past five consecutive months.
Linux was still the most popular operating system of choice and dominated as it is used by nine of the top 10. EveryCity, however, uses SmartOS, a community fork of OpenSolaris geared towards cloud hosting using KVM virtualisation.
Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of around twenty leading hosting providers’ sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.
From a customer’s point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on hosting companies’ own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why we choose to rank our table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage. In the event the number of failed requests are equal then sites are ranked by average connection times.
Information on the measurement process and current measurements is available.
