Why you need to trust our data?

We run WordPress optimization service for our clients through our agency and worked extensively on all major hosting servers.

We also run 24×7 monitoring services for our client sites. Thus, we end up paying over $250+ month to track our sites through Pingdom, Uptime.com, and dot-comtools.com

Here is our data and don't forget to read how we calculated these metrics at the end.

Note: The above table contains affiliate links. That means, If you click and ended up buying a host, I'll be paid a fee from above-recommended companies. This process will not add any additional costs to you.

Some common questions answered below.

1. Why I choose the above particular companies alone?

We don't own none of the above sites. We asked permission from clients to collect such data from their servers, so we only displayed data of hosting companies to which I have got access. This list will be expanded once we test any new hosts.

2. What is first TTFB and cached TTFB?

First TTFB is usually calculated with an Uncached version of the page. The Cached TTFB is calculated after multiple visits to the same page.

You can see the first TTFB is 237ms while the cached TTFB is 212ms. By calculating above thing, we can understand how well the server responds while making multiple visits to the page.

Remember, lower the TTFB faster the server.

3. What is average response time?

We ping all our clients every second from 100+ server locations in the US, UK, Asia, and Australia. The tool calculates the latency and logs how fast the server responds to our visits.

Lower the response time value, faster is the servers.

Below is the sample of our site response time from multiple locations.
