The most reliable website for hosting companies as of November 2020 was New York Internet (NYI) which responded to all requests from Netcraft in November. NYI offers a comprehensive range of hybrid IT solutions for cloud, multi-cloud, colocation and bare metal in its US data centers. So far, NYI has made it into the top 10 seven times in 2020.
In November, the top eight locations each responded to all requests from Netcraft and were separated by the average connection time. Webair appeared in second place. The hosting provider has been offering managed hosting solutions for over 18 years and offers colocation in North America, Europe and Singapore.
Hyve Managed Hosting takes third place on the podium. Hyve offers a range of services, including cloud hosting, for businesses with comprehensive management services. These services are complemented by 35 data centers in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia.
While Linux continues to dominate the top 10, FreeBSD comes first with NYI in November.
Netcraft measures and provides the response times of around twenty websites from leading hosting providers. Performance measurements are taken at 15 minute intervals from various locations on the Internet and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.
From the customer’s point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more relevant than outages on the websites of the hosting company, as this gives an indication of the reliability of the routing. For this reason, we rank our table according to the fewest failed requests rather than the shortest downtime. If the number of failed requests is the same, the sites are ranked by average connection times.
Information on the measurement process and current measurements are available.
