As of March 2021, GoDaddy had the most reliable hosting company site with no failed requests and the fastest average connection time in the top 10 of 6 ms. GoDaddy offers services that customers can use to build their own web presence, including hosting solutions, domain registration, and a website builder designed for ease of use. In February, GoDaddy acquired Poynt to accelerate its strategy of delivering a full suite of commerce and payments services.
The top three sites each had no failed requests and were separated by the average connection time. Rackspace came in second with an average connection time of 7 ms, just 1 ms slower than GoDaddy. Rackspace offers a variety of cloud services from its global network of over 50 locations on five continents. CWCS Managed Hosting takes third place on the podium. CWCS offers a wide range of hosting services from its UK ISO 27001, ISO 9001 and Cyber Essentials certified data centers that are 100% renewable energy.
While Linux continues to dominate the top 10, FreeBSD ranks fifth with NYI in March.
Netcraft measures and provides the response times of around twenty websites from leading hosting providers. Performance measurements are taken at various locations on the Internet at 15 minute intervals 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 about the measurement process and current measurements are available.
