March – April 2014 is the month of 100% uptime. I have got two sites scoring 100% uptime (InMotion, WP Engine) for the past 30 days and 8 sites coming extremely close at above 99.95% uptime (Rose Hosting, SiteGround, FatCow, iPage, Media Temple, HostMonster, BlueHost, InMotion Hosting – shared hosting).
Here goes the uptime chart for the Top 3 host in month March/April – InMotion (VPS), WP Engine, and Rose Hosting.
Based in both Carlifonia and Virginia, InMotion Hosting (http://www.inmotionhosting.com) has been around for more than a decade (established in year 2001). The company offers a wide range of different hosting solutions – shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting plans. What you are seeing in the chart is the uptime record of this site – WebHostingSecretRevealed.net and it scores a perfect 100% for the past 30 days.
WP Engine is a very special web host company that focuses only on one niche: WordPress Hosting. Its entire hosting system runs literally on a WordPress platform (no cPanel, domain manager, phpAdmin, etc). If your site is not running on WP, you will have to host your site elsewhere.
Rose Hosting (http://www.rosehosting.com/), a Missouri-based hosting company, is one of the earlist VPS hosting providers in the market. Attached is the uptime chart for Rose Hosting for the past 30/7/1 day(s) – as you can see, this host is extremely reliable and consistent. To enjoy a recurring 25% discount on their shared and VPS hosting plans, simply apply coupon code ‘WHSR’ when you make your order.

Two new hosts were added into my tracking list in March – Maecy Hosting and Arvixe. Both companies were kind enough to spare us a free trial account (big thank you to you guys!) Stay tuned for more uptime details and hosting reviews in near future.
