This is a short uptime scores update on some of the hosting services we are tracking right now. In summary, we have one perfect score for the past 30 days (100% uptime) – SiteGround; and plenty of others scoring above 99.98% (16 hosts to be exact). So here you go – the best 5 uptime score for month September. In case you wish to compare the results, here’s the link to our previous August uptime review.
First founded in 2004 by a group of IT enthusiast, SiteGround is a web hosting company with over ten years of experience providing shared hosting, cloud hosting and dedicated servers. Now run by Tenko Nikolov, SiteGround currently services more than 250,000 domains worldwide with 120 employees and three data centers located at US, Europe, and Singapore. They have datacenters in all three of these locations and utilize CentOS, Apache, MySQL, PHP and WHM/cPanel for their servers. No matter the server location SiteGround provides high performing and stable machines, offering server set-up, software updates, and machine monitoring. The company is also notable in that it has developed custom software solutions for account isolation, monitoring & reaction, and speed-optimization of its servers.
The SiteGround company maintains a “Philosophy of Handcraft”. This means that they provide high-quality services specially crafted to every client’s unique set of individual needs. In other words, there is no one size fits all package. Instead, SiteGround chooses hardware, crafts server architecture, and develops custom software solutions in a way that is innovative and specially tailored to clients’ needs.
We have just added HostMetro and IX in our tracking list not long ago. And we are adding more – CoolHandle is the latest newcomer (thanks Adam – appreciate the free account). So stay tuned and come back again next month for more uptime information.
