Qube has been in the top ten for eight months so far this year. Qube recently selected Epsilon to deliver its CloudLX connectivity platform, which will offer its customers direct access to on-demand Ethernet services. took second place in October with just two failed requests. This managed hosting provider was recently awarded Editor’s Choice by Netzsieger’s 2016 hosting comparison for its product coverage, performance, security, and support.

Hyve Managed Hosting came in third place with just three failed requests in October. This UK-based hosting provider specialises in mission-critical hosting, which is reflected in their 100% uptime since we started monitoring in July. Fourth-place ServerStack and fifth-place CWCS also had three failed requests in October, with the tie being broken using the average connect time.

Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of around forty leading hosting providers’ sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.

From a customer’s point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on hosting companies’ own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why we choose to rank our table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage. In the event the number of failed requests are equal then sites are ranked by average connection times.

Information on the measurement process and current measurements is available.
