Report for 2018
|HRANK||# in TOP||Uptime, %||Response, ms||Sites, +(-)||Shared IPs, +(-)|
- In 2018 its performance wasn’t great either: 3.2 HRank and #214.
- Uptime chart reveals many downtime cases as bad as ~84%, ~88%, and ~97%. In some periods it was very unstable.
- Its response time was way better (300-400ms), however, the chart reveals a lot of instability as well.
- Thus, perhaps this explains why a certain number of websites left the provider in 2018.
