Report for 2018
# in TOP
However, the provider was not ranked highly in our chart for 2018 – 4.8 and appeared on the100th position).
Its performance wasn’t bad but it wasn’t very impressive either since we started monitoring (June 2018) till December 2018, especially if you take the number of domains hosted into consideration. They had only one serious case of downtime in December (97.729%), other cases were not lower than 99.9%; yet, its general downtime chart can’t be called perfect.
Their response time was slowerthan the average, and some of the Shared IPs wasn’t responding for many hours (the data for the last 30 days, as of January 4, 2019).
They lost a number of domains and reduced the number of Shared IPs throughout the summer, however, since then and till December not much changed.
