Report for 2018

HRANK# in TOPUptime, %Response, msSites, +(-)Shared IPs, +(-)
  • The provider got 8.5 HRank rating in 2018 and appeared on the 31st position.
  • In our experience, their performance was good, nothing to complain much about. As one can see on the uptime charts, there was only one clear downtime case (99.286%) since June 2018. Truth to be told, the performance can’t be called smooth; however, it was quite ok, never getting lower than 99%.
  • HostMonster’s response time from the domains in 2018 can also be characterized as good average (around 600ms), though in June 2018 it was much slower (though, the period was very short, luckily).
  • Though,  the number of Shared IPs didn’t change much since we started monitoring till December; however, the number of domains hosted on them decreased considerably (by 20,000 as of December 2018 compared to June 2018). Looks like some customers did leave unsatisfied.
