Report for 2018

HRANK# in TOPUptime, %Response, msSites, +(-)Shared IPs, +(-)
  • Web4Africa managed to score only 2.9 HRank last year and became #226 on our list. Very close to the bottom line, we are afraid.
  • Frequent downtimes as bad as 95% and 93% marked the 2018 provider’s chart. And the problem so characteristic to many other web hositngs was also present – instability.
  • Another problem that made Web4Africa lose its HRank points is slow response time from the domains on Shared IPs. The average was 1,000ms – 1,500ms.
  • Hence, the decreasing trend in the number of Shared IPs and in the number of websites in 2018. Looks like that despite being #1 in Africa and the best effort, they still need to improve their performance.
