Report for 2018

HRANK# in TOPUptime, %Response, msSites, +(-)Shared IPs, +(-)
  • HRank: 3.4. #188 is what WestNIC.net gained from us in 2018. Not the best result, and definitely what would large companies we mentioned at the top of the page expect from it.
  • As a matter of fact, the provider’s uptime was ok in 2018 but for 2 downtimes of 85% and 77%. The latter two affected the overall rank of the provider in the most negative way.
  • Nevertheless, the response time was in the range of 500ms, which is a way better result than many other providers demonstrated in 2018.
  • The Sites chart demonstrates a gradual decrease in the number of websites. It looks like websites were leaving the provider for some reason (non-related to 2 downtime cases, apparently). Unfortunately, it’s hard to say why.
