Netcraft measures and provides the response times of around twenty websites from leading hosting providers. Performance measurements are taken at various locations on the Internet at 15 minute intervals and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.

From the customer’s point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more relevant than outages on the websites of the hosting company, as this gives an indication of the reliability of the routing. For this reason, we rank our table according to the fewest failed requests rather than the shortest downtime. If the number of failed requests is the same, the sites are ranked by average connection times.
