A Hosting Reliability Throwback

Oh How Times Have Changed

Below is an original post from Netcraft back in 2007 of the reliable hosting companies almost a decade ago.

New York Internet, Web.com and iWeb8 Most Reliable Hosting Companies In January 2007

Hosting Reliability 2007Ranking by Failed Requests and Connection time,
January 1st – 31st 2007

New York Internet, Web.com and iWeb8 Technologies are the most reliable hosting companies for January 2007, followed closely by 1&1 Internet AG, OLM, WestHost, Jumpline and Kattare.

New York Internet, a colocation specialist, also tied for the best performance last month, and has now finished atop the survey nine times since 2003. Web.com, which specializes in small business hosting, makes its first appearance at the top of the list since 2005, when it was known as Interland and was Most Reliable three times. iWeb8 is a Montreal-based hosting provider that also rebranded in 2006 (it was previously known as iWeb Technologies). iWeb8 is a public company that has grown through acquisition, buying eight other hosting companies since 1998.

Six of the 10 most most reliable hosts run their web sites on Linux, while three use FreeBSD and one is powered by Windows.

Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading hosting providers’ sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.

From a customers’ point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on the hosting companies’ own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why we choose to rank our table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage.
