This is the third appearance atop the survey this year for iWeb Technologies Inc, a Montreal-based hosting provider that has grown through acquisition, buying eight other hosting companies since 1998. iWeb offers shared hosting, dedicated servers, colocation and domain registration. It had earnings of $637,000 on revenues of 2.3 million for the quarter that ended March 31.
Datapipe, NewYork Internet and iNetU each make regular appearances on our reliability leaderboard, and continue their strong performance this month. Swishmail, which provides business e-mail services, makes its first appearance in the top 10 this month.
Four of the 10 most most reliable hosts run their web sites on Windows, two on Linux and three on FreeBSD.
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.
Fuller information on the measurement process and current measurements are available.
