New York Internet was the most reliable hosting company site during February 2009, failing to respond to only one of the requests made by Netcraft's performance collectors throughout the month.

New York Internet was closely followed by UK2, Server Intellect, WebFusion and Pair Networks; each of which failed to respond to two requests in February.

This month's victory marks a hat trick for New York Internet, which also came joint first in the previous two months: January and December.

Established in 1996, New York Internet is located in the heart of the Wall Street area and owns and maintains its own data centers. The company's core services include dedicated servers, colocation and virtual web hosting. The company's main website is served by Apache running on FreeBSD.

FreeBSD is used by three of February's most reliable hosting company sites, with another three using Linux and one using Windows Server 2003.

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 customer's point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on 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.

Further information on the measurement process and current measurements are available.
