New York Internet (NYI) had the most reliable hosting company website in September 2019, responding to all of Netcraft's requests. This is the fourth time NYI has appeared in the top 10 in 2019. NYI offers bare metal, cloud and colocation services in its US data centers, and recently expanded into the Chicago market with the acquisition of a new data center.

The next five hosting company sites also responded to all of our requests, and are separated in the ranking by their average connection time. Second-placed EveryCity has had 99.998% uptime since Netcraft started monitoring 5 years ago and is the only site Netcraft is monitoring that is powered by SmartOS.

Third place was close with ServerStack claiming the position with an average connection time of 83.6ms—just half a millisecond faster than Hyve Managed Hosting in fourth place. ServerStack has now appeared in the top 10 for five consecutive months.

In sixth place, Choopa.com failed to respond to a single request but had the fastest average connection time of 5.2ms. This was closely followed by Rackspace, with an average connection time of 5.5ms.

FreeBSD and SmartOS appear in first and second place in September, with New York Internet (NYI) and EveryCity. The eight hosting company sites that complete the top 10 are powered by Linux.

Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of around twenty 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. In the event the number of failed requests are equal then sites are ranked by average connection times.

Information on the measurement process and current measurements is available.

GoDaddy had the most reliable hosting company site in August 2019, with no failed requests and the fastest average connection time of 4ms. This is the second time in three months that GoDaddy has had the most reliable hosting company site. GoDaddy provides a wide range of hosting and domain registration services with 9 global data centres.

The top six hosting company sites each responded to all of Netcraft's requests and are separated by their average connection time. CWCS appears in second place in August and has been in the top 10 for three consecutive months. Italy-based hosting company Aruba appeared in sixth place. Aruba uses renewable energy, including hydro-electric and solar energy, to provide power to its green data centres, ensuring these data centres are energy efficient with zero net carbon impact.

Despite the decline of FreeBSD, it continues to appear in the top 10, as it powers the hosting company site for New York Internet (NYI). Windows Server 2012 also makes an appearance, but Linux continues to dominate, powering eight of the top 10 sites.

In July 2019 Rackspace had the most reliable hosting company site, with no failed requests and an average connection time of 5ms. Rackspace offers a range of managed dedicated and cloud hosting solutions from data centres in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia. In the past six months, Rackspace has had the most reliable hosting company site three times and been in the top 10 each month.

Bigstep, ServerStack and Pair Networks complete the top four, each responding to all of Netcraft's requests in July. These companies are therefore ranked by their average connection time. Bigstep offers "bare metal" cloud hosting to provide the flexibility of cloud hosting but without the associated overhead and performance reductions of virtualization.

The six sites that complete the top 10 each failed to respond to a single request by Netcraft in July. GoDaddy came in fifth place with the fastest average connection time among all monitored providers of 4ms.

SmartOS and FreeBSD each make an appearance in the top 10 but Linux continues to dominate, powering eight of the top 10 sites in July.

Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of around twenty 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.
