Netcraft has ranked UK2.net as the 6th most reliable hosting company site in the month of August.
August certainly has been a great month for UK2.net. We have been making a number of improvements to our site and the results (obviously) have paid off. We have managed to outshine a number of our competitors sites such as Godaddy, Poundhost & Softlayer to name a few.
This extract is taken from Netcraft’s site and explains how they rank the sites based on performance: “Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of around forty 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.”
The UK2 Group has data centres in the UK and the USA – a factor which was also considered when deciding on the top performing sites.
