Real Web Hosting Stats

I'm disgusted with fake hosting "reviews." Here are the results of real performance tests I run regularly on top shared hosts.

Is MDDHosting reliable? MDDHosting Uptime Stats

MDDHosting is small but prides themselves in providing high quality services and support. They've been around since 2007 and currently host over 12,000 domains. Their data center is located in Denver, Colorado.

I have purchased a hosting plan on MDDHosting and set up a typical web site. I use that example website to run these tests. Learn more about how I test.

Here's the plan information I chose:

Plan NameBasic
Cost$7.50/month
Disk Space5GB
Bandwidth250GB
Uptime Guarantee99.9%
Money-Back Guarantee30 days
NotesSite was ready within minutes after I purchased.

Uptime Test

This test is performed by measuring the % uptime of a host. Higher is better.

I use Pingdom to report website uptime. Pingdom is configured to make an HTTP request to the host every minute, and report if it is unreachable. It'll also report an error if the host takes longer than 30 seconds to respond (Yes, that's not actually down, but if your site takes that long to respond it is unusable in my opinion). Pingdom performs this test from at least 3 servers worldwide, and reports a problem if 2/3 servers do no respond.

This test is important if you are concerned about the reliability of your web host (this is important!)

MDDHosting Uptime Test Results

MDDHosting (full benchmark) performs pretty poorly in the Uptime test, with an average result of 99.87 percent. Its best run was 100.00 %, but has been as bad as 88.75 %. MDDHosting's most recent result on Jan 18 was 100.00 percent. MDD has pretty average uptime reliability. Some hosts are more stable. Some are way worse. MDDHosting falls in the middle.MDDHosting does knock my socks off when it comes to their tech support. The longest I've ever had to wait for a response was 11 minutes. That's incredible. They must have a full staff working round the clock! Nice job, MDD.

Let's see if MDDHosting is consistent in its uptime stats:
