Netcraft releases reliability report

Sun, 29th April 2007, 13:25

Each year Netcraft releases a reliability report of a number of web hosting providers. The new providers included this year are DataPipe, Navisite, and iWeb8.

The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate locations around the internet with averages being calculated every 24 hours.

The report is available here. Results show that three of the ten most most reliable hosts run their web sites on Windows, five on Linux and two on FreeBSD.

Netcraft provides webserver and -hosting market-share analysis including web server and operating system detection and their service is in some cases, depending on the queried server's operating system, able to monitor uptimes. Uptime performance monitoring is a commonly used factor in determining the reliability of a web hosting provider.
