iWeb among the most reliable networks in June 2012 according to Netcraft

Published on July 12, 2012 at 2:25 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

Netcraft, a site that measures reliability, uptime and network performance, has ranked as one of the most reliable web hosting companies in June 2012. Also present among the most reliable networks for the previous month, iWeb has regularly appeared in the top ten over the past year.

Netcraft’s measurements will allow you to evaluate reliability of data transfer. The reliability performance is monitored every 15 minutes, from several reference points.

According to Netcraft, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent from a customer’s point of view than outages on hosting companies’ own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why they choose to rank their table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage.

Netcraft is a British Internet services company that provides internet security services and research data and analysis on many aspects of the Internet since 1995. It is a respected authority on the market share of web servers, operating systems, hosting providers, ISPs, encrypted transactions, electronic commerce, scripting languages and content technologies on the internet.

The complete analysis is available on Netcraft’s website.
