[Music] aah welcome welcome party people come on in and take a seat because the results are in my name is zero wilson and today in this video i’ll be showing you who is the fastest web hosting and also who is the slowest i recorded the performance of 22 different web hosting companies for 90 days and today in this video i’m going to show you who had the fastest page speed and also the best uptime i’ll be breaking this video down into three sections companies i don’t recommend companies that performed on average and companies that are very fast and i would recommend i have timestamps in the description of this video to each category so if you’re in a hurry feel free to jump to the best web hosting companies at any time so if you’ve seen other web hosting companies and you’re not sure if they’re fast or reliable obtain this video we are going to find out plus i have exclusive discounts for some of these web hosting companies that you will not find anywhere else on the internet now let’s be honest we’ve all been screwed we’ve all bought web posting that sucks now i spent around five thousand dollars performing this test to provide you all with real quality reviews so you can have real quality web hosting so if you do decide to use any of the links in the description below of this video it does help me make these tutorials for you for free so before we start let me show you how i got these results and let me answer a common myth with web hosting i purchased web hosting accounts from each of these companies and i installed the same size wordpress theme and starter website on each of these domains to provide a fair and accurate reading i then monitored the page speed of each of these websites every 30 minutes for 90 days straight i then recorded the uptime of the server and recorded every time the server went down for 90 days using pingdom pingdom is a web hosting monitor that records everything about your website and is known as the best resource for monitoring web hosting so today i’ll be mainly focusing on two specific categories page speed and downtime page speed is the time it takes for a website to load the lower the number the faster the server next is downtime downtime is how long the website went offline or was unavailable due to server issues the more downtime the less reliable the server is and for you techies out there i will also include the server response time which is the amount of time it takes for a web browser to receive a response from the web host but i’ll mainly be focusing on the page speed and the down time in this test now i also want to clarify what a lot of people ask me when they’re looking for web hosting most companies today offer packages you see terms like unlimited storage space and a meter bandwidth this is simply not true these companies do have a limit when it comes to web hosting you should always ask the web hosting company how much bandwidth or space is included in the package but most of these companies offer a reasonable amount of space and bandwidth and i’ll talk more about this in the video i’ll also be talking about renewal fees it’s important to know when you sign up for a web hosting company that you’re only paying the first to your sales price then your plan renews at a higher cost so that’s just something to consider when you’re shopping for web hosting first let’s talk about companies you should avoid if you are using any of these companies i highly recommend to switch now google recommends that your website should be loading at under three seconds so these next companies failed the basic google standard of web hosting and here they are number one is hostgator hostgator’s performance over the years has been notoriously bad hostgator had an average load time of 5.
5 seconds to load a website it had an hour of downtime with 35 outages over 90 days hostgator is owned by eig which has a long reputation of buying mom and pop shops of web hosting and watering them down in return for a profit i would avoid any web hosting company that is owned by eig next in motion hosting in motion hosting had the slowest speed on the list loading at around 6.
7 seconds and it also had 24 hours of downtime which is just crazy avoid this one at all cost next is bluehost yet another eig company bluehost had an average load time of 4 seconds but they had an average downtime of 23 minutes which actually isn’t that bad this is probably the least slowest company that is owned by eig but i would still not recommend it next host papa sadly this company used to be a lot faster at one point in my career i did recommend them hostpapa had an average load time of 3.
4 seconds with 33 minutes of downtime which is not that bad yet companies downgrade their servers and upgrade so hopefully next year i can say something positive about host papa next is ipage another eig company iph had an average load time of 4.
67 seconds with 20 hours of downtime yikes they do have dirt cheap prices but that’s probably because their service is terrible avoid this one at all costs if you can next mediatemple.net this company had a long history of being slow media temple’s average low time was around 4.
85 seconds with three hours of downtime over 90 days lastly tmd hosting this one really pains me because i used to promote this company a few years ago on a lot of my past wordpress tutorials tmd’s average load time was 3.
93 seconds with more than 7 hours of downtime over 90 days [Music] so those companies i do not recommend now these next companies they barely met the google standard of your site loading at around three seconds so with these next companies i’m personally neutral i don’t recommend them but i’m not really against them so if you want to try them out go for it first is chemicloud chemicloud barely met the google standard of a load time of around 2.
94 seconds but actually had some small downtime of around 10 minutes over 90 days the pricing is decent with their middle wordpress pro plan being around 100 for the year they also have some pretty low renewal fees next is fast comment known for their dedicated hosting fast commerce average load time on average was 2.
5 seconds they had two hours of downtime over 90 days which is a little bad in my opinion the prices are quite impressive you can get a year of hosting for as little as 70 bucks fast comment does offer a lot of pointless extras like search engine optimization for six dollars and fifteen dollars for a simple google site map which you can simply upload yourself for free personally i think fast comment is better for dedicated servers it actually has some very good dedicated server specs and deals that are worth your time i have a full video on that and i’ll leave that in the description below of this video next is godaddy what would a web hosting test be without godaddy godaddy barely met the google standards with low tides of 2.
98 seconds and had a terrible amount of downtime with 16 hours yikes godaddy recently changed its logo i’m not really sure what that’s all about but i think everyone knows them for their previous logo they are a large corporate company so now i think they rather peace with shareholders than offer top quality services for their customers i have never been able to figure out godaddy’s plans if you look at the ultimate plan it costs around 12.
99 but there is no difference from the maximum plan costing 19.99 godaddy has always had somewhat of a bad reputation but that also might be because they do have a large user base next is green geeks two years ago this was the fastest web hosting available but they have definitely slowed down with speed over the years green geek’s page speeds were around 2.
9 seconds on average with around 43 minutes of downtime over 90 days green geeks does offer some pretty good deals you can get a year of hosting for around 100 and 2 years of hosting for around 160 they also have some pretty low renewal fees so it’s not bad if you’re on a budget lastly get flywheel i’m a little disappointed in this one last year this company performed really well this year the company’s speed lacked i was very skeptical about putting get flywheel in this category but i think i should and i’ll explain why the average load time i had with get flywheel was around 2.
5 seconds they also had some good uptime at only 26 minutes of downtime but for the price you’re paying and the limits they give you i think these results should be a lot better to host 10 websites you’ll have to pay 115 a month without any upgrades you also need to migrate your website to get flywheel as they don’t offer and they don’t sell domains the results aren’t bad but for the price i think you can find something much better [Music] okay so these next 10 companies i personally recommend they perform better than every other hosting company on this entire list they had great speeds and good uptime so for these next 10 companies i’ll jump in the video and i’ll talk about why i like them and things i didn’t like about them as well welcome to the winners lounge now every company on this list i do recommend and i do have exclusive discounts for a lot of these companies and i’ll put those in the description below of this video coming at number 10 is kinsta now kinsa has always been just a rock solid web hosting company if you go to any facebook group or any poll kinsa is usually going to be like on the top 10 list somewhere they had an average low time of 1.
27 seconds with only five minutes of downtime which is very impressive now the only downside about kinsta is that they are expensive in fact they are the most expensive company on this entire list so for a hundred dollars a month you get about you know um five wordpress installs a hundred thousand visits which i think is the equivalent of around 200 gigs of bandwidth and you get around 30 gigs of disk space so although they are expensive the performance definitely makes up for it now if you are brand new to wordpress or hosting i do not recommend kinsa it’s more geared for people who are developers it’s more geared for people who have been in the game for a while you will have to migrate your website and even sometimes you will have to change some settings yourself the support can be questionable personally i think their support is not the best um but again that’s my personal experience but performance wise this company is amazing number nine is cloudways now cloudways performed really well so they had an average load time of 1.
37 seconds with only seven minutes of downtime over the last 30 days now cloudways is a little different than the other typical hosting companies so they work as a middleman for companies like amazon aws google cloud vulture even digitalocean they are a little expensive and you are better off going to those companies and doing it yourself however it’s a lot more technical it’s very complicated so cloudways is like more of the middleman to make sure everything goes easier they are also very expensive unfortunately so cloudways can get a little pricey but personally the performance again makes up for it so i would only recommend cloudwise for people who have been in the game for a while if you’re brand new to wordpress no i do not recommend cloudways but for people who have been in the game for a while cloudways is a very good choice for web hosting next we have a2 hosting and this is a suitable company for people who are brand new to wordpress now a2 hosting performed at around 2.
18 seconds with only an hour of downtime actually that is quite a long time an hour of downtime over uh the last um was it the last let’s see the last yeah the last 30 day 90 days they had about an hour of downtime um the pricing for a2 hosting is a little more expensive than cyc round they are a little bit more expensive than other hosting companies the renewal fees are decent though so when you look at the hosting plans you might want to look at their renewal fees so on average people usually get their turbo boost plan and that’s the one i used for this specific test so for about the year you’ll pay around 180 and when it’s time to renew you’ll pay around 20 the renewal fees for a2 hosting are not bad at all so if you do want to try out a2 they are definitely a website to check out coming in at number seven is wpx hosting now this company is fast and i got a lot of requests to do this company so i figured i would add it on my list wpx had an average load time of 643 ms which is probably the top three most fastest companies on this entire list now they did have a problem with their with their um their downtime unfortunately so uh this is actually our fault this was not their fault um we had a problem with listing their ip address but we got it fixed obviously but they did have around i want to say three hours of downtime over the last three months so all these red marks are down time unfortunately so they didn’t have a lot of spikes of downtime except for ours which was this right here which was which was our problem but they had around three hours of downtime over the last 90 days that is a little bit that’s a little you know that’s a little bit too much but again their speed definitely makes up for it so let’s take a look at their monthly plans so the monthly plans are not a bad deal so for the professional you do get 15 websites 20 gigs of storage and 200 gigs of bandwidth which is pretty much what kinsa is offering pretty much the same thing um the elite plan you can hold uh 35 websites with 40 gigs of storage and unlimited bandwidth i’m not really sure if that’s really unlimited they all say that but there’s usually always a catch for the price you pay it’s not bad the downtime is a little alarming to me in my book even though the speed is very fast so if you do want to try out wpx there is a link below to try them out the the speed of this company really surprised me i do wish they just had better uptime unfortunately um they just did have a lot of spikes of downtime over the last three months for just some amazing speed so uh yeah if you want to go ahead check them out the hostages where are they [Music] next we have psychron and cycron is a company that i have recommended over the years they are they are a reliable company now there is an elephant in the room and i will address that really quickly but first let’s talk about their specs so they had an average load time of 2.
24 seconds which is very similar to a2 hosting and they had around 11 minutes of downtime which really is not that bad at all let’s go ahead and take a look at their 90 day mark so we have the 90 days i think they had an hour or 30 minutes of downtime over three months that’s really not that bad to be honest so uh this company recently raised their prices and i’m very aware of that and people were saying they’re gonna leave cyclone because of that but their prices are still cheap when you compare them to other companies so siteground is still cheaper than a2 hosting so if you want a year of hosting on the grow big account you’ll pay around 150 for the entire year a2 hosting charges around 180 for that now i will say though their renewal fees are higher than a2 hosting so a2 hosting’s uh renewal fees are 20 a month and sitegrounds are 25 a month so that’s something that you might want to consider but what you’re really paying for with siteground is you’re paying for the support guys so everyone that uses this company they always say the same thing their support is just number one it’s just unbeatable if there’s a problem with your website these guys will usually fix it within the hour so they are really fast with the support because i’ve used other companies and you know how it goes you submitted tickets and then seven hours later did you clear your cash it’s like oh my gosh you know so uh siteground is definitely a website that is um you know it’s worth checking out i personally use siteground on my on my website and i do recommend them in my videos the renewal fees can be a little expensive so that’s just something to consider so uh siteground i definitely recommend them next we have wp engine wp engine performed one of the fastest on this whole list but again they are again the most expensive company on this list so siteground performed on average of a load time of 642 ms with only six minutes of downtime that is extremely impressive now the plans with the vp engine are very expensive so they are pretty much neck and neck with kinsta so for a hundred dollars a month um you get around 100 000 visits which is 200 gigs of bandwidth and it’s funny on their website they listed it twice so 200 gigs of bandwidth and then 100 000 visits okay we get that uh 20 gigs of storage which is really not that much to be honest um now i do have an exclusive discount for wp engine so normally if you go to their website you’ll pay 115 a month but through my link you’ll pay only 95 dollars a month so if you want to check out wp engine go ahead and check them out they had just amazing op no problem they had just amazing speeds and um they’re definitely worth it you know they are a little expensive just keep that in mind but for performance it definitely makes up for it next we have known hosts this company just kind of came out of the blue so someone in my facebook group said we should test out known host and i said guys this site looks old and it is old it’s very old the site looks really bad and i just i’m not a fan of their design but i said you know what i don’t care we have to test everybody we have to give everyone a fair chance and known hosts surprised me so they had an average low time of 1.
13 seconds with no downtime over the last 30 days very impressive now this company i’ll be very honest i’m not trying to attack them in any way but their support was really not that good i had a problem setting up my hosting account and it took around a few days i almost gave up on them but i went a step further and i said no we’re going to test you out you know we’re going to test it out so um the test the the package that i chose for my specific test was the standard shared hosting so i have an exclusive discount for the shared hosting so if you go to any of the shared hosting and use the code darryl 10 you will save 10 off off the entire purchase no matter how much uh time or whatever you spend so i’ll just do uh daryl 10 and redeem and the price drops by 35 that also works for dedicated servers that is a big discount guys so these guys gave me 10 off their dedicated servers companies do not usually give me that and this company did also we have 10 off their reseller hosting so the code darrell10 works for all of the reseller hosting uh the code daryl 60 works for their wordpress hosting so you will get 60 off their um their wordpress so uh let’s go to order now for their their host their their wordpress hosting and i will use the coupon code daryl 60 daryl 60 and redeem and you will save 60 off their hostings did that work sixty percent off there it goes oh there it goes there it goes a lot cheaper right so you do get sixty percent off the um the hosting also the code daryl 4030 provides 40 off the initial purchase or 30 discount for life for the managed vps and the cloud so i will put all of those in the description below they were nice enough to give me those discounts uh their performance was amazing their site i mean i’ll be honest their back end is a little old school so when you when you when you buy hosting through them and you go to the back end it is a little old school you can definitely tell this is a mom-and-pop shop hosting company but uh their speeds are incredible so definitely check out known host they are one website to consider next is liquid web now i guess they call it nexcess or liquid web it’s i i don’t i don’t know what to call it now so it’s nexus or liquid web now um i do have an exclusive discount for them as well if you guys use the code 35 you do get 35 off their plans now to be honest i think this is the best managed hosting on this entire list and i’ll explain why so their performance was around 963 ms which is under one second now i know there’s wp engine performed faster but guys you’re not going to ever see 200 ms with the human eye it’s like are you going to see a website load and say oh that was 250 ms oh that was 400 ms like you’re never going to see the difference so at this point you kind of want to see what’s the best value for money and also what you’re getting with the with your money so they had an average downtime of 1 minutes over the last 90 days wow impressive now the reason why this company blows the other ones out of the water is because you get a lot more with uh i guess you want to say nexus slash liquid web than other managed hosting companies so let’s take a look at their designer package which is their newest package they created today as i’m making this video so for a hundred dollars a month you get 60 gigs of storage let’s compare that to wp engine so for 100 a month you only get 20 gigs of storage so you get three times more storage with this company than you do with wp engine paying the same price now this is where uh nexus and liquid web just win everything four terabytes of bandwidth that is a lot so that is pretty much 2.
5 million monthly visits every single month but with these guys you only get around 200 gigabytes so a thousand gigabytes guys is one terabyte so do the math there you get what five times five times five times uh you get 20 times more bandwidth with liquid paying the same price so i just can’t really argue that that you’re not getting your money’s worth so if you are looking for managed wordpress hosting and you have a lot of traffic and you need a lot of space this company is definitely i think the number one company to go with you also do get a 14 day free trial so that link in the description below will give you a free trial and a discount off your first three months of hosting so yeah go with them guys they are amazing number two we have name hero now name hero is the most cost effective company on this entire list so if you’re looking for fast web hosting that’s cheap name here was probably one of your best bets now their average load time was 1.
98 seconds and they only had 14 minutes of downtime over the last three months which is pretty good now name here worked out an exclusive discount for me so you will get 70 off any of their packages now you will not find this discount anywhere else on the internet you will not find it on any other youtube channel this is the only place where you will find the largest discount for name here so let’s just take a look at their at their plan let’s just do their their turbo cloud now one thing i do recommend is um if you are gonna sign up for name hero try to sign up for a long period because there is a renewable fee but if you lock in like their three-year deal at 5.
99 that works out for the like the three years so uh there is a renewal fee but that renewal fee will not apply until after your three years is over so you want to try to go as long as possible so let’s just sign up for three years at 5.
99 i will type in a gibberish domain continue and continue and uh we’ll do ied protection i always recommend that in all my videos so for three years of hosting with name hero you’re only going to pay around 218 bucks which is again the most cost effective on this entire list and their performance is amazing so if you do want to try um you know name hero definitely check them out they use lightspeed servers they are known for having just good uptime very fast and um this discount is exclusive to my channel so there are a lot of copycats out there guys who say oh i have the best discount no you can contact named hero and ask them who has the best discounts it will save my channel so a name hero definitely they are worth checking out [Music] and coming in at number one is hostinger now hostinger performed one of the best now they also offer a lot more than typical web hosting companies so their low time on average was 1.
15 seconds and they had only about one minute of downtime now i’m gonna explain why i rank hosting or number one compared to other web hosting companies so i use their wordpress hosting plan so if you go to hosting and you go to wordpress hosting this is the plan that i use for this specific test you get a hundred gigs of disk space which is pretty much that’s more than pretty much every the company on this entire list and you also do get unlimited bandwidth now i contacted them about this because a lot of companies say that and they say that um for the typical website that they will give you unlimited bandwidth and if you get like millions and millions and millions of visits they might have to throttle your website but for something around like half a million visitors uh this plan is suitable so that is very cost effective it’s also a light speed server so lightspeed servers are known to be the fastest and you can tell just by looking at the statistics now i do have an exclusive discount for hostinger for all of their plans in the description below uh this pl this discount is bigger than any other discount you will find on the internet as well i’m very lucky to have such massive discounts so i’ve seen other channels where they say they have better discounts and that’s not true so if you guys use the code daryl over here you guys will save 10 off so the price goes from 155 to 139 and this works for pretty much any plan so if you want to do it for 24 months you can do that if you want to do it for 48 months the plan works or the discount works for all of their plans so a hostinger is just uh their plans are amazing what they give to their customers is very good they speak like 40 languages and if you’re looking for cheap hosting uh i mean 139 dollars for a year of wordpress hosting for these results i would have to say is the best value for your money so again i rank hosting your number one this year i think that’s uh their performance is great i think that their uptime was amazing and their prices are super cheap so let’s go take a look at their other plans really quick so if you want to go ahead and go to their cloud for even faster hosting that coupon code again works for their cloud hosting so let’s go to their let’s go to their most popular cloud professional and if we use the code again we will still save 10 off so let’s take a look at their 12 months and for those of you who want to upgrade to their cloud you want just even faster uh web hosting that coupon code daryl will work for all of their plans so you will save 10 off anything off their website so uh toho singer thanks for giving me that discount and if you guys are looking for just very fast hosting i definitely recommend hosting here they are my number one recommendation this year so party people i hope this test helped you out i spend thousands of dollars and a lot of time uh months making this test so i hope it helped you out and i do try to contact these companies to get you guys discounts because i know it can be a little expensive when you’re shopping for web hosting so make sure to like this video now on a more personal note these tests are the most accurate way to measure a web hosting performance so if you do come across blogs or other channels where they say that these tests are not true that is simply not true and they’re just trying to sell you now also for these discounts these are exclusive discounts only for me and my channel so the discount for hostinger and name hero you will not find a bigger discount anywhere else so i just want to make that very clear for my audience so if you do see people out there saying that they have a 10 discount uh i actually have the 10 discount and it is the largest discount available for host singer and also the 70 discount for name hero is exclusive to me and my channel so what are you still doing here go get web hosting i’ll see you later bye
