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.

MDDHosting Performance Review

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.

Page Speed Test Results

This test measures the total time it takes to load a standard web page. Lower is better. Learn more about the Page Speed Test.

MDDHosting (full benchmark) performs okay in the Page Speed test, with an average result of 3.25 seconds. Its best run was 2.27 s, but has been as bad as 74.96 s. MDDHosting's most recent result on Mar 25 was 2.52 seconds. I had heard great things about MDDHosting, and I thought their speed would be on par, but it has proven to have some hiccups. Lately they've been alright, but back in October I was seeing load times of 10+ seconds - wow that's poor! Yet, they are one of the few hosts that has all their server settings optimized.

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

Uptime Test Results

This test is performed by measuring the % uptime of a host. Higher is better. Learn more about the Uptime Test.

MDDHosting (full benchmark) performs miserably 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 Mar 24 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.

Support Response Test Results

This test measures how quickly the host's support team responds to your request. Lower is better. Learn more about the Support Response Test.

MDDHosting (full benchmark) performs above average in the Support Response test, with an average result of 0.1 hours. Its best run was 0.1 h, but has been as bad as 0.2 h. MDDHosting's most recent result on Mar 2016 was 0.1 hours.
