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.

This test measures the total time it takes to load a standard web page. Lower is better.
If you're really interested, I use the 'Load Time' measurement that's returned from WebPageTest for ranking page speed. I still collect other metrics such as TTFB (time to first byte), fully loaded time, and the speed index, in addition to server setting scores which are translated to grades. You can see these detailed values in the "Raw Results."
This test is important if your site resembles a typical website and you're concerned about speed (which you should be!)
MDDHosting (full benchmark) performs mediocre in the Page Speed test, with an average result of 3.29 seconds. Its best run was 2.27 s, but has been as bad as 74.96 s. MDDHosting's most recent result on Apr 30 was 2.62 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:
|Date||Location||Load time||TTFB||Fully loaded||Speed index||Keep-alive Score||Compress Score||Caching Score|

Yes, I do use affiliate links on this site to help cover the cost of testing and many monthly server charges. Results are 100% unbiased and never skewed to favor a higher commission. Thanks for understanding :)
