StableHost's claim to fame is their stability. They've been around since 2009 and host around 32,000 domains. They have data centers located in Phoenix, Arizona; Chicago, Illinois; and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Here's the plan information I chose:

This test measures how quickly the host's support team responds to your request. Lower is better.
I personally contact each host's support department with a new question/concern and measure how long it takes for them to get back to me.
This test is important for every host - it's imperative your web host is able to quickly address your concerns in a timely manner, even if you're an expert webmaster. Who wants to deal with a host that has poor customer service? Tech is hard, and tech support is critical!
StableHost (full benchmark) performs great in the Support Response test, with an average result of 0.4 hours. Its best run was 0.1 h, but has been as bad as 1.7 h. StableHost's most recent result on Mar 2016 was 0.2 hours. Stablehost's tech team is top notch not just in their speed and uptime knowledge, but in their response time too. You can count on the fact that Stablehost will get back to you within a couple hours - and most likely a few minutes.
