The annual Review Signal hosting benchmarks are in for 2021, and GreenGeeks has been recognized as a top-tier hosting company for our outstanding performance. For years, we have been improving our services to meet our customer’s needs.
And now our services are recognized among the best in the industry.
Our goal as a hosting company is simple; provide the best possible service we can without impacting the environment. And on both fronts, we are excelling.
To help the environment, we purchase three times the energy we use in clean wind energy. That means every website is actually carbon-negative! And as you are about to see in these tests, our web hosting services are among the best around.
What Is Review Signal?
Review Signal is a highly respected independent web hosting review site. It uses a variety of tests and properly gauges how effective web hosting companies are performing in specific areas.
These include a Load Storm test, which simulates heavy traffic on the website for visiting pages and logging in and out. The results provide the response time of the website and see if it can handle large spikes in traffic.
- K6, which tests the cached versions of the website
- uptime tests performed by two companies, Hetrix and Uptime Robot
- a webpage test from 12 locations around the world
- WP Bench and PHP benchmarking
- SSL testing
- and others
It’s a comprehensive review and provides some of the most accurate data available for each company.
What Is A Top Tier Hosting Company?
Review Signal declares all hosting companies that maintain a consistent 99.9% uptime during the testing period, the load testing has no impact on performance, and there are a minimal number of errors as top tier.
It is important to mention that factors like support, features, and environmental impact have no bearing on the results. These tests completely focus on performance.
The following section outlines the results of the individual tests and demonstrates why GreenGeeks is one of the best web hosting companies on the market.
