HostForLIFEASP.NET ASP.NET Core 2.0 Hosting Testing Speed
We’ve tested more than 25 different shared hosts so far. We have to admit that we’ve seen nothing like this before. The site that we hosted on HostForLIFEASP.NET Hosting took just 165 ms to load up fully! And it wasn’t like it was a very light site, either.
This essentially makes HostForLIFEASP.NET ASP.NET Core 2.0 Hosting the fastest shared hosting that we’ve ever tested. And we are on their basic plan (Classic plan). So, considering our plan doesn’t even get the additional advanced speed-boosters like memcached and all that’s included in their “Budget or Economy” hosting plans (more expensive) makes it an incredible feat for their most basic plan.
We ran the page load test multiple times in a day and from multiple locations, and the results remained consistent throughout all of them, no matter which time of the day we were performing the test at.
The particular site we have hosted with HostForLIFEASP.NET ASP.NET Core Hosting is yet to experience a single downtime in the past 4 months. This is one of the rarest occasions when we’ve experienced true 100% uptime for several months at a stretch.
Apart from that, HostForLIFEASP.NET ASP.NET Core Hosting also has the standard 99.9% uptime guarantee. Though we forgot about uptime even being a thing since we started hosting the site with HostForLIFEASP.NET. After a while, it became so ridiculous that we were feeling like wasting money paying Pingdom for uptime monitoring because we were never once getting the much-dreaded “Pingdom Alert” email.
