What statistics we measured with HostPapa and why?

Choosing a web host is never easy, especially when you are a beginner who is about to purchase their first web host. There are so many providers to choose from!

Based on longterm testing, HostPapa delivered the 99.95% uptime on average and loading speed was 0.71 seconds.

Uptime shows how much of the time a website is available to customers. It is important to mention that there’s no such thing as 100% uptime. Servers require maintenance and that’s why tiny instances when website is unavailable can appear. Anyway it is vital your provider’s uptime is as close to 100% as possible.

Loading speed is very important too, especially in today's fast-paced world. If your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, there is a 53% chance your customers will leave.
