HostTest 1.0 Ranking & Summary
HostTest 1.0 description
The HostTest application was designed to perform a speed test on your web hosting provider and shows the location of the server that is hosting your website.
- DNS lookup time:
This is the time it takes too look up the address your of DNS name (www.yourhost.com). It mainly exists to make sure your DNS lookup time is not much different than other websites. Compare it to other domain names and if your lookup time is consistently 2-3 times higher than other web sites, consider changing your dns registrar.
- Ping response:
Ping is used to determine network latency or response time. Low ping scores are ideal in that they can provide the time it takes to send and receive a network packet. The farther geographically a server is from you the longer ping it will likely have, thus a distant server with a short ping is ideal since it is probably close to a major hub and will seem responsive to visitors at any location. Although ping score is useful when comparing two similar hosts, the speed test is more revealing.
- Speed score:
This measures how fast a server can send files to you. While ping measures the initial response, our speed test measures the average rate that the server can send files over a period of time. Many factors can affect the speed score such as server hardware, network access and time of day. However a good server will score under 50 when measured from any major city at any time of day.
- Notes on finding a fast server :
Hosttest also comes with a map of the major U.S. internet hubs to give you an idea as to what type of network access your host has. Being close to a major hub is important as the last few hops from a hub to local ISP can make a significant difference.
