Netcraft measures and provides the response times of around twenty websites from leading hosting providers. Power measurements are taken at 15-minute intervals from various points on the Internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hours.
From a customer perspective, the percentage of failed requests is more meaningful than outages on hosting companies’ own websites, as it gives an indication of the reliability of the routing, and so we decided to rank our table by fewest failed requests rather than lowest downtime . If the number of failed requests is the same, the sites are ranked by average connection times.
Information on the measurement process and current measurements available.
