CHICAGO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Hostway Corporation, a leading provider
of Web hosting and managed services, has been chosen by Netcraft as the most
reliable hosting company site for the third month this year. This respected
Web hosting industry authority selected http://www.Hostway.com as the most
reliable Web site for hosting providers based on the lowest number of failed
requests and speed of connection time.
"Our customers' number one priority is having their Web sites up and
running. At Hostway, we're no different. Netcraft's acknowledgement of our
reliability reiterates our drive to provide our customers 99.99% uptime," said
John Lee, vice president of marketing for Hostway.
The award is based on the lowest number of failed requests and speed of
connection time. The purpose of using these two measurements is to give the
clearest indication of network capacity and congestions, with the least impact
from the performance of the companies' own web servers. Netcraft believes
customers place more importance on the percentage of failed requests than
outages on a hosting companies' site, as this gives an indication to the
Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading
hosting providers' sites. The performance measurements are made at
fifteen-minute intervals from eight separate points around the Internet, and
averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24-hour period.
Hostway has been consistently recognized as a leading Web hosting provider
by online hosting resources. TopHosts has ranked Hostway as the number one
hosting provider from 2000-2005. Web Host Directory has also rated Hostway the
number one ecommerce Hosting Provider for the last three years.
