Netcraft Continues to Rank Hostway the Most Reliable Hosting Company Site
For the Third Month This Year, Hostway Receives Award Recognizing Its High
Uptime and Fast Connection Time
CHICAGO, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Hostway Corporation, a leading provider of Web hosting and managed services, has been chosen by Netcraft as the most reliable hosting company site this month. This marks the third time this year that it has been on top of the performance rankings, having shared the top spot in May and September. This month was the first time since March that a single host stood alone as most reliable. 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 routing reliability. 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 rated Hostway the number one ecommerce Hosting Provider for the last three years and Host Index has crowned Hostway the Top Web Host in 1999-2002, 2004 and 2005.
