A2 Hosting’s Servers Load Pages Up To 3-Times Faster Than Competition
Ann Arbor, MI – August 9, 2013 – High speed hosting provider A2 Hosting is out to prove their solutions provide superior website performance for their customers. In January of this year, A2 Hosting launched a solid state drive option for their Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, VPS Hosting and Managed VPS solutions as well as their Dedicated Servers a few months later. Their performance tests show sites using their SSD Hosting experience 300% faster page loads than standard hosting.
A2 Hosting has taken their speed testing a step further by publishing competitor speed test results . They tested website page load speeds for sites hosted on their SwiftServer platform head-to-head against a number of their web hosting competitors. The results show that A2 Hosting’s SwiftServers load pages up to 2-3 times faster compared to their competitors. Included in the speed test results is full disclosure of their testing methodology. A2 Hosting also plans to test against more competitors and publish the results in the coming weeks.
The speed results are telling, especially considering how severely a 1-second page load speed can negatively impact a website. Tests show a mere 1-second delay in page load speed can cause a 7% decrease in conversion rate, 16% decrease in visitor satisfaction and a 11% reduction in page views. This doesn’t factor in how website speed can impact organic rankings. The bottom line is page speed is a huge factor in determining a website’s success. The decision where to host a website can not be taken lightly.
“While many of our competitors use ads to do their talking, we’ll let our speed tests do the talking for us.,” commented A2 Hosting’s Marketing Manager Brad Litwin. “Some hosts tell you how fast they are. We decided to show how fast we are. There’s really no reason for someone to have to deal with a slow host when we offer high-performance hosting solutions at such reasonable prices. We are perpetually testing and making server tweaks to our SwiftServer platform to provide the best performance for our customers.”
A2 Hosting has also been partnered with web performance company CloudFlare and offers their site speed enhancing tools for free. A2 Hosting customers can use CloudFlare’s CDN, which on average load pages 200% faster, as well as the Railgun Optimizer for up to 143% faster HTML load times.
