$101-200/Month Summary

Leverage WP was a new comer to the benchmarks this year and another GridPane powered provider. The Load Storm test took a few minutes to really get going with a little shakiness at the start. But the p95 was below 1000ms and came down relatively quickly as the test scaled up. It even managed the third fastest login speed. The Static test shows Leverage WP as the slowest, but even the slowest average handled the test well and was a meager 151ms. The Uptime monitors showed 100% and 99.9995% uptime which is excellent. It's a non impacting metric, but the SSL grade for Leverage WP was a B which I would like to see match everyone else with at least an A next year. Leverage WP may not have been the flashiest or fastest host in this cohort, but handled the tests well without ever slowing down or breaking. Leverage WP's first participation could only be considered a success and deserving of a Top Tier award.


Load Storm is designed to simulate real users visiting the site, logging in and browsing. It tests uncached performance.


K6 is designed to test cached performance by repeatedly requesting the homepage.


WebPageTest fully loads the homepage and records how long it takes from 12 different locations around the world.


Uptime is monitored by two companies: HetrixTools and Uptime Robot. A self hosted monitor was also run in case there was a major discrepancy between the two third party monitors.


WPPerformanceTester performs two benchmarks. One is a WordPress (WP Bench) and the other a PHP benchmark. WP Bench measures how many WP queries per second and higher tends to be better (varies considerably by architecture). PHP Bench performs a lot of computational and some database operations which are measured in seconds to complete. Lower PHP Bench is better. WP Bench is red in the chart, PHP Bench is blue.
