2021 WordPress Results

<$25/Month Summary

Raidboxes is a second time participant and earned Top Tier marks this year. Their uptime was above 99.99%. Their Load Tests both had nearly no errors and went very smoothly. It wasn't the flashiest with 4th fastest WPT average response time being it's best result, but it did very well in all the tests. A solid Top Tier performance.

$201-500/Month Summary

RAIDBOXES earned an Honorable Mention. The uptime was above 99.99%. They had an excellent K6 result. The only thing which held them back this year was the Load Storm wp-login response time on average being over 1000ms by 12ms. This was probably the closest performance between Top Tier and Honorable Mention status of any this year.

Enterprise ($500+/Month) Summary

RAIDBOXES stepped up to the Enterprise tier this year and showed they could hang with the biggest players and earned Top Tier marks. RAIDBOXES had 99.99+% uptime and the fastest response times in London and Frankfurt on the WPT test. Nice to see them doing well in their home turf. The rest of their results didn't stand out, but they were all solid. Nice to see they can scale and earn Top Tier marks.

LoadStorm

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

K6

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

WebPageTest

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

Uptime

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

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.

<$25/Month Summary

It's always nice to see a first time entrant just do flawlessly. With a whopping 0 total errors on their load tests and 99.999% and 100% on their uptime monitors, it's hard to ask for a better performance. Welcome to the show Raidboxes and congratulations on earning your first Top Tier honor, may you earn many more in the years to come.

$201-500/Month Summary

One of the standout new entrants this year earned Top Tier status right off the bat. 99.999% uptime and up. Zero errors on both load tests. Hard to ask for a better performance, but they also had the fastest PHP bench score of a company not named Servebolt across any price tier. Well done Raidboxes and congrats on the Top Tier marks.
