Weekly Monitoring Contest: Top Web Hosting Sites

The Dotcom-Monitor team is launching a new initiative to monitor uptime and performance of the most recognized industry leaders.

  • Every week we are going to monitor the 10 most influential companies in their industry.
  • Every Monday we will announce the list of top-10 companies.
  • Every Friday we will publish site availability and web performance statistics of these companies. These statistics will compare the company’s performance, uptime and network statistics.

How do we select our participants? Oh, that’s easy… we ask Google. The companies on page 1 of Google search results for a given industry or topic are then run through our analysis.

This week we are starting by monitoring the top web hosting sites. Our contestants are:

  • https://www.fatcow.com/

  • https://www.bluehost.com/
