HYPE Doesn’t Speed Up Your Site

Most Hosting Companies use HYPE to sell their hosting.

HYPE Doesn’t Speed Up Your Site!

Looking at our recent GTMetrix.com tests, those host who do the greatest advertising using terms like “fastest hosting on the planet” or the “most scaleable hosting on the planet” but all this hype does not add speed to your page download.

Look at the actual download times and then compare it to their ads.

Our advertising is “word of mouth”; our hype is mere facts. We are fastest of them all. Frankly,Hosting-Master.com is not interested in ‘advertising’ but rather hosting your WordPress site giving you the best hosting available.
Sites on our server are fast:
Hosting-Master.com 1.1 seconds
CentralOregonforLife.org 1.6 seconds
AwsCreativeSolutions.com .4 seconds
WP-SiteMakers.com .5 seconds
c3yadkin.com 1.1 seconds
Communicaidinc.com 2.4 seconds (older PHP site not WordPress)
TheDiamondBroker.net 2.3 major WordPress site
FindPregnancyHelp.com 1.2 seconds

Claims to provide hosting for WordPress on “fast” servers. But the only mention of SSD is when they talk about their SSD storage.

This is a smaller host using older technology and when they talk about WordPress hosting is all shared.

Promotes themselves as “fanatic support” but all hosting is shared unless you want to pay for a dedicated.
