By Terry Kyle
Chief Dog Lover/Co-Founder WPX.net (With Georgi Petrov, CEO)
Arguably The World’s Fastest WP Host
ReviewSignal.com is an independent hosting review site run by a dude called Kevin Ohashi.
Each year, Kevin runs a batch of tests – raw speed, uptime and load handling – on most of the major players in WordPress Hosting.
Instead of declaring one single winner, Kevin awards the very best performers a rank called “Top Tier” status.
WPX entered last year (2019) and achieved Top Tier status in all three entered categories:
[a] under $25 monthly
[b] $25-$50 monthly and
Kevin featured the same three categories this year (2020), results published on June 1 2020…
Under $25 Monthly Top Tier Winners:
Kevin’s summary on WPX’s performance in this category:
"WPX Hosting earned another Top Tier award this year. There's not much to say, 99.999% uptime and almost perfect load tests will do that. Congrats on the repeat, keep up the excellent work."
$25-$50 Monthly Top Tier Winners:
Kevin’s summary on WPX’s performance in the $25-$50 category:
"WPX Hosting had 100/99.99% uptime marks. Their average response times on both load tests was in the snappy 100ms range. WPX earned themselves Top Tier honors again this year"
$51-$100 Monthly Top Tier Winners:
Kevin’s summary on WPX’s performance in the $51-$100 category:
"WPX had near perfect uptime and did excellent on both load tests. It wasn't flashy but they were the third fastest average response on Load Storm and second fastest on Load Impact. A consistently great performance which got them another Top Tier award this year"

Speed is one thing but what about support QUALITY?
