We’re Hosting This Test Site On SiteGround’s London Datacenter

Hi there!

If you’ve come across this site by accident, feel free to look around, click on our links and just spend some time over here. We promise you that everything is safe to touch.

Basically, this site exists purely just for us to monitor the uptime and server speed of SiteGround’s European datacenter, specifically, the one located in London.

At Bitcatcha, we don’t just produce numbers and claims out of thin air. When we recommend a product, we’ve gotta be damn sure that the product we’re recommending will give our readers exceptional value.

This is why we spend so much testing and researching web hosting options. We do in-depth comprehensive research and reviews, just so that our readers (i.e. you) can make an informed decision regarding their web hosting options so that you don’t suffer from buyer’s remorse.

Basically, we do all the work, make all the mistakes, learn all the lessons, just so that you don’t have to.

On this site, you can expect to see the uptime tracking results, server speed tests, and maybe a few other experiments that we might have come up with. If you wanna read more, check out our detailed review here.

We monitor this test site’s uptime with a free tool called uptimerobot. While it’ll be nice to get 100% uptime, we do realize that it’s not realistic, and since SiteGround has a 99.99% uptime guarantee, we’ll be happy to achieve that.

If you’re familiar at all with Bitcatcha.com, you’ll know that we’re completely head over heels with speed. We firmly believe that speed makes the world go round (or in this case, makes your sales go up) and this is why we place so much importance of a good, speedy web hosting service.

Our server speed checker tests web hosts for response times in 10 different locations around the world, so you can see how fast your web hosting responds to readers from different locations.

The average out the data from the nodes to come up with a global average for your web host. Ideally, you’ll want your web hosting to get at least 180ms which ranks them as a+. 181ms to 210ms will get your server an a ranking which is still quite good.

As a matter of fact, even a b+ or a b ranking is still acceptable but if your server starts getting a c+ ranking, you should be looking for a faster web host. For more information on how our server speed checker works, click here.
