Royal Pingdom which is a site that specializes in covering the internet, technology, or anything uptime related has released their report on who the most reliable and unreliable blog hosting services are. The report was based on a period of four months between November 10th 2008 to March 10th 2009, so keep that in mind when reviewing the numbers. The services monitored were as follows:
- Windows Live Spaces
Here are the results:
As expected, WordPress.com, TypePad and Blogger were the three dominant hosting services although TypePad beat out the other two by six minutes more uptime. Considering the size and scope of both WordPress.com and TypePad with Blogger having Google powering its service, it’s no wonder these top three providers are able to stand above the crowd. However, Microsoft is a big behemoth in and of itself yet their Windows Live Spaces had 4 hours and 10 minutes of downtime.
So what do you make of these results?
