Ethernet Servers Performance

We regularly test Ethernet Servers using HetrixTools to monitor both the uptime and load times of our website. For our most recent results we tested Ethernet Servers for a year between November 2018 and October 2019. The performance of our website hosted in the US was monitored from three locations: New York, Dallas and San Francisco.

The monthly uptime of our website with Ethernet Servers is normally well above 99.9%. However, due to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, the uptime sometimes dropped below 99.9% (for example, in May & March 2019). The load times are nonetheless quite impressive, normally under 500 ms.

Below is a summary of the uptime and average load times for 2019. You can see also the actual test results and the test site setup in detail for yourself.

Open Source

Ethernet Servers is perfect for less experienced users of such open-source applications as WordPress. Besides one-click installs and free migrations, Ethernet Servers can help with numerous cPanel-based issues such as setting up an SSL certificate. When you build a WordPress website, Ethernet Servers automatically installs the LSCache plugin.

Transparency

Whether you are looking for web hosting for personal or business projects, you need a host that you can rely on. This is why we always examine the transparency of the company and its practices.

Company

Ethernet Servers is very open about its operations and even provides its registration number. Based in the UK, the company was founded in 2013. It is privately owned. The company is very small, although it is not clear how many people are actually involved.

Ethernet Servers offers web hosting in 7 data centers: US, UK, Singapore, Australia, Canada, France and Germany.

The company also offers managed VPS with locations in New Jersey and Los Angeles.

Pricing

The pricing is also very transparent. The plans renew at the same price. A longer billing cycle offers nice savings. Payment methods include credit card, PayPal, Bitcoin and AliPay.

Ethernet Servers Review in a Nutshell

4.7/5

What we admire about Ethernet Servers significantly outweighs whatever concerns we may have. 

Our only concern is really that Ethernet Servers is a fairly young and small hosting company. The support has, however, been outstanding and fast.

What we love about Ethernet Servers is low prices, 60-day refunds, generous resource limits, friendly support, free daily backups and a choice of 7 data center locations.
