Web Hosting NewsSurrey, UK – Memset, the award-winning dedicated IT hosting provider has been placed in the Top 10 most reliable hosting providers worldwide, a list void of other UK hosts, according to an independent survey by Internet analysts, Netcraft.

Netcraft, which began analysing Internet technology in 1995, publishes an independent, unbiased monthly survey of web hosting companies. It is the oldest and most respected web survey in the industry. In December 2008, Memset was placed in the top 10 for reliability placing it ahead of industry giants as Rackspace, WebFusion and others.

To compile the list, Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading hosting providers’ sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen-minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.

From a customer’s point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on hosting companies’ own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing.

Kate Craig-Wood, MD of Memset comments, “The Memset website is running on a Miniserver Virtual Machine which proves that not only is our technology lightning fast, but a virtual dedicated server system is a reliable alternative to less efficient and more expensive dedicated hardware. Additionally, this shows that you do not need to be hosted in London for super-fast response times – our data centre is in Reading.”

Craig-Wood adds that it is especially pleasing to come out ahead of much larger competitors in Netcraft’s survey, because it shows that the size of a hosting company has no bearing on whether it can provide customers with the most reliable service.
