Choosing Webhosting provider is crucial for your website performance, security & support. If you are starting an online business, blog then one of the first things you would like to do is establish online presence by setting up your website.

There are hundreds of VPS/Shared hosting providers across the globe and it’s very essential to choose the one, which is closest to your intended visitors for lower latency or in other word fast loading webpage.

I can understand its time consuming to search for hosting datacenter locations of each shortlisted hosting provider.

Are you still wondering why do you need speedtest hostname?

Short answer is to ping and see which one is responding faster from your location. There are two ways you can perform ping.

  • Ping locally: use Command prompt from your Windows or Terminal from MAC to issue ping command.
  • Ping online: you can use following tools to ping the hostname from multiple locations.
  1. Map Latency
  2. Site 24X7
  3. LOCA PING
  4. Just Ping

Here are list of speedtest hostname from many hosting providers. All at one place!
