TMD Hosting Speed Performance
Speed is one of the most important metrics that you should always consider while choosing the hosting for your website in the first place. A faster website boosts your business and increases the number of visitors by improving off page SEO of your website.
In fact, a study found that a single delay can cause a 7% decrease in conversion, a 13% fewer page view, and an 18% higher bounce rate.
To check the actual speed I created a WordPress website with TMD hosting and installed an SEO friendly theme Astra and published a dummy content.
After that, I run a Pingdom speed test and got this result.
You can see, our testing site loads in only 851 seconds. This is amazing and we should clearly understand that TMD server is fast.
I have not stopped myself here and tested our dummy site with traffic, generated by a tool called Loadimpact. This tool gradually increases traffic by up to 100 users to perform a test for your site.
In the graph, the blue line shows the virtual traffic and green line is correspondence server load time. From the test result, I can easily say that if you are looking for a reliable server then you can consider TMD Hosting for your website.
