Re: How to evaluate server speed?
Thanks for all the comments!
I’m using WestHost. I am (naively, I know) trying to keep my site out of the search engines for another week or so, so please don’t link to it:
http:// muellerfever dot com
(I’m not using robots.txt because I don’t know how long crawlers cache the “do not harvest” status and I do want to announce the site soon.)
WestHost seems not to have top, w or uptime where I can get at them. I don’t know anything about the size of their pipes.
I chose WestHost because they came highly recommended and support Rails, which I may use for another project. I also have a HostingMatters account if I have reason to believe that would be faster.
