hey there this is ad Herzog and in this video what I want to do is I want to show you the results of some speed tests that I've done on my website with fast comet as my web host as I've mentioned in other videos that I've done in the past comet I switch to them in April of 2019 and I'm absolute 100% satisfied with them they've got great uptime they've got great customer service including live chat and they've got great speed and those in my opinion are the critical factors that you'd look for when you're choosing a web host of course what other factors you can look into and of course you have to balance those critical factors with price you know obviously you have to pay you have to choose a provider that you can afford you know my recommendation is always go with the best web hosting that you can afford for me fast comet fit in my price range and again I'm absolutely 100% satisfied with them as I'm going to show you I've been able to achieve speed loading times of one second or sometimes less which i think is something that most people be very very happy with so I'm gonna switch my screen and a second to show you some of these results but I also want to kind of lay a little back on here um you know if you look on the website you know look for views of not just fast comet but other hosting services what you'll often see you know they'll they'll do this kind of testing of the speed of web host whether it's fast comet or site ground or Bluehost and what I see in those results you know I don't think they're very there have a lot about you for a couple of reasons first of all they're not really using real web sites they've got kind of these very bland basic web sites maybe like a header and then a little bit of text they don't as far as I know put in any sort of caching on them so it's not really a real-world experience right you're not getting you know you're not seeing what is possible with your own website if you actually go through some optimization so the results you're seeing there you know in my opinion aren't really all that helpful the other thing I've noticed with these tests and I've looked at them you know for a couple different people that do these is that there's not a lot of consistency among the results so it makes me wonder they're doing I mean I can show you I could show you one website and again it doesn't matter it could be fast Commodore site grout or Bluehost or anybody else show you one site and they'll have a list of numbers you know they often show numbers for a couple years like every month for a couple years what kind of website speed load time they're getting and then I'll show you those same numbers those same months for somebody else's doing the testing for that same host and those numbers will be very different and so I it's like what is going on here what exactly are they doing with these tests I don't know and again it's not really it's not a real-world test it's not a test of an actual website it's like this blank a practically blank website so it doesn't really and my those sort of things don't really help you in my opinion because you know what matters is how quickly kind of website load you know in the real world we've actually doing best practices and you know you've got actual things like a long website with photos and buttons and texts and all these icons etc you know what does that look like and again as I just mentioned I've gotten one second or less using fast comment as my host now again I don't want to say that it's all that fast comment because there is a lot that goes into this and I want to do I'm gonna do a separate video where I talk about how I got to get you know to one second or less could it you know there are other things go into this but you know your hosting is kind of the base there if you don't have good hosting you're not gonna be able to achieve something like what I've been able to achieve you've got to start with good hosting and again I'm unsatisfied that you know based on my experience the fast comment is a high quality hosting service so I guess what server my screen before I do that remember subscribe to my channel and make sure to hit the notification button now will you get notifications whenever I release a new video whether it's on fast Commodore Elementor I've got some coming up on optinmonster perhaps I might actually be doing some on thrive themes I got a lot of different tools I'm going to be talking about in the you know we're almost at the end of 2019 so I guess in 2019 into 2020 so do that secondly you know if you liked this video please give it a thumbs up that does help I think it does you know help tell people is video worth watching and then you know YouTube will show it to other people so so let me go ahead and switch my screen here okay actually first I just want to show you again I'm just gonna reinforce the up time here on fast comet again this is one of these people who does you know some testing on it and they're showing a 99.9 3 percent uptime which i think is you know excellent they've got they're showing six hours of outage I actually sat down with a calculator and that is over it so that's six hours were over four years or 8760 hours and a year and so if you divide that through that's how you get this 99.9 three percent so you know that's really good they were down four total six hours over a full year so you know they do again have very good uptime so let me show you this is my website because I want you to see the website that I'm gonna show you the scores for so again this is a fully developed website you know it's got a variety of pictures as a picture there one there's a picture of me too these photos that come from my blog post there's six more there's more photos there so it's got a lot of stuff right I mean it's not kind of a short small page it's a fully developed home page with footer or header copyright texts lots of lots of stuff in between so take a look here this is what I got yesterday now again when you use something like g2 metrics you know you're not always going to get the exact same result it does vary a little bit but here I am this was I don't know if you can see this but it says right here Wednesday December 4th and I'm recording this on Thursday December 5th this is at 3:07 p.m. and you know 0.88 seconds now I am running a light web page right I mean despite the fact this is pretty long has a lot going on it's a light web page so again that's why I want to show you in another video how exactly accomplished you know this 0.8 seconds it's light web page not a lot of requests you know 100% on page speed 98% on yslow so but you know again this the hosting is kind of your base if you don't have a good base you're not going to be able to get this 0.8 seconds which I think most people would be happy with I mean maybe with a different host you could get there point-7 I don't know but you know does that really matter you know once you get down under a second you're pretty pretty much good to go right so that I'm happy with I'm ecstatic with 0.8 seconds now here I'll just show you oops this is not what I wanted to show you is it over here I here we go so we've got here you know this was from this I did two hours ago I got one second so you know again it varies a little bit but you know one second 0.8 seconds not really much of a difference I decided to check out by contact me page just out of curiosity that got 0.9 seconds that was 13 hours ago this here is my wife's website which is also hosted on fast comment and you know this is interesting now I did this so a week ago and I got one second now I've done very little optimize my wife's website I mean if you actually look at my webs wife's website she's a Spanish teacher the copyright still says 2018 and here we're all almost in 2020 she could still have word of mouth referrals so we don't you know really promote her webpage a whole lot so I'm not really all that concerned about site speed with her website you know sometimes you know we have our prices on there but otherwise you know it's not something I've really been concerned about so I haven't done a lot for it I haven't done a lot to try to optimize it so even without any sort of optimization on it you know very little I got one second now here here you're seeing my page from again a week ago seven days ago and now this was a little slower because I hadn't you know finished some of the optimization stuff but the other thing you see here you see the Canadian flag now my with fast comment my server is located in Dallas and so you know obviously it's going to be slower when it's further away so that was another factor that you know why it's a little slower was but again two seconds I think most people be very happy with if I had tested it closer to Dallas it would have been a lot faster um and you know as I said I've done some additional optimization since then which is how I've gotten this lower score so again I'm showing you here that you know you can she very fast load times using fast comment as your web host you know I can't guarantee that you can get exactly what I've got because every website is different but again this hosting is kind of a base if you don't have that as your base you're not you have no possibility of achieving a load time or space speed load time like this I want to try to show you I'm gonna do an experiment here somebody pull up in my face but I want to show you what this might look in real time now so I'm on an incognito page and now I live in Bogota Colombia so I'm again I got some distance from my web server so this may not be quite as fast this may be a little slower but we'll just take a look and see how quickly this loads boom done not bad right that was pretty fast and now that it's cash oops I got a pop-up there now it's cached it's gonna be even faster done pretty impressive right done so that shows you again fast comment lives up to his name in my opinion right it is fast so this is a web host if you're looking for a hosting service this is one that I really would recommend that you take a strong look at you know it's not again the speed is one factor again they've got great uptime they've got great customer service live chat or a ticket system if you're prefer that way and there are some other nice bonuses as they throw it you know they'll migrate your websites for free you know you know actually the other thing I want to mention which I forgot to mention what you're seeing here there's no CDN I'm not even the I'm not even on the free cloud floor right now fast comment does offer that but this is not using a CDN I don't even have a fast the free cloud player so this is all fast comet so that's important to mention I've got no CDN whatsoever and so so you know they do but if you do want to use cloud flare you know they've got the free cloud player you know they've got other again you'll you need to take a look at the different prices so I've got my full review of fast comet rush different prices and plans but you know I've been absolutely 100% happy with them I signed a three-year contract so I've got you know at least another two and a half years with them and so so that's it that's what I've got to say about this you know I hope that this speed test here that I've showed you again using a real-world example you know helps you in terms of making decision a fast comment is a webhost that you're thinking of going with so let me switch my camera again so that's it if you've got questions or comments about fast comment about this video please let me know I'm always welcome always happy to help people with any questions might have again make sure to subscribe to my channel hit the notification button I've got a lot more videos coming out again I'm not sure if I have got more on fast comet but because there is a limit to what you can do regarding hosting videos but I do have more videos coming out on other tools and you know again thumbs up would be great if you can do that that again helps me in terms of knowing first of all it's a quality video that's something you've found value in and I think it then helps that other people see the video as well so that's it have a great day and I'll see you in the next video bye .
