Delivering benchmarked WordPress performance

We benchmarked our Free WordPress as a Service account (we used a test website https://wp8.readyhost.net.au) using the loader.io and the blazemeter.com. This is to cross-test and provide enough confidence that even the Free WordPress account will give you enough power for what the most websites need.

In our tests, we used a fresh installation of WordPress 4.7.4 with 20 dummy posts. All posts contain some amount of text and one or more images of various sizes. You may check it yourself by going to https://wp8.readyhost.net.au, as we left the content as is.

Frequently Asked Questions

What "Automated WordPress core updates" is?

Our systems automatically upgrade your WordPress to the latest WordPress core, as soon as new WordPress version is released. We also update WordPress plugins once a month.

Do you automatically update plugins and themes?

We do update WordPress plugins automatically, based on a monthly schedule. We do not update WordPress themes.

Can I SSH into my account to manage WordPress?

What Community support option means for Free WordPress account?

We do not provide priority support to free WordPress accounts via our support system. For support, you could search for a solution in our documentation website, or as a question in our community support forums.

What does ECU CPU means?

Each WordPress website runs in a container with server hardware resource allocation. We limit the CPU time, RAM, IOPS, files limit. The 1 ECU CPU represents 10% time of a single CPU core. Correspondingly, 20 ECU CPU allocation gives 200% CPU time or full access to 2 physical CPU cores.

How can I upgrade my WordPress plan?

All plans could be upgraded easily at any time. You could start with WordPress free and upgrade to a higher plan when the time suits.

Do you provide a free domain name for my new WordPress website?

No, we do not provide a free domain name for new WordPress installations, however, you could register a domain name as part of the checkout process.

Can I install custom WordPress plugins and themes?

We do not restrict you from installing custom themes and plugins, however, we recommend to stick to the best practices and avoid uncontrolled installing of every plugin available. Every account comes with hardware resources cap, so be wise when activating plugins or themes.

Can I have a multisite WordPress install?

No, our managed WordPress plans are single-site only. However, you could get a cPanel account and install a multisite WordPress using Softaculous script installer.

Will the FREE WordPress resources limit be enough for my website?

Popular hosting companies offer 25% CPU limit (2.5 ECU) and 512MB of RAM for Unlimited sites hosting plans. Our allocation of 1 ECU (10% CPU time) and 512MB or RAM is well enough to run a single (even busy) blog, company website, satellite website or a small eCommerce website.

In fact, we benchmarked our Free WordPress as a Service account (we used a test account https://wp8.readyhost.net.au) using the loader.io and the blazemeter.com. This is to give you enough confidence that even Free WordPress account will give you enough power for what you need.

Benchmarks of the free WordPress: test description

The theme used: Twenty Seventeen,

Plugins used

  • Nginx Helpers
  • W3TotalCache

All URLs were accessed over HTTPS with a free SSL certificate

Benchmarking results by loader.io

We tried multiple configurations to benchmark the limit of the free WordPress website. The Free WordPress was capable of reliably serving 5 visitors per second or 300 visitors per minute. This is the equivalent of about 20 - 30 real users browsing your website simultaneously.

Conclusion

The Free WordPress as a Service plan is very capable of handling small traffic spikes, which should be more than sufficient for the majority of personal or small business websites. In our tests, the 50 users constantly browsing the site by hitting 20 different URLs during 20 minutes outline that the free account is capable of serving a much higher traffic.
