ChemiCloud Shared Hosting Speed Test

Hello Guys, Welcome to Hosting Lovers!

If you are planning to buy ChemiCloud shared hosting, and you want to know the performance of ChemiCloud shared hosting, then you are in the right place. In this blog post, We will test the speed and performance of ChemiCloud shared hosting with 10+ different and extensive tests.

Let’s Get Started!

ChemiCloud Hosting

ChemiCloud was founded in 2016. Currently, 50k+ websites are hosted in ChemiCloud. ChemiCloud is 100% independent, and with the 7 worldwide datacenters ChemiCloud is one of the most rated shared hosting.

ChemiCloud offers Shared hosting, WordPress hosting (same as Shared hosting), Reseller hosting and Cloud VPS hosting. In this particular blog post, we will talk about ChemiCloud shared hosting.

Plans & Pricing

ChemiCloud Shared Hosting Speed & Performance Test Plans and Pricing

ChemiCloud offers 3 various plans in shared hosting. Starter, Pro and Turbo. I recommend Pro plan if you want to buy ChemiCloud shared hosting. With the starter plan, you can host only one website, so Starter plan is not good choice. If you your website get high traffic then you can go with Turbo plan.

Testing Environment

To test ChemiCloud shared hosting speed and performance, I bought a Pro plan. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will already know that I create the same testing website when I perform speed tests. After buying the plan, I installed WordPress and connected it with my domain which I bought from NameCheap.

I do not want to run tests on a blank website, so I installed Blocksy Theme and one of its demo websites called ‘Tasty.’ I have to install four additional extra plugins with the demo website: Blocksy Companion, WP Forms Lite, Stackable, Recipe Card Blocks by WPZOOM.

Hosting: ChemiCloud Shared
Plan: Pro
Server Location: Dallas
WordPress Version: 5.8
Themes: Blocksy (Active), Twenty twenty One
Plugins: Blocksy Companion, WP Forms Lite, Stackable, Recipe Card Blocks by WPZOOM

After setting this testing environment, I did not perform any extra optimizations like caching, Image compressing, modification, or any other kind of speed improvement. It would be best if you always did these optimizations to improve your website, but I wanted to know the actual performance of ChemiCloud shared hosting without any optimizations.

Quick Disclaimer:
I want to inform you guys that all the results are honest and authentic in this blog post. To do these kinds of tests, I have to spend a lot of money from my pocket, So I would like to request that if you want to buy ChemiCloud shared Hosting or any other hosting, please use our affiliate links. You will get an extra discount, and this website will earn a small amount of commission from it. So, we can do more feature speed tests, reviews, and comparisons without any sponsors.

Now, without wasting your precious time, let’s start testing.

TTFB Test

TTFB stands for time to first byte. To put it simply, this is a measurement of how long the browser has to wait before receiving its first byte of data from the server. The longer it takes to get that data, the longer it takes to display your page.

TTFB depends on the Hosting server, Themes, and plugins. But most of the part is played by the hosting server. If hosting using a high-performance server, you will get low TTFB, and if hosting uses a standard specifications server, it will be high.

Most of the hostings stores your website files in a single location. From that server, the hosting will send all the files to the visitors. If your hosting server is located in the USA, your website will get very low TTFB in the USA, Canada, and European countries. But it will be much higher in Asia and Australia.

Therefore when you buy hosting from any of the providers, try to choose the nearest server location from your website’s audience. (not closest to you but closest to your website users)

When visitors come to your website, the browser will send all the requests and ask for the required files to the hosting server. After that, hosting will send an initial reply to the browser. Now, the time between browser requests and hosting initial response will be called TTFB.

Your website will load fast if your hosting TTFB is low. Means, as low is the TTFB of your website, visitor have to wait for less. By this, the bounce rate of your website can decrease drastically.

TTFB can be different from location to location and time to time. Therefore, we will do multiple tests from multiple worldwide locations. So, we can get the best accurate value. In the TTFB test, we will use three different tools and will take five different results.

KeyCDN TTFB Test

TTFB test one is done from KeyCDN Tools. This tool will measure the TTFB from 10 different worldwide locations. I have taken three different results of this test from different other days.

GT Metrix TTFB Test

TTFB test two is done from GTMetrix. I have done seven different tests to measure the TTFB from seven different locations.

Fast or Slow TTFB Test

TTFB test three is done from Fast or Slow. Fast or Slow will measure the website TTFB and Speed from 18 worldwide locations. This is the heaviest test from all of the tests.

Here is the end of the TTFB tests, now we will start the Speed Test.

Speed Test

We will measure the website’s fully loaded time and some core web vitals in the Speed test. The website’s fully loaded time and core web vitals can depend on Hosting servers, Themes, Plugins, and testing page content. But, as I told you before, We used the same testing environment to avoid the Theme, Plugins, and testing page content.

Google PageSpeed

If you want to rank higher in Google search, you should strictly follow the Google Core web vitals. You can measure these parameters from the Google PageSpeed Insights tool, which is the official testing tool of Google.

Therefore, we will do our first speed test in Google PageSpeed Insights. Speed Index and Time to Interactive are parameters we should follow. Google PageSpeed Insights results are not consistent. Therefore, I will conduct three different tests on separate days to get the most accurate results.

Pingdom Test

The second speed test is done with Pingdom from seven different worldwide locations. Load time is the factor that we will consider in this test.

GTMetrix Test

The third speed test is done with the GTMetrix tool from seven different worldwide locations. GTMetrix is based on Google PageSpeed Insights. You should look up to Fully Loaded time. I have taken seven different tests from all of the seven locations of GTMetrix. At last, you will see the global average results.

KeyCDN Speed Test

The fourth speed test is done with KeyCDN Tools. There are ten different worldwide locations in the KeyCDN Testing tool. We can measure the website load time, page size, requests, and performance grade with this tool. Page size, requests, and performance grade will be quite the same in all of the tests.

Fast or Slow Speed Test

Test 5 is done with Fast or Slow from 18 different worldwide locations. In these results, we measure website interactive time. The Time to Interactive (TTI) metric measures how long it takes a page to become interactive to the site visitor.

Uptime

Good Uptime is one of the most required features in any hosting. If your website stays down most of the time, then it is so obvious that your website will lose all of the readers of all of the customers. Most of the hostings claim 99.9% uptime. That means the chances are your website will be down for 43m 49s in a month. Which is average in all of the hostings.

The reason for downtime can be server maintenance, server technical issues, server upgrading process or it could be any technical issues or also any natural issues like electricity, fire, or anything else. So, we can assume some minor level of downtime in most of the hostings. But, sometimes some of the hostings load too many websites on a single server, or technical issues can cause extra downtime to the website.

ChemiCloud offers 99.99% up-time Guarantee. I haven’t seen any shared hosting providers are giving 99.99% up-time guarantee. But chemiCloud not like others. If ChemiCloud can’t provide 99.99% uptime then ChemiCloud will offer you one month extra hosting free. That’s awesome. Additionally ChemiCloud will compensate with month of free hosting for every 1% of uptime lost below 99.00%.

Load Test

In the Load test, we will send some visitors to the testing website, and after the test, we can see the load handling performance of the hosting. To do the load test, I conducted two different tests. In the first test, I sent 100 virtual users to the website. In the second test, I send 250 virtual users to the testing website.
