InterServer Shared Hosting Speed Test

Hello Guys, Welcome to Hosting Lovers!

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

Let’s Get Started!

InterServer Shared Hosting

InterServer is providing shared hosting from 1999. InterServer offers only one plan in the shared hosting, which is called Standard Web Hosting. In this plan, you can host unlimited websites and you will get Unlimited ULTRA SSD Storage, Unlimited E-Mail Accounts, Free SSL Certificates and many more features.

Testing Environment

To test InterServer shared hosting speed and performance, I bought the Standard shared hosting plan of InterServer. 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: InterServer Shared Hosting
Plan: Standard Web Hosting
Server Location: USA
WordPress Version: Latest
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 InterServer 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. Also, this blog post is not sponsored by InterServer hosting or any other hosting.

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 InterServer 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.

KeyCDN Test

The first test we will do is the KeyCDN Test. With the KeyCDN test, we can measure website total load time and TTFB from 10+ worldwide locations.
