Speed Test: A2 Hosting vs HostGator

For our most recent batch of competitor testing, we put HostGator through a round of testing against our SSD servers, and the results were pretty staggering. Again using PrestaShop as our target platform to test with, HostGator had an average initial page load speed of 9.2 seconds, compared to our initial page load of 1.9 seconds.

For followup (cached) requests, HostGator averaged 3.9 seconds, as compared to our .94 seconds.
