Tutorial How to test the speed of your hosting as visitors increase (for free)


NHT Manager
This will be a simple tutorial on how to test the speed of your hosting provider as the number of visitors to your website increases. This is great for hosting services to demonstrate that their service can perform well under stress, and it's also great for website owners who are curious about how well their website can perform under stress.

Step 1: Go to


Step 2: There will be a box with a button next to it that says "Run Free Test." Enter your website URL into the box and click Run Free Test.

Step 3: It will prompt you to sign up; if you want to, you can, but it's unnecessary. If you don't want an account, click no and start testing.

Step 4: Load Impact will now send visitors to your site and will make a graph of how well your website performs as visitors increase. If your user load time stays the same as visitors increase, that's a good sign that your hosting is stable and can perform well even under lots of traffic. However, if your user load time increases as visitors increase, it's a sign that you should probably switch services sometime soon (assuming your site receives traffic).

Example of a good host:


Example of a bad host:

Notice that the excellent host remains consistent and fast, and the lousy host is inconsistent as load times spike when visitors increase.

I hope you guys liked this tutorial.
