There are many FREE speed test tools online, the one I’ve used lately is GTMetrix.net. Here are the steps I use to measure the performance of the webhost.
To get the IP address of your host.
- Go to https://docs.nexcess.net/article/how-to-find-the-ip-address-of-a-website-or-server.html
- Then once you have the IP address, login to GTMetrix.com and test the IP address of your host. Sometimes, you need to first enter the IP address into your browser address bar, and then test the resulting URL to get the speed of your host. Example: My IP address is http://18.104.22.168/ but to test I need to use http://22.214.171.124/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi as that’s the destination of the IP address, the address that it resolves to in my browser.
- Then once I’ve got an idea of how fast the sever can deliver content, I make sure that my content is a well-crafted package that will take advantage of the good speed that my host provides.
