Website performance is key these days, and server response times are crucial when working to optimize the performance of your website. To help you with this comes Bitcatcha – a free online tool which checks your server response times from 8 different locations around the world. The results are then compared against Alexa’s top 10,000 global websites – and you’re given back a report showing how your website stacks up against the best of the best.
“Bitcatcha is proud to offer an already powerful and essential tool that enables people to examine and improve their server speed,” explained a company spokesperson in a press release. “Now more than ever, this tool is invaluable. The competition is fierce and the tolerance for slow load times is getting smaller and smaller – Amazon would lose $1.6 billion dollars a year if their site slowed down by a second. Comparison rankings using the Alexa Top 10,000 will enable businesses to understand their results more easily, and take appropriate action as a result.“
Currently Bitcatcha tests your server from the following locations:
- US (west)
- US (east)
- Sao Palo
- Pune (India)
