Performance - Server Benchmarks

Server Performance is the basis for achieving fast page loading times. We have tested the server with the most powerful processors on Amazon Web Server, Google Compute Engine, Hetzner Cloud, Digital Ocean and VULTR.
To get the best server performance for your money, run the benchmark script to check and compare the result.

The Benchmark Script#

We are using the Yet-Another-Bench-Script to benchmark the server performance.

Blank Server

To benchmark the server performance, spin up a blank server with Ubuntu 22.04 or Debian 11 and execute the script below.

How to run#

  1. Login via SSH as root user or become root:
ssh root@instance-ip-address
  1. Execute the script with disabled network performance test:
curl -sL | bash -s -- -i
  1. Check and compare the Geekbench 5 Benchmark Test Result:
Select Storage Provider

The 10 Fastest Server Types#

Single Core Performance

The Single-Core Performance is important for Node.js and PHP Applications that can't take advantage of multiple processor cores.

Did you find a fast server that we should add to the list?

  1. Run the benchmark script above and make sure that the result is reproducible.

  2. Join our Discord Server and let us know which cloud/provider and server type you tested.

Real World Example#

In the following Real World Example, you see how fast CloudPanel runs on a High-Performance Server.
If CloudPanel (Lightweight PHP Application) isn't running fast, then don't expect High-Performance for other applications.

  1. To check the CloudPanel performance, use the Google Chrome Browser, log into CloudPanel and click on Sites.

  2. Make a right-click and click on Inspect to open the Chrome Developer Toolbar.

Inspect Site
  1. Go to Network and click on Doc and reload 3-4 times to get the best result.
    In our example below, you see 41ms rendering time, which is very fast. If you see a value >= 150ms, you may think about switching to a faster server.
