Hi, any suggestions on how to measure the loading speeds with different hosts as accurately as possible? Since there are no speed comparisons on the hosts I'm interested in, I'm planning to do it myself, by how should I do that in your opinion? I'm thinking of uploading the same exact sites to each host and then measuring the loading speeds with Pingdom and Dotcom Tools. Would that be a good way to do this? :crazy:

I'm thinking about shared hosting and would appreciate thoughts on doing most accurate speed comparisons myself between some shared hosts.

It's pretty hard to compare shared hosting, because there are no way to make some benchmark like with a VPS. So you can't only compare them on their server performance.
Try to see what control panel they use, and what is the version of the control panel to not buy a shared hosting plan running on an outdated configuration, and check if all latest components are available (php7, apache/litespeed/nginx, free ssl certificates etc ..)

This is okay, but you need to take note of routing issues ( such as a server from EU will load slower in the US and vice versa )
