The speed graph on this page compares average loading times for a webpage on DreamHost and A2 Hosting. We gathered these results from diagnostics we collected before and after a website was moved from DreamHost to A2 Hosting. At A2 Hosting, we do not gauge whether websites moving from DreamHost had any specialized packages concerning speed. It also does not take into account whether the website is using a specialized speed package from A2 Hosting (for example, our “Turbo” package). It is simply a before and after test to find the average load time for a website hosted with A2 Hosting and DreamHost.
