How fast is Aptugo?


As Aptugo creates a compiled version of your website, no extra code is run to render your website or application. If you debug almost any major CMS system out there, you'll find out it takes around 50 database queries and a few thousands lines of code to render your page (even if it is a static content page)

So, with that in mind, we decided to go and test our website (100% made by Aptugo) with well-known speed measurement tests.

Testing environment

Aptugo's website sits in a dedicated server (That's kinda a requirement as we don't want anyone but you to have access to your application and data). It is provided with excellency by Host Argentina (don't let the name fool you, our server is in Canada), and while it could be much faster, we don't have the money nor the need to upgrade our $150/mo server.

Server characteristics as follows:

  • Intel® Xeon® E3-1230V3 - 4 Cores - 3.3GHz - H/T
  • RAM 16GB DDR3
  • 1TB SATA3 + 1TB SATA3 + RAID1-SW
  • Enterprise Linux - CentOS 6 - 64 bit

As you can see, there's nothing "special" with our web-server.

Testing results

Now the good part, Of course, those results can vary if you run 'em a few times. First, we went to and ran a free stress test, you'll see the results by following this link: Load Impact test resultsWorst time was 700ms, while the average was 90ms (yup: 90 milliseconds) while replying to every user, of course, it was only a test with up to 50 active clients, so it is nothing to brag about.

Pingdom gave us a 93/100 with a 114ms load time. While that value fluctuates, it is close to the 90ms Load Impact gave us. Pingdom test results and history here.

Pagespeed Insights (Google) also was a good dude and gave us a 96/100 score. Check it out here.

On a test we really like, provided by Silktide, we scored 8.5 (we're way too new to score fine in the social part, but we got 10/10 in every technical aspect of the test) 

Please don't take this as a competence, we're sure you can achieve similar or even better results with better hardware or using known tricks plus a few more. We just wanted to show how a system made with Aptugo performs right out of the oven.

We will be performing more tests and linking them here. Stay tuned!
