"Slow is the new down, and we're excited to be providing real-time speed and uptime performance data on top eCommerce sites."

Panopta began tracking the performance of top eCommerce sites in 2011. Since then, the company has seen an overall improvement in uptime and speed. For example, during the holiday season 2014, 20% of the companies in the index failed to meet the 99.9% uptime benchmark. In 2011, it was 30% of companies that missed this mark. A summary of these results, including the top and bottom performing sites, is now available in an infographic at

According to eMarketer, holiday eCommerce sales are expected to grow 13.9% in 2015 to $79.4 billion. A moment of downtime, or a second of delay, will be more costly than ever. In addition to providing real-time information on what sites are up, down or slow, Panopta will deliver a post-holiday report in January. The report will be available to anyone who requests it by signing up at

“Slow is the new down, so we’re very excited to be providing data on both speed and uptime performance. Our new index ranks the sites and also provides an incredible level of drill-down detail based on the enormous amount of data we’ve collected.” Said Shabbir Karimi, President. “We expect that many people will find this information incredibly valuable and interesting.”
