New Test Server Regions

We’re pleased to announce new test server regions to analyze your URLs. In addition to our main Vancouver test region, you can now test your URL in Dallas, London or Sydney. Like the other test options, log in to access this new functionality.

Select your Test Server Region in the Advanced Option pulldown.

Once in a report, you can compare the URL’s performance to another region (using the same page settings).

Click on “Compare to another region” to generate a comparison of the report between 2 different regions.
Select a region and click GO!

A comparison will be generated with the 2 reports.

PageSpeed and YSlow scores are generally the same, but page load times and waterfall graphs should be different.

You can also change the default Test Server Region in your User Settings on the Dashboard. GTmetrix will use this selection whenever you analyze a new page.
