“Fast or Slow” 是什麼？
Fast or Slow 是一項，提供從全世界各地多站點 (目前 18 個)，來進行速度與效能等測試的服務。
以下是由 Wordfence 寄發的訂閱電子報中，對於 Fast or Slow 的描述 ( 原文 )。
You may have already heard about Fast or Slow, our service that lets you test all your website performance metrics from locations around the world, completely free. The team behind Wordfence quietly launched this service a few weeks ago to help make the web faster.
Today, we have great news! Fast or Slow just got a major upgrade.
As of right now we are live in 18 locations around the world, expanded from our original twelve. We have also migrated Fast or Slow into Amazon’s AWS cloud, which gives us uniform performance across servers and our network, to ensure that your performance results are stable, accurate and repeatable.
In addition to more locations, we can now massively expand our capacity on demand, in a few minutes. Last Friday we received a huge spike in traffic when someone posted Fast or Slow to Hacker News.
With our new infrastructure and architectural improvements, Fast or Slow can now weather even the largest traffic storm.
You can try Fast or Slow on your own website by visiting the home page. We’ve also published a detailed breakdown of our new architecture and what was upgraded on the Fast or Slow blog.

如您所見，我們的網站由各國地區的載入都很快，就算是在少數幾個比較慢的國家，也只是相對較慢，不至於真的很慢。 也就是說，我們的網站在全球多國的連線狀態，有符合作為一個多語系網站的預期要求。 因為不能只顧網站主機在單一國家、地區快就好，而是多國多地區、多語系的客群與地理位置，都要納入整體規劃考量。
