When I first bought my Synology NAS DS718+, I never expected to “overtake” Google using the “PageSpeed Insights” tool. This is proof that a home NAS is capable of competing even with the most modern hosting services in terms of speed and reliability. Obviously, these results don’t mean much because I don’t have servers all over the world and data can vary from server to server, but for me, a small and insignificant grain of sand in the universe, with a small blog, this is a great satisfaction.
It took commitment and dedication to make this blog fast, and using various techniques. To reach this result, I had many sleepless nights and ate mostly junk food for months. So if your question is the following: Can a Synology NAS completely replace paid hosting? The answer is yes. Below are the results of my tests. You are all free to replicate them using the PageSpeed Insights Tool.
