    Where should I host my websites, if it is only about speed?
    ...and where can I find a ranking about that?
    or
    ...is there any webpage where I can have a kind of test, where i test my website with different hosts?

    It all depends on what you plan on hosting. Speed is only 1 piece od the puzzle concerning a web site.

    For your average site, most hosting providers will provide enough bandwidth and stability to handle the average site.

    If you're planning on hosting a lot of streaming content, then yes you want a tier 1 provider with redundant fiber connections to the backbone.

    I'm sure there are some applets for testing bandwidth, usually a flash based or java based applet that measures throughput up and down. Just don't know of any right now, haven't had a need for one in a long time.

    Also, consider the distance between where your providers hosting connection and the target market is.

    I once heard of a great hosting provider in Asia, great connectivity, bandwidth, etc. But if your target market is us based, there are just too many things between here and there that can affect your visitors speed, that neither you or the hosting provider can control.
