Uptime shows how much of the time a website is available to customers. It is important to mention that there’s no such thing as 100% uptime. Servers require maintenance and that’s why tiny instances when website is unavailable can appear. Anyway it is vital your provider’s uptime is as close to 100% as possible.
Loading speed is very important too, especially in today's fast-paced world. If your website takes longer than 3 seconds to load, there is a 53% chance your customers will leave.
