Pros of Fastcomet Hosting

Excellent Uptime

Uptime is like the heart of a website.

What’s the point in running a website if the servers are busy and your website is down? Right?

Fastcomet offers a 99.9% uptime commitment for its web hosting services, email hosting, and other core services. 

In our testing, we found it to be true:

Website Speed

Excellent uptime is a must, but the website speed is important for two reasons:

  • User Experience: When your site takes lots of time to load, the user bounces and goes to another website, i.e., loss of your business indirectly.
  • Search Engines: as soon as a user lands on your website bounces and goes back to another site, it sends Google a signal that the website is having some issue, which results in lower google ranking and traffic.

Bottom line?

A slow website speed can hurt your Google rankings and traffic to your website.

Most hosting companies show super-fast load times of sites hosting on them, but in the real world is something weird. They use relatively new sites with low content while measuring site speed; hence, speed testing tools show them as winners.

We have performed speed tests on real sites using Fastcomet Hosting for years now, and here are the results:

Customer Support

Customer support is one of the critical things when it comes to choosing a good web hosting provider.

Fortunately, Fastcomet provides the best class 24/7/365 Live Chat, Email, and Phone Support within a 15 min. response time.

We initiated live chat support with a query to test the support team’s actual response time and knowledge.

Here is what we found:

Look at the conversation:

When we told them that we wanted to migrate from Godaddy to Fastcomet, they immediately said you need to create an FTP account as Godaddy uses their panel and not Cpanel.

(This shows that real experts are there to help you out whenever you need them)

Free Website Migration

Migrating a website is like playing with fire; it hurts if you don’t do it correctly.

Fastcomet offers free website migration, so if you’re thinking of switching from your current hosting company to fastcomet, you’re covered for absolutely free, meaning the real hosting experts do the job.

You don’t have to be worried about any technical mess.

45 Day money-back guarantee

Unlike other hosting companies, Fastcomet offers a 45-day money-back guarantee, so you get plenty of time to surf and decide on your host, and for any reason, you don’t like it, you can ask for a full refund.

Another thing we like about fastcomet is that it is one of the very few hosting companies that have mentioned every detail in transparency. (a sign that you’re going to be in good company)

Free Daily Backups

Fastcomet provides Free daily backups, meaning that if you end up messing up with your website for some reason; backup comes in the game. (very few web hosts offer this for free)

They store the last 30 days’ full backup, so you can quickly restore your website within a click. (too easy)

Hacked Website Recovery

Over 30,000+ websites get under hackers’ radar daily; although Fastcomet uses the best security technology and firewall rules to prevent such hacking attempts, sometimes things get more challenging.

You don’t need to be worried; Fastcomet’s security experts are there for you.

Usually, higher hosting plans offer such value, but you’re covered with all of their plans here.

Free Domain Transfer

Just like migrating sites from one hosting company to another.

Fastcomet provides free domain transfer, so another year is extended in domain validity whenever you transfer the domain from the old registrar to fastcomet.

(It’s saving on one-year domain renewal fees)

DIY Site Builder

Don’t want to deal with designers and developers? No Problem.

Fastcomet Shared hosting comes with a DIY site builder; It is one of the best options for small businesses and individuals.

No Matter if you want to start a blog or showcase a portfolio, from restaurants to real estate, they have more than 350+ prebuilt designs to get started.

Free Business Email

Take advantage and be more professional with business Email IDs.

Create unlimited email IDs like yourname@yourdomain.com, including email features like email forwarding, SMTP, email autoresponders, virus scanning, etc.

Fastcomet’s Pricing & Plan Limits

One of the best things about Fastcomet: Transparent Pricing

Plan Name FastCloud FastCloud Plus FastCloud Extra
First Year Pricing $2.95/pm $4.95/pm $5.95/pm
Renewal Pricing $9.95/pm $14.95/pm $19.95/pm

Cons of Fastcomet Hosting

High Renewal Prices

Fastcomet’s plans pricing starts from $2.95/mo, which is great, and annually for $35.40, but the regular renewal charges start from $9.95 per month.

However, the pricing increased 2x directly for renewals, its hosting industry practice to offer low pricing first.

It is justified compared to what they’re offering in their plans, but you can always shift your hosting later if the pricing is concerned.

No Free Domain

Many hosts like Bluehost offer free domain name registration for the first year, Fastcomet charges $9.95 for the first year, and 10.95$.

However, if your domain is on another registrar, Fastcomet transfers it to their platform for free, i.e., 1-year extension to domain validity.
