PROS:
  • Plan renewal price equal to the introductory price
  • Multiple data centers available to choose and accelerate loading times.
  • Unlimited email accounts, email calendars, and generous email quotas.
  • Keep your website safe from attacks with the FastComet security package.
  • Run your website from your smartphone thanks to your cPanel.
CONS:
  • Limited Disk Space.
  • Does not offer an uptime guarantee on its web hosting plans.
  • Live chat response time is acceptable, resolution times can be very long.
  • Sometimes there are warnings about abuse of resources.
  • Performance in uptime is acceptable but not optimal.

Founded in 2013 in San Francisco, California, FastComet currently serves more than 50,000 customers in 83 countries, has more than 70 employees, operating in 10 data centers worldwide. During its early years, the company focused primarily on providing hosting services to both businesses and private clients, but mainly in the area of Systems Administration.

It specialises in providing a Platform as a Service (PaaS) approach to SSD cloud hosting.

It is an excellent choice for beginners and provides all the basic functionality you will need through a very well presented interface.

Well, after examining and testing all the features of Fastcomet we can conclude that their plans are good and with acceptable features. Their SSD technology used for all their web hosting services is important point in their favor, as well as the open source program that allows many WordPress users to integrate several plugins with their sites.

The main disadvantage is its performance. For most webmasters, their uptime is not acceptable.

Customer service is good, similar to the average of other services available in the market. The prices offered are fair, compared to most other web hosting companies, which are too cheap or too expensive.

Therefore, I can consume that FastComet, is a web hosting company that is still trying to stabilize its performance and service offer, but in general you will get a good and regular service.

Features

With the help of FastComet you can get started with low-cost cloud hosting with as little effort as possible. The company offers encryption, firewall and anti-spam software as standard. Daily backups are available. Support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The team will be available to assist you as required.

A “free domain name for life” is offered only as long as you keep your website hosted with them. If you already have a website, transfers are offered to help you migrate from your old host. Beginners have access to more than 150 applications through the Softaculous one-click application suite, unlimited email accounts and free domain transfer to help get your website up and running quickly.

The wealth of features FastComet offers is extraordinary. Wide range of open source and proprietary company functions can empower users regardless of their level of familiarity with websites and hosting.

Daily and weekly backups make it easy to restore previous versions of the website in the event of a problem. In addition to multiple fairly standard versions of PHP to choose from, unlimited FTP accounts and Cron Jobs, advanced users can activate automatic application updates and use pre-installed GIT for optimal collaboration. The basic plans are somewhat limited when it comes to SSD storage, something that the company could improve in the future.

In addition, all users benefit from one of the most comprehensive security packages on the market. All plans come with a network firewall system and web applications, BitNinja server security, malware removal and many other utilities to keep your account secure.

Cloud Hosting with Full SSD

With SSD availability in all FastComet plans, our website runs up to ten times faster than a traditional hard drive. However, it also means that the infrastructure is more expensive. This cost is usually passed on to the customer but unlike other companies this is not the case with FastComet.

Then review and compare we can conclude that you will not get SSD hosting at a much cheaper price.

RocketBooster Tool

FastComet offers the RocketBooster tool that allows users to have 3 times more resources per account and 3 times fewer users on a server with a high-performance php7 hosting environment consisting of LiteSpeed LSAPI, APC & OPcache, Static and Dynamic Varnish cache.

CDN Cloudflare included at no additional cost

Cloudflare is a content delivery network (CDN) that can help improve page load times by caching your site and directing visitors to the nearest server. It replicates your website content in more than 190 server locations worldwide and your visitors will upload your website from the server closest to them. This will make your website load quickly no matter where your visitors are. Cloudflare also functions as a cached version of your website when the main site is offline.

Malware removal and firewall included

The FastComet team will solve malware and cyberattacks problems for you. Once the initial connection to your website is established, ModSecurity’s internal Web Application Firewall system validates the visitor’s request against a wide range of known application-level vulnerabilities. With the Application Firewall, you can be sure that your website is secure even if it does not meet the release date of the new patch.

Powerful and intuitive control panel and client area

With FastComet performing tasks that are complicated becomes very easy and intuitive. From one-click installers to a website creation toolkit, FastComet makes your life easier.

FastComet’s control area brings together everything you need in one place. You can manage everything, accounts, domains, billing and orders from anywhere, on any device and at any time. Full 360° control over your hosting service.

Free Migrations

The FastComet team will help you copy an existing site to your servers. The smaller plan grants only one migration, while the other two up to three sites.

45 day money back guarantee

In the market of hosting companies the average offers 30 days money back guarantee. But FastComet extends it to 45 days, which is very good. One month is not enough to test a web hosting correctly. 45 days allows more space for testing.

Performance

As for speed, we had high hopes. For a company with a “fast” name, I presume my expectations were too high.

Servers aren’t that slow, but we can’t admit they’re too fast either. After some tests we can see that the speeds are quite good, but only in Europe, the United States and Canada. That’s not unusual among hosting companies, but for one with a global network, I would have expected it to be better.

We’ve tested FastComet’s server response speed and the result shows that the server response time is quite acceptable even though it’s not close to the average speed of 395 ms indicated on your site. Our speed test shows that your load times float around 500 – 600 ms.

Uptime

FastComet indicates that it offers a 99.90% uptime guarantee, even for its most economical shared hosting plans. After performing the performance tests, we found that FastComet most of the time did not meet the target.

Latest Uptime Stats

  • February 2020 – 100%.
  • January 2019 – 100%.
  • November 2019 – 99.99%.
  • October 2019 – 99.98%.
  • September 2019 – 100%.
  • August 2019 – 99.99%.

After monitoring FastComet’s uptime performance regularly you can see that its uptime performance is not good when compared to other market companies like SiteGround.

FastComet indicates on its website that they can apply a credit of 10% of their monthly fee for each hour of network inactivity, up to 100% of their monthly fee for the affected service.

Customer Support

FastComet’s customer support team complies with response and resolution times. Customer service is provided through free calls, live chat, tickets and email. Although free phone support and live chat are offered, live chat is attended by team members who are not always technologically skilled.

FastComet states that it provides support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, day or night, rain or shine, at any time. We have tried Live Chat and in general I would say that it was acceptable, it fulfills its function. In addition, one of the most important elements is courtesy. The customer service staff is friendly and tried to help in the consultations.
