FastComet Reviews

The FastComet review talks more about the uptime and real-time happenings, but first of all, you need to know how they started their business.

FastComet History​

Fastcomet, you find this name new and never heard off, (they have grown a lot in the past three years).

Fastcomet review: The growth

They are in system administration business for more than seven years, and later they started offering web hosting services to the public in 2013 becoming an official hosting partner for many multinational companies till now.

While writing this FastComet review, they are serving more than 25000+ customers from 70 different countries which are the fastest growth by any company since they launched their service for public few years back only.

Let's have a look at their plans.

FastComet SSD Shared hosting plans​


Host one website


  • Free domain for life
  • Unmetered traffic 

$2.95 / month

Same renewal price


Host Unlimited websites


  • 2X server resources
  • Unmetered traffic

$6.95 / month

Same renewal price


Host Ecom websites


  • Free Globalsign SSL
  • Unmetered traffic

$12.95 / month

Same renewal price

They provide three shared hosting plans.They are

  • StartSmart
  • ScaleRight
  • SpeedUp.

Here comes a quick Comparison of the above three plans. Each plan is designed keeping customers in mind.

  • StartSmart - Host one website, 15GB SSD space, free domain for life, unmetered traffic costs $2.95/month.
  • ScaleRight - Host multiple Websites, 25GB SSD space, free domain for life, unmetered traffic costs $6.95/month.
  • SpeedUp. - Host multiple websites, 35GB SSD Space, free Domain for life, Free SSL, unmetered traffic costs $12.95/month.

If you're a beginner you can start with StartSmart plan which costs $2.95/month including free domain for the lifetime where domain registration alone costs you $12.95 a year with Godaddy.

There are tons of reasons why I recommend them as the best alternatives to BlueHost and HostGator and few of the positives are

Pros of FastComet Hosting

#1 Google & Visitors love fast loading sites

You might know that Google ranks the website based on Page speed, and so hosting plays a significant role in your SERP ranking.

People tell you, website speed can be improved by optimizing images and by using cache plugins.

But what's the use of it?

Every website uses Smush it and W3 total cache plugin. So how to make your website even more faster?

The only solution is SSD Hard drives in hosting servers. Based on thousands of reviews, it is found that SSD drives improve website speed by more than 300%.

Only a few host on the planet using SSD drives and out of it, FastComet is the only hosts which provide SSD hosting for such a low cost.

The screenshot is taken just a few days back, and you can see my site loading up with just 144ms in the USA. I'm pretty sure FastComet provides fastest shared hosting servers.

This review of FastComet is wrote based on shared hosting plans.​

#2 Most Advanced Caching Mechanism

Most of hosting provider use three-layer caching mechanism while FastComet comes with five layer caching mechanism.

The Five layer Caching Mechanism includes
Varnish Cache

Varnish cache is the superior caching technology which improves your Time to First Byte (TTFW) to a greater extent 10x thus delivering the fast loading websites.​

Google Pagespeed

Fastcomet servers come loaded with Google page speed optimization. It's a tool which improves page load time faster by 21%, and Google develops this technique.

PHP 7 With APC and OptimumCache

OptimumCache reduces memory usage, decreases the number of disk operations - all while improving your website's response time.

APC is an alternate caching mechanism that caches objects instead of the whole page providing fast loading images.

CloudFlare CDN Caching

CloudFlare operates 30 data centers around the world. The CDN automatically caches your static files at our edge nodes, so these files are stored closer and delivered faster to your visitors while delivering your dynamic content directly from your web server.


Memcached is a memory caching system used by one of the most popular websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Wikipedia, which significantly improve your website performance.

#3 Improves your Site SEO

Wondering how it improves your site SEO?

Fastcomet has a good policy which is ignored by most web hosts over the world. They don't allow Websites which has child porn, spam and scam sites to get hosted on their servers. Check this

First, know how Shared web hosting works.

It's a single server where hundreds of websites hosted on the same IP. Let's look at this condition.

If a server contains 200 sites and 100 of them are related to porn, gambling, viruses, etc. as mentioned above, then your website will be considered as spam by Google, since all sites using the same IP.

So what if your shared hosting doesn't allow such sites, and you are free to rank higher on search engines?

#4 Same Renewal Price

They have a Strict fair policy for 100% customer satisfaction, and there is no upsells like most hosting companies do.

You can renew all your services at the same prices you signed up. For example, if you got a single website plan for $2.95/month, you can pay the same amount for your lifetime.

fastcomet review - pricing

How awesome, is it?

There is a 45-day money back guarantee: If you are not happy they will provide a full refund and also there is no contract required, and you are free to cancel your service anytime with no extra charges.

#5 Free Backup & Monitoring

For excellent performance and security, they perform daily and weekly backups of all client files, databases, and emails to an independent storage array. Note the point it's for free and not for any additional cost.

Suppose anything gets messy, you can always restore from a point-in-time recovery snapshot, completely free of charge. Their proactive monitoring approach prevents 99% of most common web hosting issues and ensures excellent performance and continuous uptime for your website and they store backups upto 30 days based on packages.

You don't need an additional backup plugin for WordPress when you are with FastComet.

#6 Proactive Security Monitoring

They will do a regular audit on their servers to protect sites from virus scan and malware.That's what tech people say as Proactive monitoring.

Their Web Application Firewall stops attacks at the network edge, protecting your site from common web threats and stops attacks before they even reach your website.

Check my FastComet Video review posted on youtube.

#7 Seven data centers locations

While writing this FastComet review, they provide service from seven data centers across the globe. They are

  1. Chicago, US North
  2. Dallas, US Central
  3. London, UK Europe
  4. Frankfurt, Germany, Europe
  5. Amsterdam, Netherlands, Europe
  6. Singapore, Asia-Pacific
  7. Tokyo, Japan, Asia

#8 Additional features

Another great stuff from them where they will do all kind of installation stuff for more than 150 open source applications. You can also ask for extra module installation to make your blog better.

Suppose any of your friend planning to start a website, bring them to FastComet, and they even help them to install themes on WordPress and all other platforms.

Since I host multiple websites (more than ten sites), I love the automatic upgrade feature. If WordPress gets upgraded, then my sites will be automatically gets updated without any downtime.

#9 Free Domain Hosting for Life

If you host with them for life, then they will host your domain for life for absolutely free of cost (No first year free, second year $15 blah blahs).

Godaddy Charges $15/year for domain renewal, and if you renew your site for five years, then it costs you $60 for five years.

You can save such costs while you host with Fastcomet.

#10 Customer Support

They have a rocket-fast support team which takes 10 minutes or less response time for all ticket inquiries. Apart from it, you can use website transfer by which you can move your site from your old host for completely free of cost.

They provide fully managed hosting Support for email, FTP, website transfer, and setup, they also provides support to 150 + Open Source applications.

FastComet Uptime

I never added uptime results in this FastComet review initially since most of time it's 99.9%.

However, few members asked about the uptime of their servers. Check out the screenshot which shows 100% uptime of this site. Check out my past two months uptime and I got 100% and 99.99% in recent times.

You can also check my website loading time which is aggressive fast.

Note: The server is based in Dallas, so that site loads with 1 sec in farthest location due to latency and this happens will all data centers.

If your visitors are from Asia, then choose Singapore data center.

Steps to buy hosting account

I added screenshots especially for new people to understand the sign-up process.

If you have any queries, I will help you to do things better.​

Step 1: Choose your prescribed plan and move to next step.

Step 2: Register the domain for free

Step 3: Check the final amount and pay using PayPal or CreditCard.

            Great review Mohan,
            This is my first time of hearing about Fastcomet and it seems to be a very good, reliable and affordable hosting provider.

            The price is really off the ground. And yes, most hosting companies I’ve used always increases their price when you want to renew.

            I think I’ll consider this company when I’ll be working on my next project.

            Thanks for sharing

              Mohan Raj - August 12, 2015

              Yeah Fast comet is really good but unknown to most people. Let you try and Share your experience with our readers.

            Jason - August 22, 2015

            If i would have heard about this before, i would have went for it. But sadly i choose Stable host

              Mohan Raj - August 22, 2015

              Stablehost and Fastcomet are same is every aspect rather than price. Most of sites till uses Stablehost and running 3 sites on fastcomet servers. once my stablehost subscription ends , I’m planning to move at fastcomet. but stablehost never created big problems for me

            Bigwas - August 25, 2015

            The best thing about Fastcomet is that it has 5 layer of caching which make your site blazingly fast.

            Michael S Johnathan - August 26, 2015

            All things happened suddenly. With your recommendation I purchased Fastcomet and I will be thank ful to you for life. Faced worst ever situation with my previous hosts lost more Euros with Hosting companies and I never thought Fastcomet will help me in many ways.

            Thank you for finding this product hided by overwhelming Hosting companies promotion and I can’t express my happiness about the product. They deserve more than 100 stars.

            My Top Pick for Fast comet is

            1. Domain Hosting for life – only siteground provides such offer but Hosting costs 4x higher than Fastcomet.

            2. SSD Drives – Really Hats off to the team . I can visibly see the difference of loading time of my SSD hosted websites vs traditional Hosted websites. Page speed Google loves so as Fastcomet delivers it.

            3. Renewal Price – I surrendered.In the Industry for 4-5 years I never know any companies provide same renewal prices. As said by you , I’m trying to find such company.

            4. Support – Support via chat , phone, email at anytime. I can’t ask more than that.

            5. Caching & Backup – 5 layers of caching mechanism 🙂 Very well made by fastcomet team. They are thinking beyond expectation and so as 5 layer caching mechanism.

            Hostgator bluehost ask $20 for monthly backup while fastcomet makes daily weekly monthly backup for free of cost.

            I’m feeling proud than others by using fastcomet. Thanks a lot.

            Akeem Momoh - August 29, 2015

            Great article , this is the very first time i am hearing about this hosting company and I have heard a lot of positive things about them. Well I hope that they will also serve my website very well.

            Ana - November 21, 2015

            A nice detailed review.
            I still have a few lingering doubts, though, because the author is an affiliate – I’ve had bad experiences when I trusted hosts’ affiliates.
            Still, I’ll keep this in mind, as the host seems good.

              Mohan Raj - November 21, 2015

              All the Products promoted with mycyberincome performs better than What you Expect. In that Case, FastComet tops than all other products and You can use it without any confusions.

              Use it and if you don’t like it, no questions asked your money will be refunded to you in 45 days. People like you and me will love fastcomet ever

                Ana - November 21, 2015

                I sure will try FastComet, they look very good.
                Thank you for the review.

            Jason - December 28, 2015

            Thanks for the view on StableHost. I will check FastComet when the subscription ends with StableHost and make a decision.

            Nate - February 3, 2016

            So why you don’t use fastcomet to host this website. Your nameservers are:

            Seemed to be another affiliated page of yours.

              Mohan Raj - February 3, 2016

              Thanks for your hatred comments 🙂

              I want to clarify few things with you.

              1. The above review is for Fastcomet shared hosting and I think you should have at least some brief knowledge about shared hosting.If your site traffic is moderate, you can use Shared hosting and its good for beginners. when your site traffic hitting high visits you need to use VPS on your site since it can handle more visitors at a time. if you’re site traffic is extremely high you need to use a dedicated server.

              My site is getting high visits and so moved to Wiredtree VPS which offered good black friday deal for me. I’m paying $85/month for Wiredtree while FastComet costs around $64/year. As you can see the pricing, beginners cant afford VPS..so I’m suggesting FastComet to all.

              You did a great research and found that I’m using Wiredtree nameservers =D .I’m not hiding anything here and you can check my facebook status https://www.facebook.com/mohanrckn/posts/1136775266334978 where I mentioned that I’m using Wiredtree hosting and even Mycyberincome Homepage shows you that my site is hosted by Wiredtree.

              You’re statement “Seemed to be another affiliated page of yours” shows some hatred towards my site.Well…Its not a matter for me but I want to say few things. I Promoting only fewer products (say 4-5) which are best in class and 9/10 clients are satisfied with my suggestions right from themes,plugins and hosting etc.

              Please feel free to reply once you get time 🙂

            saksham Chauhan - March 1, 2016

            Thought to start a website and searched for a good host so i dropped into mycyberincome and came to know about fastcomet…
            though the host is quite expensive than the other big players in the market but it is worth it!
            the quality of their host as well as after sales support is truly awesome! no issues so far 🙂
            if u want a power packed host without any issues then straightaway switch to fastcomet, i bet u wont be dissappointed!

              Mohan Raj - March 3, 2016

              The Host is quiet Expensive . Do you feel like that Saksham ? about the pricing. So far, it costs lower than Major hosts like Hostgator, Bluehost etc 🙂

            Mohan Raj - March 11, 2016

            Hope you had joy with extra discounts. Thanks for pointing out about missing contact form. I just replaced my old contact plugin with another stunning plugin. 🙂

            Lee T - May 5, 2016

            I recently moved one of my event site from blogger to WordPress through Fastcomet.

            Happy to see that fastcomet keeps my site live even though there is unusual spike in traffic for sometimes.

            I’m using them for exactly 2 months and I will watch their performance and if they are good,I will move my main site to Fastcomet from trafficplanethosting.

              Mohan Raj - May 5, 2016

              Hope you love it. Try Ecommerce plan which handles better traffic than some VPS hosting in the market right now 🙂

            Dinesh - May 21, 2016

            I bought Fastcomet when it came to market and still using it. There was no review on that time but I choosed with brave heart.

            I came to appreciate for promoting them

            Mohan Raj - May 22, 2016

            Shared hosting indicates sharing of resources, and you can utilize maximum resources as per your website need. But when a single website affecting other ten websites on our shared servers, then possibly hosts will indicate that you are using more resources.

            If your site uses more bandwidth, you can opt for VPS hosting where you will get guaranteed bandwidth say 2 or 3 TB which is more than enough for most sites 🙂

            Karlie - June 20, 2016

            I am almost sold to use FastComet, but I come across this review at howshost – here they say pretty much all good things, except about the hosting speed. You can see here:

            “However, it is not the same case as “The more plowing and weeding, the better the crop”. Based on the monitoring outcomes, FastComet performance in speed is not as satisfying as we expected. In the past thirty days, the average server response time of the company is 650ms.

            When compared with many other reputable hosting companies, the hosting speed of FastComet is relatively slow. A real example is InMotion Hosting. The company takes 237ms merely for responding to a server request.”

            Now I am thinking, so should I go with Fast Comet, or should I go back to looking at InMotion again?

            Would value your comments…

              Mohan Raj - June 20, 2016

              Thanks for your valuable comment, Karlie. I don’t know why they got 650ms as response time which is relatively higher than industry standards. I suspect few reasons.

              1. The website they tested for response time might be far away from the data center location. To confirm further I did few tests. I tested my site bloggingio which is hosted in Dallas USA datacenter and the response time I got is 250ms which is best in class. Recent response time

              I checked my old report posted here – https://bloggingio.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/mci-in-fastcomet.png

              The report shows response time from 72ms in nearer location to 1 sec in farthest location.

              To confirm further, I tested my friend site which is hosted on inmotion hosting and the results are similar where the response time is 800ms- 1sec in farthest location. source – https://bloggingio.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/inmotion-hosting-test.png

              This higher response time is due to the network latency and this happens with all datacenters.

              So my idea is to choose the data center nearer to your location. For ex. If your visitors are from Asia pacific then choose Japan or Singapore data center to enjoy 100ms response time in Asian countries.

              Both Fastcomet and inmotion hosting are good in terms of speed but considering other facts like priority support , same renewal price and free domain for life, Fastcomet is ahead of competitors.

              Hope you loved the things I explained.

              For your success

            Welcome to the community 🙂

            Srikanth - October 1, 2016


            I am currently using ispaze and I am happy with them with almost all features as fast comet

            But thank you for letting me know , I will use them for next project .

            Its good to have multiple hostings 🙂

            ahmad - October 16, 2016

            i think its gives more resource’s but , its still new on webhost , its mean there is no trusted and truth , what this companies can be beside siteground ?
            i think the lack of more dollars not mean the best

              Mohan Raj - October 17, 2016

              When SiteGround founded in 2004 they don’t have the trust and truth. If no one trusted Siteground at beginning , they won’t be here lasting for 10+ years . The same applies to FastComet. They possess good uptime, knowledgeable support and as you said , more resources. Someone need to pass the trust and truth, so I recommending them.

              There is nothing wrong is promoting a good product right ?

            Nate Cheara - January 5, 2017

            First of all, sorry for my bad English it is not my native language.

            Just one thing that make me dispointed is, their hosting is not supported HTTP/2 at this time. So I’d like to know: How is HTTP2 really important?

            Please reply me back, sir.

            Thank you very much
            Nate Cheara

              Mohan Raj - January 6, 2017

              I first apologize for not making a quick reply. Having HTTP/2 is great to serve web pages faster by reducing page sizes. Yes, Fastcomet won’t provide inbuilt HTTP/2 but still you can make it with the help of CloudFlare.

              Cloudfare, official CDN partner of FastComet offers HTTP/2 optimization (https://www.cloudflare.com/website-optimization/http2/). If you make an account with Fastcomet, raise a ticket regarding Cloudfare installation, they will do it along with HTTP/2 optimization 🙂

              Hope I cleared your queries.

            Toni Laird - January 6, 2017

            We had a terrible experience with FastComet! We signed up for a month and after a few weeks decided to go with their 3 year plan. Just after this we were getting ‘Resource Limit is reached’ issues and contacted them for support. They said everything was fine at their end and this continued until I found a page on FastComet actually relating to the same problem and suggesting to install a plugin. It was caused by WordPress API and their servers!! Our site was then down again and when we contacted FastComet support they said they were having a DOS attack. After a few hours our site came back. Then is was down again and we were told the same again. After 10 hours downtime, 3 outages and uptime of only 93.88% we decided enough. On a positive they were polite, courteous and refunded us in full. I would never use them again though!

              Mohan Raj - January 6, 2017

              Sad to hear, you have bad time with Fastcomet. Unexpected things do happen and I’m using their service for nearly 15 months and still going great.

              Uptime robot stats shows 99.97% uptime for December 2016 and thanks for letting me know about your issues 🙂

              Hope you have great time with your new host 🙂

            Petros - January 29, 2017

            I have 5 WordPress websites currently hosted with tsohost.co.uk. First, its good host but i want the additional SSD Hosting and CND services. I plan to move other hosting, was thinking a2hosting (SWIFT plan) or fastcomet (MULTI-WEBSITE plan) shared hosting. I read good feedbacks about fastcomit and a2hosting but realize may it was fake. Now Im confuse which i will choose coz they both have good feedbacks and great bundles. Anyone can help? Please no fake feedbacks for the sake of affiliate please.

            Mohan Raj - January 29, 2017

            Thanks for making comment 🙂 At first, I want to clarify you that If I planned to promote hosting company based on affiliate program, then I can promote WPEngine or any other EIG companies which are offering $200 per sale. But that’s not true in my case and I promote products only after using it.

            Here is my honest opinion.

            FastComet and A2 Hosting both offering reliable and possess great uptime, speed and support.

            The thing that makes differences
            – Fastcomet offers free domain name for lifetime and same renewal price but A2 Hosting won’t provide free domain and also renewal cost is higher.
            – A2 Hosting offers turbo hosting by which one can enjoy fastest loading sites and no other hosting offering such speed ( personally tested )

            If pricing is not a thing, go for a2 hosting and enjoy fast loading sites.
            If you’re on a budget and need value for money hosting, then go for FastComet.

            You can check my a2 hosting review as well – https://bloggingio.com/a2-hosting-review/

            Hope my opinion helped you 🙂

            petros - January 29, 2017

            Thank you for the info!

            petros - January 29, 2017

            Regarding wordpress, are both on the same level of service?

              Mohan Raj - January 29, 2017

              Again, if you need speed i.e fastest loading site, go for a2 hosting and get turbo hosting.

              Else go with FastComet which too loads faster than Siteground, hostgator, bluehost and most other companies on the planet.

            Hey hi Mohan Raj,

            Awesome post !!! I am first time planning to launch my website and planning to take E-comm plan and no where my project is related to e-commerce but still planning to buy this because of the unlimited and better efficiently of the system.

            So what would you suggest and we are developing it in JAVA so will this support or else do we face some issues.

            Need some guidelines as this is our first project and have no idea on any hosting domains

            FastComet does not work well. I paid for hosting for Unlimited Domains. I am allowed to host one domain. For the second domain, you must pay for hosting again. It’s not fair. I asked for a refund on the second day after the purchase. I need hosting for Unlimited Domains. They just do not answer. And do not return money. They are deceivers.

              You do have 45 days money back guarantee, till then you can claim for refund. Only StartSmart costs $2.95/month allows hosting single domain, if you bought this plan, you can host only one domain. If you need to host multiple website go for higher plans.

            It’s been really great that I got FastComet hosting for my projects in spite of repeated thoughts of going to EIG hosting companies.

            I was happy with my selection. The best thing I get everything managed right from SSL installation to Bub fixex.

            Their latest FastComet web builder is a great addition to their business with already existing power packed features.

            It would be great if they provide the features for years to come. Cheers.

            I just wanted to move my website to Fastcomet.com, I must say maybe their price is ok but the tech support is so slow.
            I have few tickets (on my first day\ installation day) that I was waiting over 1hour 10 min.

            me as webmaster the most important is tech support. I don’t mind to pay X20% more, just give me a good service.

            not recommending …
