FastComet Review.

How do you feel, when your hosting company gives you the best managed hosting experience and you keep on making passive money every day?

I'm talking about FastComet, the best web hosting I ever used, and I can proudly recommend them, not just by words but from my experience of using them for the past 18 months.

If reading texts in not your cup of coffee, you can directly visit official website to know more about them.

FastComet Review

You find this name FastCometnew and never heard off, (they have grown a lot in the past three years) and now, I hold three separate accounts hosting multiple sites of mine.

Fastcomet review: The growth

I hold three separate accounts.

There are tons of reasons why I recommend them as the best alternatives to other WordPress hosting companies and through this FastComet review, I shared my insights about the company.

Pros of FastComet Hosting

#1 Google & Humans love fast loading sites

You might know 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 caching 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 faster?

One optimal solution is to use SSD drives in hosting servers. SSD drives have the tendency to improve website speed by more than 300%.

The screenshot is taken just a few days back, and you can see my site loading up with just 144ms in the USA.

You might think, is SSD drives a big thing to write at the beginning of this FastComet review? Actually, this content was first written in 2015 where most companies never offered SSD Cloud hosting and FastComet was the first of few companies to do so.

Last Feb 2017, I moved one of my sites to FastComet from a so called renowned web hosting company and luckily, I captured the loading time of the site and have a look at it.

To continue further, I want to let you know that the speed is achieved on Speedup plan. The plan offers more resources like RAM & CPU cores, and also reduces the number of sites hosted per server.

Let's have a look at the server resources of each plan. Higher the plan, higher the resources. If you're looking for the fastest web hosting plan, you can choose Speedup plan else you can choose ScaleRight plan which gives you the balanced CPU cores and RAM where you can host unlimited websites.

#2 Most Advanced Caching Mechanism

Most of hosting providers use three-layer caching mechanism while FastComet comes with five layer caching mechanism. The Five layer Caching Mechanism includes

  • 1. VARNISH caching
  • 2. gOOGLE pAGE SPEED
  • 3. apc/oPcache
  • 4. CDN CACHING
  • 5. memcached

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

You just need to Turn ON to enable Varnish cache.

Update: The company started supporting HTTP/2 and it is responsible for reducing latency which in terms increases loading speed further. The HTTP/2 is enabled by default on StartSmart and ScaleRight plan.

This update section is added to this FastComet review post to bring you the latest update with FastComet.

#3 Same Renewal Price

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 renew with the same price for the lifetime.

How awesome, is it?

Can you name a hosting company offering same renewal price? It's highly impossible because most companies charge 5x during renewal and that's why I recommend this hosting.

This image says you all.

#5 Free Backup & Monitoring

JetBackUp is the company which provides Cpanel based Backup tools which usually costs around $3.95 per month for a single domain but comes free of cost with all hosting plans with this hosting company.

You can take full account, File, DNS Zone, Email accounts, Cron jobs, SSL Cert and Database backups.

Suppose anything gets messy, you can always restore from a point-in-time recovery snapshot, completely free of charge.

#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.

In this FastComet review, I'm writing about new security updates below.

Update: FastComet made a partnership with BitNinja to offer better security for its servers. BitNinja is known for its all in one security solutions defending websites by incorporating machine language to prevent attacks.

#7 Eight Datacenter Locations

While writing this FastComet review, the company provides service from eight data centers across the globe. They are

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

FastComet offers the most data center locations when compared to competitors. 

#8 Observer Monitoring

How many times did you felt frustrated when your site goes down? Shared hosting is all about sharing resources and when some website takes more resources, it affects other websites on the same server.

To avoid unnecessary contradictions, FastComet introduced Observer Monitoring system where you can track your sites resource usage on your own, so you can actually understand whether your sites are outgrown shared hosting environment or other sites affecting your sites performance.

The observer dashboard is transparent with all essential data like disk usage, IO usage, Email space.

#9 Free Domain Hosting for Life

This is one of the existing part of FastComet review. 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).

Even if you host with them for ten years, they'll renew your domain for free of cost. Another stunning offer from this company.

#10 Customer Support

Hands down. The best customer support folks work at FastComet.

You can see from the below image, if you have a problem on SSL installations, you can reach the right person by clicking on SSL installation/setup without wasting a single second.

They have a rocket-fast support team which takes 10 minutes or less response time for all ticket inquiries.

My last ticket on 21 March 2018, I saw my emails are getting failed to deliver, so I raised a ticket at 05:53 and got an email back at 06:00 with the message "Your issues are fixed"

Not only with FastComet, be with support team of any product, always raise a ticket with screenshots and all valid details, so that you can get an immediate solution.

#11 FastComet Uptime

I never added uptime results in this FastComet review, since most of the time it's 99.99%.

However, few visitors asked about the uptime of their servers. Here is the uptime of my sites for 2018. The uptime is 99.99% and the last downtime was in Jan

    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

  • Jason says:

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

  • Mohan Raj says:

    absolutely. No other Hosting at my knowledge doesn’t have this functionality.

  • Mohan Raj says:

    One of the best review I got from a visitors for my site till date.

    Thanks.

  • Akeem Momoh says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

      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.

  • Mohan Raj says:

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

  • ahmad says:

    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 says:

      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 ?

  • Toni Laird says:

    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 says:

      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 says:

    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 says:

    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 says:

    Thank you for the info!

  • petros says:

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

    • Mohan Raj says:

      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.

  • Mohan Raj says:

    Hope you love it, Sourabh.

  • Timix A Thomas says:

    I am fed up of my current web host and looking for a better web host.And I am considering fastcomet too. After reading this review, I Think I should go with fastcomet.

  • Kulvir Singh says:

    Hello,

    Sir, I’m looking to buy Fastcomet hosting but looking for…. Because I missed your previous one.

    Thanks

  • Nagavarma Kankipati says:

    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

    Thanks

  • Olga says:

    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.

    • Mohan Raj says:

      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.

  • Duke says:

    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 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.

  • idan says:

    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 …

  • Deval Shah says:

    wow brother very nice review . i already purchase this vps hosting thanks to u good job ..

    • Mohan Raj says:

      Thanks for the comment, Deval. Hope you’re having a good time with FastComet. If possible, can you add your reviews in comments?

  • Abu jad says:

    my best choice was Fastcomet, testing many hosting companies
    but I wasn’t really happy ( low speed – bad support etc ) even siteground got many problems with them

  • Meer Zaidy says:

    I am also using FastComet speed up plan and absolutely loving it. Are you on shared hosting or vps?
