FastComet Review: Honest Opinion After 40 Months Usage

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 FastCometthe best web hosting I ever used in my entire lifetime.

Unlike many FastComet Review with just general type contents, I was their paid customer since 2015 watching them growing from zero to hero, I talked about everything about FastComet in this review.

I can proudly recommend them, not just by words but from my experience of using them for the past 18 months.

P.S: I hold three separate accounts, One FastComet speedup account where I host this site BloggingIO and two scaleright plan where I host my niche sites.

Fastcomet review: The growth

FastComet Review: Honest Opinion After 40 Months Usage 1

I hold three separate accounts.

Now, they are serving more than 45,000+ customers from 83 different countries which are the fastest growth by any of the company since they launched their service for public few years back only.

There are tons of reasons why I recommend them as the best alternatives to other companies and lets get started.

Pros of FastComet Hosting 

#1 FastComet Offers Fast Loading Time

You might know Google ranks the website based on page speed, and so hosting plays a significant role in your rankings.

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

You can also check the updated results from Gtmetrix and Pingdom results below.

Last Feb, I moved one of my sites from an renowned company to FastComet 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.

FastComet Review: Honest Opinion After 40 Months Usage 7

Higher the plan, higher the resources. If you're looking for the fastest servers,choose Speedup else you can choose ScaleRight plan which gives you the balanced CPU cores and RAM where you can host unlimited websites.

FastComet Review: Honest Opinion After 40 Months Usage 8

FastComet is transparent towards their offering as you can see  the RAM and CPU availability listed for each plan while most companies don't show this data.

#2 Caching Mechanism

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

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

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

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.

#3 Same Renewal Price

You can renew all your services at the same prices you signed up with FastComet. For example, if you got a StartSmart for $2.95/month, you can renew with the same price for the lifetime.

If you get an account with $2.75/month with Bluehost or HostGator, the renewal goes like $7/month along with you need to pay for a lot of upsells like backups and security.

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

This image says you all.

As said in my A2 Hosting reviews, choose a  plan which allows you to host unlimited or more than one website. Whatever you do online, there will be a need for the second internet site.

If you are on a budget, choose the FastComet Startsmart else always go for higher plans like Scaleright or Speedup.

#4 Free Backup & Monitoring

JetBackUp provides Cpanel based Backup tools which usually costs around $3.95 per month for a single domain but comes bundled with FastComet.

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.

Every one of the provider in the industry charges $2-$4 per month for backups restores, you can cut short such price when you host here.

#5 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.

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.

FastComet Web Application Firewall stops attacks at the network edge, protecting your site from common web threats and stops attacks.

#6 Eight Datacenter Locations

  4. London, UK Europe
  5. Frankfurt, Germany, Europe
  6. Amsterdam, Netherlands, Europe

#7 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 sites on the same server.

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

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

#8 Free Domain 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

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

    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 them.

  • 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.

  • Theodore Nwangene says:

    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
