When comparing FastComet Vs SiteGround, they operate in similar way but with same renewal price and free domain for lifetime, FastComet has an edge over SiteGround. There is also an 45 days money back guarantee with FastComet but SiteGround comes with 30 days guarantee.

Though SiteGround prices are higher when compared to FastComet, you can use the SiteGround 2018 Black Friday once live and save money.

Another advantage over SiteGround is Uptime (99.99%) whereas FC is (99.97%). So, finally its upto you to choose the best out of two. I'll update this FastComet Vs SiteGround content with more details in near future.

FastComet Vs Hostgator

FastComet is considered to be one of the greatest HostGator Alternative in recent times.

I started my blogging with HostGator back in 2013 but the performance, and operation of HostGator declined a lot in recent years, let's see who wins the race.

HostGator lacks a lot in many features like no free SSD/SSL/CDN options, no free backups costs additional $2/month and during non-production hours you need to wait for a longer period of time to get connected with support agents.

On the other hand, FastComet offers everything you need from a hosting company. The only advantage of HostGator($2.75/month) over FC is pricing ($2.95/month) though if you get SSL and backups, the HostGator package easily crosses over $5/month. So, the clear winner between FastComet Vs HostGator is FastComet.

FastComet Vs BlueHost

BlueHost and HostGator was owned by same company and it reflects the same in features, and pricing.

45 days money back guarantee, Free SSL/CDN/SSD, more data center locations, free daily backups, same renewal price and free domain for lifetime, FastComet is way ahead of BlueHost in all departments.

P.S: Account cancellation with BlueHost is not easy, you need to call their US team and confirm to cancel your account and there is no free site transfer option with BlueHost.

FastComet Vs DreamHost

The major advantage of DreamHost over other companies is 97 days money back guarantee and but lacks in CDN, free backups and more over the pricing costs $7.95/month while FastComet plan costs $2.95/month.

If you love DreamHost 97 days money back guarantee, you can choose it else if you're looking for free domain, same renewal price, fast loading sites, FastComet is the best option to get started.

Note: DreamHost doesn't come with cPanel.

FastComet Vs Godaddy

Godaddy "best for the domain, worst for Hosting" heard this quote a long time ago. Let's see which one rocks.

Think about the condition of GoDaddy, they can't offer free SSL since the paid SSL is one of the income generating product for them. GoDaddy don't have an option to use CDN/SSD and charges additional for backups. Also from the reports, the uptime and speed is poor compared to most hosting companies.

I think no explanation needed to compare FastComet vs GoDaddy, the above data explains you all.

FastComet Vs Inmotion Hosting

This will be one of the best comparisons FastComet Vs A2 Hosting. Both operate and offers similar features and I found two major differences between them.

A2 Hosting has an localized payment gateway for example, customers from India, Brazil etc can use their local bank cards to get an account with A2 Hosting and that's the sole reason, I put them on #1 spot in Best WordPress Hosting in India.

On the other hand A2 Hosting don't offer free domain and renewal charges are 3X while FastComet renewal charges are same.

Concluding:

I hope this FastComet Vs post cleared many of your thoughts and I'm planning to expand to expand the content with much more details in coming days. 

If you need a comparison of FastComet with a host that is not in the list, do let me know in comments.

    Undoubtedly FastComet is the best. I just bought a hosting plan via FastComet and it works best. While BlueHost tend to be most popular but it doesnt have features what one expect. FastComet has all what you want. It is not known to many people, but is a hidden treasure. i would rate fastcomet 10/10 in every aspect. the best thing is there support! which replies within 15 minits and resolves the problem in 20 minutes.

    Go for FastComet if you want a quality hosting.
    Buy Hosting from Mohan’s referral and have your website integrated by him!

    yes it is TRUE.

    My own website is also being constructed by him 🙂
    and i am very happy with his service.

  • Nikhil Narkhede says:

    Hi Mohan,
    When we talk about hosting we talk about reliability. So having the hosting with maxinim uptime is what works well. Thanks for comparing several web hosting companies. Keep sharing your knowledge 🙂

    • Mohan Raj says:

      Yes Uptime is the most important factor for a web hosting company and regarding FastComet it has 99.9% uptime for the past 8 months 🙂 . Thanks for your idea. It will help me to improve the post further 🙂

  • Jason says:

    What is the traffic bandwidth limit in shared hosting? Heard if our script uses kinda more resources, we will be in trouble?

  • Rakesh says:

    Hi Mohan

    I was about to order but the SAle Guy at Fast Comet stated that there is a Size limitation of MySQL Daabase whih is just 300 Mb whereas all other leading Share hosting providers are having no size limitation.

    As you know E-Commerce is next big thing and I’ve my online store but as FasComet has fixed size limit on all their shared package to 300 Mb per database even for E-Commerce package then how do I decide abou FastComet though they are fast in response.

    • Mohan Raj says:

      Thank you for reaching me about Fastcomet. You should know how leading companies say they provide unlimited things, but they are not truly unlimited.

      Take a scenario, if the SQL database is unlimited, then 100 websites hosted in a shared environment will try to utilize it fully. As a result, your site will be down without your knowledge. In the case of Fastcomet, they mentioned it as 300 MB in raw data size limit for all shared hosting. So all other domains hosted along with you can’t use higher resources and as a result, every site hosted in the server will get optimal performance.

      Every hosting company has some limitations in sql databased but I think Fastcomet is just transparent about what it offering to customers.

  • Ron says:

    FastComet is better than a EIG owned host but they are far from a high performance host and in my opinion far from fast.

    You can see actual performance

    • Mohan Raj says:

      I deleted the link to your website since I feel suspicious because the email address you used for commenting is not in use.

      You mentioned that Fastcomet ecom plan is not good but I think you might be wrong. You mentioned Ecom plan has 15 Entry process , 2124 kb/s IO and 1 cores. But actually it is 20 Entry process, 6164 kb/s IO and 4 cores.

      I think you compared some other lower plan or some other hosts results. All other hosts you recommend costs more than $25 and that’s not a true comparison with respect to a shared hosting which costs $6/month .

      Hope to hear more from you.

  • Alaa says:

    I use Fastcomet about 8 month ago and they professional in everything
    they help me to install magento 2 theme for free , this service will cost me about 50 $ but they do this free for me
    and the support is so fast, you can create Email account of your domain without hosting plan, you can do that by they client area
    there is a lot of tool and service in Fastcomet
