Fastcomet Review. Powerful, Affordable web hosting for small to medium websites

FastComet is recently gaining huge. popularity and many webmasters found switching to FastComet thus we decided to review their services to know if their services can keep up with their claims. To do the review, we purchased a shared hosting plan (Single website plan) and tested it for a month. We used WordPress to make a website to test and also used various tools like Pingdom, Gtmetrix, Sucuri Etc.

Performance

As we said, we have tested FastComet with various tools. We checked their server response time and website loading time from various locations of the world. In all of our tests, we found that the server responds very fast according to Google page speed insights a website’s response time should be below 200ms. Fastcomet server responded in 17ms. web page load time is also pretty decent a 600KB page loaded in 820ms and a 1.7MB web page loaded in 1.2 seconds, we choose American datacenter but website loaded really fast in Brazil and Australia. This is really impressive as your readers and search engine love fast websites and fast websites get better search engine ranking

what we loved about them

 

Fast servers and Good performance

They do have fast servers available. websites hosted on their servers responds and load very fast. Thaks to their SSD drives and advanced caching system. We have not faced any downtime during our 30 days of testing. Their uptime is really solid

Affordable price

When compared with the big players, Fastcomet provides very affordable services without compromising on quality and support. You may get a 50% off from other web hosts but for renewals, you will be charged two or three times more than your initial payment but FastComet is really cheap and charges same for renewals as well, and that is absolutely fantastic.

Free domain for life

They offer a free domain for life and it is really awesome. Other web hosts offer a free domain for the first year only, after the first year, You will have to pay for renewals. But FastCcomet renews domain for you as long as you host with them

Awesome support

They provide very good support via phone and live chat. We contacted them with many issues. They were really patient helpful. The customer care representatives they have are experts so that they can resolve issues really fast. Their support is available 24/7 it is good when some big players do not provide technical support through live chat

Free website migration

Moving website can be a cumbersome process especially if you are not an expert or your website is large. Fastcomet offers free website migration from your old web host while switching to them. Don’t forget that many of their competitors charge for this

Free SSL

You may already be heard that Google encourage webmasters to use SSL on their websites to make the internet more secure. From February 2017, Google chrome will flag websites without SSL certificate as “insecure” this might make users leave your website and if you can not afford it, it is better to install SSL certificate on your website. Fastcomet is giving Let’s Encrypt free SSL certificates with all of their hosting plans so that you do not have to spend extra money for your websites. This will make your website appear safe and you can also enjoy a slight increase in SEO
