FastComet is a hidden gem in the hosting world. With a list of long and useful features, you can build a simple website or a complex one. FastComet have the plan options and advance server facility to grow your online venture. What more is you can start with the free trial. FastComet is suitable for beginners, developers, designers, and you (everyone).

FastComet entered into the web hosting business seven years ago. However, the company didn’t launch public cloud hosting until 2013. In the process, FastComet kept a solid grasp on its core values, building on its previous experience to deliver a solid Platform as a Service (PaaS). It’s fair to say the company is always evolving because the business model changes as needed. For instance, the company has migrated from a more service-oriented model to a product-oriented model without giving up its high level of customer service and technical expertise.

I decided to give FastComet a try. The SSD Cloud hosting is affordable and accessible. There are also data centers all over the world. The data center locations include Chicago, Dallas, London, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Tokyo, and Singapore. This is actually an above average number of data centers, which allows customers to choose the best location for their websites.

Many Hosting Options

When I decided to sign up for FastComet, I was impressed with the hosting options. The options are:

Sharing Hosting

Shared hosting starts out as low as $3.95/mo. Traffic is unlimited on all plans, and you are allowed a high number of visitors each month. You get free domain registration for life, free domain transfer, custom optimized server setup, and much more. You can transfer websites, and the level of security for every plan is very high. You get everything from a network firewall to daily backups

Fully Managed SSD Cloud VPS Hosting

Fully managed SSD cloud VPS hosting comes in 4 plans. You get more SSD space, bandwidth, and monthly visitors than with shared hosting. SSD cloud VPS hosting works well for those who are more experienced and need more computing power.

Fully Managed Dedicated Servers

I really like the dedicated server plans and features. The dedicated hosting is fully managed and cPanel powered. You get HDD and SSD storage, and hosting pros get full root access. Even scalability is simple. These plans are a bit pricier, but they have everything you need for large internet operations. These are powerful Intel Xeon servers that can handle heavy traffic and demands.

WordPress Hosting

WordPress fans will really like the affordable WordPress hosting plans starting at $3.95/mo. Your WordPress website with FastComet is hosted on SSD-only cloud hosting. Giving you up to 300% performance boost.

All WordPress hosting plans come with free CloudFlare CDN. Your WordPress content will distribute closer to your visitors. Thus, can speed up your website.

FastComet Compare
FastComet WordPress hosting speed comparison.

The higher the WordPress hosting plan, the more features you get. The features and security are very similar to those outlined in the shared hosting plans. You have everything you need to get started plus a free domain for life.

These are highly competitive plans that I really like.

FastComet has gone all out with features, security, and capability. What you choose depends on the computing power you need. For instance, a large company that will receive a lot of website traffic isn’t going to mesh well with a shared hosting plan, but a dedicated server has everything.

Important To Know

Resource Quotas

To make sure every users have access to given CPU and RAM, FastComet implement resources quotas on shared hosting plans.

For example, the limitation on StartSmart plan:

  • Concurrent connection: 20
  • Number of processes: 40
  • Script executions: 1K/hour, 10K/day, 300K/month
  • Average script execution time: 2
  • Average daily CPU utilization: 40%
  • Inodes: 250K
  • Minimum cron job interval: 30mins

What I Like about FastComet

I like the hosting options, but I also like that you get:

Money Back Guarantee

You get a 45-day money back guarantee on shared hosting plans. No cancellation fees involve. You also enjoy the same renewal price each month. No sneaky surprise.

Unlike other web hosts where the renewal price is much higher compare to initial signup price. FastComet is practicing the flat renewal price.

Global Data Centers

FastComet have 7 strategically located data centers worldwide, across 3 different continents. You can choose the server location near to you and your visitors. This is to make sure the best loading time and greater performance for your website.
