I have already recommended them. I had been with BlueHost (for hosting) and GoDaddy (for domains) and Fast Comet has really opened my eyes as to what I have been missing by not shopping around. Very happy I took the plunge

Expert Review

Aviran Zazon
Aviran Zazon
HostAdvice COO

Being a web hosting specialist, I’ve put FastComet through a series of tests, focusing mainly on the quality of their hosting services, plans, features, customer support, and the value for money that they provide. I’ll be sharing my honest thoughts with regards to FastComet’s hosting services in this review – a must-read for anyone thinking about getting web hosting from FastComet.

Established in 2013, FastComet is a relatively new web hosting company but it has grown immensely over the past years. They’re currently running 11 datacenters around the globe and have a team of 100+ employees. The company is majorly focused on providing fast and secure hosting to small and mid-sized businesses. Owing to their latest server hardware and the use of industry-leading software, FastComet really justifies its name with notably fast performance.

FastComet has been awarded with 4.9 stars out of 5 on Trustpilot, with 2339 FastComet customer reviews (93% of which have 5-star ratings).

 

Pros and Cons

Pros of FastComet hosting:

  • Pricing is really affordable for all plans
  • They Provide SSD only servers
  • 11 different server locations globally
  • Instant chat response 24/7/265
  • Offering free daily backups with all plans
  • Free site and domain migration is also provided
  • Offering Cloudflare CDN solutions
  • Free SSL certificate with all plans

Cons of FastComet hosting:

  • No free domain with any hosting plan
  • They have high renewal prices
  • Sometimes their uptime goes below the usual 99.9%

If you’re looking for a web host that provides a really fast and secure web hosting service, FastComet could be your go-to choice!

Tip: To let your customers experience a blazing-fast response time, select a server located near to wherever your target audience is. FastComet has 11 server locations globally.

 

Rating Breakdown

In my FastComet review, I’ve rated their services and hosting features while following a rating methodology that we’ve created at HostAdvice.

ParameterRating ScoreWhy We Gave This Score?
Pricing5/5In comparison to their competitors, FastComet hosting plans are quite affordable, starting from $ 2.49/month. Plus, they offer a 45 days money back guarantee!
Features9.6They offer all the necessary features, including free website builder, free website transfer, free SSL, cPanel and Softaculous, daily backups and more. But I’ve rated them 4.8 because they don’t offer a free domain.
Performance9They provide the standard 99.9% uptime guarantee and the uptime I tracked was 99.93%. Overall, their hosting is reasonably fast and reliable, but I’ve given them 4.5 rating because the uptime sometimes dips below the usual 99.9%.
Ease of Use9.4The process of creating and activating my account was quite easy. They provide cPanel, WHM and Softaculous control panels. But I rated them 4.7 because finding a few details, such as their name servers, was somewhat time consuming.
Support10Their support is really incredible and very helpful. I especially loved their live chat support where their team provides instant replies and they won’t leave the chat until you do.

 

FastComet Prices and Plans – 2023

FastComet offers a wide range of affordable hosting plans, including Cloud shared hosting, Cloud VPS hosting and dedicated CPU servers. They also have special hosting plans designed to support various platforms, such as WordPress Hosting, WooCommerce Hosting, Magento Hosting and OpenCart Hosting. They provide SSD only servers with all their web hosting plans that are fully managed. Their smallest cloud shared hosting plan is priced at $ 2.49/mo and has 15GB SSD disk space, whereas the biggest dedicated hosting plan is for $ 244.30/mo with 640GB SSD disk space.

FastComet Shared Hosting Plans

When I started with my FastComet review, their shared hosting plans were the first thing I checked out. The host offers three plans in this category, namely FastCloud priced at $ 2.49/mo, FastCloud Plus for $3.74/mo and the biggest shared hosting plan FastCloud Extra for $ 4.99/mo.

PlanPricing
FastCloud$ 2.49 /mo
FastCloud Plus$ 3.74 /mo
FastCloud Extra$ 4.99 /mo

The standard shared web hosting plans offered by FastComet are good for small businesses and entrepreneurs. If you’ve just built a website and don’t expect too much traffic, their startup plan FastCloud would be perfect for you. In case the traffic to your site increases, you can always upgrade your plan in the future.

Tip: Before you purchase a shared hosting plan, take into account the size of your website in order to clearly determine the features and resources that you would be needing. Overall, these plans by FastComet offer enough resources for a small business website.

FastComet Cloud VPS Hosting Plans

Currently, four plans are being offered by FastComet in their Cloud VPS hosting category. Their most basic VPS hosting plan is named Cloud 1 and it comes with 50 GB SSD disk space for $ 23.98/mo. The Cloud 2, Cloud 3 and Cloud 4 plans are priced at $ 27.98/mo, $ 35.98/mo and $ 55.98/mo respectively.

PlanPricing
Cloud 1$ 23.98 /mo
Cloud 2$ 27.98 /mo
Cloud 3$ 35.98 /mo
Cloud 4$ 55.98 /mo

I’d recommend their Cloud VPS hosting to anyone having a small to mid-sized business with a busy website or an e-commerce store that attracts high web traffic. These plans would also be perfect for you if you’re an active entrepreneur with a business website that requires fast uninterrupted performance for converting web visitors into buyers. You can host unlimited websites on their Cloud 2 plan that comes with dual-core 2.5GHz CPU, 80 GB SSD disk space and 4 GB ECC RAM.

Tip: If you want the best performance for your website, the rule of thumb is to choose a server located near to where your target audience is. This way, the communication between your web server and your customers’ browsers would be blazing-fast.

FastComet Dedicated CPU Servers

The company offers four high-performance web hosting solutions in the form of dedicated CPU servers. Their most basic dedicated hosting plan DS 1 is for $ 97.30/mo with 4 GB RAM and 80 GB disk space. The DS 2 is priced at $ 118.30/mo with 160 GB SSD space, whereas the DS 3 and DS 4 are for $ 160.30/mo and $ 244.30/mo respectively.

PlanPricing
DS 1$ 97.30 /mo
DS 2$ 118.30 /mo
DS 3$ 160.30 /mo
DS 4$ 244.30 /mo

If you want dedicated server resources to run the website/s of a regional business, or if you have a popular e-commerce store and can’t compromise on its performance even during the high web traffic days, I’d recommend you any one of their DS 2 or DS 3 plans. That’s because both these plans come with amazing dedicated server features, and are e-commerce optimized as well.

Tip: Your server hardware is tantamount to the overall performance and reliability of your website. You can easily ask your hosting provider to set up the most apt hardware in a way that enhances your server’s performance capabilities without any extra cost.

 

Features

I knew that my FastComet review couldn’t be complete without listing down all the features that come with their web hosting plans. Here’s the list of the basic main features:

  1. cPanel and Softaculous control panels
  2. Daily backups
  3. Free Cloudflare CDN
  4. Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
  5. BitNinja server security
  6. Free website and domain transfer
  7. Unlimited FTP accounts
  8. Unlimited databases
  9. Unlimited sub-domains
  10. Multiple PHP versions
  11. 1-click WordPress install
  12. Free app installs and upgrade
  13. Unlimited email accounts
  14. 24/7/365 customer support
  15. Custom optimized server setup
  16. SSD only servers

Apart from these, FastComet also provides their customers with various other hosting features that aren’t offered by many of their competitors. These include Web Application Firewall, Network Firewall, CageFD security, Imunify360 server security, Brute-force protection, asynchronous resource loading, LiteSpeed cache, lossless data compression and browser optimization. As per various customers’ FastComet reviews and from my own experience, these features are really helpful in making their hosting faster and highly-secure.

Plus, they’re also offering a free drag-and-drop website builder with 350+ free templates.

 

Performance

When it comes to server speed, uptime, and the loading time of my website when hosted with FastComet, I was quite literally happy with the performance overall. Initially, I felt that the speed and loading time was just up to the mark and not extraordinary, but after my website was optimized for better performance by FastComet’s support team, the results amazed me. Plus, they do carry through with their claim of 99.9% uptime, which is great since they’re one of the very few affordable hosting providers with locations in India, East Asia and Oceania.

 

Level of Support

If I had to give a one word FastComet brand review with regards to their customer support, it would be “incredible”! They provide 24/7/365 customer support over phone, live chat, tickets and email. Apart from this they also have various knowledgebase articles and helpful technical tutorials published on their site.

I contacted them various times through live chat, and each time the response was literally instant. The team answers each question in detail and would stay in contact until the issue is completely resolved. They actually go an extra mile to serve their clients when it comes to customer support.

Here’s their response to a sales related query that I had:

One thing that I really loved about their support team was that they don’t leave the chat unless you do.

 

Ease of Use

FastComet offers their clients with cPanel, Softaculous and WHM control panels. Alongside these, their own admin panel is really easy to navigate with a simple design and a satisfactory UX.

Registration

The process of creating an account with FastComet was really quick and hassle-free. You only have to choose whichever hosting plan you want to purchase, and once the payment is made your account is automatically activated. In case you encounter any issue during this process, a support agent would guide you through it via a phone call, live chat or email.

FastComet Control Panel

FastComet’s own admin panel is quite decent with all the functions aligned neatly on the left. Overall, you can easily navigate through its user interface without feeling lost. You can manage your account, your services and your domains from here, while being able to contact customer support and monitor your resource usage as well. This is what their admin panel looks like:

Apart from this, they offer cPanel, WHM and Softaculous control panels with their hosting plans that are all incredibly easy-to-use, mobile friendly and come with numerous helpful tools.

Installing WordPress on FastComet

When it comes to installing WordPress on your FastComet account, the process is incredibly simple since FastComet provides Softaculous and cPanel control panels.

Personally, I feel that the easiest way to install WordPress is through Softaculous. For this, I simply went to the installation page in Softaculous and clicked on “Softaculous Apps Installer”.

Final: Fastcomet_Reviews_by_Customers_and_Web_Hosting_Experts

From here, I installed WordPress using the “Quick Install” option.

Add an Email Account with FastComet

I used cPanel to create an email account and it didn’t take more than a few minutes.

After logging in to my cPanel account and clicking on the “Email Accounts” option on the dashboard, I simply clicked on the “create” button and created the new email account.

Conclusion: Do We Recommend FastComet?

Yes!

After conducting a detailed FastComet expert review, I’d definitely recommend their services to those who wish to host their website on a server located in India, Japan, Singapore or Australia and don’t want to pick a local hosting company from these countries.

From my experience, I believe they’re the only good web host offering server locations in India and East Asia at affordable price rates. They also let you pick a server location yourself even if you’re buying their most basic hosting plan.

Plus, I totally loved their support! The team was efficient, gave instant replies, and they did not leave the chat even after my query had been resolved.

They also fulfill their claims when it comes to server uptime and speed, I did not experience any delays or downtime throughout my experience.

Lastly, they’re offering a 45-days money back guarantee, so it’s a win-win situation overall.
