I got a Web Hosting cPanel account from them in November 2018 and my server root folder was hacked with JungleSec Ransomware Virus February 2019 that totally wipeout all my client websites. I've requested for data restoration but ...Read Morethey are unable to do so because my account was created too recently and is not in their backup servers. Totally unsecured and vulnerable hosting server is truly a NIGHTMARE unbearable experience!Less

Bunch of scammers

1.0
Folks at iFastnet are nothing but a bunch of scammers. They have this service called 'Byethost' where they offer so-called "Free Hosting" to website owners. I tried that service and turns out that they suspend your account within ...Read Morea few months and then force you to update to premium hosting, this premium hosting is powered by iFastNet. Not just that, they'll also redirect your whole site to iFastNet's homepage. Basically, your site will work as an affiliate advertiser for iFastNet.
They then get to keep your files, your whole data and revoke your FTP access. Which is a gross violation of the new GDPR terms (and I'll make sure to report them to ICO for the violations). Their direct upgrade plans are at least 3 times more costlier than any other web host. Not just that but they have a dead customer support staff and upgrading takes weeks to be approved.
And did I mentioned that they also inject ransomware to your data and a number of their IPs/DNS' are blacklisted by many web indexers? If you have a site hosted with iFastNet and are trying to build up the SEO than good luck!

I think you should take a course on technology usage before you write such a blatantly stupid review.

I talked with them and they say "trying to vps is waste of time" to build on their vps. They say vpn needs too much ram. But hey i already build and use vps server on another server have half of specs than ifastnet...

Ifastnet will try to bill you for the rest of your life

Long after I've canceled Services they continue to send me invoices. I've cancelled the credit card I hold with them. But they refuse to cancel my service officially. And they're running up the bill I supposedly owe year after year.

I agree. I have been sending emails for over a year now trying to cancel, there is no support email address and they ignore emails sent to sales, and if you forward one of the invoices they send back and automated message for you...Read More to contact support. Duh! The problem is that you have to re-register to log into support..and frankly I am not going to do that.

I am user of ifast.net starting 2012. I ahve Premium plan with free domain. Before all was ok, but two years ago I have paid twice for my yearly renew because I paid once manually and there were autopayment scheduled in my paypal....Read More So I asked them to send one payment back, after some time they sent it back and downed my website because "it was not payed". So I paid again to get my website working. I did not noticed about that because I thought that it is my mistake and mistake of Paypal. Anyway in 2016 my website was crashed again because they got issue with SQL access. I sent ticket to them asking what is going on but they answered only on next day when all worked again that " all is ok, why do you complaint?". I missed this too. But in last Saturday they sent me invoice to pay next yearly payment and I tried to pay it but my bank locked two transactions as untrusted and I musted to reactivate my bank account and wait till Monday. However already in Monday ifast.net downed my website. So they gave me only 1 whole day (Sunday!) to pay this invoice. Never mind. I paid in Monday afternoon this invoice and opened ticket in support asking to renew my hosting and domain. Up to date (Tuesday evening) my website doen't work and nobody even want to answer when it will work and why it does't work. I tried to send complaint in their official e-mails, but as a result I have received e-mail that "We have now processed your abuse complaint regarding the domain phytomorphology.org phytomorphology.org has now been suspended pending a complete investigation." They even did not read my message and decided that I abuse about my website. Great job! So my website was terminated without any work and reason.
I opened several new tickets asking for this situation, but first they just told that it is duplicated ticked and nothing telling about whn my website will work. Later they even did not response on my tickets.
So stay away from this "supreme" hoster. They are nothing more than swindlers getting your money superfast and newer supporting you. I could change my host, however I even can not make a backup of my website and SQL. Moreover, the domain name was provided for free by ifast.net and I am afraid if I will change the host, I will lost domain which is very important for me - because it is listed in so much databases.

Uptime & Reliability

Very Reliable Hosting

You'll get a 99.9% uptime guarantee for the network, but the chances are that you'll never need to use it.  They use high quality hardware and operate out of great data centers that will most likely not have any incidents that cause down time.  In addition, the RAID configuration of their hard drives will make it even less likely that there will be any type of outage.  If you're not happy with the stability of the hosting, or anything else, you can also take advantage of their 7 day money back guarantee.

Feattures

Easy to Understand Feature List

When you look through the different options this company has to offer you'll quickly see that they do a good job at laying everything out so even people without a lot of experience can figure everything out.  Most of the basic hosting packages are available right on their front page so you can see what htey have to offer at just a glance.  The shared hosting starts with unlimited disk space and a high amount of data transfer (250 gigs).  They also allow up to 6 free domains included with the package.  You can move up to higher level hosting from there that includes affordable VPS options and dedicated servers too.  They have RAID configuration on all their hard drives, which can help ensure your site is more stable.

The sites are on cPanel, which is the most popular and in-demand control panel option.  They also offer Apache web options to help make the entire experience easier for everyone.  They do a lot to improve the overall security of your sites too, which is very nice and very important in today's online world where hacks and other digital attacks are becoming very popular.

Support

Skilled Tech Support - Limited Contact Options

The tech support with this company is available 24/7 but it looks like you really have to use their ticketing system.  They have a live chat option, but that is only for sales.  They also have a knowledge base that has some useful information in it, but it would be better if it were more filled out and covered more areas of hosting that people would be actually interested in.

Prices

Reasonable Prices

There are a lot of price options to choose from starting at just $3.99 per month.  The VPS packages start at just $9.99 per month took, which is well below the averages for other companies. Dedicated servers start out at $149.99, but you get a lot for the price.  Of course, all the different hosting categories have a number of different options within them, which will change the price.  No matter what you choose, however, the prices remain quite reasonable.

Summary

Overall nice Hosting Option

The hosting with this company is very good.  They have been serving their customers for quite a while and everything I can find points to the fact that they have a good overall service.  They have plenty of options to choose from, but not so many that it becomes confusing. The prices are also very reasonable in all areas and they have a very reliable hosting system in place.

Pros:

  • Very Reliable
  • 7 Day Money Back Guarantee
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee

Cons:

  • Limited Tech Support Options
