​FastComet, ​one of the fastest growing hosting company has stunned me with their business policy and I was really impressed and tested them for Hostingstep visitors.

Check our FastComet Reviews and ​let your share your reviews at comments.

FastComet Reviews 2018

#1 FastComet Uptime - 99.97%

I kept monitoring FastComet demo site for every 60 seconds to check for downtime and you can check the historical uptime data below.

Historical FastComet Uptime

​FastComet uptime ranks #3 in our list only next to SiteGround(99.99%) and A2 Hosting(99.98%). 

The below server uptime is taken from another website which got hosted on FastComet singapore data center locations and to my surprise the server was up for more 330+ days with zero downtime.

#2 Good Response Time - 435ms

​Historical FastComet Response Time

​If you look into the above table, you can see FastComet response time were between 400-500ms mostly. However, recently the response time was getting lowered resulting in much more fast loading sites.

You can see the Jan. 2018 average response time is 287.22ms which is better than SiteGround's 366.94ms response time.

Currently, FastComet ranks #3 in our top web hosting list and if these trend continues ( less than 300ms response time) FastComet will surely reach #1 in our list.

#3 Good Customer Support ( ​5/5)

I love and at the same time, hate their support. The thing I love – The live chat is active 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year, but it's only for billing and general ​suport queries.

The thing I hate (not really) – For all technical queries, you need a raise a ticket, but most of the tickets are processed within ​5-10 minutes which is industry's best support response time. To check it, we raised a ticket and got a reply within minutes.

 If you're choosing a web hosting, then you should definitely look for customer support ticket and chat response time.

Their customer support people are real techies having absolute knowledge about most open source applications and they really helped me to install WordPress and SSL and essential plugins and also tweaked ​my website for performance improvements. I don't have any issues regarding their customer support.

Great insights of #FastComet hosting with historical uptime, response time and TTFB values.

#4 Free Domain Name Forever

Yes, you heard it right. None of the company so far have such an incredible offer. There are 10+ domain extension which includes .COM .ORG .NET  and country specific domain extensions for absolute free of cost.

How this works?

You can register a new domain name for free and they will keep on renewing it for you as long as you keep an active hosting account with them.

This is one hell of a offer you can get, just remember renewals for .COM costs $13.95 per year.

#5 Same Renewal Price 

No marketing Gimmicks. Pay $2.95/month for a plan and continue paying the same $2.95/month for lifetime. It won't increase to $9.95/month during renewals. How good it is when comes to savings?

That's what I told in the homepage of this site, "Love saving money more than anything? FastComet is the hosting you're looking for"

99.97% Uptime + less than 500 ms loading time + free domain name + same renewal price + 24/7/365 customer support. Do you need anything else from a hosting company? Get Started Now

#6 45 days money back guarantee 

FastComet offers 45 days money back guarantee on all shared hosting plans and you will get a full refund.

#7 ​Eight Datacenter locations (Most by Any)

You can be at any part of the world, FastComet is there for you to offer the best hosting experience and they have the most datacenter locations compared to other hosting companies. So I rated them 10/10

#8 Free Site Transfer

You can get free site transfer for all type of hosting plans be it Shared, VPS or dedicated hosting. I transferred one of my site in less than 8 hours, however if you have big websites it may take upto 24-48 hours.

#9 Free Email Hosting

It's becoming a trend, hosting companies stopped offering free email hosting for its clients. FastComet still offers Email hosting through cPanel.

The basic plan gets an 250MB mailbox size while the premium plan comes with 1GB Mailbox size.

#10 Bunch of Security Addon for Free.

I should really congratulate FastComet for partnering with multiple companies to offer secured hosting solution for such a nominal cost.

1. Let's Encrypt Free SSL : Most companies offer the same, so there is no special about it.

2. Free Globalsign SSL : I can see the company charges $69/year since it offers premium SSL solutions but comes free of cost along with FastComet on selected hosting plans.

3. SpamExperts: All the incoming and outgoing emails are filtered by SpamExperts, the leaders in email solutions. So most of the spam emails gets filtered even before reaching your inbox.

4. BitNinja: Its an all in one security suite to defend our websites which costs $5/month basically but with this company, you can get this for free, ofcourse.

5. JetBackUp: The company takes care of cPanel based backup solutions. While the cPanel's default backup solutions is not so reliable, the company integrated JetBackup which usually costs $3.95/per site on monthly basis.

Apart from it, there are few more premium tools added into their servers, but I think its enough to tell you how well they are an customer friendly company.

Demo Site Details

As for my testing parameter, I bought a hosting package and installed a demo site on their servers and started monitoring their services.

  • Site URL – http://hostingstep-fc.com
  • FC indicates FastComet
  • Domain and Hosting registered on Aug 2016.

Sign up process is simple. Only 3 screens to get started.  Customer UI and Cpanel images below. The Cpanel might look similar with the most hosting provider and the highlighted JetPack plugin is exclusive to FastComet customers which usually costs $ 9.95 per month for the single domain. The Customer portal UI looks promising giving us a quick navigation, easy to upgrade/downgrade accounts, support tickets.
