The domain privacy applies to MOST hosts now. It is not a domain cost, but a security cost.
FastComet
Dear Nicola Foster,

Those are some valid concerns we can definitely understand.

Quality Hosting Provider

FastComet is an experienced web-based hosting company, which was established in San Francisco. It offers all types of high quality hosting solutions, from shared hosting and dedicated servers to domain management systems. For a little less than a decade now, FastComet has proven to be a decent competitor and one of the most trustworthy companies in the business, with many satisfied customers, both private and public.
With servers in the United States, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Germany, Japan, and Singapore they are nicely covered, and compared to just a few years ago, FastComet is showing a lot of improvements as well.

Uptime & Reliability

9.5

Stable Hosting & 99.9% Uptime Guarantee

Like many other providers, FastComet promises excellent performance and uninterrupted uptime for your website. And fortunately, after running the needed tests, this turned out to be true. While the speed eventually got a bit slower over time, which is far from perfect, there were no other noticeable problems. FastComet’s server didn’t fall, not even once, and this is not something that you see very often.
The good results are backed up with their 24/7 human monitoring, to improve performance and make sure they prevent any possible technical issues from happening. Their developers’ team perform daily and weekly backups on secure servers in order to enhance security and privacy.
So in terms of reliability, the overall performance is satisfying. In case of an unexpected problem, with FastComet you can restore everything from a point-in-time recovery snapshot, an option for which you don’t have to pay.

Lots of Services

Unique, satisfying and interesting. This is how the features of FastComet can and should be described. As was mentioned before, they have servers in 7 locations around the world, providing them with a full coverage and a rich customers’ base with clients from 70 countries worldwide. And, considering everything, this comes as no surprise. The provider is going global, and FastComet might come close to being one of the most popular and most used hosting companies in the industry.
You can choose between web hosting, cloud VPS hosting, dedicated server, and open-source hosting. Depending on how much you are willing to pay, or the amount of space and storage you are looking for, you can simply choose one of their three website plans.
All plans include and support SSD storage, free CloudFlare CDN, SSL, Anti-Malware protection, unlimited email and FTP accounts, over 240 free website templates and free tutorials, cPanel, an auto installer, etc. If you combine all of this with their prices, it’s definitely a fair deal.
Needless to say, they get a 10/10.

Support

Fast Tech Support

If you are facing any kind of problems or have questions regarding FastComet, you can contact them in three ways: via phone, live chat, or tickets. However, their support is probably the one thing that won’t completely surpass your expectations.
Even though the service wasn’t top-notch, all three ways of communicating are quite helpful. The phone was primarily the best option, because you get to talk to an experienced technician, but unfortunately, it didn’t always work. If you decide on the ticket support system, you will wait no more than a half an hour. This is quite good and useful, even for emergencies, as their responses are always detailed, straight to the point and very helpful. The last option is the live chat. The good thing is that it works all the time, 24/7. The bad thing is that you won’t always get the answer you need. Even though the chat representatives respond almost immediately (at least at the beginning of the conversation), they are not that helpful simply because they lack proper knowledge.
Overall, if you need immediate help with something more complicated, try the phone or the ticketing service, and for simpler questions, the live chat is always at your service.

Competitive Hosting Plans

Needless to say, even though the prices have dropped over the years, FastComet is still not the cheapest web hosting provider. Although the prices they show listed on their three price plans are relatively low, when you continue with the payment you will see that for some options (the one-month subscription) you need to pay extra. Although this was disappointing it’s not something unusual, as you can see it in many other companies.
Their cheapest plan is the SmartPlan that costs $2.95 per month, but as expected it has the lowest set of features as well as the lowest SSD space of only 15GB. The second one is ScaleRight and it comes at the price of $5.95 per month. As it says on their website, it’s “the right solution that supports and drives your website growth”, as it offers more advanced features and 25GB space. The last one is SpeedUp. The price that you have to pay in order to get, not just advanced settings and more space, but a Rocket Booster as well, is just below $10 per month.
The best thing about FastComet is that in case you are not satisfied with their service, they also included a money-back guarantee, and it lasts 45 days no matter which price plan you choose.

Extremely Easy to Work With

Using FastComet can’t be simpler. They did an excellent job when it comes to simplicity. The panel is very easy to use, even for their users that are barely starting out. It’s understandable and easy to navigate, which is a great advantage.
Also, one of the better features of this web hosting provider is that, for a few years now, they have a fully responsive client area, meaning that they are mobile friendly. This means that you can run your website even from your mobile phone.

Summary

Good Hosting

All in all, if you are looking for a decent and trustworthy web hosting company, this is the right choice for you. It showed an amazing performance, it has many features and it’s easy to navigate. With a few adjustments in terms of price or customer service, FastComet can rise high in this industry and compete with the best players in the game. For now, it might be just what you needed.

Pros:

  • 24/7 Tech Support
  • 99.98% Uptime Guarantee
  • 45 Day Money Back Guarantee
  • Extensive Self-Help Information

Cons:

  • $19.95 Setup Fee for Monthly Accounts
