Shared Hosting Overview
FastComet offers three different Shared Hosting packages called FastCloud, FastCloud Plus and FastCloud Extra. For the most part, FastCloud and FastCloud Plus are the same though you benefit from unlimited websites and additional resources. Their FastCloud Plus package is an entirely different platform featuring LiteSpeed Web Server, significantly more resources as well as numerous performance driving tools such as Memcached and Varnish.
Each Shared Hosting plan comes standard with:
- cPanel Control Panel
- Softaculous 1-click script installer (Supporting WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and over 400 more)
- 24/7 Support (Live Chat, Email & Tickets)
- 45 Day Money Back Guarantee
- Free Website Migration
- Free Domain Transfer (+ 1 year added to the domain expiration date)
- Daily Backups
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- Advanced tutorial series for numerous software platforms
FastCloud is FastComet's entry-level plan priced at $3.48/mo. If your end goal is to create one basic website which doesn't receive a significant amount of traffic then this plan is the perfect fit for you. This plan comes standard with all of the web essentials including but not limited to email accounts, MySQL Databases, Backups and 24/7/375 support.
If you want to host multiple websites, or need a little extra disk space, or just want additional resources should your website need it then FastCloud Plus is an excellent choice. Starting as low as $5.28/mo the FastCloud Plus plan still comes in less than a cup of coffee. Sporting a significant 4 vCPUs and 3 GB of RAM your website will surely have the resources it needs to handle those occasional traffic spikes.
FastComet's FastCloud Extra plan is their most premium shared hosting package starting at $6.98/mo (which it still very competitive. With the Extra plan you will benefit from numerous performance enhancing software including LiteSpeed Web Server, Memcached, Varnish and more.
If you are after maximum performance, or just have a high traffic website then the only place to look is at the FastCloud Extra plan.
45 Day Money Back Guarantee
FastComet offers a longer than standard money back guarantee coming in at 45 days. Quite simply, if you are unhappy with any aspect of the hosting service FastComet provides you can request a full refund with no questions asked during your first 45 days since signing up.
Monthly Billing Cycle (No Setup Fees)
We see it time and time again. Web hosting companies promoting a monthly billing cycle while only telling you in the checkout page about a setup fee or the fact discounts do not apply. Well, that is not the case with FastComet! The price you see on their website is the price you pay for any and all billing cycles, from 1 month all the way up to 3 years.
cPanel Control Panel
We can praise any web hosting company still using cPanel as their primary control panel. With the recent cPanel price increase many companies have jumped to alternative (cheaper) control panels which shows who has priced themselves to low vs those who have built a real, sustainable business.
With cPanel being the industry standard, there is a good chance you have used cPanel if you have ever signed up for web hosting before. Therefore you should easily be accustomed to the control panel offered by FastComet without a significant learning curve.
Daily & Weekly Backups
FastComet performs backups on a daily and weekly basis. Everything from your website files, databases, email accounts and emails are backed up to an offsite seperate storage facility. These backups are accessible within teh cPanel control panel enabling you to restore your website without the need to contact their support team.
Note: While FastComet provides backups, we highly recommend maintaining a backup policy of your own website regardless of where you host.
