FastComet Review 2018

June 30, 2018 Internet Stuff

Great Pricing

FastComet offers 2 unlimited shared hosting plans. The $5.95/mo ScaleRight hosting plan include unlimited websites, 25GB SSD storage, and unmetered traffic. This package also comes with 3GB RAM, similar package from most providers would only give you 1GB RAM.

Awesome Support

Support is friendly and patient. I had a question about resource limits, and they replied in details within a short period of time, that’s pretty impressive.

Problem

So far so good. After using the service for a month, I only had one problem with cpanel access, that was resolved within few minutes.

Affiliate Program

They have a multi-tier affiliate program which works with shared hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated hosting. For example, Tier 1: 1-5 sales of shared hosting, you receive $50/sale. They also have an interesting referral program, if you refer more than 5 friends using shared hosting, you even get shared hosting for free forever.

Cancellation

There is a 45 Day Money Back. You can submit a cancellation request through the Client Area interface. I haven’t yet tried cancellation, so I have no idea when you will receive your refund. Actually, I requested an upgrade for my package, i.e. from ScaleRight to SpeedUp. It took an hour or two for the file transfer and domain propagation.

Locations

There are 8 locations to choose from: Chicago IL, Dallas TX, Newark NJ, London UK, Frankfurt DE, Amsterdam NL, Tokyo JP, and Singapore. I choose Chicago IL for my 1st package, and Newark NJ for my 2nd one. The one in Newark NJ is way less crowded. There are online tools to check how many domains are being hosted on a certain IP, so you just input your shared hosting IP, and you can tell how many neighbours you have.

Update: For some reason, not using this host now.
