Forgive me for going overboard, but the name of something tells a lot. Why not the same case in FastComet web host? Let’s get to it and see if the name says it all, or it is just a name with no meaning.
FastComet Web Hosting history and services
In 2013 FastComet web host joined other web hosters to offer similar services, but with them came quality for your money, and honesty on the services they offer. Unlike other web hosts that promise you the moon, but you do not even get the clouds.

Pros & Cons of Using Fastcomet Hosting
FastComet Web Hosting Add-ons
The Web host has a few add-ons. They include:
- Domain privacy costs 9.95 USD per year. It protects your info from spam and junk bots. Also, shields it from been accessed publicly.
- Google sitemap: A sitemap of XML is submitted to search engines like Bing, Yahoo, and Google so that your traffic can locate your site and pursue it with ease. Its cost is 14.95 USD one-time payment.
- An SEO audit: It shows you what to do, add or reduce to make your website SEO friendly i.e. improve its ranking & visibility by the use of SEO signal(s). The cost is 9.95 USD, a one-time fee.
SES: Search Engine Submission i.e. paying a one-time fee of 5.95 USD fee to submit your website to search engines like google. It will increase your chances of gaining more traffic for your site.
These add-ons are important depending on what you want. For example, SEO and SES are crucial to raising your website traffic. Remember the more traffic, the more money.
I have used the SE submission and the Google site maps and experienced a slight up sale.
The good thing about these add-ons is that they are optional, and the Web Host will work just fine without them.
FastComet Web hosting support
Their support system is divided in:
- Online chats
- Phone calls
All of these are 24/7 based support. If you miss one the other is available.
For online chats, if they are online accept your feedback in a matter of seconds. If they are offline, you will still get your reply when they get back. They have numerous chat agents, thus you do not have to worry. Any questions, clarification, or help will be guaranteed in due time.
Their email is on point. I once emailed them, but I guess my question was not clear so the respondent asked for my number and made a follow-up till I was satisfied.
Phone calls are always picked, and you get to choose the kind of help you want, and you are connected to the best person to help you.
FastComet Prices, Hosting Plans:
FastComet Web Host has three boxes, namely:
FastCloud allows only one site, but the other two FastCloud plus and extra allows you to open multiple websites in your domain.
FastCloud has a 15 GB SSD storage, FasCloud plus has 25 GB while the extra has 35GB of storage. If you want more space, or want to create more sites in the future the plus and extra will work best. However, the three packages share some features like free website and domain transfer, Cpanel, and the softaculous.
Other packages include the add-ons.
Would I recommend FastComet? Definitely. The Web Host has so many pros. Why not enjoy them? The best of all is the 45-day money-back guarantee.If you are not sure for some reason, purchase any of their plans and try it out. In 45 days you will have a decision. And by the way, this is not one of those advertising sweeteners. They do return your money.When I decided to try them out, I bought a one-month plan, and on my 25th day, I still had no dislikes. So, I requested for money back and it was returned. Reason? I decided to buy a yearly plan.
Try it out. No regrets
