FastComet Review

FastComet Review Summary

Having launched in 2013 and with a young team at its helm, FastComet is relatively untried in the market. However, their newer infrastructure and embrace of the Cloud has resulted in strong performance for reasonable prices.

Editor's Review & Recommendation

FastComet is not just young at heart but is quite new to the industry, having been around only a few years. Their entire team from management to foot soldier is generally young and of its digital generation - which is good for them since it seems to have resulted in an overall solid product offering across lines.

This host offers Cloud-based solutions on cutting-edge infrastructure which means they are able to fulfill the needs of customers around the globe, especially those that have region-specific customer needs. They offer a good spread of 10 server locations worldwide. Best of all, they haven't cut costs and give new users much of what other hosts offer.

Unfortunately, the worst thing a company can do is to break its promise to customers. This often results in a black mark against them that will stain their reputation for a long time. FastComet did exactly that and in one of the worse areas possible, in pricing. Despite breaking a price lock guarantee, FastComet now charges a hefty price hike upon any subscription renewals which resulted in a host of angry customers.

While this price hike practice may be common, it is uncommon to see a vendor raise it as much as FastComet has done - by more than 100%. As if breaking a price guarantee wasn't bad enough, FastComet also decided to cancel free trial services and discontinued Free For Life Domain promotion.

If they can get past that, this host is overall pretty good and suitable for a whole range of needs. Basing themselves on Cloud technology means that they will be able to scale plans with relative ease and also bodes well for customers who need the extra power. If you combine that power with the dedicated support they offer you get a strong case for using FastComet.
