Fastcomet is a leading web hosting service with a solid reputation for providing fast, efficient hosting. Armed with glowing user reviews, we evaluated FastComet over several months to see if its features and functionalities hold up under closer scrutiny.
Our tests revealed that Fastcomet offers user-friendly features and support along with budget-friendly prices and extensive server-side perks to create a superior hosting experience. The company also ranked high in terms of reliable uptimes and ultra-fast load times. With consistent speeds and a wide variety of developer tools, FastComet is a great choice of hosting to build your website.
In recent years, Fastcomet has drastically cut prices to stay competitive as the industry has become more affordable. As a result, the company’s hosting services are now well within the industry average, though not the cheapest available. Shared hosting plans start with StartSmart at $3.95 a month, and come with a single website, free domain registration for life and 15GB SSD storage.
This plan also lets you choose from several datacenters to minimize the distance between your servers and your audience to boost load times. You can also find StartSmart basic plans customized for WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart and SocialEngine Hosting plans, all starting at $3.95 monthly as well.
For users with heavier traffic and more specialized needs, FastComet offers Cloud VPS hosting and dedicated servers. Fastcomet cloud and dedicated solutions are on the more expensive end of the affordable. Cloud VPS hosting starts at $59.95 and includes ample disk space and bandwidth as well as Free Web & CSF Firewall. Dedicated servers start at $139 monthly and provide 80GB of SSD storage and unlimited websites hosted.
One thing that we especially appreciated about Fastcomet was its transparency: there are no underhanded fees. Renewals remain the same price as when you purchased the plan, you receive a free domain forever, and there’s a generous 45-day money-back guarantee.
While their Shared Hosting Plans have unmetered bandwidth – meaning they won’t charge you according to the amount of bandwidth that you have generated, bandwidth is not an infinite resource and they constantly monitor their shared servers for excessive use to ensure optimal performance for their customers.
Server Response Time
The average response time is only 0.92 seconds, but must clarify that it just about doubled after the first two months of testing. Initially, it was below 0.50s. Fastcomet backs up its nigh impeccable uptime with decent speed.

We found that Fastcomet customer support team delivers when it comes to response and resolution times. Although the service offers free phone, ticketing, and live chat support, the latter is staffed by friendly but not always tech-proficient team members, making live chat less of an effective support option. FastComet’s website claims that according to an internal survey of 10,000 customers they are able to resolve 93% of all reported issues in under 10 minutes. Barring several more complex issues, that was largely the amount of time it took to fix the problems we presented with.
In addition to their knowledgeable support team, Fastcomet virtual treasure trove of online videos provides clear instructions to help beginners and experts resolve issues on their own or prevent them from arising in the first place.
