hi there this is Ed Herzog and welcome to my review of fast comic web hosting this is a first in a series of about three videos that I'm going to do on fast comment this is obviously my review video on fast comment I'm then gonna do a video where I talk about the differences in similarities between fast comet and SiteGround and why chose a switch from SiteGround too fast comet and finally gonna do a video where I show you my website speed test using fast comet as my host so you can see how quickly my websites load so in this video what I want to cover so I'll cover first my own experience as a fast comet customer I've been with them for about 7 months now starting in April of 2019 secondly I want to show you other reviews of fast comment not just my own experience I want you to see what other people have to say about fast comet then I didn't want to give you an overview of the features of fast comet just a little inside look at their cPanel and then finally I want to show you the plans and the pricing options that are available for fast comet ok so before I get into my review I do want to say one very important thing in August or September of 2019 fast comet made some pretty major changes in terms of their features and our pricing so if you see any reviews whether it's a video review or a blog post review that are before about August or September of 2019 ignore them they're not going to be accurate anymore so as I'm recording this video it's November of 2019 what I'm about to tell you is accurate again things can change in the future obviously but as of this moment this is accurate information I'm going to share with you ok I also want to let you know before I get into my review that I do work as an affiliate for fast comet so I will put my link my affiliate link in the description of this video if you choose to buy fast comment using my affiliate link I will receive a small commission ok I do that because they believe in fast comments so I guess now I'm getting into my review and talking about my experience with fast comet I am a believer in fast I 100% satisfied let me talk though first about the importance of website hosting you know I see every once in a while you know in a Facebook group some you know will ask for recommendation for free web site hosting and you know my reaction is always do not do that your website hosting is so important it's so critical to success to the success of your business you know your website hosting is basically in many ways it's the backbone of your website your website speed you know it's tied directly to your website host there are other factors of course but if you're if you're using a free website hosting for using a really crappy website host you're almost guaranteed to have slow website loading speed time secondly you know if you're using a free or again a what I would call crappy website host it's not going to be reliable your website is going to be down a lot your customers or your website visitors are going to come to your website and they're going to get error messages you know your page isn't going to load they're gonna leave and they're never going to come back and finally you know there's a third important component of website hosting which is customer support you know if you do have a problem with your website you want to have quality customer support that can back you up okay now you know there are other factors you can look at with the website hope signal of course but really to me those are the three critical components speed reliability and customer support and in my opinion fast comment does an excellent job in all three of those now as I said I'm going to show you in a separate video why what my website speed load times but I have two main websites hosted on on fast comment one of them which is a fairly bare-bones website it's actually for my wife's business it loads in about half a second okay again this is a fairly bare-bones website but I think most people think 99.99999% people would be excited ecstatic about half a second load time that's pretty amazing right my website which is my name at Herzog comm and it's a bit more resource intensive but even then it loads generally and about one and a half seconds again that's in excellent website loading time you know people come to my website or in Iowa twice a website and they don't have to wait the website loads almost immediately and I you know again there are many factors that go into website speed it's not just hosting but hosting is kind of the backbone of that if you don't have that have the quality website hosting then it's really hard to get good website speed times okay so the second factor I mentioned is reliability now obviously I can't watch on my website 24 hours a day seven days a week what I can tell you is I've never seen my website or my wife's website being down you know every time I visited they've been up and I can also show you that you know there are other sites that do these kind of tests and and monitor up website up times for various website website hosts and they report ninety-nine point eight or 99.9% uptime for fast commet again that's pretty excellent you know it's hard to get I don't know that any host is at 100% you know ninety nine point eight to ninety nine point nine is about as good as it gets and fast comet is white there and then finally uh customer support now again I'm happy with with fast comment I really need to contact customer support the few times I have they've been four very minor issues and they've all been resolved within a couple minutes on now you may you know a lot of people talk about site ground and site grounds customer support and site grounds customer support is excellent absolutely and one of the features of that is that they have live chat well guess what Vasko it also has live chat they can't you know that and they do give you options right so they've got the live chat they've got a ticket systems we prefer to use that where you're kind of going back and forth via email I believe they also give you a phone number you can call but you know they clearly have very good customer support and I'll show you again in a minute reviews of other people that talk about the quality of the customer support for fast comic again though you know the goal is not to have to contact your hosting company very often you know again I think of it this way you really want to have a a website host that you never think about that you kind of forget is there it's you know it's in the background you don't have to worry about it you can sleep well at night knowing that everything is taken care of and that's how I feel with half-assed comment I don't have to worry about my website speed I don't have to worry about you know the real liability whether or not my website is working whether or not it's up or down I don't have to worry about you know if I've got an issue will be resolved will be resolved quickly again in my opinion and my experience fast comment very easily passes those three tests you know those again for me are the critical tests of a website hosting company ok so that's my review that's my experience and I want to show you what other people say about fast comment so you know it's not just me saying this so first let me actually switch over here and show you my screen here we are on host advice ok see fast comet they got 768 reviews although I'm actually only thing 760 s 768 so 749 people gave them a thumbs up and only 19 a thumbs down now obviously you know you're always going to have some people have a negative experience your night no product no service whether it's hosting or anything else is ever going to be at 100% but you know that's a pretty that's almost 800 people almost all of them are positive about fast comment and you see here there overall rating 9.6 includes the reliability of nine point seven a pricing of nine point five user friendly nine point seven support nine point seven and features nine point six again that's coming off of these 768 people all these users saying that fast comment is excellent all these different factors all these different features so again it's not just me you can see right here on host advice website what they're saying and you see here you know superb service fast communist synonym of excellence great support at fast comment excellent service highly recommended outstanding technical support service etc etc etc they also have this you know they have somebody do an expert review right here their own review and we look at that um one of the things again here he talks about this is what I mentioned right here fast comet promises solid 99.9 percent up times after months of testing we discovered the fast comet surpasses its guarantee although they're saying the same percent averaging 99.9 percent up times with very few service disruptions so they tested it out and they did find 99.9 percent up times okay confirming what I said my own personal experience that I've never seen my site on our wife's website being down they also mention here at fast comment boast an average speed of 395 milliseconds and through their own testing they found 405 milliseconds again that's going to be based on a very bare-bones website you know most of us are going to have a lot more on our website but at least shows you in the background you know what the potential is of fast comet depending on what all you put on your website how you optimize things you know you can get very fast website loading times using fast comet as I mentioned my wife's website loads in about half a second so very Compal is 405 milliseconds ok here actually I'll just show you here they've got you know again misses coming from host advice I've got Awards such as best customer service 20 19 best shared host 20 19 an excellent service award these are their top choice award and a great support award so you know some awards they've been given I believe by host advice themselves I believe that's where these awards come from you come up come over here on Trustpilot again you got 726 reviews 92% are excellent 2% great 1% poor 6% bad now again I want to you know again 90 to 94 percent people are 94 percent other people are saying excellent or great now you do see 6% bad you know it's weird there's almost nothing in between it's either excellent or bad then we all know that people tend to put negative reviews more than you do positive so I you know that 6% bad doesn't really concern me and just looking at a couple those myself it's often you know somebody has a very minor issue and then of giving a bad review and so you know you have to take something's with a grain of salt you know as I mentioned no business is ever going to get 100% of anything and as you take a look again if you take a look at something like psych ground which is far better known than then fast commet you're gonna see a very similar pattern in terms of reviews 94% excellent and then got 1% in great average and poor and 4% bad so again the reviews that you're seeing on Fast comment are almost exactly 1% comparable to what you're getting for a much better known service and a slightly moving more expensive service with SiteGround so again it's not just me saying it fast comment as an excellent web host provider you're seeing it from other people so that's the review portion my review review a review by other people so what are some of the features of fast comment so here we are on their website we scroll down first of all they give you a free domain transfer and they say no transfer fees we will renew your domain for one year free of charge SSD clout only cloud up to 300% faster access to your files and database compared to non SSD hosting providers get a free cloud player CDN as I mentioned is powered by cPanel get daily and weekly backups again the free 24/7 support free manage migration so they'll move your website from one host to another which is they did that for me they did it within a couple minutes it was all up and done and ready it was outstanding service now they'll also have one in a percent satisfaction or money-back guarantee it's 45 days for the cloud shirt hosting it's seven days for VPS d/s servers that's 45 days as I understand is one of the longer guarantee periods for a web host and that was one of the reasons why I bought you know again there are a lot of factors and I'll talk about that in my site count site ground comparison video that I'm going to do but things that really led me to them is the fact that you know they're backing their service by a very long guarantee so I know again I can switch to them and I've got 45 days to evaluate and decide whether or not this fits for me so that's a that's a pretty strong guarantee that they're putting out there so here they talk about you know you can either start a new website or they've got their transfer you know they can transfer their what your website to their service here you see where their server locations are so they've got one in Dallas that's the one I use they've got Newark New Jersey Toronto Ontario Chicago Illinois London Amsterdam Frankfurt Tokyo Singapore and Mumbai so they've got 10 server location so you can pick the one that's best for you based on where your clients website visitors are located you know where they mostly tend to come from you know you've got a lot of different options it'll cover a good part of the world here you know they've got reviews by other people here they do comparisons with other with other hosting providers they've got comparison with Bluehost GoDaddy iPage one-in-one hostgator site B or site v I guess and I've actually you know I wrote them the other day and said you know you've got to put something on your website comparing yourself to site ground because you're just as good as site ground and you know so I hope at some point you'll take my advice seriously and put that up there because you know they do have some other ones but I think they should put themselves on a higher tier and compare themselves to something like site ground which often you know again you see I see site ground recommended a lot in facebook groups I don't see as much on fast comment which again in my experience fast kind of is just as good so hopefully at some point they'll put that in there okay so that is you know are the basic features let me show you here what it looks like when you log in so I'll just log in to my account here real quick so this is what it looks like when you first log in I will say there are a couple things that I don't like about this one is you know they've got this big promotion thing here at the front I wish I would take that off I mean you know we're customer already we don't need to be inundated with from promotions right there's no way I've seen which I can turn this off it's not a big deal but I really wish they would get rid of that you know if you want to send me your promotion send me an email I don't need to see that every time I log in to my account here you've got again you see your products right there your active products your domains I've got one registered with them and then I've got one couple registered elsewhere you've got support oops no that was not support okay so you've got support you can see your tickets you've got tutorials and knowledgebase as I said they also have live chat if you want to interact with them via live chat right there's a live chat button so you've got a lot of different options there in terms of you know as I said if you have an issue you know you've got the support you've got live chat I believe again there's also a phone number you can call so you've got different ways when you do have issues and then here's your cPanel this is again one thing again but I really don't like I'm already logged in why do I need to then log into my cPanel it seems kind of redundant but that is the way they do it so you do that and it's a typical cPanel you know if you've you seen cPanel before it should look pretty familiar I generally just use file manager and then you know my email of it comes through here I don't really use again they've got all these different things I don't tend to use a lot of them but if you're familiar cPanel it's it's really not different than any other cPanel that you've seen so that's that's kind of what it looks like when you log in you know the kind of giving you an eye view of what it looks like when you're actually within the the fast comet website so let's take a look at the plans and pricing now I hear I'm looking the shared hosting because that's what I use they've got cloud VPS hosting and dedicated CPU CPU servers these are a lot more expensive I can't talk about them because I don't personally use them I couldn't make a nasara' recommendation I would assume they're good but that would not be something I could personally recommend because I haven't used those services I you know what I'm using as a shared hosting I've got this mid tier plan the fast cloud plus now as you see what you're getting here which are what they're showing is a special price right now and this is pretty typical posting what often happens is you get a special introductory price and then you do have to pay more later I mean you know again this gets back to the fact that it's important that you have quality hosting you know hosts only ever charges introductory price they'd all either got a business or they provide really horrible service you don't want that so it does you know you will eventually if you stay with them have to pay more but that's normal you know what they're doing here isn't any different than what again somebody like SiteGround does so for this one which is just a single website it's two ninety-five a month to begin begin with and then 995 a month afterwards this here which the plan I have and which includes unlimited websites is 595 a month and then after that it moves up to fourteen ninety-five a month and then fast cloud extra is nine ninety-five a month and it moves it up to nineteen ninety-five a month now you're not limited to buying just a month when I bought my fast Kyle plus I went all-in I paid for three years of service so I got an introductory a very very low introductory price for three years so I think I paid I believe it was 187 dollars for three years worth of service for this mid tier service so you know you can do something like that it doesn't mean you know as I mentioned they will eventually increase the price but it doesn't have to be right away you can buy for a long period of time and delay that that's what I did and again I'm very happy with the decision that I made again I'm not going to go through all these different features you can take a look at them obviously there are plans you know you get more storage spaces you go up you get you know faster servers you get more website visitors per month these I forget if I mention this because these second two plans both have unlimited websites here you to CP or CPU cores 4-6-2 ram availability three and then six resource quotas again it goes up so again obviously as you move up in plans you go from webs one website to unlimited but then you also as you go from that from the second tier to the third tier you get you know even more features so that is pretty much everything in this video that I want to share about fast comet if you have questions if you have comments please let me know I'd be more than happy to try to answer questions as best as I can again I will put my affiliate link in the description of the video if you do choose
