Fatcow Web Hosting Review
Fatcow established in the year 1998, went on to become one of the best and widely sought after hosting providers in the industry. Though the name Fatcow may sound very informal and the cartoon characters found site wide gives a jovial impression, these guys out there are really serious about their business and know their business well. They still believe in the traditional way of doing business. Lately they have come up with $66 plan and are concentrated in promoting this one single plan which was once offered at $99. Fatcow is primarily focused on customer satisfaction. A unique move made by them of late saw the introduction of Mini Moo plan, targeted to offer a limited plan at an unbelievable low price tag of 5$ per year. Though the features offered are limited, it is ideal for individual users who prefer to experiment internet and for start ups.
Reliability and Performance
Fatcow has the history of low down time and offers fast server response. The company now has completed a decade of successful hosting. Started with few hundred websites hosted has now grown to accommodate and serve several thousands of big and small websites. They use cutting edge technology to improvise their server performance and has 24/7 network monitoring. The servers are under constant surveillance by real men who swings into action as and when an emergency happens. The servers have backup facility in order to prevent loss of data in case of emergency. We found the hosting very stable with less down time and the performance is good enough to leave a comment.
Value for Money
Fatcow unlike other web hosting companies concentrates on one single plan and promote it. Now the company offers a plan which is available at $66 per year. The features offered include a fully loaded Cpanel with high level control, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited domain hosting, unlimited disk space, and a free domain for life. It also provides unlimited email accounts along with several associated features, including webmail, a powerful spam filter and a newsletter management tool. The uniqueness is visible in the offer where they offer additional features at individual price tags where most of the service provides offer additional features in packages of more than one feature. From user’s point of view is very economical and flexible as he is only paying for the service he is using. This package is ideal for online business as it offers free shopping carts, paypal integration and SSL support.
We found the control panel very organized and had no difficulty figuring out all the available features. The installcentral feature offers for quick installation of application software such as blogs, forums, wiki, shopping carts and much more. We never had any difficulty in managing these features.
Fatcow has a well organized customer support team in place. We experienced prompt response from them. We contacted them through all the means offered and found the results very impressive. We certainly rate them with highest point as we didn’t find any delay in the response nor the actions followed.
