Our impressions on Fast Comet
The hosting account is set up pretty quickly and it hardly takes around half an hour. Logging into the account takes you to a dashboard which is very plain. But a couple of clicks takes you to the link to cPanel. It’s quite decent and the panel is a great safe choice.
As well all know, a simple HTML site requires very little resources and they do not put a strain on the server. Putting up a simple HTML site showed a quick response time in all servers never exceeding 1 second. The US-based servers clocked around 1 ms which is a pretty good performance rate. When it comes to server overall uptime, response time is pretty fast(less than 2 seconds) and there were no downtimes when we tested.
You can call them at +1 (855) 818 9717 and you have a decent response. With chat, most of your queries get answered, albeit taking time, but some responses take a lot of time from representatives. FastComet is attempting to have great support and we hope they improve.
