Facts about the Lifetime free Domain
One of the most noticeable advantages of FastComet is their lifetime free domain registration. Along with every hosting plan, you can register a free domain and according to the information on FastComet website, it is free for lifetime. I have been spending 10-20 dollars every year for renewing my domain and getting a free domain for a lifetime is something very eye pulling.
Did they really provide a free domain for a lifetime? This was the question in my mind and Like you, I was also curious to know about it further. I have a chat conversation with their support agent and what he told was there on the picture below.
Actually, the domain name will be for free as long as we are using FastComet web hosting service and if you are transferring your website to any other web host, you have to pay $13.95 per year for the domain. But the best part is, you can also transfer the domain to any other registrant without any hustle. The domains included for the free registration are: .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .in, .co.uk, .us. .eu, .ca, .es, .ru, .cn, .nl, .de.
FastComet Server Uptime
After using FastComet for the last 187 days, we got 99.99% till now. The downtime happened only once and it lasted for 147 seconds according to the uptime robot analysis. We have tested more than 50 web hosts till date and this is the first time we are getting a value that a web host has promised.
We are also using some premium web hosts like SiteGround, WP Engine, BlueHost etc. But according to latest uptime report, these web hosts are providing an uptime average in between 99.96% and 99.98%. The upper hand in uptime making Fastcomet stronger to compete with the big guns in the web hosting Industry.
Web hosts which having an uptime below 99.93% are not good for business websites and in that case FastComet providing an appreciable uptime value for business websites.
Page Load Time
Even after using Lossless data compression and cache header optimisation along with Cloudflare CDN Caching, Websites hosted with Fastcomet was a bit slow. It's taking too long to load and we are not so happy with their Load speed. Having a CDN caching and even loading slowly is not appreciated. FastComet should concentrate more on Load time to make a better experience for its customers.
The test website we have used to write this FastComet review was having a heavy homepage of almost 4MB, but we have used this same website previously for testing other web hosts and we got a value not higher than 3 seconds all the time before.
