If we talk about the Hosting company and do not include Server Speed, Performance and Downtime. Then the review of the actual host will not be mean good without this.
Choosing the best plan will be a headache but Fastcomet provides an easy pickup plan. That means no hidden charges or any hidden fees with any plan included. The company has fixed pricing plans. Let’s talk about them below.
In terms of performance, I would recommend without any second word. But you know why? Because This review blog is also hosted on the Fastcomet hosting server. We have purchased Fastcloud Plus Plan which supports multiple sites to host on one server.
We tested first our primary blog: alsomindy.com and what we get speed and performance test on GTmetrix and Pingdom respectively.
As you can see the above results the server and performance test of outliving site. For testing purposes, we tried another site that is hosted on the same Fastcomet server. Look below screenshot for the quizzesbasket.com performance test.
But you will see the difference in the performance and server speed. This is because One site is full of content and another site has zero content but the speed on both sites is amazing.
If we review about hosting service and don’t talk about Uptime and Downtime, It will not be worth it. The remaining Uptime for any host is a crucial factor in Hosting a server. Many Hosting providers claims about a 100% uptime guarantee but that is really true? I Don’t think so.
Do you know why? Earlier I have tested around 4 to 6 hosting companies for my WordPress projects. But the issue which I faced so much about these hosting providers is the Downtime and uptime issue.
We tested our actual testing site over UptimeRobot. After we checked when and at which time our test site was down and up. We have put our site on Uptimeserve to monitor on 13 Jan 2021. To date, we are monitoring both sites there.
Look at the results below. As in this screenshot, you will see the Uptime of the Quizzesbasket.com site set up and monitored on the Uptimerobot server.
The site is up and running for the last 1605 hrs, 59 minutes (which Means 66 days). The website is also up and running for the last 24 hours with no downtime received. There is a downtime received of a few minutes (4 minutes) but that was on last 29th January 2021. From Jan to this written review we haven’t seen any downtime on both sites.
Current status: Up and Running
Uptime: 100% (Last 24 Hours)
Uptime: 100% (Last 7 Days)
Uptime: 100% (Last 30 Days)
Latest Downtime: Last was on 29-01-2021 (No downtime till date)

Fastcomet has Solid SSD Hosting but is Better than Bluehost?
Even Bluehost is recommended by WordPress.org officially but that does mean you will get each and every feature in that hosting. Might be WordPress will have considered many things before recommending them as best hosting.
But from time to time things has changed. Many hosting companies have come into the market with the best services and features so we can not deny that Bluehost is far better than Fastcomet this time. Further is users choose to choose which service they love and go for.
We decide to choose Fastcomet Hosting as the preferred host as we had already tried many hosts but many things we didn’t get free. But when compared to another host we decided to go with this host.
