For my business website, I went searching and searching for a good web hosting provider. Not just a good hosting provider a freaking amazing hosting provider. I read reviews online, spoke with other businesses with websites and even spoke with the fine ladies and gentlemen working at Geek Squad trying to find the best (and most affordable) hosting provider. Disappointment after disappointment, I not only found a great price but the freaking amazing hosting provider that I was looking for – finally. FatCow.
Fat Cow hosting is definitely, an A+. I was kind of scared to try out a hosting service business that was up and coming, because you just never know what kind of problems you might run into. When I put my trust into my previous web hosting service (name removed for possible legal complications), I kind of fell into their sales trap. I thought wow, these prices are so amazing, the service is so unbelievable, and the sales girl sounded so close, they must be too good to be true – low and behold, they were. The first thing I noticed was that the server was extremely slow when loading my website. Next, I started noticing 500 Internal Errors that would show up multiple times a day – so many times, that I finally ended my contract with them. I felt so duped that I had to call them, stay on hold for almost an hour, and personally tell them that their service and servers, to put it simply, sucked.
With Fat Cow, there are no problems that I have yet to experience – and I don’t expect to run into any. The prices are great, the lowest in town, and the server speed an hosting uptime speed is magnificent. When it came to hosting speed, Hosting-Review.com actually gave them the highest rating: 10 out of 10. Another big thing I look for is customer service and Fat Cow has it: friendly customer service workers and live online chat – love it. FatCow also offers services that can help you not just build a quick loading, nice running website, but also SEO tools to help get your website to the top. If you are worried about content management systems, no worries. FatCow offers WordPress, Joomla and other user friendly platforms. They also have cool online bonuses such as $50 Facebook advertising credits, $100 Adword credits, and free listings on YP.com to help SEO your site.
To compare the FatCow pricing with other known hosting providers – HostGator, IX web hosting, Blue Host, In Motion Hosting and 1&1 Hosting – all more expensive than FatCow, all had lower hosting uptime ratings! Look it up yourself by checking out hosting reviews at Hosting Review.comWhen it comes to my own plan, I took advantage of the FREE Domain, $3.15/ month hosting service. Something that if you want to take advantage of, you need to go to their website right now – their hosting deals will end soon (according to their homepage. In the end, check out the FatCow hosting homepage to find out what services and deals they offer or give them a call.
