I worked with many hosting providers over the last 20 years, from very small teams to large international companies. We mainl...展开
y do website development, so we have some Linux etc experience in house, but we don't have time and knowledge for daily hosting related stuff anymore. FastComet turned out to be a very reliable partner over the years, the support is fast and almost always finds a solution even for more complex problems. We moved most of our mission critical sites to their infrastructure. I recommend them very much!
I have hosted with fastcomet since last year. I paid for the entire year for "Fast Cloud Extra" plan with the 35G HD space. M...展开
y account did'nt reach the limit but since I had zipped file of 7 GB and it was unzipped by developers, and later on zip file was removed but they blocked my account. If you type my website address, it shows on screen, due to "billing for outstanding invoices" my account have been disabled. I have chat with technical support many times but my account after six months is still unavailable. If you want to trash your time, effort and money this is your company to host with. Time is money and money is time. My account is not availabale while I have paid for the the entire year. So I lost money and Time both, you do the math....
Recently my client and I both lost our email services on a phurix host. It was reported to normal support and through their '...展开
urgent' support route but their response was nothing, not even an acknowledgement. 10 days later and many emails from us and still no response.
I was on the basic personal option but my client was on small business level option and loss of emails was a serious issue for them so we had no choice but to move to another host. I changed our MX records to point to the new host and got our email functionality back instantly, then I redirect our nameservers. This issue was not the only time we've had poor support so moving hosts had already been discussed; this was the final straw though.
The new host is fastcomet.com and actually worked out cheaper than phurix as we're combining our domains onto the one host, but price is not the main concern, it's the support and so far it has been very good from fastcomet, with a support ticket and online chat options available - something that phurix used to have but dispensed with several years ago unfortunately.
Also their claimed 100% reliability is only on the network connectivity - it doesn't include server downtime!
There may be a solid reason for their total lack of support but as we don't know what this is we didn't have much choice; they've hosted several domains for me for over 10 years but loyalty only goes so far, bye bye phurix.
