If you are planning to buy FastComet Shared hosting, and you want to know the performance of FastComet Shared hosting, then you are in the right place. In this blog post, We will test the speed and performance of FastComet Shared hosting with 10+ different and extensive tests.

Let’s Get Started!

FastComet Shared Hosting

FastComet is one of the few privately-owned, independent global web hosting companies nowadays. It was established in 2013. Currently, they host more than 50,000 personal and small-business websites. That is a huge milestone in just 7 years. With 70+ Employees they continue to develop and improve their hosting service every day.

FastComet offers 3 types of hostings currently. Shared Cloud SSD Hosting, Fully Managed SSD Cloud VPS, Fully Managed Dedicated CPU Servers. They also offer domains and FastComet Website Builder along with various types of hostings.

In this blog post, we will only talk about Shared Hostings. So Let’s start without wasting your affordable time.

Plans & Pricing

In the shared hosting segmet, FastComet offers 3 various plans. All plans are fairly priced. You can choose according to your websites and traffic. All plans come with cPanel, Daily Backups, Let’s Encrypt Free SSL, Free Cloudflare CDN, Softaculous 1-Click Autoinstaller, Unlimited Email accounts. In all of the three plans, I think FastCloud Plus is the best value for money plan.

Testing Environment

To test FastComet Shared hosting speed and performance, I bought FastCloud Plus plan. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will already know that I create the same testing website when I perform speed tests. After buying the plan, I installed WordPress and connected it with my domain which I bought from NameCheap.

I do not want to run tests on a blank website, so I installed Blocksy Theme and one of its demo websites called ‘Tasty.’ I have to install four additional extra plugins with the demo website: Blocksy Companion, WP Forms Lite, Stackable, Recipe Card Blocks by WPZOOM.

Hosting: FastComet Shared Hosting
Plan: FastCloud Plus
Server Location: Dallas (TX-US)
WordPress Version: 5.8
Themes: Blocksy (Active), Twenty twenty One
Plugins: Blocksy Companion, WP Forms Lite, Stackable, Recipe Card Blocks by WPZOOM

After setting this testing environment, I did not perform any extra optimizations like caching, Image compressing, modification, or any other kind of speed improvement. It would be best if you always did these optimizations to improve your website, but I wanted to know the actual performance of FastComet shared hosting without any optimizations.

Quick Disclaimer:
I want to inform you guys that all the results are honest and authentic in this blog post. Also, this blog post is not sponsored by FastComet hosting or any other hosting.

To do these kinds of tests, I have to spend a lot of money from my pocket, So I would like to request that if you want to buyFastComet Hosting or any other hosting, please use our affiliate links.

Now, without wasting your precious time, let’s start testing.
