Hello Guys, Welcome to Hosting Lovers!
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.
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.
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. You will get an extra discount, and this website will earn a small amount of commission from it. So, we can do more feature speed tests, reviews, and comparisons without any sponsors.
Now, without wasting your precious time, let’s start testing.
The first test we will do is the KeyCDN Test. With the KeyCDN test, we can measure website total load time and TTFB from 10+ worldwide locations.
|Server Location||Test 1||Test 2||Test 3|
|Frankfurt||828 ms||821 ms||807 ms|
|Amsterdam||786 ms||773 ms||783 ms|
|London||796 ms||788 ms||797 ms|
|New York||553 ms||552 ms||567 ms|
|Dallas||463 ms||443 ms||475 ms|
|San Francisco||611 ms||584 ms||595 ms|
|Singapore||1.04 s||1.05 s||1.07 s|
|Sydney||960 ms||997 ms||978 ms|
|Tokyo||816 ms||826 ms||838 ms|
|Bangalore||1.2 s||1.19 s||1.19 s|
|Global Average||805 ms||802 ms||810 ms|
|Server Location||Load Time|
|New York||1.71 s|
|San Francisco||2.52 s|
|Global Average||4.29 s|
Google PageSpeed Test
Google PageSpeed test is the essential test. Google PageSpeed tool is the official tool of Google for measuring website speed and performance. Google PageSpeed test can be different from test to test. Therefore I took three different results from three different days.
|Metrics||Test 1||Test 2||Test 3|
|First Contentful Paint||4.0 s||4.0 s||4.0 s|
|Largest Contentful Paint||4.1 s||4.1 s||4.1 s|
|Speed Index||6.0 s||5.9 s||6.2 s|
|Time to Interactive||7.9 s||7.9 s||8.0 s|
|Metrics||Test 1||Test 2||Test 3|
|First Contentful Paint||0.9 s||0.9 s||0.9 s|
|Time to Interactive||1.0 s||0.9 s||0.9 s|
|Largest Contentful Paint||1.4 s||1.4 s||1.3 s|
|Speed Index||2.1 s||2.0 s||2.1 s|
In the Pingdom test, we can measure website fully loaded time from 7 worldwide locations.
|Server Location||Load Time|
|Tokyo – Japan||5.25 s|
|Frankfurt – Germany||4.42 s|
|London – UK||3.62 s|
|Washington D.C. – USA||1.42 s|
|San Francisco – USA||2.14 s|
|Sydney – Australia||6.27 s|
|São Paulo – Brazil||4.66 s|
|Global Average||3.96 s|
GTMetrix test is based on the Google PageSpeed test. But with the GTMetrix test, we can get results from 7 worldwide locations. Also, with the results, we can get website performance score, TTFB, and fully loaded time.
|Server Location||Performance||TTFB||Fully Loaded Time|
|Vancouver, Canada||85%||794 ms||1.7 s|
|Hong Kong, China||52%||1.4 s||3.4 s|
|London, UK||60%||907 ms||3.1 s|
|Mumbai, India||43%||1.8 s||5.4 s|
|San Antonio, TX, USA||95%||491 ms||1.2 s|
|Sydney, Australia||62%||986 ms||3.6 s|
|São Paulo, Brazil||64%||1.0 s||3.5 s|
|Global Average||65%||1.0 s||3.1 s|
Fast or Slow Test
Fast or slow is the most extreme test from all of the tests. In the Fast or Slow test, we get test results from 18 different worldwide locations.
|First Contentful Paint||5|
|Largest Contentful Paint||79|
|Time to Interactive||88|
|First Byte||1.02 s|
|Min First Byte||589.37ms|
|Max First Byte||1.46 s|
|Largest Contentful Paint||1.74s|
With the Load test, we can know how much load any particular website or hosting can handle.
|Response Times||100 Visits/Minute||250 Visits/Minute|
|Average||808 ms||853 ms|
|Minimum||749 ms||755 ms|
|Maximum||1374 ms||2152 ms|
Uptime is one of the most important things in any hosting. Therefore, I measured the uptime of FastComet shared hosting for every one minute.
|October, 2021||Uptime: 99.91%|
Downtime: 38 mins 56 secs
|November, 2021||Uptime: 100%|
Downtime: 2 mins 7 secs
|December, 2021||Uptime: 100%|
Downtime: 2 mins 9 secs
WP Performance Test
The WP Performance test is based on two WordPress plugins, 1) WPPerformanceTester and 2) WordPress Hosting Benchmark tool.
WPPerformanceTester performs the following tests and allows us to see how any hosting server’s performance stacks up against industry benchmark. WordPress Hosting Benchmark tool test the server CPU, memory bandwidth, disk speed, and network download speed. After finishing the test, it provides a server score as a result.
