Fatcow has been a phenomenal host for the two years I’ve hosted with them. My basic plan includes unlimited disk space and bandwidth that is coupled with what may be some of the best customer support I’ve ever experienced with a web host. As a GoDaddy convert, I was blown away by the knowledgeability of phone representatives and how easy it is to reach them (webchat or phone).
For what you get, the pricing is fantastic. Our yearly hosting and domain costs are less than 65 dollars. While the plans come with many common benefits like AdWords vouchers, I’ve found FatCow’s uptime and support to be the true source of its value. The many included features are easy to configure, and while the interface isn’t groundbreaking, its easy enough to navigate after some practice. As I mentioned before, customer support is always there for you if you get lost.
In terms of features, FatCow has them all, and most aren’t dauntingly complicated. Domain masking and FTP configuration were a snap. The website offers great documentation for beginners as well, especially with regards to what things do (as opposed to just configuration instructions). In addition to all this, the service is powered exclusively by renewable energy and the company regularly donates to worthy causes. With all this, I can safely say I will remain a FatCow customer for many years.
