Can You Host Multiple Websites on FastComet?
Hosting multiple websites using one single service is something many site owners seem to like. After all, there’s a good reason for that. If you choose the right hosting service, you’ll be able to host even an unlimited number of websites, without the need to spread them through many companies.
Today we’ll talk about a popular hosting company from the US. It’s called FastComet. What is it that we’ll cover in this article? Let’s see!
First of all, you’ll know what FastComet is all about. More precisely, I’ll tell you what they offer, and why they are a good fit for most site owners. Even if you own more than 1 website.
The next thing will be to give a more thorough look at the shared hosting plans that offer support for multiple websites in one single open account. This way, you’ll choose your option a lot easier.
Let’s begin with a quick intro to FastComet:
As I already mentioned above, FastComet is an American hosting company. They operate on a world-wide scale. More than 45,000 customers are happy users of one of FastComet’s services. If you live in one of the 83 countries where the company offers hosting services, you’re all set to sign up.
The company offers 8 different server locations throughout the globe. These are located in major cities, like Chicago, Singapore, Tokyo and London. Due to this fact, when you sign up for a hosting plan, you can have the best server location with the chosen plan.
Why am I mentioning this? Because it matters quite a lot. That’s because when you set up a new website, you must have a target audience for it, right? If your ideal audience is US-based, you can choose to work with a US server location.
By doing this, you’ll make sure that your website will load faster for all your visitors in a specific location (the USA in this specific example). The same is true with all the other server locations you can choose from.
Now, let’s see why so many people use FastComet to host multiple websites. I’ll give you more than one reason for this:
The first advantage that I must mention is speed. Who wants a website that takes an “eternity” to load its contents? You know the answer. That is why FastComet puts a lot of effort into bringing you one of the best loading speeds.
In fact, if you want to have a quick website (or multiple ones), you need to make sure it loads in less than 2 (maybe 3) seconds. Why? Because studies show that a huge number of potential visitors abandon a website if it won’t load in less than 2 seconds. This might sound to be easier said than done.
But with FastComet to back you up, you will surely make it. They offer state of the art SSD drives for ensuring fast websites on all hosting plans. This is essential, because an SSD will load the content many times faster than a traditional HDD. That is even 10 and 20 times faster.
Another pro at FastComet is the uptime guarantee they give. Many people who already used one or more hosting services from FastComet, seem to get almost 100% uptime with their websites. And keep in mind that the industry standard is 99,9%. They come out even better than that.
There are many more advantages that come with using FastComet. But you might want to see more specifics. So it’s time to talk about the shared hosting plans from FastComet that support multiple websites:
Multiple Websites with FastComet
You probably know that most hosting companies divide every service into multiple separate packages or plans. This is the case with FastComet too. But before we take a look at the shared hosting they offer; I’ll list all the hosting services available at them:
- Shared Hosting
- Cloud VPS Hosting
- Dedicated Hosting
- WordPress Hosting
- Joomla Hosting
- SocialEngine Hosting
- OpenCart Hosting
Because most people who own a website, or even multiple ones, are using shared hosting, that is the service we’ll talk about right now. But from the list above you can clearly see that FastComet is serious about offering every type of web hosting one might need.
The first plan called StartSmart only lets you host one single website. So, we’ll skip that plan and move on to the second and third ones.
This is the second shared hosting plan from FastComet. You can get it for $5,95/month. The renewal price is also the same. This is great news, because many other hosting providers will raise the price for certain plans when you renew your subscription. But what are the features you get, that make this plans suitable for hosting multiple websites? Let’s see!
For instance, the plan description says that you can host multiple websites. Unfortunately, it doesn’t say how many. But 2 or 3 websites will go just fine with this plan.
This is due to the resources they give you. You’ll receive 25GB of SSD storage space. Such an amount of storage space is more than enough for hosting 2 or 3 websites in one account. And they will load quickly no matter what, because of the SSD drives.
If you sign up for this plan, the company will also give you a free domain name for life. It’s true, you don’t have to renew the domain. It will never expire.
You can also transfer up to 3 websites for free. For hosting multiple websites, this is a great feature that not too many other hosts will give you.
Of course, your privacy and security are also assured with this plan. For example, you’ll get a free SSL certificate for every website you host using this service. Other companies could make you pay separately for each certificate you need.
Now, I’ll list here some of the features included in this package. You should know that most of these will let you host multiple websites much easier and more efficient:
- Unlimited databases
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Unlimited email accounts
- Free site builder tool
- Unlimited addon domains
- 2x CPU and RAM compared to the first plan, that only supports 1 website
- 1-click app installer
- Daily backups
- Many others…
SpeedUp is the 3rd and final shared hosting plan that also supports hosting for multiple websites. As you’d expect, all the features that the previous plans offer, are also included in this package too. But what is the price you pay for this service?
It’s more expensive than the 2nd plan. It comes for a monthly $9,95. Is it worth the money? The short answer is yes. But let’s elaborate a little:
I said that every feature and resource is here that was present at the 1st and 2nd plans. However, there are some additions as well. For instance, you’ll receive some specific bonuses built to increase site speeds and efficiency.
The number of clients on a single server will drop significantly, thus letting your site use more processing power and resources (3x more RAM and CPU power).
You may know that shared hosting works on the premise that multiple clients share a single server. But with this plan, there will be much less clients using your server, then with other services. And more is better in this case, because bigger your websites are, more resources they need.
This feature is especially good for you, since you plan to host more than 1 website in a single hosting plan. Also, more websites need more security right? Well, this plan doesn’t shy away from giving you every security measure you can think of.
And on top of that, you get 30 daily backups for all your websites. How awesome is that? And keep in mind that lots of other companies charge quite a bit for backing up your website. Even if you only have one. So, this is good news regarding FastComet, as you can see.
All in all, what do you think, is FastComet good at hosting multiple website? Well, I gave you more than one reason why it surely is.
In the beginning, I told you what makes FastComet stand out from the crowd, and why so many people trust them. Their customer support is among the best in the industry. So even if you’re a beginner, you’ll get plenty of help from the support team.
All the features and resources that I mentioned above will contribute to an efficient hosting service that is more than capable of handling multiple websites.
And FastComet will give you a full refund in the first 45 days if you’re not satisfied with your chosen service. But I don’t think it would come to that. More and more people are using this host, and if you’ll be the next, you won’t be disappointed.
