Business Name: Hostfast Limited

Company Owner: Hostfast Limited

Year of foundation: 2004

Location: London, UK

BBB Accreditation: No

Market Size: > 7K websites (#65 in HRank list)

Growth Status: (by websites quantity): Decreasing

The company’s website redirects to Hostfast.com, and it is doing business as 3iX.com. Yet, they seem to be the part of Hostfast.com that have their own website.

The only data they have on their pages is Hostfast Kensington address in London, as well as some phone numbers; however, next thing they would want to do is share a little more detailed information about themselves online.

Report for 2108

HRANK# in TOPUptime, %Response, msSites, +(-)Shared IPs, +(-)
  • 3iX gained 2.8 HRank and appeared in the 230th place in 2018.
  • 3iX had disastrous uptime results in 2018. Though its lowest points were 95% and 96%, it was going up and down all the time, hence such a low rank.
  • The company couldn’t boast having fast response time in 2018 either: it stayed in the range of 1,000ms – 1,200ms.
  • It looks like by the end of the year some of the customers got tired of this roller-coaster ride and started quitting one by one, thus, the number of domains decreased.
