Offers and Pricing

Shared Hosting Plans
Name Domains Disk Bandwidth Min Price Billing Term
Ignite 1 10 Gb Unlim $6.5 1 Mo
Momemtum 3 20 Gb Unlim $12.99 1 Mo
Ultimate 100 120 Gb Unlim $25.98 1 Mo

There are 3 shared plans on offer.

Prices for shared hosting plans start with £2.50/mo (promo) / £5.00/mo (renewal). Prices are in GBP only, which may not be very convenient for international customers.

However, prices above in the table are in US dollars, and they are the only payment option to choose from – monthly. Well, this is ok as far as we can say, no confusion or indecisiveness here: take it, or leave it.

Also, don’t forget “20% VAT” – if you turn this option on at the top of the main page, you’ll be able to see the full price, which is higher. Keep that in mind.

FastHosts.co.uk also offers a variation of services:

  • WordPress hosting,
  • Decicated and cloud servers,
  • Domain registration and transfer,
  • 3d party website builder (powered by BaseKit),
  • Email services, to name a few.

Support

The provider offers a variation of support options, such as an email, phone (general and sales) and a support center.

No live chat has been detected on the pages of their website.

But they promise: “Less than 10% of our customers need to contact us about technical issues. That’s because our services are reliable and easy to use. But, if you do need help, rest assured we have experts on hand 24/7/365”, – let’s hope they are sincere here.


FastHosts.co.uk Summary Analysis by HRank

The provider was not ranked highly in our chart for 20184.6 and appeared on the 118th position). 2019 showed the following values: 4.5 HRank and 170th position.

Its performance wasn’t very impressive either since we started monitoring (August 2018) till December 2019, especially if you take the number of domains hosted into consideration. They had many serious cases of downtime for 2 years, its general downtime chart can be called bad.

Their response time was slower than the average – 1000ms.

They lost a number of domains and reduced the number of shared IPs.

FastHosts.co.uk is not on our recommendation list.
