FatCow Review


If you’re a newbie looking for hosting at a company that remembers what it’s like to be the new kid on the block, FatCow might be the provider for you. One of a very few hosting providers who opened their doors before Google, FatCow has been in operation since 1998. FatCow Web Hosting supplies consumers with web hosting services, domain registration, a FatCow website application marketplace and an affiliate/reseller program.

Out of all the services FatCow offers, they tout their web hosting solutions as, “the milk and butter” of their business. According to FatCow, “our robust, all-in-one hosting solution includes everything you need to put your business or personal site online and to manage it for years to come.” With a constantly offered “special introductory” rate of $49 per year (roughly $4 per month), FatCow makes it very easy for consumers to purchase their service, and an educational series helps their clients understand what it is they are buying and why.

Just wanted to say how pleased I am with your service. The difference is night and day compared to my last provider. I have four times the amount of space, ninety seven more email boxes, faster load times, no down time and all for less than what I was paying before. Ohhh and the Control Panel is an awesome extra. Keep up the good work guys.



FatCow has been hosting our website for two years. They have remained committed to delivering the best value and customer service in web hosting to the small business user. The technical support group is easily accessible (via telephone or Internet), professional and quick to respond. Our clients have never experienced difficulty accessing our site. We utilize the FatCow Plan, which is a great deal.



This is merely laudatory – my other option was to phone up your support staff and embarrass them. I’ve only been an Internet user since 1999, now, I’m consulting about it. I feel as though I owe a sizable fraction of my success to FatCow. When I first signed up, I thought the price was reasonable for a bare-bones service; every time you folks add another little utility, I almost feel guilty. And every time I add or upgrade an account, or walk into a corner that usually gets me an email from your Tech people within an hour, I am thankful. In short: FatCow is lean, swift, rock-steady, smart, and inexpensive.
