Besides all the features they also take great pride in their customer service.

good support

Feb 8 2012

The price is good because it is possible to have as many sites as you prefer. All of my drupal sites are working great. When the mysql server caused some issues for me I just had to contact the support department. Anytime I have internal server errors the support team gets it fixed quickly.

would recommend

Mar 7 2012

My initial response to what fatcow offers was surprise because it seems like it is a lot of features for a small bit of money. I have been pretty well satisfied by them. When I did have a down time experience, all that I had to do was contact the help desk. The fact that the help desk is up and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is a big plus. I have no qualms about recommending this co

They give a lot-

Mar 5 2012

I understand why so many people use FatCow. They give you a lot for the cost that they charge. I like that I never have to worry that the servers are highly unlikely to be going down. I also am happy that if I need the support team, they will be available.

I am pleasantly surprised!

Apr 3 2012

So far, FatCow has helped me solve 2 or three questions about my setup using the phone, email and live chat, and I was able to log on and print receipts for my recent payments. I am pleasantly surprised at the excellent level of service, support and tools FatCow provides to the clueless webmaster out there!

FatCow is the real deal

Apr 4 2012

I'm a FatCow customer for over a year already. Very satisfied with their service on so many levels. Like FatCow's friendly, relaxed attitude but very professional at the same time. The support team (the call it "Moo Crew" I think) is great! Very responsive and very helpful. Also, they've got all the tools I need to run my blog and photo gallery. And if I ever decide to run e-commerce site I'm pretty sure FatCow got all the tools necessary for that. And they keep adding new cool stuff to their package. Recently they added Akamai - so now people around the globe can connect to my site supper fast! Just love it!

Oh No

Mar 20 2012

I was really happy with fatcow until this week. My site has been down for two days and they keep telling me that I need to look into things on my end because they are working just fine. I am losing business and have no idea what to do. If i reviewed the company last week they would have gotten all 5's now I am only giving them a 3!!!

competetive, user friendly

Mar 9 2012

I love Fatcow so much that I have transferred my own personal websites as well as most of my clients domains to Fatcow hosting services. Their annual renewal prices are low and competetive, the cPanel is very user-friendly, and they offer many security features such as website backups, domain privacy, and SiteLock to protect your site from hackers.

50+ Accounts

Mar 14 2012

Best hosting service...and I've used a lot! I'm a web designer with 50+ active accounts so I need a reliable webhosting service. Over the years I have used many webhosts mainly because some of my clients already have a webhost. I have found Fatcow to be the best in customer and technical support, as well as billing support.
