Reviews and expert opinion Blazing Fast Host
Blazing Fast Host offers an array of hosting services including CloudLinux LiteSpeed hosting, multi-location SEO hosting, reseller hosting, SSD Cloud VPS, Managed cPanel VPS, instant dedicated server, and Managed dedicated servers.
The hosting company has offices in Kent, the U.K., but it has a customer base beyond the national borders serving clients in countries like the U.S. and Singapore.
Features and Ease of Use
Blazing Fast Host offers a good mix of hosting packages that include the following standard features:
- cPanel/WHM control panels
- Free SSL certificates
- Softaculous one-click installer
- 24/7 fast support
- Free IP: IPv4 and IPv6 address
- Free DDoS protection included
- OS: Windows and Linux operating systems
Blazing Fast Host web hosting services are offered in multiple data center locations, including the United States, Europe, and Asia. However, after much consultation, I found out that the hosting company is currently operating only from two locations: the U.S. and the U.K. And at the moment, VPS servers for Asian locations might not be available until at a much later date to be announced.
All the same, its data centers are connected with Tier 1 network bandwidth, and they are equipped with blazing-fast SSD or SATA storage servers in RAID-10 architecture. Also, its hosting servers use the powerful Intel Xeon CPU servers. All but boosting performance and providing super-fast page loading speeds of its customers’ websites.
With Blazing Fast Host premium hosting solutions, customers get to experience reliable and highly secured services powered by CloudLinux OS platforms as well as LiteSpeed Web Server. What’s more, the hosting solutions come a selection of control panels, including cPanel and WHM control panel and other features such as DDoS protection as well as SSL certificates.
To keep up to the changing preferences of its customer’s needs, the hosting company has taken upon itself to always keep on updating its hosting features, including updating new versions of cPanel control panel, MySQL databases, LiteSpeed Web Servers, among other applications. That said, the hosting company does not appear to offer any backup services.
Pricing and Support
Blazing Fast Host leads the pack in the hosting industry with unbeatable prices. However, its starter plans come with inflexible annual billing cycles, while the advanced plans include monthly billing terms. Other billing cycles available are quarterly, semi-annual, biennial, and triennial subscriptions.
It is worth noting that due to cPanel price hikes, this hosting company has stopped taking new orders for reseller hosting services, and I presume perhaps until that issue is resolved. All the same, all its prices are listed in several currencies: U.S. dollars, euros, British pounds, and Indian rupee.
Blazing Fast Host provides a 30 days money-back guarantee and has committed to an uptime guarantee of up to 99.99%.
Customers can contact the Blazing Fast Host support team via telephone, ticketing system, or live chat. Amazingly, the hosting company has also installed an online voice chat on its websites, as a means of fine-tuning its support system. Unfortunately, the hosting company does not seem to have email support.
The technical support staff has excellent customer service, they are quite responsive on all platforms and they go out of their way to assist customers in any way they can.
The Blazing Fast Host website has a fairly detailed knowledge base.
