Based in the U.K., iFastNet is an affordable web hosting company that offers reliable web hosting services to customers worldwide. It caters to the hosting needs of both small and medium businesses as well as individual hosting needs. The company’s hosting plans are scalable and its servers locally hosted.
Features and Ease of Use
iFastNet has an awesome collection of tools and features designed to give users the best hosting experience. Some of these include:
- Free domain
- Cron Jobs
- PHP, Perl, Ruby on Rails, Python
- MySQL databases
- FTP accounts
- Web-based file manager
Speed and reliability are two key features of iFastNet hosting services. Hosting packages are powered by fast Linux servers which run on Intel Xeon processors. This translates into fast webpage load times and an impressive 99.9% uptime guarantee at all levels. Add to that the advanced level of security that’s built into its Linux servers and you’ll understand why millions of websites are hosted here.
iFastNet’s hosting services aren’t just fast but user-friendly. cPanel is its choice control panel. Loaded with a ton of features, this administration tool gives you full control over your web space. You can install scripts via Softaculous app installer, import your website, create emails and databases, and carry out routine tasks from a central pace.
Moving from another hosting service to iFastNet shared hosting is a hassle-free experience. Its support team will take of website migration and setup, so you can get started quickly. But what really makes this service attractive are the free domains and free E-commerce shopping carts. A Site builder with 100s of templates and a free Let’s Encrypt SSL are a part of this ecosystem as well.
Pricing and Support
If you’ve been looking for competitively priced hosting options, you’ll be at home with iFastNet. I found their prices fair considering the number of options you get with its plans. The Starter hosting plan has some decent features suitable for small business and individuals with storage, bandwidth, and add-on domains increasing as you move up the plans.
Every customer has seven days to try out iFastNet’s hosting service and upgrade or cancel and request a refund. PayPal, WorldPay, and 2Checkout as well as credit and debit cards are all accepted. Once you make a purchase, your hosting service is activated instantly.
The iFastNet 24/7 customer support team consists of seasoned networking and hosting professionals who’ve been there and done that. You can reach them via email or the company’s online ticketing system. If you are a hands-on person, you may want to look at the detailed guides and articles in its knowledge base. Unfortunately, when I tried getting in touch with the sales team I couldn’t get a response.
