Features and Ease of Use
SonicFast provides ultra-fast customizable web hosting packages powered by WHM Complete Solution (WHMCS). The packages feature:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 24/7 support
- High-performance SSD storage
- Advanced DDoS protection
- 9% network SLA
The four web hosting plans start out with the Startup plan that has 500 MB disk space (which is pretty low), two email addresses, two FTP accounts, unlimited bandwidth, and two databases. At the other end of the scale, the Armored plan comes with unlimited everything apart from disk space which tops out at 30 GB.
All web hosting plans feature the user-friendly cPanel control panel to manage your website and hosting. This comes with the Softaculous one-click installer that allows you to install 400+ additional applications.
For security, the Corero Smart Firewall coupled with custom filters helps protect you against cyber attacks and DDoS threats. And you also get a free SSL certificate to give your customers confidence and improve your search engine ranking.
Pricing and Support
Hosting plans are offered at good prices, but you have to add 22% VAT and a 6% service fee, but – according to the website – no upfront costs or termination fees. You can pay by PayPal, credit/debit card, or cryptocurrency.
When I went to check out, I discovered that I could save a massive 1% (that’s sarcasm) by choosing an annual plan over a monthly commitment. With other hosts, you can often commit to a whole year safe in the knowledge that you can fall back on a 30-day money-back guarantee if anything goes wrong within the first month, but this vendor’s terms of service state that “all sales made by SonicFast are final.”
None of the plans offer unlimited disk space, and the entry-level plan doesn’t support multi-domain hosting. However, you do receive a free domain and a free SSL certificate.
24/7 support is provided by phone, email, and live chat. Unfortunately, the company’s knowledge base is bare, so you’ll have a hard time supporting yourself. I tested the live chat support one evening after office hours; I was pleased to receive a rapid response and to have a longer cordial conversation than I expected:
How much does SonicFast cost?
SonicFast offers plans from $1 to $40. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which SonicFast plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. SonicFast can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from SonicFast here.
How good is SonicFast’s customer support?
SonicFast is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of SonicFast being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
