FastComet, a San Francisco-based company that provides web hosting and cloud hosting solutions for small business owners, entrepreneurs and developers, has announced a significant overhaul of its shared cloud hosting platform.
“FastComet’s offerings are now suited to all phases of a business’s web hosting cycle,” said Daniel Lee, Director of Product at FastComet. “Our new cloud hosting services fulfill the needs of those businesses just beginning to build a web presence as well as the needs of growing businesses demanding more out of their hosting plans. As our customers web hosting needs grow, we grow with them.”
The new cloud hosting plans are designed so that even new website owners would have a stress free and easy experience. FastComet’s entry-level shared cloud hosting plan, the StartSmart, allows customers to host one domain name with their account, while the mid-level plan, now called the ScaleRight plan, allows customers to host unlimited domain names within the same account. The newly launched SpeedUp plan, would offer enhanced platform, increased reliability and extra speed.
The SpeedUp plan would exceed what was offered before in the other plans, providing more server resources and less limitations for the clients. Faster than its two fellow plans, the new SpeedUp shared hosting solution boasts Solid State Drive (SSD) for storage and databases and set up in a redundant RAID 10 configuration for optimal speed and data security. With this setup customers would never have to worry about failed hard drives and data loss.
FastComet’s top-level package, SpeedUp, also leverages 5-layers custom caching configuration including Varnish, APC, OPCode and Memcached, and a global CDN (Content Delivery Network).
“In addition, it runs on the blazingly fast LiteSpeed LSAPI PHP for optimal TTFB that Google will fall in love with,” added Mr. Lee. “We’ve always wanted to be the final hosting decision someone had to make. We understand the trouble it takes to research, plan for and study a web hosting provider. Our goal was always that once you choose us, there’s never a need to go through that process again. Our new cloud hosting plans help us get closer to that goal.”
