It was originally founded way back in 1998 before being acquired in 2004 by the infamous EIG (who also owns HostGator, Bluehost, and many others.)

Hosting Overview

SPEED: 948 ms (April 2020 to March 2021)

UPTIME: 99.94% (April 2020 to March 2021)

SUPPORT: 24/7 Live Chat, Phone, and Knowledge Base

APPS: WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, GBook, and more

FEATURES: Unmetered Bandwidth, Storage, and Websites, Website Builder, Email Accounts, SSL Certificate, Unlimited MySQL Databases, and more

HOSTING PLANS: Shared, VPS, Dedicated, and WordPress

SITE TRANSFER: Not Free ($150/website)

PRICING: Starting at $4.08/mo (renews at $8.99)

FatCow’s pricing is relatively cheap, but the renewal rates are way too high. They have improved their uptime over the past year, which is great, the customer support is good, and they also offer many handy features.

They even have a fun, whimsical name. Ironically, it’s a little too accurate. Across the board, they’re just a bit too average for us.

Their page speed is terribly slow, and there are too many upsells or extra fees (e.g backups, site migrations, etc.).
