    FatCow’s support team is simply the best! I was very impressed how they handled the situation with my domain transfer. They have reached to domain registrar on my behalf and worked out the issue in minutes. I would recommend FatCow to anyone who’s looking for reliable hosting and great suppor

    I moved my band’s site to FatCow last week after finding some nice reviews about them. I was so busy in the studio that week and I needed help transferring the site over. FatCow’s support staff offered to transfer my site for me for free and now it’s up and running perfectly. Fat Cow is low cost and they have all the features plus great support

    Fatcow is slow compared to many others I have tried. You get what you pay for here guys, use a faster service if you have a website that you care about in the slightest.

    I think their name is fatcow because they don’t have much to offer. I joined their plan because of the price and I was very disappointed with their service, specially the support center.

    I get to the point that I have to teach the guy what I need him to do in the server, because I didn’t have access on my end.

    fatcow doesn’t have much to offer and even tough their price is low the service isn’t great.
    I had some problems with customer Service along the way but in average they are ok.

    Before I buy their plan I read some reviews on the internet and some people complaint about their email service. In my case it wasn’t a problem because I use aweber(best email service in the market).

    If you won’t overload the servers with scripts and busy forums you should give it a try and see what happen.

    Horrible customer service.

    If you expect competent customer service, look elsewhere. The sign- up page is not user friendly and if you are not careful, will create an account for you even if you do not complete the form. If this happens, good luck getting help to delete the account. I was told by FatCow support that they would delete the invalid account. However, not only did they not delete it, but charged my credit card the full yearly hosting amount. When I disputed the charge with my bank, I received a rude email from FatCow saying that they don’t allow chargebacks and as such, they were “suspending” my account. So, they don’t delete an invalid account at the customer’s request, but then threaten to suspend said account anyway? Total incompetence. Also, their LIVE chat representatives struggle with a language barrier and I was forced to repeat my requests. In all, the cheap price was not worth the headaches I had in dealing with this company. Beware.

    FatCow is fantastic!.

    At first, I was a little suspicious of them because of the name – FatCow isn’t your traditional web hosting company name. But after reading reviews, doing some research I decided to give it a try. After being with them for over 6 months I can tell you that FatCow has lived up to my expectations. My site is always up and running. Support team is great. CP is really user friendly and has all the tools I need. It’s been a pleasure to do business with them!

    I’ve been with Fat Cow for about a year and a half now, after several years with another host. Just a few issues here and there. Responses to requests/questions have been excellent. Highly recommend

    I have two accounts with FatCow for almost five years now and have had nothing but an excellent service from them. They always respond to email or telephone requests for service rapidly and expertly. I honestly can find NOTHING negative to say about FatCow webhosting, its engineer/techs, or its service. They’re ‘Five Star’ all the way!

    I switched from Yahoo hosting to Fat Cow about half a year now, and all i can say is Fat Cow is far better than what I was getting, in almost every aspect. Many Web-based applications is amazing, i can run many system level applications right in my Web browser. Of course, many other web hosting providers out there do provide similar features, but Fat Cow stands out with its strong customer service.

    I just placed an order and in 5 minutes the NEW domain. Then just to check and make sure it was not just pure luck, I typed in the newly purchased domain as and the FatCow welcome message showed up. Incredible. I expected to wait for up to a business day, or authorization or whatever, but this is – wow; I wonder how it’s possible that everything is so fast? Loving it! Cheers!
