  • Introduction

    With a humorous boast of “Udderly Fantastic” services, FatCow web hosting offers some new twists to the market hosting services. With plans based on yearly rather than monthly fees, FatCow is clearly set up in anticipation of long term clients enjoying and staying with the service.

  • Features

    The FatCow hosting plan is one hundred percent powered by renewable wind energy for the eco-conscious webmaster. 

    Additionally, the plan includes the following features:
    Free site transfer if you are moving an existing site to the FatCow platform.

    Instant activation and installation of a website.

    Free blogging tools through WordPress, easily integrated with a website designed on FatCow.
    Free use of the Joomla content management system (CMS).
    Free use of a toll free phone number through Nextiva.
    Free use of the point and click site building tools, including themes and templates. Even users without any background in HTML coding or programming can easily navigate the tools to create a professional and sharp looking site.
    Unlimited online disk space for data storage.
    Unlimited bandwidth for data transfer and loading speed of your website once launched.
    The terms of use for clients with FatCow defines the normal usage that can be supported by the disk space and bandwidth. Specifically, FatCow hosting is not designed for extensive file sharing of offsite multimedia files.
    Unlimited number of POP supported email addresses “for the whole herd,” including forwarding and auto-responders, as well as webmail alternatives for web based mail solutions.
    Free integration of scripts including phpBB, Joomla, Wordpress, PHP, CGI, Python, Ruby, MySQL, Perl, and others.
    Free integration of online shoping carts.
    Unlimited number of FTP users and sub users.
    Free SSL secure certificate and server.
    Easy integration of PayPal, catalog builders, coupon and sales options, and other selling tools.
    For e-commerce sites, credit cards can be accepted online through iPayment as well as PayPal. Additionally, the Doba product sourcing software provides an inventory of more than one and a half million products that you can choose to sell on your website, without any of the hassle of inventory or shipping.
    An eco-friendly green badge that you can add to your website, touting the fact that the site and its hosting platform are entirely powered by renewable wind energy.
    Business sites can use tools and scripts for sending HTML newsletters and emails, managing email lists of clients, tracking the statistics and results of email campaigns, and other marketing management.
    FatCow offers a library of hundreds of web icons that can be downloaded for free and added to a website.
  • Control Panel

    The control panel is expertly designed so that inexpert users can make the most of it. Inexperienced webmasters will have no problem navigating the easy to use click and drop website builder, while advanced users can take advantage of their own knowledge of coding or programming to enhance their sites.

    The FatCow design team can also assist in constructing a website, but the control panel is user friendly enough to remove any technological obstacles for anyone determined to build their own.
  • Pricing

    Unlike many of its competitors, FatCow prices its plans on a yearly rather than a monthly basis. Its hosting package at fifty-six dollars annually compares favorably with many competitors when you break down that price to its monthly component of less than five dollars. Even better, a client willing to commit to a two or three year plan can enjoy the even lower price of just forty-four dollars yearly. That commitment comes with a full money back guarantee during the first thirty days of service, so no one need worry about being stuck for a year with a service that doesn’t suit them.

    Additional options include security from SiteLock for thirteen dollars per year, the addition of a secure and encrypted connection and SSL certificate for an additional sixty dollars per year.
    Any user who chooses not to design their own site can get a quote for the services of a design team to create the site for them. Quotes vary depending on the desired features of the site to be designed, as well as whether the user needs ongoing maintenance and webmaster services, or only the original design.
  • Customer Support

    The “Legendairy” tech support from the “Moo Crew” includes tech support around the clock:

    Tech support service representatives are available twenty-four horus a day, seven days a week, by phone, email, or instant chat online.
    The FatCow “Heifercratic Oath” promises an unprecedented level of individualized support for every client, including extensive training of tech support staff.
    Calls will be answered in less than one minute, and the crew pledges to resolve every tech issue during the first contact, with a follow-up initiated by the tech support crew to confirm that the issue was fully resolved.
    Additionally, new clients will receive a welcome call within their first week of membership, offering the chance to answer questions, and a customer experience survey to ensure that your experience is everything it should be.
  • Reliability

    The servers at FatCow provide secure and encrypted connections with daily backups and the option at any time to restore the site to a previous configuration. Backup power sources and high tech servers ensure the integrity of the data stored online, and ensure the uptime of the websites operating on the FatCow platform.

  • Fatcow Final Conclusion

    FatCow stands out from the herd with its green power, its outstanding customer service, and its long-term planning and pricing. With additional tools available at low costs, the FatCow platform can provide every service and tool necessary to host a successful business or personal website.
