The best experience I had with them was when I first signed up. From then on, it's been an absolute nightmare.

Horrible customer service, servers are not updated

I signed up for fatcow's shared hosting plan and was really disappointed with their servers and support. My website, that was working fine with other hosting providers stopped working on their servers. I spent hours debugging it and later realized it was not worth it and that I could get better services elsewhere. When I asked for a refund during the 30 day money back guarantee, they told me they will deduct $15 for the domain even after I told them I don't want the free domain that comes with the registration.

Email Servers Past End of Life

Fatcow is still running Exchange 2007. If you are a Fatcow Exchange client, you will not be able to use Outlook 2016. You have to use the old OWA client as will. You are also limited to 2 GB per mailbox. Customer support is farmed out to Manila.

Site Lock Service is their little secret rip off

I agree with so many reviews that this company used to be very good. I believe they went public so now all they care about is their greedy little profit motive. site lock is their new secret weapon to screw you and your site. You will soon be getting calls about malware on your site no matter what and they will extort money from you and take your site offline unless you pay. Run as far as you can from these people and especially site lock. I know I dealt with site lock management and they don't want anything on their website to educate users only highly trained salesman to take your money. You stink FAT COW

Onlt there to sell you services,not support

Their sales person sold me a $180 package that I was never able to use. The chat just send you to buy additional items no person is ever there. They gave no response ( not even kiss off) to 4 emails. Worst rip off on the internet. Go Godaddy at least they answer their inquiries

Don't do it

Don't expect help with your website -- it will cost you dearly and you will get a call from someone in another time zone at a time that you did not schedule. You will spend hundreds, meanwhile, your website will look the same
