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

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

Fraud

Don't get stuck with these money hungry bastards! My business partner used them before I came along. The website was hard to navigate and lame. I took it over a year ago and have gotten compliments since. I took over paying for the domains to make it simple. Today fat cow charged me over $500 for webhosting even I have been doing it for over a year. I am probably going to let the domains go, so I don't have to deal with fatcow again.

AVOID FatCow and their shyster billing

I too was attracted by their wind-powered server farms. However they have repeatedly proven to be shysters in billing. (Got charged nearly EIGHT times the *currently* published amount for renewal and they were very underhanded about it). Never again- do yourself a favor and AVOID AVOID AVOID.

Annoyed at issues caused by Cloud upgrade

Working in Software business I know how difficult it is to always ensure upgrades do not screw up existing clients, but it seems that an upgrade (no idea when) broke a link to button that allowed clients send me emails with queries, it stopped working & i had to contact Fatcow & register issue which they resolved immediatly, tells me they knew about it already, i have no idea what stress this issue has caused my patients/clients and now have to manually go back through the log to check every entry & contact each client, what a pain especially when they knew the issue existed
