FatCow Review

Our Score


FatCow is a popular company with a very unique name! FatCow has been assisting clients with their websites since 1998. A major draw card for this company is that they offer hosting plans that allow personalisation. Why pay for disk space or bandwidth you are never going to use? FatCow asked the same question and decided, no one should! This company is one of the most customisable web host services in Australia.

Hosting Technology

Choosing a VPS plan gives you increased control over your site when you are assigned a private or semi-private server.


FatCow decided to make their plans simple. The Shared Hosting Plan costs $9.49 per month, however discounts are offered if you sign up for an extended period, up to 30 months. The VPS Hosting Plan comes in at $24.99 per month and The Dedicated Hosting Plan charges $149.99 per month. The majority of clients choose to go with the Shared Hosting Plan as storage space and bandwidth are scaled by usage. There is no need to fear that you will not be given enough space as Fat Cow verifies that 99.95% of clients are satisfied with the space and bandwidth afforded with the most basic plan.

The servers that store FatCow websites are state of the art and include a back up generator in case of an outage. Daily backups are performed to ensure all websites can be restored in the event of data loss. These top of the line servers are monitored around the clock to ensure they are functioning to the best standard and that any issues are resolved quickly and effectively.

Now that you are assured your website will be well looked after, what about the website’s builder? FatCow has an amazing team waiting to help you with any issue big or small. The team is standing by 24/7 via phone, live chat or email. If you’d like to solve an issue yourself or simply increase your building skills there are user guides and tutorials to accompany you on your journey to the best website you could possibly build.
