    I've had a decent experience with Fatcow. I think it's pretty fast.

    I usually stick to smaller hosts though, such as Fazewire.

    I have had a good experience with FatCow so far and received good timely tech support as well. This was for shared hosting services and the amount of down time has been minimal.

    I have nothing buy good things to say. Reliable and well priced. However, my sites are hardly "taxing" on their resources.

    I bought a site from someone who was on Fatcow - and not only was it the slowest thing I've ever seen (I was moving it to my own servers as soon as I took possession) - but a few years beforehand, they gave him a really hard time on storage and expansion. That's all I know about them but I thought they were one of the worst hosts I'd ever seen, and I've seen lots.

    They are good. FatCow is part of the iPowerWeb network which owns iPowerWeb, iPage, FatCow, and some green hosting website.

    I recommend them for grey/white operations only.

    I was searching a new host recently and reading lots of Fatcow review. So far most review were positive and the price is very cheap.

    However, you should consider that they use their own dashboard panel. I am a cpanel fans, but If it isn't a problem for you then you may go for it

    I don't want to pile on after my last post on this subject - since I have nothing against Fatcow. But I was researching a different hosting subject today, and came across a very lengthy post from a former Fatcow employee in 2009 - whose comments about their operations were eye-opening, and probably worth reading before you go with Fatcow. I don't have the specifics on where he posted (it came up in a long list of searches) - but if you do a search on BHW for Fatcow, I'm sure it will come up.
