Anybody else use FatCow Hosting?

by Host-Master / September 28, 2009 10:45 AM PDT

Switched over to fatcow after reading a review at Best Damn Web Hosts and I'm extremely satisfied. Got a nice discount with one of their links. The install central is the best thing I've seen with any host.
Installs anything you want with a click of a button. Forums, photogalleries, shopping carts, blogs, ect. Check it out if you need a new host.

new hosting

Good to hear from an unbiased source. I need new hosting and FatCow looks promising. I'm sick to death of Canaca and their woefully pathetic tech support and customer service.

Never tried fat cow hosting before. But it could be great, like what they claim. For me, as a rule of thumb, I don't go with hosting companies without 5-10 or more years of establishment.

Then, I search for other comments about it. They could be a "fly by night" hosting company you know.

Beware of their CS, though...

I just went through a month of customer service hell with the Fat Cow technical "support" team because my outgoing e-mails were not being delivered properly. (They showed up in "Sent" and weren't going to recipients' Spam or Junk mail -- just were disappearing.) They were never able to properly diagnose or fix the problem. I eventually had to buy and install a new version of Outlook in order to get it working again (despite the fact that the former version had been working fine for four months prior to failing, and the fact that everyone else in the company is using the former version with no problems). Techs repeatedly asked me to go through the same steps, check settings, said they would ?escalate the problem,? and then got back to me with the same advice as before. They were not able to remote in to see exactly what was going on. When I finally snapped and insisted that a manager call me? he never did.

A couple ratings sites have given them C or C- based on customer service, and I would tend to agree with that assessment. Although their control panel and tools are easy to work with and fine, god forbid you have any problems you can't solve yourself.

Never had any real issues. The control panel is really easy to use.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
