    I hosted my websites on FireHost 2 months ago but I realized that they do not offer money back guarantee like other web hosting providers. FireHost packages are pricey. I find them to be costly when compared with their competitors. Low-prices and customer support are what I look for when I am hosting my online stores. They may have great hosting features and tools for Cloud computing, but the price is very high for me among things. Their prices start from $200 which is quite high for their secure cloud hosting (fully managed plan).
    The late payments are charged at 1.5% interest per month in addition to this.

    Before you buy FireHost packages it is important to note that once you pay them there is no way you can get your money back. Their hosting is expensive and unlike other web hosting providers they do not have pro codes or promotional offers to reduce their prices. If you can afford, their services are top-notch and unbeatable. The secure cloud hosting which comes with 1 processor, 1 protected IP Address and 1 GB Memory among other features is expensive at $ 200 per month. The sales team is very prompt when you are buying the packages but the support team is slow.

    Pricey
    Firehost prices are on the higher side although their cloud hosting servers are secure and reliable. They have high-performance servers which is good for my business. Their uptime is good and I have not had any hardware issues but the high cost is too restrictive for me although their services are secure for those who can afford.
    Their live chat support reps are slow at responding to problems and this can take several hours to get someone to help you. I would not recommend FastHost for those who require fast responses. I phoned them when my site was down for 24 hours but they did not solve the problem so I filled several tickets which were not acted upon for hours.

    Secure Hosting
    One of the things I like about this company is the security they provide for our data and applications. We had been hacked in the past when we hosted with GoDaddy so we decided to move all our websites to FastHost. They provide security for our company work and all the compliance requirements that make us relax and know that everything is taken care of. We also like the fact that we can cancel our service anytime because there are no contracts.
    The only thing that I can mention is about support. Live support at Firehost is slow and unreliable. For the 1 year I have been hosting with them, this service has been slackening. It is hard to get a support rep to attend to you on their live chat. They keep you on hold for a long time before you can get assistance.
