    Fatcow any good?

    I was looking for a webhost with adwords credit, and cheap.

    When I went to Bluehost and Hostgator, the more well-known sites they had $50 adwords credit each but couldn't get their price down to less than 58$ a year. With Fatcow seems to be $44 a year and also have $50 adwords credit.

    Does somebody know their reliability? I was searching google and the host seems to be a new person in town and that might be a problem.

    Preferably I was searching for $20 a year webplans but I can't seem to find one with adwords credit. I want to use the adwords to drive quick traffic to a new site. I am not sure should I go for the adwords credit+ hosting or hosting seperate + adwords seperate. The keywords I'm gonna use only have 1,000-10,000 max visitors a month. If the credit is only valid for a limited time than I'd maybe better off with a both seperate.

    1. You're allowed to use one Google voucher, for one new account.

    2. $50 will not last you long at all with Adwords.

    3. Fatcow is stable from what I see, but utterly slow.

    I have found lots of good review about this company..
    But I will still suggest you to confirm its reviews on WHT.

    Be aware you are allowed to use one credit per one credit card. So make sure you have never used that before and if you have multiply accounts with web hosting company you need to understand that you can use only one credit

    WHT stands for webhostingtalk.com, just in case anyone is confused.

    FatCow has received mixed reviews. I never used it, but I've got a couple of mates that have and they're not really happy with the outcome. They got their website shutdown for using " too much bandwidth". Any type of hosting service that claims that you're going to receive " UNLIMITED BANDWIDTH" for a cheap price, isn't good. It's up to what your content and amount of traffic you're going to get. If it's just a personal website,than go for it.But if you're aiming for business, no way.

    FatCow is good, one my client is using it. IMO it also depends on individual experiences.

    Indeed it does. It also depends on one's expectations, requirements and tracking methods. The vast majority of people have sites that they rarely visit, and do not monitor in any way. They'll be happy as long as the site works when showing it to their friends. Others have sites that their livelihood depends on. It's expensive to have such a site down, and they'll keep a much more closer eye on things, being really interested in how the service lives up to the promises.
