FastComet has been exceptional and I couldn’t be happier. They have helped me with several issues on my sites. Just off the top of my head they’ve helped me with email, site speed, addressing issues that have popped up on analytics and webmaster tools. I’ve been very pleased with their support.
The technical service was simply great and fast. Even too fast! I started working on my new website on my vacation time, during the Christmas time, and I was assisted on a weekend evening during that period. I thought it was crazy when the customer service answered on the chat me instantly!
I took advantage of your support and I must say, it is the perfect one. It is very fast, servers reliability is incredible and dedicated servers are setup and configured very quickly. Honestly, you are particularly good for small and big websites!
FastComet’s service is the best I have seen of any host I have used. The technical staff are very knowledgeable and quick to respond. And they are patient, even when the problem was caused by something I did wrong. I haven’t needed them much lately because my site has been created and things are running smoothly now, but it’s great to know they are there to answer my questions.
FastComet never made me feel silly for asking questions and provided great resources to help me understand how to attract more people to my site. I was able to have complete creative control without being overwhelmed with too many question or options. Whenever I had a question or issue, I received a prompt reply with a solution! I can’t say enough good things!
I’ve been with FastComet 5 months, and have already recommended it to three friends who are now using FastComet’ service. They are very satisfied!
After the migration, we really experienced how well the support is – even when the questions considered our systems and not regarding the hosting itself. Therefore, after a short testing, we moved all of our projects to FastComet and we never regretted this decision.
We are really experiencing joy of God’s blessing in our mission. Without our service, thousands of young people would not have found good education and hope for the future. We are grateful for the many volunteers and donors helping us in our mission. FastComet is one of them.
I have been SOO happy with FastComet. I am totally tech-unsavvy and the customer service that FastComet provides far exceeds my past service provider (on which I also paid double the price for monthly service!). As soon as anything goes wrong, or isn’t working right, I know I can easily get my site fixed with their help.

Commonly Asked Questions

In short, Lumen is built for micro services and fast REST API’s, not so much for user-facing applications (although it can be used for anything). Lumen has the same foundation as Laravel, and glues together most of the same top components (3rd party and Laravel’s own components). As such, front end niceties like Bootstrap and Elixir and the authentication bootstrap and sessions don’t come enabled out of the box, and there’s less flexibility for extending and changing the bootstrap files. However, unlike many other micro-frameworks, Lumen lets you tap into the full power of Laravel’s features, such as routing, dependency injection, the Eloquent ORM, migrations, queued jobs, and even scheduled commands.
The name “Lumen” is a play on the “Illuminate” components that Laravel utilizes and it also continues the tradition of “light” based names. The Illuminate components are the individual pieces of the Laravel framework such as database, cache, queue, etc.
Lumen is targeted at micro services – small, loosely-coupled components that usually support and enhance a core project, so it’s more likely to be used when you’re separating out a single high-use piece of your application. With Lumen your API will support at least twelve hundred (1200) requests in a range of 10 seconds with 10 simultaneous requests. This great speed makes it the perfect candidate for implementing a RESTful API in it, and the best, it is completely easy!
Lumen is not as configurable as the Laravel framework. The performance improvement is achieved by taking away some of the flexibility of the framework in terms of configuration and amending the default boot process. For example, it is not possible to override any framework “bootstrappers” to drastically alter how the framework is constructed. Also, unlike Laravel, Lumen is not intended to be used with additional Laravel “packages” such as debug bars, CMS systems, etc.
FastCloud provides the tools to easily deploy, manage and scale your Lumen applications in the cloud. It comes hosted on our blazing fast servers, world-class datacenters and network. The Composer, Node.js and Gulp extensions are available to help you build faster with Laravel.
