Price Value

FatCow truly offers a FAT account, including all the features we've come to expect from an established web host like unlimited domains, disk space, bandwidth, to name a few.

You can also expect to receive search engine ad credits($100) and social networking ad credits($50), which aren't as widely offered as you might expect. These credits go a long way to offset the cost!
