Pros

  • Very fast hosting
  • Accurate, honest limitations of features
  • Competitive pricing

Cons

  • No live support options
  • Essential features only, with a few perks
  • One-week free trial is shorter than most

The Verdict

Fozzy doesn’t offer in-depth support services or any live support options. Their trial period is also quite short compared to most hosts’ 30-day policies. However, the features they do offer are generous and priced fairly. For individuals, business site owners, and Forex traders, Fozzy offers basic plans that fit the bill.
