HostGator Description

HostGator is a hosting company that was founded in 2002 by CEO Brent Oxley and is one of the biggest hosting providers in the U.S, with over 5,000 under management. Their service is used by over 150,000 customers, and the company was recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in America in 2008.

HostGator Detailed Overview

Whether you’re a hobbyist, a professional that manage clients, or an Internet marketer, you probably want reliable and affordable web hosting for a website. In this article, I’m going to go through all the important things in a hosting company and see if Host Gator can deliver on those benefits.

Let’s talk about what you get with their service. Host Gator runs under linux hosting and uses cPanel hosting, which is the best control panel and usually the industry standard provided by hosting companies. Their service comes with many tools to help webmasters such as the site builder web designer, the ability to back up your cPanel (incase anything goes wrong). They also support PHP 5, SSH, SSI, Cron jobs, Curl, Python, Ruby On Rails, Front Page and more. If you don’t know what these are, you can read through their features page for a quick explanation.

I was happy to see that you get the Fantastico script installer which will install many popular scripts with a few clicks. And speaking of scripts, you get unlimited MySQL Databases. This is very important for marketers that use many scripts for their sites. My previous web host allowed only three, and I was forced to pay additional fees to use more. I also found that the inclusion of Curl and Cron were incredibly helpful to me as I recently installed a few scripts that used those functions.

While they have a site builder to help you build your site, it’ll probably go unused as most people have their own preferred tool to build their sites. The support of FrontPage is great as you can simply upload your extensions to add pages to your site. For email features, you get unlimited POP3 accounts, the ability to access your mail online, a basic autoresponder (non sequential), spam assassin filtering and mail forwarding.

But what if you want to add forums, blogs and portals? HostGator supports many popular open source programs such as Wordpress, Drupal, phpnn, PHPnuke which can be installed with one click. Finally, you also get AWStats and Webalizer to view your web stats. These are pretty standard with most web hosts, and most people will use their own tools anyway.

But what kind of plans do they offer? The cheapest shared hosting plan is the Hatchling package. It costs $4.95 a month and comes with unlimited disk space and bandwidth. However, it is only limited to hosting 1 domain. This plan is probably the best choice for hobbyists.

The next is the Baby package. It has the same features of the Hatchling package, but you get unlimited domains. As an Internet marketer, you’ll probably have multiple domains for landing pages, a few personal websites, as well as sites for your business. I personally use this plan, and it is very economical at $7.95 a month.

The Business plan is the most expensive at $12.95 and comes with unlimited disk space, bandwidth and domains. You also get your own toll-free number, dedicated IP and private SSL making this a great package for marketers with ecommerce sites.

Let’s move on to performance. HostGators host their sites on high quality Dual Xeon Serves in Texas. They offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee. From looking at independent studies, their uptime is closer to the 98% range. However, I have never personally experienced my site being down so far.

Next is the issue of customer service. I have to rave about HostGator’s customer service. You get toll free 24/7/365 support and their staff are well trained. They were very courteous, patient and committed into solving my problem when I got on the phone with them. I had a problem with installing a script, and the support helped me figure it out even though it took more than 20 minutes.

I found their ticket system better for the more technical questions as you can direct the questions to the proper department. Rather than getting a reply in 1-2 days like my previous web hosting providers, I’ve gotten responses as fast as 10 minutes, although it’ll usually takes longer than that. If you think your problem is unique, you can also head to their forums and ask for their help. I found the members of the forum helpful and quick to respond to my posts.

HostGator Reputation

Overall, HostGator is probably the best web host I’ve used so far. I’ve used 5 different web hosting providers, and they were either too overpriced or had many limitations in terms of bandwidth, domains and limited features. What really makes a hosting company stand out, however, is the customer support, and I have never experienced support as greater than HostGator’s from any other company, hosting or not.

Another thing I like about this company is that they decided to go green and use wind powered energy for their shared and reseller servers. I think that companies like this that use up a lot of energy should take responsibility to be environmentally conscious. Their decision to go green made me lean more towards using their service than other quality web host providers. In final, I can’t recommend this company enough – their service is cheap, easy to use, quick, and their support is excellent.

Fantastic Site For Get Good Web Host Service

In my opinion, HostGator is one of the best sites on the Internet that offers the most widely used web hosting service plus they offer good prices Plan accessible to everyone.

HostGator offers a control panel for users that enable them to easily configure their site and this one of the best reasons why I chose HostGator.

In addition to one of the reasons why I chose are also provided excellent customer service to it's customers, which

In the end, I want to say that the period in which they have used HostGator where I enjoyed many of them did not find any technical problems with it it's a great company and I have told my friends about it

Best and most affordable Website Hosting

HostGator is one of the most used website hosting service. It offers a really affordable price for premium services, in fact this is the cheapest website hosting service that I've ever find in the internet. It uses cPanel for the website configuration, cPanel is a very practical tool that can be easily used to configure your website, this is one of the top reason why I choose HostGator. 24/7 customer care is also provided by HostGator. I greatly recommend using HostGator for people who likes to save money and also to those who wants to set up their website.

The best hosting service

HostGator is one of the most trusted hosting service and that's why thousands of site owners, including me, uses their services every year. The quality of their services is impeccable, and great support. The main idea is that if you are planning to start an online business, or any kind of website HostGator should be your first choice. I used HostGator for years and never had any complaints and everything worked smoothly. Also their site building tool is very easy to use, you really don't need to have any programming skills at all. I highly recommend it, if you want a high quality hosting service.

Great service at an affordable price

I used to have a freelancing site hosted by HostGator and the quality of service given from them is really fine; minimal complications, mild stress-work, and worth the money. Before I ever canceled their hosting service and abandoned my website, I was actually proud with HostGator and their dedication to make site hosting as affordable as possible for everybody.

In other words, HostGator is an awesome recommendation if you're planning to host your own website(s).

Good web hosting service

A few months ago I registered a website in hostgator, and the truth is a web hosting site, which I have not had any problems in all these months, offers different plans to the users, but the best is the baby plan, and which it provides unlimited storage and greater speed of loading web pages and also has no limits accommodation as web pages are concerned.

I think the truth is one of the best in quality and price.

Awesome hosting company

Last month I created an another website using hostgator. I bought the domain and selected the baby plan from hostgator which is at a very reasonable price. From then onwards I did not face any problem with the website. Since I have some idea of working with website , I know how to handle c- panel and got started with wordpress , sql database and lots more. But for novice it is somewhat difficult , but thanks to the tutorials available online with which you can control c-panel easily. I was really amazed by the variety of fronts , customizable designs that they supported . And their round the clock customer service is fine.

Good customer service

I really feel so lucky about it. HostGator is really affordable, good customer service and widely used among many users who tend to post a server. It is also reliable and even provides a 24/7 customer service if questions needed to be answered or help. It allows many popular coding and is very simple along with fonts and styles

please like it it's so much helpful.

It's pretty good

Now, I used Host Gator provides good service, I used their service for 3 months as a website host. I was pretty much satisfied with it. So, to cut a long story short, it provides different fonts we can customize. And it's available for a very reasonable price as well which brings me to recommend this!

Amazing Service

HostGator has gave me a great experience for my website sor far! I've recently decided to open a domain and start a blog-tutorial such for viewers to enjoy. HostGator is really affordable, good customer service and widely used among many users who tend to post a server. It is also reliable and even provides a 24/7 customer service if questions needed to be answered or help. It allows many popular coding and is very simple along with fonts and styles. I have been using it for a few months now and no problems have been indicated so far. I recommend this service to people who want to open their own domain!

Good services provided

I have been using Hostgator for my website, I bought a domain name and hosted my website with them, and I can say that the hosting service is good especially with the control panel; you have anything you need to start right away: WordPress, SQL database and more. but I prefer not to buy the domain name with them. Otherwise it's a good service.

Good performance and bad customer service

My experience with HostGator web site started very badly when engaging the services of Hospitalit and I had complications of communication and service. I could not make contact with the staff responsible for support. The performance of my page was very satisfying but serious communication problems kept occurring when I need support or clarification of doubts. I firmly believe that if they improve the communication service personnel with the client giving careful attention and dedicated they would achieve to put on the face of it's customers a big smile of satisfaction and may qualify as a good service to stay with and to be counted among the best sites providing hosting service.

HostGator Is Okay

I purchased the HostGator Baby Plan on a monthly basis about three months ago and so far I'm okay with it. I'm still learning how to use the CPanel because it seems like almost everything has to be done using it. I like the idea that I can integrate my WordPress theme with HostGator. Although my other hosting plan doesn't require me to constantly use the CPanel I can work on my blog with much ease.

HostGator has gotten lots of reviews from internet marketers so I will continue to host my site there and with time hopefully I can become more confident with it. Time will tell.

Bad Support

I am a hosting solution. I own my own hosting company, and when I was starting out, one of the first hosts I tried for re-selling was HostGator because it looks so attractive. The do have a lot of nice perks, but the support staff takes WEEKS to responds to URGENT tickets; I had my own domain before I purchased re-seller from hostgator, it took a week to transfer the domain to them, and then packages that require your domain be pointing to their servers did NOT work, and when I tried contacting them about it, I did not receive a reply until after the next billing date(which I canceled. ) - this was when they had that long period of downtime(which is a reason not to use them in itself) a few months back.

They then would not refund my payment though I requested it 2 weeks into the service, they did not process the request, so they refused to refund me, thankfully paypal fixed that.

I do not recommend this Host, specially for people new to hosting.

Pretty much the same

It's basically like every other paid host. Gives everything every other paid hosts gives you but with one difference, they have some really good and cheap coupons. One more disadvantage that they have is they will spam your email even after your subscription has ended, and it cannot be stopped..

Very good and inexpensive

I used this to host my website that I used to post my animations on. It was very good and very reliable. Altogether it was better then any free web hoster because it has a lot more traffic and is a better use of your website or business.

Very Efficient Hosting Services

I was referred to HostGator via a website, but had previously read reviews of their great service. I currently subscribe to the Baby plan which allows me unlimited hosting. Since opening an account, I have found the Customer Service to responsive, but most of all, the overall service is very good.

Hostgator is crap

Last year I ordered Hostgator Baby Plan for my wordpress blog. Everything is cool for 2 months. After 2 months my site started appearing on first page of google and traffic to my site is increased. Suddenly they suspended my account for using excessive resources. But the actual traffic is just 700 UV/day. They boasted in advertisement as they offering UNLIMITED Bandwidth. Their support sucks. I highly recommend you to stay away from them.

It good but it cost is high monthly

Host Gator enables you to host websites on this site. It's also easy to use as the interface uses cpanel, making it user friendly. However, there is a high monthly cost and they will verify your domain and after that you just give them login details to start hosting. They provide 24*7 customer support facility. If you have any problems they solve it very quickly.

Hostgator, not a simple hosting

It does not need lots of words, a unique word explains what this site is: Awesome!

I've been using hostgator for 3 years and for me it is the best site offering a hosting service, low price, great communication with the support, very nice graphic and simple to use! enjoy! :)

It provides hosting facility to the website

It has provided the hosting facility to the various domains in fact millions of users are using this website to host. I used this website and they provided me low cost hosting to me. Registration process for the hostgrator is easy, they will verify your domain and after that you just give them login details to start hosting. They provide 24*7 customer support facility. If you have any problems they solve it very quickly.

It has it's ups and downs

I used to have a website with hostagor not much time ago. It's interface is user-friendly, very easy to use because they use cPanel. The only drawback is the high monthly cost. Someone who is just starting their business can not afford it. Their customer service is efficient and simple.

The total reliability of the service is pretty good as such their up-time is far better than the other services out there. The one thing I don't much care for is when they do go down for some reason, they are down longer than most. However, since this happens so rarely, I can live with the inconvenience for a short time.

Host Gator is good enough for me!

Recently I've gotten into creating and selling e- commerce websites. I use Host Gator to host them.

So what's good about Host Gator?

Their customer service! Host Gator has 24/7 live chat and each time I've had a problem , it was dealt with quickly and professionally . No more waiting around and being put on hold only to be told that you should email the company and wait around MORE for a response.

If you have an issue with one of your websites, don't waste time googling it! Start a live chat. Usually a rep will be with you within like 5- 10 minutes.

Superb... for affiliates

In the early years I truly believe Gator was cream of the crop, in most all aspects of hosting..

Most are unaware of the fact they were bought out by a major conglomerate, and yes the service suffered greatly due to it.

Do the words "down time" ring a bell?

From my perspective, the most disheartening aspect of this, is that affiliates continue to relentlessly flog them for the all glorious one penny deals. In hopes of large commissions from newbies that wouldn't know a good host, from a bad one, if it slapped them upside the head.

As a former long time HG customer, I truly wish them no ill will, only hope one day they will fall back to become a remnant of "what once was".

Pretty Good Service

Although I need to pass their verification process twice (as I am not from the U. S. and I don't have a passport nor a driver's license yet) it is all worth it. I'm impressed how fast they answered my tickets. Hostgator may not be one of cheapest web hosting companies but certainly they are one of the best.

Customer Support is 2nd to None!

I have had HostGator for well over 2 years now, and whenever there is any issue whatsoever, their support team is patient, understanding and proficient. They make sure that I not only understand what the problem really is, but they also make sure I know how to fix it, right then and there. And if they don't know, they get someone who does. I have NEVER had a problem they could not solve for me. I know that's hard to believe. That is one of the main reasons I have stayed with them.

My Experience

I have use this company for awhile and it isn't bad but I believe there are a couple of major stand outs. The price is a bit expensive and you don't have a lot of control to customize your website. This may just be me because I used it for a gaming clan but a free cheaper more customizable company is enjin. I rated this a C because I was happy with this company at the beginning and now they haven't provided as much help.

Quite good

I've only used HostGator's web hosting once and was quite satisfied with their services. There were some load issues with the site (taking a while to load, if it loaded at all), however their support was very professional. One of their support agents responded to my ticket in roughly half an hour and the issue was fixed later that day. I have no experience with any of their other services, but the shared web hosting is definitely good from my past experiences with Hostgator.

Not 'THE BEST' but has some good sides

As it's pretty cheap- I'd rate it pretty nice in comparison to the price being charged. Barely ANY technical issues, which is another great part of their service. Gator's support is really, by that- I mean REALLY helpful. I'd happily recommend it to people who are new in web hosting due to their seriously friendly support & pretty good service.

Great Company

I had a website with hostgator for about 2 years. It was a great quality website. I don't think it ever had any downtime that was caused by them. Their support is great and they are just overall a great company. I highly recommend them if you need a web host.

Unbeatable Technical Support

After using HostGator for 4 years, I have never been worried for downtimes and technical help. Their servers are running in good speed and they use latest cPanel which is really good. They sometimes have promotional offers that attract me to buy more hosting and domains. Even though they are overselling the servers but still it’s not an issue since they are not having downtimes. All of their hosting plans are really good and have an attractive price that is affordable. Also the price of VPS plans is best in the business. I would say that HostGator is doing a wonderful job to serve the customers in hosting business.

Inexpensive, helpful, but hard to use

Overall this is a really good way to host your domain. I got hosting for $0.01 because I wanted to set up a website to promote my IM product. It was inexpensive and gave really good directions on how to use the SMTP on email services. However it may just be me or my domain service, but I could not publish the website with the domain name. I had to use the link from the website builder. This may just be me, but I couldn't figure out from the site. Also I could not get a hold of the live chat support.

Very Nice Hosting

The People at hostgator hooked me up with a nice server for only $219 (plus tax) a month. Although I have seen Hosting for less they were not as good as hostgator. With 10 TB of bandwidth I have more than enough Speed To host my server. I Also loved their 4 GB ram they give you as it is very good for the price of the package.

Pretty good site

This is a pretty good site, actually it's better than most of the hosting websites I've tried. Many make it hard to understand, but Host Gator actually really makes it pretty simple and it is not super expensive like some web host sites can be. There is room for improvements, but go with this and you will surely be a satisfied customer.

Best hosting ever

To be quite honest, since I am still in college I did not have any idea on what hosting is. We have this project which is to create a database and thesis together. Our teacher requires us to host it online. A lot of my fellow classmates told me to host on different hosting sites. I didn't have any idea so I searched what hosting is. And then I come up with this. My fellow classmates used cheaper hosting and they have a lot of problems on it. While on host gator hosting, yes they had problems but they resolved it quickly. Not much change needed in coding once it will be live. Support is very good and service is very good.

Best webhosting , lower price

Well , I bought a hosting a month ago and I am very satisfied. The support is very helpful and I am happy with it. Anyway I recommend you buying this hosting since they are the cheapest and provide good quality. I have a wordpress site working with my hostgator affliate links and I am making 100$ for each sale ! I am very happy with this!

Reliable and Scaleable

I have been using their shared server (baby/business plans)service since 2010 and have not had many issues with them.

The support is well staffed and almost always can come up with an actionable answer.

As your business grows you need to ensure profitability goes with it as the shared server service will start to place limitations on your support and back end functionality. Namely hosting backups will be capped and server stats will no longer be available.

The other niggle with shared server, is that you cannot use secure email, I have tried many times and they informed that this is a service restricted to higher paying users.

This is why you need to switch over to dedicated servers as soon as you can, to ensure the safe running of your online enterprise.

Overall they are a great service that rightly justifies their popularity just be sure to understand the limitations of whatever plan you decided to go with.

Not the best, but

Not the best Webhosting site, but good enough, and they are truly eating up other hosts. The main problem is the long wait time at the Live Chat, and I waited 2 days to get my domain, and this is not good for me. Website often slows down, and they are giving basic protections for money.

But otherwise, great site, with great offers:)

A little expensive for me

HostGator is the best web hosting service I used. It's interface is user-friendly, very easy to use because they use cPanel. The only drawback is the high monthly cost. Someone who is just starting their business can not afford it. Their customer service is efficient and simple.

I am very happy with HostGator, is an excellent investment.

I advise you to try it !

HostGator is in my opinion the best company you can find for purchasing host and domain name for your web site.

I say this because I have been a user of this platform for a long time, but for my own personal reasons I closed the website. The reason for closing the website was that I can't manage it by my self.

So I advise you to buy it, for that they offer more for your website.

One of the best hosting companies out there

Everyone is searching for hosting solutions on the internet. Your search ends with Hostgator. These guys offer excellent service. Good and intuitive user interface. Their site builder tool is also very newbie friendly.

Customer support can be a issue at times. With that overlooked. I doubt if there is anything else that goes against them.

If you want a good, cheap host, Hostgator is your answer.

Great web host

I can safely tell you that HostGator is the best web host currently out there. They offer hosting and domains for a great price. Hosting is extremely fast and with very minimal downtime. Hosting has every feature I need and it's very user friendly.

I have been using their services for every single one of my forums for three years now and it has been impeccable for all this time.

I don't regret using their services and they're awesome. I recommend HostGator to every internet marketer.

Hostgator is boss

In past I struggled a bit with some webhosts for their poor support and slow server speeds though they were very renowned Hosts. But after struggling a bit I moved to hostgator and everything went to normal.

They are quick to solve any issue and their servers are quite faster than others.

Hosting like a Gator!

I have owned and been on countless sites that use this hosting, it is pretty cheap for what you get from it, as you get fast speed and a good amount of storage and it's very reliable as well!

I have been using them for about 2 years now and I have nothing bad at all to say about this, besides that it is really great!

One of the best osting companies around

I have experience in hosting for more than 3 years and have tried more than 20 hosting companies. Hostagator is a real leader in the hosting industry. First of all their services are brilliant, fast, secure and for reasonable prices. Support is the best in the whole industry, very fast and good trained, also very polite. However there are a few downsides for this company. If you use little bit more resources than average user with html website you will be warned for CPU use and might be moved to a more expensive plan, also for every offense your hosting account will be suspended and you have to talk with support. Anyway this is really good hosting for a reasonable price.

HostGator is the best

I really had to choose the best hosting company, because hosting is the heart of an online business. So if there's any problem with the heart itself, then it means business failure.

When choosing for a hosting company, I had to go with the best.

So basically what I thought was a famous hosting company won't let you down. And when it comes to famous, HostGator is first on the list. I did more research on HostGator and I found that many people loved their services.

And then I opted for HostGator. It has now been more than 4 years that I am in the online business with my website and I am still with HostGator. I have never encountered any problems with HostGator.

I highly recommend HostGator to anyone who is looking for a host for their domain.

Hostgator is awesome

I've been using them for 7 years now and I can't complain of anything. They provide a great service and their support is top-notch. I've used other companies in the past but Hostgator is definitely the best one. All my sites are currently on their servers. I only use it for hosting though. I buy my domains from a different place.

Best and Cheapest I have found

This is one of the most cheapest hosting sites I can find. It provides amazing services and support. I found out about it when I needed a Server to learn how to use Database from a youtube video. They have exceptional services and have not let me down ever. The servers are never down so far that I have been on. They never let me down and I can keep on using their hosting for my training in databases.
