Outstanding Service From HostGator
I have been a HostGator customer for a number of years. Up until recently I have had two shared business accounts there, and have always been impressed by the service. Heck I was only paying ~$30 a month, but whenever I needed anything from the support group I was always made to feel like HostGator's biggest customer.
I just recently acquired a dedicated server for a new site (which will hopefully justify it in the next couple of months ). I was a little nervous about making the move, mainly because I have never managed anything other then some early Windows servers back in my "hands on" days at work.
The HostGator support & transfer team, along with the GREAT video tutorials HostGator makes available, made the move a snap. I spent a week or so going through the tutorials and familiarizing myself with my server and WHM (the managemnet interface which I had never used). When it came time for the move the HG transfer team was outstanding to work with. Immediately after the move I had a few questions regarding some standard practices on my server setup, and the support team was more than helpful.
HostGator just ROCKS. From the stable infrastructure, to the great equipment and affordable service, to one of the best support teams I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I am definitely looking forward to a long term partnership with HostGator as my business grows, and would recommend them to anyone!

A review from a VPS owner
I'm a owner of 50+ websites and I own a VPS and a (more or less) system administrator, at least I manage my own VPS and servers from a few people around the world.
So, this bring me a prespective of things that most users do not have. As a VPS owner I use my HostGator account to spread the hight load to the HostGator account on my heavy websites, and also because redundancy.
So, if you have a HostGator account for less than $10, and they offer you a Google Coupon that gives 50$ PLUS freebies on ther website, why not join?
Also, if you've a very bused server, you can count on HostGator. Dedicated 8 processors (or more?) capable of getting a digg front page (or a similar one on my country) and not spicking the load.
My VPS load comes from 6+ to 1+ thanks to HostGator and I don't have to pay much more for it.
So, you guys, are the best. Period.
Biggest Pro: Support
Biggest Con: 6
Hostgator is good!
Just got my account with them, for about 2 weeks. Used it for educational purposes, and everything has been going on really well. They also gave me a chance to try out their new IP routing(I think thats what its called) feature, where my actual server IP is from the US, while I actually have a UK IP address to my site. And the tech support is kicking ***!
Biggest Pro: Tech Support
HostGator Hosting Company is AWESOME!
After about 15 years of experience with hosting companies, I finally found the BEST Customer Service, and it's from HOSTGATOR! I'm fairly savy when it comes to the internet. But there are some things I need to rely upon from a hosting company. One for sure it the ability to talk to a live person when a problem pops up. Hostgator provides 24/7 people service. They are available for general questions and security issues. With all the new PCI requirements and problems imposed upon merchants from the credit card companies, it's a relief to know the Server Admins at Hostgator are there whenever I call! I truly appreciate their help, kindness and understanding when I call. Thank you HOSTGATOR, you are AWESOME!
Biggest Pro: technical support & customer service
Biggest Con: there are NO cons!
I just swapped from justhost and I love it. Nothing goes wrong. Everything seems to work great here. Zero downtime, very helpful customer support and they really know what they do.
Expensive host, but you always get what you pay
Biggest Pro: Reliable
Biggest Con: Customer support sometimes takes time to respond
First web host I've ever been happy with
Over the years I've gone through about 6 different website hosts. All of them have had their pros and cons. About 2 years ago I did some reasearch and signed up with HostGator on one of their reseller accounts. My primary interests were minimum email blacklisting from shared servers, decent support, maximum uptime, and reasonable speed at a good price. Well after two years I feel that these are exactly what I've gotten. On the rare occations that I've needed support they've been very useful and prompt. In two years I've never heven had a hicup in email or WWW delivery. If I had to describe them in one word it would be "troublefree", which makes my life easier since that is that much less support I have to provide for my customers. I don't see any reason I won't continue with them for many more years.
Biggest Pro: No BS. Stuff just works and support just helps.
Biggest Con: CPanel isn't the sexiest thing, but it works.
Best Host Ever!
Now i'm what i'd call a Career Nerd, If i'm not working on one of my sites i'm roped into working for someone else,es thats given me many time to see the differant host, etc that people use
Hostgator has consistently been the best, the speed, price and durability of the service coupled with helpful and polite support staff make dealing with Hostgator a real treat for webmasters!
Their new Shared Cpanel skin with cpu moniter is also great to avoid those dreaded "too much cpu useage" nightmares shared hosters have from time to time when some normally mundane script decides to drain more resources than the Nasa
It doesnt get any better than Hostgator
I have been hosting websites for over 5 years
I initially signed up with smaller hosts and had all sorts of downtime and reliability issues. One of my early hosts couldnt even reliably BILL ME. I had to remind them.
And then I found HOSTGATOR
Signup was easy (I even got a discount) and I have been with them for over 3 years hosting 20+ websties. They are VERY reliable and whenever I have had a problem - they solved it. Pricing is fair and their packages give you plenty of room to 'grow' your reseller hosting business.
Nobodys perfect (even Hosgator) but my experience with SEVERAL webhosts shows that they are at the very top of the game when it comes to reliable hosting at fair pricing with responsive helpdesk.
Fellas - it just dont get any better than this.
Two thumbs up for HostGator -
Biggest Pro: Reliable - fairly priced - solid helpdesk - room to grow
Biggest Con: website design is old and outdated
Great all round service and fast and reliable
Switched over from mydosty.com to these guys and they are brilliant and the first month at one cent is a great inticement. Have had several site hosted by these guys in the past and never had any down time. recommend to anyone who is hosting video content always find they can delivery pretty much a decent download speed. We are based in New Zealand and even this far away have no real problems apart from our local isp's getting the usual end of day bottlenecks. Also the live chat support is amazing this has helped me many times if needed suport whilst being away from office.
BRILLIANT best hosting company around plus real value for money
Biggest Pro: Service and uptime and nice Cpanel interface (i see they have upgraded recently)
Biggest Con: nothing really to moan about
Great host. The best overall is the customer support, especially the live support. The executives respond well and the token system works great. During the initial months of setting up my website, the customer support was very handy.The uptime is also great. I have never faced any problems with the server going down till now. I felt the pricing to be ok too with the first month being offered at 1 cent using the coupon and for the later months, the billing system works fine. Solving the tension of regular billing upgrades upon expiry. Also, the additional features included in the cpanel are awesome and quite handy.
Biggest Pro: Cool Support and uptime
Biggest Con: Occassional mysql processing speed
