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!

Love it

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.

Strongly recommended.

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 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

Best Service

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

Over 7 Months and Never Had to call Support

Last spring I moved from a VPS i had for 8 year with OLM to a dedicated server with Hostgator. I had assisted with my first server transfer to OLM, but this time I was all on my own and It could not have gone more smooth. The dedicated server has CPanel, documentation was really easy to find, and no minor hangups from weird config issues. Since day one we are at 100% uptime and i get .12 avg response and low loads. I had hoped that I was gonna be able to get something for about 125-150, but at 179 i was paying on $4 more than I was for an old, old machine with OLM.

On rating would be all 10 but havent needed support or customer service so i gave those 9, and for price, you always want it for a little less.

Biggest Pro: Perfect for the average web developer.
Biggest Con: Honestly, server or support hasnt been tested yet

Happy again!

I am pleased to report that Hostgator has lived up to its reputation as a top hosting solution. Support has redoubled efforts to solve the problems our domain was having, and made a thorough investigation of the possible causes for the hacking attack. Good one!

It's hard to remain at odds with Hostgator support when their top tech guy reaches out to us in such a professional and helpful manner, even offering compensation for the troubles we were experiencing.

And it's pleasing to know that I can once again safely go back to recommending Hostgator to friends and businesses.
