HostGator Review

I think Host Gator may be one of the best hosts out there. I am currently using their shared hosting plan and it's just amazing the amount of disk space and bandwidth they offer. For under $10 I get 600gb of storage and 6,000gb of bandwidth per month. Thats just crazy, its like a whole hard drive of storage basically. They even send you a reminder to pay your monthly payment. Sometimes I forget and they still let me pay when it was like 10 days after the due date. If it gets too late though, you need to pay a fee for a late fine. As of now, I am running two websites and both work flawlessly. Once you login, the control panel is simple and easy to use. There are also tons of other features like PHP support, mySQL, email, SSI, CGI, you name it they have it. I have been with Host Gator for about two years now and I have never experienced ANY down time. The download speed is also very fast. Since my Internet connection has a limited upload speed, I cant comment on how their upload speeds are. There is also a Live Chat/Support which Ive used before. I thought that service was ok. I do not remember it being much help when trying to resolve a problem I had though. Other than that, I think this host would be great for anyone. It is reliable and it gets the job done.

Biggest Pro: speed, pricing, hardly any downtime
Biggest Con: not really a con but their live customer support isnt that good

Best of the best

I was in the market for a new web host, I had looked around for a few weeks and finally came across HostGator which had an awesome deal with a coupon for the first month. I have now been using HostGator for over 2 years. I host several sites and they are always up and running. When ever I am having any issues the tech support is always there to help me out and have a great knowledge bank. I’m quite happy with the pricing as well, $7.95 a month for 600gb and 6tb of bandwidth. The one thing that annoys me is the lack of news updates when there are plan/price changes.

Biggest Pro: Reliability, price, service
Biggest Con: Lack of news updates about plan/price changes

Very Pleasing Hosting

Its funny that I noticed this site is hosted by my host. I have a few sites hosted by this company and a few sites by other hosts. I recently had problems with my newest site and the hostgator people went into my site and fixed it so it would work right. I was lost and they found me. This isn't the type of service which is listed when you sign up. You just find out about this extra help if you have a problem. I love the online chat and use it often. I have never experienced any negativity. Great hosting and Great Service-The truth is just the truth.

Biggest Pro: Customer Service
Biggest Con: I don't own it

Host Gator Is A Solid Host

I have hosted many websites at Host Gator for years now. I find them to be a reliable host, excellent customer service, almost no downtime and fast servers.

I like their control panel, the ease at which any novice can install and maintain scripts. Plus their smtp systems complements my need for high priority response and effective communication with my clients.

The pricing is excellent, and although it is not the cheapest, it is worth every penny.

Biggest Pro: Fast, reliable and modern servers.

First unsure but it turned out great

If you see Hostgators price tag you will always wonder if their products will work out for you or not - especially since everyone expects uptime. We gave it a go and have to say that everything is as easy as they promise. We have asked them a lot (for example SSH Access) and their replies were always fast and professional. Within minutes you receive a reply from them and if there is an issue, Hostgator is there to help you.

The only downside is random downtime for a few minutes, but this could be DNS zones reloading if someone adds a new domain name or parked domain. However, for a price like this noone will complain.

Biggest Pro: SSH Access available
Biggest Con: Sometimes slow / non responding (possibly a Bind issue)

One of the best hosts, Hostgator

I am using hostgator now from past 5 months & quite satisfied with their service. Earlier I used free hosting providers which provide limited space & bandwidth, to host my small site. As I had problems with their uptime so I decided to shift to paid hosting & also thought of making an arcade site. As this required lots of space & bandwidth so I shifted to hostgator. Whenever I had some problem in beginning, their online customer support was always there to help me. Till now I am very much satisfied with their uptime. Due to the fact that I can host unlimited sites with them so I am thinking of making few more sites in future. Infact I referred my friend to their hosting also.

Biggest Pro: Support for hosting unlimited sites.
Biggest Con: Lack of free promotional offers like free adword coupons, etc.

One of the best hosts ever!

I just love HostGator! They give 600gb of storage and 6tb of bandwidth per month for only 10$ per month! That is great! Their customer support is fastest ever, their operators are 24-7 online! And best of all - their servers are always up and very fast! Once I got stuck when I wanted to install some script - I seeked for help in their live support and one of their operators helped me installing that script in no time. I would recommend HostGator to anyone looking for a good, cheap, and reliable hosting service!

HostGator Hosting for a great price with lots of standard feature

I've been using another hosting company for years. Then I became more serious as an internet marketer. I needed to save money and be able to host multiple domains on the same plan.

I switched to HostGator a month or so ago and have all of my domains hosted there. It is saving me about $15 a month. This doesn't seem like much at first but it does make a difference.

The cPanel 11 interface is outstanding and very easy to use. But the best thing I've found about HostGator is their technical support.

I use their chat support feature whenever I get stuck. I get immediate responses. Their support people are well trained, very helpful and speak my language.

I recommend HostGator to all of my friends and can even make a few bucks through their affiliate program.


Biggest Pro: Host unlimited domains
Biggest Con: Shared hosting could be faster

Carefree Hosting - Hostgator!

This hosting proved to be a reliable and stable server.Since my inception in this hosting only once there was a maintainence down except that case the server was doing really good.I never had a server load issue with them which normally all hosting service providers used to do they force sites on shared hosting plans to shift to dedicated one.

The best thing I like from HostGator is their Control Panel ( Cpanel ), its really cool and its very helpful and easier for me to set up a blog adding to my site. The only thing which I don't like with Telephone support. Once,I tried to know about their newly added features and has to clarify some technical details, but that time it is really worst and made me to be on phone line for several minutes giving me a worst reply. Overall, than these things I can give a big plus to them in relating to the hosting factors. Most importantly they have good number of Uptime records.

Reliable hosting for advanced users

As an advanced user of hosting services and as my site gets more hits i took this hosting service.This hosting initially looked very normal to me.But at later stage i discorvered that ,this hosting is very stable.Stability is just one feature but the important aspect of this hosting service is its accessing speed.The server offers maximum accessing speed.Transfering data through FTP also is a faster process.With unlimited bandwidth the site has remained ON all the time.The key feature of the hosting is the server's reliability.A periodical checking is done to the server by the admins so that the server never crashes .A perfect backup of data is also maintained.Hence the server act as very reliable one.
