Overall A Good Service

I have been with many hosts over the past 4 years or so and have found that there is one host I always live by and that is HostGator, they provide around the clock support 24/7 and always solve any issues I may be having.

You get an amazing amount of bandwidth and disk space for the money you pay which is great value for money.

My only small complaint is that there are quite a few restrictions which do not apply to all users such as not being able to run scripts like top sites.

I think I would suggest HostGator to anyone starting out or even for those who take web building more seriously.

Biggest Pro: Plenty of bandwidth and disk space
Biggest Con: Slightly too many restrictions for some users

HostGator Review

I considered many different hosts before choosing HostGator. None of the ones I looked at could match HostGators low price. They provide all the services you ever need, a very clean easy to use admin control panel and all the space/bandwidth you'll ever need. This is my 2nd year on Hostgator and so far there has been no downtime that I am aware of. I highly recommend this host. A++

Biggest Pro: Uptime, reliability, and professionalism.
Biggest Con: I have seen hosts that offer more disk space/bandwith for a lower price but I find HostGator the most professional/reliable.

Great Host!

The best host on earth, never seen a better host.Its Uptime for the last 8 months has been a fantastic 100.00%. Its Customer Support is great although its LIVE support is not so good. The speed of server is pretty good. Value for money is great. I'm on 10$/month for 100GB space and 1000GB bandwidth. It also has support for unlimited Sub Domains, Parked domains and Addons Domains.

I recommend this host very much :)

Biggest Pro: Uptime 100.00%
Biggest Con: LIVE customer support not so good.

Hostgator Review

I'm not even sure if the first host I ever used is still in business. All I was concerned with was the absolute cheapest deal. I learned the hard way that by making price your main factor you are dooming yourself to get exactly what you paid for. By paying very little, you get very little. I experienced constant downtime until the host lost complete control of their server to hackers. The one redeeming point was they did eventually, after weeks of me nagging, come through with my refund.

My next host, and only since, is Hostgator. I only have one other to compared it against so take my recommendation for what it is worth. I chose them by asking others what host they had the best experience with. All I know is that I've never noticed a single problem to complain about in 8 months of using them. The total minutes of downtime can be counted on my hand. Any time I have requested help from support they have been quick to respond.

The fact that I have no complaints, is what I think says the most. In order for your site to be a success you need to rely on the fact that it will run smoothly. Having a good host saves you from all of the stresses a poor host causes. Piece of mind is the most important thing that you can buy.

Biggest Pro: No Problems!

So far so good...

Been with hostgator for 2 months now, and its been great. The email support has been amazing and with quick response times. 100% uptime so far. Overall +++.

Biggest Pro: support

Hostgator Review from a beginner

I have two accounts, one on bluehost and the other on Host Gator. Hostgator is a nice web host because they offer a wide range of plans for certian types of users. It is well priced and within everyone's budget. They also have more advanced plans such as dedicated servers for those who want to utilize the power. Setting up my site was easy except for the help section. The help section can be confusing because if you buy your domain from somewhere else, the instructions will say you need the same DNS nameserver, but they do not tell you how to look it up. Overall I don't have any complaints. Their online help is great for the quick answers that you need.

Biggest Pro: price
Biggest Con: help database

Great Service

Before I found Host Gator, I had been looking for months to find a suitable host and did try Brinkster but they were terrible. As soon as I found Host Gator, I read some reviews which were 99% positive so decided to give it a try. I have never looked back since. I am sooo glad I tried them out. I have had no problems and my site has been up and stable since I first uploaded it. The unlimited subdomains and MYSQL db's are great and customer support is impecable. I did have a problem once where my site was hacked and everything was deleted but Host Gator immediatley halted there daily backup to make sure my sites backup was not overwritten and then restored my account for me. They notifed me of the security flaw which was fixed and have been up ever since!. Great service!

Biggest Pro: Fantastic Customer Support
Biggest Con: Can't really think of any.

Not bad.

They can be on the expensive side, but overall they are a very decent host. :)

Excellent Company - Recommended

I Like Hostgator.

They have good technical support and high speed servers.

I recommend it.

Biggest Pro: Support and speed

HostGator - A+ Host

I have hosted sites on hostgator for a few years now and my experience has been excellent. I am currently hosted on their swamp plan, and love the unlimited domains offered. I currently host the majority of my sites on this account and can add more whenever I want at no additional charge. Uptime has always been superb, and in years I have been hosted there, I have only noticed one or two periods of downtime that lasted only a few minutes.

Support for hostgator is also excellent. They always have people on live support to assist you with technical or billing problems. They have always worked with me until I have resolved technical issues I was having and made sure that I knew what I was doing when installing things, etc. They also use cPanel for their control panel, which is very easy to use.

I honestly can't think of many things wrong with hostgator. Their prices are a bit higher than some other hosts, but their quality is definitely better than most other hosts out there. They will make up for this slightly higher price with increased uptime and better support. Hostgator has been the best host I have ever used for shared hosting and I would recommend them to anyone.

Biggest Pro: Excellent Uptime and Support
Biggest Con: Price can be slightly high for some
