Hostgator is rated as one of the best web hosts by most web hosting forums and reviews sites. No, we haven't just decided to create a hostgator review site without a reason. After years of experince in the web host industry and running a few well known web hosting forum, we are convinced that hostgator is one of the very few hosts that we can suggest without getting our objectivity questioned.

Hostgator Features Review

Hostgator uses cPanel, which is probably the best control panel around. You get all the bells and whistles of a cPanel host: cron jobs, .htaccess, fantastico script installer etc. In addition, Hostgator supports Ruby on Rails and the lastest configuration of PHP and MySQL. Hatchling - the cheapest package comes with minimum features like 20 POP3 accounts, just one domain support etc. Bigger packages gives unlimited resources - add on domains, POP3 accounts etc. Nothing much to review here, they offer almost all you want from a PHP/Linux host.

Hostgator Uptime Review

Hostgator like other major hosts, offers 99.9% uptime guarantee. Their performance has been stable over the last many years. Very rarely one comes across a customer who is not happy with hostgator uptime. They host on top end Dual Xeon processors and connects to ten backbone providers directly. Also, they do not oversell much - you won't see them offering 2000 GB space for a $5.00 account and unlimited domains. They keep it reasonable, and deliver what has been promised.

Hostgator Price

Hostgator is reasonably priced. Their cheapest package - Hatchling comes at $6.95 per month if you decide to pay monthly which is the normal rate for a budget hosting. If you don't mind committing to an annual/bi-annual contract, the rate comes down significantly. They charge a nominal setup fee for a monthly contract, but anyone who want to try out hostgator can use a discount coupon to get it free for the first month. Overall hostmonster is very competitively priced and can allow flexible payment terms to suit all kind of users.

Hostgator Support Review

Hostgator offers all possible options for customer support: Support tickets, 24/7 toll free lines, online chat and also they provide a support forum. Their forum is not only an indication of the open nature of the company, it also helps to find answers to a number of typical issues. Hostgator also have extensive tutorials section where you can read the tutoral about the control panel etc. In hosting industry, hostgator has one of the fastest response time for support tickets. Over the last few years, we have seen very few customers who are unhappy about the hostgator support. This is not a mean achievement, considering the amount of negative reviews one come across regarding the other big hosts like godaddy, 1and1 etc.



Bluehost is ultimately one of the best hosting company for any hosting services you require.
