Hostgator Review

Hostgator cPanel, Shared HostingHostgator is one of the most popular and trusted web hosting provider in the world, company is founded in year 2002 and since then it is serving thousands of satisfied customers.

Hostgator is partnering with Softlayer and utilizing Softlayer datacenters which guarantee top notch connectivity and high quality hardware. I think that main reason for popularity of this web hosting provider is mainly because stability, low downtime and excellent support.

Hosting Packages

Literally you can find any web hosting package that you need for your web project, the available web hosting options are: shared hosting, VPS hosting, Reseller Hosting and of course dedicated servers. Both Linux and Windows operating systems are available too.


Linux Shared Hosting

NOTE! Unlimited space and bandwidth doesn't technically exists, however Hostgator supply enough space and bandwidth for any "middle of the road" project and mid-size web site or blog. Technically unlimited means between 10 to 50GB of disk space and this is more than enough!


VPS Hosting

Hostgator WHM on VPSWide range of VPS hosting packages are also offered. All VPS packages comes with CentOS Linux with full root access. VPS container is based on Virtuozzo Power Panel and you have an option to choose between Parallels Plesk and cPanel (personally I would recommend choosing cPanel / WHM Control Panel option only on VPS with at least 1GB of RAM).


Dedicated Server Hosting

Latest hardware and software – fully managed dedicated server with complete control and of coruse root access.

Web Hosting Features


Hostgator offer much more beyond stardart features for any web hosting package. Some are pretty much unnecessary, but good to be there. Some of the most notable features are:

  • Fantansico Deluxe
  • Thousands of free website templates
  • Free credits for Google AdWords
  • mod_clouflare
  • site buiders
  • fast support
  • etc...


Web Hosting Support and Help


Probably major part of Hostgator good reputation is because fast and reliable support. Especially if you are located in USA, support will be very fast as it will perfectly fit in your timesone. I would say that Hostgator support was going down for several month at the end of last year and beginning of this year and response time was going up to few hours, but recently things improved again and Hostgator offer some of the best and most knowledgable support out there. Few support options available – live chat, support ticket system and web hosting forum support.

Summary

Hostgator is not the fastest web hosting you can get, but it is one of the most reliable and reputable out there. WebmaisterPro network host more than 60 different website on different web hosting packages at Hostgator. So from first hand we can recommend this company as reliable. We rarely experience downtime and even it is not 99.99% up-time, it is getting very close to that. If you are experience less than 99% downtime, this probably mean that something in your coding or script isn't quite right. Hostgator doesn't offer cheap service, but if you look for reliable web hosting provider, I think this is number one choice.
