HostGator Review : Complete Overview of leading Hosting Company

July 11, 20122 Comments

When it comes to hosting, HostGator needs no introduction. HostGator was founded in 2002, and at that time it was operated from a college dorm room and had only 3 servers. Since then, HostGator has emerged to be one of the largest hosting companies in the world. Now, with more than 7000 servers and over 2.5 million domain names hosted on it, HostGator is huge.

What makes HostGator so popular?

One of the features that make HostGator so popular is the quality of technical support. Each page of HostGator’s website has a link to live technical support. If you have any problem, you can simply click on one of these links and you can chat live with a technical support representative 24/7 and 365 days.

Another thing is that HostGator offers unlimited storage and bandwidth. Plus, it offers a SiteBuilder tool for free to help you design websites without any knowledge of coding. For more advanced users, HostGator offers full support for PHP, MySQL and much more.

HostGator Review

With an uptime guarantee of 99.9% and money back guarantee, HostGator is a rock solid choice to host your website or blog.

Why you should go with HostGator?

Their homepage is full of awards and achievements. The amazing 24/7 live chat support is worth mentioning. If you are stuck somewhere, these HostGator people won’t help you in anyway, rather they will takeover the complete task and sort out the problem themselves. The representatives will always stand beside you in case you need their help.

HostGator is simply crazy. The discounts rolled out are just insane. One some special occasions, they offer a discount of as high as 80%; which means that if you purchased hosting for 3 years which costs around $150, you will have to pay just $30. Insane, huh….
