HostGator Review

HostGator was established in 2002 and has been on the net for the past nine years. It is not a new company in the world of internet web hosting. It is a firm that offers 99% assurance of uptime. For this reason, there will be very little chance of its servers giving trouble or downtime. Its biggest strength is its provision of unlimited disc space and information transfer. It is one of the few companies that offer a forty-five days’ money-back guarantee. Most of the companies offer only thirty days of trial usage.

HostGator has got some positive reviews by many users of the internet on its customer support program. On account of competent staffing, it is able to solve most of the website issues faced by an average customer. Problems are mostly sorted out through telephone or emails.

It has a large range of web hosting plans such as the Hatchling Plan, the Baby Plan, Virtual; Private Server and Dedicated Servers. Inc Magazine has declared HostGator the 239th fastest growing private establishment in the United States of America.

Any HostGator review will endorse it as a premier web hosting company which offers a superb online site builder. It projects itself as a `green host’ for the simple reason that it maintains carbon emission reductions through its wind energy driven servers. It is a company that is offering its web hosting service with complete wind energy power. It wants to make sure that its servers have a green impact on the environment by investing in the certified credits of renewable energy in the State of Texas. Webhosting is one sector where customers can now start thinking in terms of helping out in reducing the carbon emissions.

With HostGator’s offer of free web templates, there is a good variety to select from with a facility to customize and make your web page unique and original. The designing process that is offered by them for templates through specified designers is novel. They are transparent enough for you to know that what you see with them is what you will get.

A customer is likely to get all the support available for building any kind of page. It could be a basic text page, a blog or even an image gallery. Some users can even opt for an animated flash application.

The QuickInstall feature will help in the installation of several blog programs, content management systems and shopping cart creations from a centralized interface through its own script manager which provides scripts that can match with `Fantastico’, available with several other web hosts.

HostGator charges a non refundable $15 domain registration fee. This domain nomenclature is mostly allowed free by other web hosts like HostMonster. But HostGator’s offer of the money-back guarantee is not matched by any web hosting service provider. Technical support is offered through live chat facility, email and over the telephones. HostGator has more than one million websites being the world’s largest provider of reseller accounts. It has over twenty thousand resellers who look up to it to get their support, network and servers required to run a hosting business.
