    Hostgator Review

    I've dealt with many hosts in the past. I've been with HostGator for over three years. There have been a couple hiccups that were related to server load and sql usage, but overall, I am extremely happy with HostGator.

    I am on the swamp croc plan and my main site is a vBulletin forum for our local nastalgic, old western town of Dodge City. You know, the "Get the hell out of Dodge!" saying?

    If I was forced to recommend an area of improvement, I'd have to say communication within the organization. In the past, there have been times when you work on one issue with one tech and another tech does something that contradicts or conflicts with it. Or you talk with one that doesn't know what has already been worked on or determined, like they can't access the customer history notes. I've heard that they have improved on this.



    For the most part though, they've been real good to me. Recently, we had installed a comprimized script and were hacked by a porn spammer. HostGator helped us to identify the problem and guided us to rectify it. Their security and support staff is top notch!!

    As far as billing, I have automatic drafting setup through Paypal. This has worked well for me. I have never had a billing issue or even had to worry about making a payment.

    Uptime has been very near 100%. You don't see that with other hosts.

    HostGator helped us move from our other host and did virtually all the work for us. We find the cpanel, fantastico scripts and other features of HostGator to be worthwhile, useful and easy to use.

    I would definitely reccomend HostGator to anyone looking for a reliable, easy, cost effective host. You wont go wrong with them.

    Thanks for writing this review Jennifer. Certainly a big help to me. I've been torn between HostGator and BlueHost for quite a while now and your review has tipped my decision in favor of HostGator.

    This truly a great review. At least you have given us if not them definitely me an idea about the whole thing. I cannot really say that all of the hosting sites same the same passion when it comes to customer service but hostgator is definitely one of the hosting sites that is sitting at the top. I am looking forward to hosts my sites to them before the end of the year. Right now we have change freeze in our company and is not a good time to migrate over a short period of time. If not possible within this year probably early next year I can move all my sites to them. thanks for the info once again!

    I have used HostGator for many years. I have not had any major problems with them so far.
    I love online deals and share them at my website.

    I am doing a web hosting comparison which includes HostPapa,DreamHost, HostGator, GoDaddy, I might as well take some time to show how to do a few things with your hosting

    i personally prefer bluehost, i don't like hostgator and they tend to rip you off. why use overpriced service when you can have the same exact service for less?

    I have used Hostgator for about 3 years so far, and I can not find anything wrong with them yet. The service is great, and their customer support is the Tops they have been very helpful and nice every time I have had to call them.
