If you are looking for shared hosting or reseller hosting, you might want to trek over to Hostgator.com. Hostgator specializes in web hosting facilities, and as far as I can see, they are doing a good job. They have recently picked up the Editors’ Choice Award by Findmyhost.com. I think they deserved it.
Hostgator.com is both reliable and fast — essential qualities for any web business. They work on Dual Xeon servers with 4GB memory and IDE hard drives. Moreover, with their claim of 99.9 percent uptime, they provide great hosting packages. At the same time, they are quite affordable.
The basic shared hosting package is offered at a monthly rate of $6.95. Yearly rates for the more advanced packages start from $9.95. You might be thinking that this is slightly higher than the rates offered by other web hosting providers. In my opinion, it is well worth the money. Moreover, each of the packages comes with a thirty day money back guarantee. So just wait and see for a while before you pronounce your final verdict. My guess is that you will want to stay with Hostgator for some time.
There are several other plusses to using Hostgator. For one, you get instant backups for your website. Moreover, you can host unlimited domains, sub-domains and FTP accounts. The most basic shared hosting package comes with limits though. It allows one domain and twenty sub-domains. Of course, you could always shift to a better package once you start expanding your website. And with as many as fifty-two scripts, this is a great web host.
In general, most users are satisfied with the Control Panel offered by Hostgator. In fact, their CPanel is pegged as being one of the best in the web hosting world. It adds to the convenience of managing your domains and sub-domains. The Control Panel demo helps new users get used to the various facilities offered by Hostgator.
In my opinion, one of Hostgator’s greatest virtues is that it offers great customer service. Most of the packages offer instant set up at no extra charge. There is twenty-four hour customer support. You can decide whether you want to interact with their customer care representatives over live chat or the phone. You could also make use of the email ticket system. I have found that their customer care execs are often more than ready to go out of their way to help you out. Yes, there are the occasional goof-ups. On the whole, however, Hostgator.com seems to be satisfying its customers.
