Hostgator is one of the most popular web hosting companies in the world. It is often the first and the only choice for most companies and webmasters. Whether a website is that of a business or an individual, Hostgator emerges as a top contender. In this Hostgator review, we look at all the features of their website service and at the reasons why it is still the best web hosting company around.
Hostgator is the cheapest and the most reliable web hosting company. The fact that it is the cheapest needs no debate because their prices, starting with the basic hatchling plan to the various upgrade options, are cheaper than all major web hosting companies. The reliability of Hostgator can be gauged from the fact that their clients do not switch to other providers and whatever credibility and popularity that the company has achieved till date has been because of its impeccable service.
Over the recent years, many web hosting companies have come to the fore and spent huge amounts of money on mainstream and online advertising. These companies have had a good start because they managed to get a lot of exposure through expensive advertising. Anyone who has used such companies as their web hosting service will tell you that their quality of service and dependability is nothing to vouch upon. To the contrary, Hostgator has grown purely because of its quality of service. Good word of mouth and references have brought Hostgator from a startup to the most dominant company in the web hosting space.
The features that Hostgator provide are more than sufficient for any webmaster or company. There are unlimited storage options, unlimited bandwidth, add-on domains, sub domains, pop3 accounts, auto responders, free site builder, free website templates and free website migration among others. Many of these services or features are offered by other companies but some are not assured with the basic packs. Many companies put forth some of these and other features as optional or chargeable, which become free with upgraded subscriptions. Hostgator is the only, or perhaps among the very few web hosting companies, that offer all necessary features in its basic startup plan.
Hostgator has proved its ability to offer 99.9% uptime. There are companies that make similar claims but fail to deliver. Hostgator is also the only company that wouldn’t unnecessarily censor your content without an explanation. The only content that would be censored by Hostgator will be illegal according to the laws in the United States.
Overall Rating of Hostgator: 5 stars
