HostGator Web Hosting Review

Charles LaRocca

HostGator has evolved from a real down home hosting company to be one of the largest hosting providers online today with over 8 million websites hosted.

The cool thing about HostGator is that their success has not changed a thing except their ability to offer their quality hosting plans at even lower rates.

They still provide quality support from their staff of over 500 knowledgeable hosting professionals.

If for some reason their staff ever comes up short, HostGator actually encourages you to open a support request with CEO himself. Now that is access!


HostGator offers unlimited storage, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited Email addresses for as little as $3 per month.

With their one-click tool you can have your own CMS, blog, forum, photo gallery, wiki, or E-commerce store up in a matter of minutes.

They also include their own website builder with drag-and-drop interface and a wide selection of themes, to craft your own professional looking website in no time.

Once you have that website up and running you'll have access to a $100 Google Adwords offer and a $100 Bing Ads credit to get those visitors flowing.


State of the art servers and rock solid network means the people at HostGator can rest easy knowing they'll easily keep their 99.9% uptime promise to their loyal customers.

That kind reliability coupled with their weekly off-site data backups means that your website will always be safe and sound with no excuses.

Control Panel

When it comes to a great control panel HostGator has it right with the latest version of cPanel.

With cPanel you will have the ability to not only control manage your website stats, logs, redirects, security, and software but you'll also have the ability to install over 52 popular scripts with one click of the mouse.

If you want to take it for a test drive they do make a demo available for potential client's right on their plan page.

Customer Support

HostGator has the best support I have ever had the pleasure to work with. They have so much pride in their veteran support team and if anything goes wrong, there is nothing more important.

In addition to world class support HostGator gets big bonus points for their extensive collection of over 500 video tutorials and 600 help articles. Their public support form is also one of the most active in the web hosting industry.

Let's not forget that special hookup with HostGator CEO Brent Oxley - he is at your disposal if you ever become dissatisfied. This is a company that understands the value of happy customers.
