The hosting plans available to Hostgator customers are the Hatchling, Baby and Business plans. Each plan offers the customer unlimited bandwidth as well as unlimited disk space and a shared SSL certificate for each customer’s website. Though the Hatchling plan only offers customers one domain at a time, the Baby and Business plans offer unlimited domain names. With a 99.9% uptime guarantee any company or individual that wants to ensure their website ever rarely goes down should have it hosted through Hostgator.
Each hosting plan comes with a control panel and site builder that is user friendly for everyone from beginners to experts. Customers can get a demo of the control panel free of charge by logging onto Hostgator’s website. No matter which web hosting plan a customer chooses it comes with a guarantee that unsatisfied customers can get their money back within 45 days of purchasing their hosting plan.
Virtual Private Server Hosting can also be purchased from Hostgator. With nine different levels of VPS hosting to choose from there is something that suits everyone’s needs. In addition to coming with all the features offered in the web hosting plans, the VPS hosting plans come with private name serves, complete root access and offsite backups every week. The VPS hosting provided by Hostgator connects shared hosting and dedicated servers. Anyone who purchases a VPS hosting plan can have it customized to fit their specific needs. Upgrading a VPS hosting plan is easy to do and can be done at any time. The full root access offered by Hostgator allows VPS customers to install software to further customize their hosting for their own needs.
Dedicated servers for either Linux or Windows are also available for purchase by Hostgator customers. Each dedicated server comes with many features designed to make running the server an easy and stress free experience. The control panels can even be accessed in various languages.
Domain names can either be purchased or transferred to Hostgator from other companies. Each purchase of a new domain name comes with free locking of the domain, automatic renewal and a domain management panel that is easy for anyone to use. Multiple domains can be run using a single domain manager, streamlining the job of those customers who have more than one website hosted by Hostgator. Domain names can be reserved with .com, .net, org, .info and more.
Technical and Customer Support
Unlike most other web hosting companies, Hostgator provides many choices for receiving technical and customer support. There are forums that customers can read and participate in and video tutorials they can watch. Customers can create a support ticket, start a live online chat, call Hostgator and manage their payments online. They also offer a Hostgator blog and customers can always like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
Over the years, Hostgator has been given a series of accolades by those who praise their services. DailyHostNews named Hostgator the February 2013 Editor’s Choice. Blogging.com chose Hostgator as the Best Host of 2012, an honor they were also awarded in 2011. In 2011 they were also recognized by WordPress and Joomla as well. Website Hosting Reviews.net named them the Best Free Website Transfer Service in 2011 and Web Hosting Clue.com declared that Hostgator provides the Best Small Business Hosting. That same year they also earned awards from Web Hosting Geeks.com for Best Reseller Webhosting.
In 2009, Hostgator was named 21st on the list of Fastest Growing Private Company In America by Inc. Magazine. As far back as 2007, Hostgator has been receiving awards for the great service they provide to each customer.
For all of these reasons, Hostgator is the best website hosting company, and one of the most popular, in the world.
