Bluehost vs HostGator Comparison Of Hosting Services

Terrible customer service! – I called multiple times to have my service terminated and was continuously charged. After my third call I was told by Jason that I was being charged because I left my card on file. Very untrustworthy company. He also refused to refund my money (over $160) because it was over 30 days ago! I called before but now there was nothing they could do to help. Save yourself the frustration.

    Both are owned by EIG so it's the same support, quality, staff etc…

    Hostgator is worst one, I cancel it due to their terrible customer service, 0.40 – 1.5 an hour wait each time for them to reply on online chat, can you believe it, online Chat, and at the end, most of them are not qualified at all. Disaster really.

    Bluehost/HostGator Parent organization They're the same company !!!! Endurance International Group
    They've also acquired
    HostMonster,
    Domain-A-Go-Go,
    A Small Orange,
    Fatcow,
    HostGator,
    24x7domains,
    SEO WebHosting,
    HostGator,
    Justhost & thereby Hostclear,
    Apollo Hosting
    and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
    Says it all, really. They've "eaten up" at least 212 companies and at the very least as many as 30 of those are hosting companies and at least 90 are web/networking related.. Some peole might think that's a good thing, since with such a big company they ain't gonna go bust anytime soon are they
    (even though that never prevented the collapse of Barings, Enron, WorldCom Inc, Gen Motors, Lehman Brothers, American Airlines, MF Global, PG&E, Thornburg Mortgage, Chrysler, Conseco, CIT Group and Washington Mutual, all multi billion dollar companies with a combined worth of well over $1.5 trillion, yes that's trillion !) Pardon the pun, but I wouldn't bank on it.

    The point is, all this company does is just eat up other companies and so their goal is profiteering. The technical services they offer, the customer service and the usefulness to the wider internet community is either secondary or nil. Prime focus here is money by a huge percentage and so much so that they really do not care that much about the secondary areas, but it is those secondary areas that are so important, vital in fact, to their customers. Is it really such a good idea to have a single monstrous hosting company that will eventually completely wipe out all the competition or at best two or three super massive black holes that the internet fall into. If all hosting falls under a few large corporations then there's a way of controlling the internet and the internet is the the single best opportunity for the human race to remain free. Medicine and healthcare is almost totally in the hands of corporates, food manufacturing and distribution: the same, education is well and truly on its way to becoming a tool of propaganda and the mass media, well, that really has been wrapped up for decades.
    Oh ! Hostgator's shit so I switched to Bluehost, then Justhost and now I'm with A Small Orange, Whoopie !!! At least there's choice out there eh ? Well there is but it seems as soon as any hosting company gets to be decent they sell out. Where are the Whatsapp's of the hosting world ? Yes I know Whatsapp sold itself to zuckerburg (for, whatwasit ? $19billion) but the whole point of whatsapp was NO Advertising and I'm pretty sure there was a clause in the contract that whatsapp, following acquisition, would remain ad-free and it still is. So, I suppose someone like Koum, being absolutely totally loaded having $7billion in facebook shares and able to raise $274 million by selling a mere 4% of them, he could just get rid of EIG by buying them.

    Got bluehost exclusive discount link http://www.bluehost.com/track/bhdz/discount-offer

    DON'T GO TO BLUEHOST. The first thing you read in the main page, is:

    – "FREE DOMAIN"
    – "30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE", and in the description
    – "no hidden fees or penalties for ending your term early".

    I cancel my account one week later. And they keep 1/3 of the payment, they told me that the domain names are nonrefundable. Even when the page says "FREE DOMAIN", (so they keep money for a free thing?) and you don't get an email or something about that, you have to go by yourself to the terms of conditions to check if the information that they sell to you, is not false… and it is.

    Thanks for the help. I've been on StartLogic for a decade and find it to be a bit overkill for what I need… as well as a bit uncomfortably priced. I'm gonna try one of these two

    Gr8 video! Hostgator's account suspension issue (I researched it) arose from scripts using more CPU or memory than allowed, slowing all accounts on that server. This has included sitemap scripts and (I gather) YOAST. I HAVE used HG for years and love my new Cloud service. This puts reseller accounts in a new light, however. If one customer's script shuts down all Websites on a reseller account, I wouldn't rely on it. If their policy is now to shut down the offending script and send a notice, that is far better than shutting down the account right away.
