18 Dec Hostgator Review 2017 – Is it Worth it?
The worst company ever – #hostgator; if you trust your webhosting to them you need your head testing. We are a small camera club Wight Balance Photography Plus and we used #hostgator for our webhost, we trusted them with our website and domain name, what a mistake. We had them host our website for four years. The last two have been a nightmare. They would not answer support ticket requests. You are better off talking to your dog than try too communicate via their live chat link. They disabled our website and sold off our domain name to a third party. You would be better off sending smoke signals to communicate to the world than trust #hostgator with your website. The worst company we have ever dealt with. Brian Williams

Review 2017: https://www.webhostingdogs.com/coupons/hostgator/
Hostgator was founded back in 2002 by Brent Oxley and grew from a company maintained by only one man, to a company with hundreds of employees, over the years. Sold to a company called EIG for approximately 220$ million in 2012, Hostgator is still the top choice for anyone looking for very cheap hosting in 2016.
Let us look at their special discounts first:
Hostgator has 4 types of discounts that it offers throughout the year:
– Promo codes, which give you a 20% price cut, available at websites, blogs and forums around the Internet.- A 0.01$ hosting offer, where you pay only 1 cent for hosting in the first month after signing up with them.- Flash sales, which you need to be very quick to catch and which are available only a couple of times a year. These sales offer up to 40% discount on hosting with Hostgator.- The exclusive partner code, which offers a 25% reduction in prices for all Hostgator hosting plans.
The different hosting plans:
The company offers different hosting services, ranging from shared hosting, cloud hosting, re seller hosting and dedicated hosting, but most users would probably be interested only in the high quality shared hosting service, which has three different plans, tailored to individual user needs.
The Hatchling plan is the most basic plan and most useful for someone creating their first website or looking to host only one domain. The Baby plan will allow you to host multiple domains as well, while the Business plan has multiple domain hosting, along with such extra features as dedicated SSL and IP address, which the previous two plans don`t offer. All of the plans naturally come with unlimited bandwidth and storage space, something that Hostgator is well known for.
The price breakdown would be: Hatchling at around 4$/month, Baby at 6.50$ and the professional Business plan at only 10.50$/month. These are basically some of the cheapest prices you can get for hosting anywhere online. Of course, if you choose a plan and are then looking to upgrade, the process is as simple as filling out an upgrade form, and Hostgator automatically upgrades to the plan of your choice, simple and fuss free.
Other major features of Hostgator:
The server performance of the company is one of the best available, and maybe the best available at this price range. The servers can go on for months without any downtime, which directly translates in no downtime whatsoever for clients.
A server speed rating of “B” internationally, makes Hostgator one of the fastest hosting options available, with very good ping response and speed.
A very happy user base is also proof to the high quality hosting clients get when choosing Hostgator as their hosting option. Statistically, very few people had any issues with the company, and complains were usually centered around Hostgator`s client support team, which can be a tad slow to respond at times.
All in all, Hostgator is one of the best, if not the best option for people just creating their first website and looking for a good host, but also for professionals who look for a hosting option that is both cheap and offers high performance both stability and speed-wise.
5/5 stars and you will be hard pressed to find a better host out there then Hostgator.
