Hostgator reviews, demo site, uptime, speed and comparison

dsn addresses when I initially started my service with them (not by choice it was a glitch in their system). Since then I have had my websites become suspended 4 times in less than 6 months because each time I call them they inform me that the the canceled (extra- or mistake that #hostgator created when I initially joined them) was causing issues with the active package. Each time they inform me it will be corrected and now after the 4th time of this happening, I have been hung up on 4 times, wasted over 2 hours on the phone and told that I have to fix the problem and that there is nothing that they can do or will do to keep me as a satisfied customer…Their customer service is horrible, I will not recommend their service to anyone!

For users that demand processing power, Hostgator VPS plans are recommended. The Snappy 2000 is priced at $57.97 a month. There are 5 VPS plans available. The basic VPS plan is not using cPanel and price is $19.95/mo. If you are going for VPS, we would recommend the Snappy 1000 plan for starting. This plan comes with cPanel control panel. The most recommended plan is the Snappy 2000 that come with 2 GB RAM for better performance.

For Hostgator dedicated servers users, there are 4 plans to choose from. The basic server is comes with dual core servers, 4GB RAM and 500 GB RAID-1 disk drive. The price begins from $174 a month. In comparison, we would recommend the Liquidweb hosting that uses cloud based dedicated server. And their price is around $100 a month and it uses flexible cloud network. More details available at
