This is one of the best web host for the price I have ever used, good up time the support is the best ever they well move your site from a another host for free, or use the script installer for word press or other scripts. the up time on this host is the best I have ever seen for a shared host, server speed on my downloads top 70mpbs with good ram, and cpu this beats most vps and its shared, I currently host at this host check the site out and see for you self this is a vary good host!

I've tried a few web host providers and Hostgator has so far provided the best support. I've used their chat feature and have found the operators to be very helpful. I've also had two websites transferred across by the hostgator team and they did a great job at quickly doing a very stressful task.

I owned many websites developed by myself. I required a shared host which supports unlimited disk space, bandwidth, hosting domains and databases. I choosed HostGator in 2009. Now I have 7 domains and 11 websites hosted with them, but it only costs me under $72 per year. I'm in a 3 year order of the hostgator baby plan. The price is not most competitive in the economic hosts but I never had issues while contacting their customer or technical support. I'm really happy with them.

One of the best hosting I've ever used. The customer service is mind blowing providing full support to any query at any level and I've recommended this host to many of the other users joining after me and I'll be keep doing it in future as well. Hostgator rocks!

I am using HostGator for all of my site and that too on Shared hosting and till now i haven't faced any single issues from their site. i have near about 4 site hosted with different platform on HostGator but all of them are working very smoothly. No complaint from the readers and visitors of the site regarding Down Time or any other problems. The cPanel (Control Panel) is just too good and easy to understand. As a newbie i was not aware of how to install WordPress on my site but with the "Quick Install" service it just took 5-10 seconds to install the WordPress on my site, the same case was with the MyBB forum also. In past i was using some other host and i had switched to HostGator and their customer support service helped me to transfer my whole site from other Hosting site to HostGator without facing any issues. They have a very good and excellent Customer Support 24x7 and all time ready to help you in any type of situations. Their servers are well and capable of handling huge traffic too.

I would highly recommend this company for the quality which they provides.

I have never been so impressed with a hosting company in my LIFE! hostgator is awesome!

Great support and amazing service equals a winner!
Usually I do not give feedback on services because usually everything is average. In this case I can not express how impressed I am with hostgator. My site is extremely fast and responsive, even more than I imagined.
Support the past few days has been nothing less than spectacular, and yesterday after I got off the phone with a representative named Josh N. all I have to say, besides his help and politeness, is that his handling of a small mysql issue that had my sub-domain not working was resolved extremely fast and very efficiently, enough to make me go WOW!!!
Just want to say thank you to the staff and to hostgator, it is not often that you see a company that simply knows what it's doing yet at the same time actually care about its customers.
