HostGator Review

Posted on 06 July 2010 by Brian Meehan

I’ve been using HostGator web hosting for a few months now and decided to post a short review on how it’s working out.

Previously I was using free hosting for my other websites and I have to admit I was a bit hesitant about signing up for paid hosting. However there were some features which I considered necessary for the http://e-productsreview.com website that I was not able to find with free hosting.

So I decided to start off with a monthly Hatchling plan @ $8.95 per month with HostGator as this would give me the flexibility to upgrade my hosting plan if required or to cancel my subscription if I was not happy with the hosting service.

Account and website setup was very straight forward:

  • Select your desired hosting plan
  • Choose your domain option (register a new domain or enter your existing domain information).
  • Enter your personal details and credit card information.
  • Install and customize WordPress.     

The thing that impressed me most about HostGator is the Control Panel, which contains a number of great features such as Website Statistics, Fantastico (Shopping Carts, Blogs, Portals, Forums), Password Protected Directories and a Web Based File Manager.

(Try the HostGator cPanel Demo).

There are a number of web hosting plans to suit your requirements and budget. Every web hosting plan comes with a 45 day money back guarantee, 99.9% uptime guarantee, and is fully guaranteed by the owner himself.

3 Years: $12.95 p/m
2 Years: $13.95 p/m
1 Year: $14.95 p/m

(The above pricing is in USD and accurate at time of posting).

Pros:

  • Unlimited disk space and bandwidth.
  • Top class Control Panel
  • Easy to use website backup and FTP functions.
  • Video Tutorials
  • Save $9.94 on your first month’s hosting when you use coupon ‘eproductsreview‘.

Cons:

  • None to date.

Conclusion:

So far I have been very pleased with the hosting service provided by HostGator. I have not noticed any downtime or slow browsing speed. In fact I plan to upgrade from a Hatchling to a Baby plan in the near future to avail of unlimited domains and to consolidate all of my websites with HostGator.
