HostGator Review

HostGator is one of the world’s top web hosting companies, hosting millions of domains worldwide.

HostGator is a true leader among web hosting companies, providing exceptional customer support and a solid hosting platform.  My tech support issues have always been handled quickly and courteously, and those “issues” were really my questions on how to do something new or correct something I did wrong. 🙂

Check out the “who”, “what”, “where”, “when”, “why” and “how” of this amazing platform!

 

Who

HostGator is a world leader in Shared, Reseller, VPS, and Dedicated web hosting.  The company is based in  Houston, Texas and has been in business for over 10 years.

HostGator hosts more than 8,000,000 sites on the web, and that number is growing.   You can find out more about HostGator on their website.

 

What

HostGator specializes in 4 types of accounts:

  1. Shared – The most common type of hosting package, where you control a single domain with an unlimited bandwidth and disk space allocation.  You can also create as many sub-domains as you like.Look at the Accounts
  2. Reseller – This is the most common type of hosting package for web designers and developers.  A special control panel allows you to manage and provide your customers (or yourself) with individual “user” control panels that allow them to create and modify their own websites.
  3. VPS – This is a Virtual Private Server type of hosting package, where you have expanded control of what software is installed in your hosting platform for advanced functionality.  It is “virtual” in that it is one of several private servers that are running on a single hardware platform.
  4. Dedicated – This type of hosting package is essentially the supply of advanced hosting software and the rental of a private, physical serever to handle the most demanding hosting needs.
I work with a Reseller account, as this provides me with the most flexibility and price benefit in my Internet Marketing endeavors. 🙂

HostGator comes with an easy-to-navigate cPanel.  The cPanel is the control center for all tasks that are to be done with the sites on your domain.  These tasks include:

  • Automated site installations
  • Email setup
  • Database configuration
  • Site bandwidth monitoring
  • Site disk usage monitoring
  • Sytem status
  • Numerous other control features!

 

How

Take a brief look into the cPanel and watch me create a website in less than 2 minutes!

 

 

Final Thoughts

After trying other web hosting platforms, I returned to HostGator as my only source of web hosting software.  The other platforms I tried either lacked the support I needed or the features I wanted.

If you will be performing any serious Internet Marketing or other entrepreneurial business endeavors, then you will need a solid web hosting platform that you can trust.

HostGator is my #1 choice for web hosting providers, and I highly recommend that you give them a try.

Enjoy! 🙂
