Hosting for Developers

I have a number of hosting accounts from a number of brands and HostGator is better than several other brands that I have tested out like fatcow, ipower, and several others. Their 45 day guarantee is longer than others which is also good because it allows you to get up and running with the platform before you actually decide if you want to stick with them forever.

High Cost Hosting!!

We were with Hostgator from 2006 and paid our hosting monthly.....about 6 months ago I had some difficulty on their site paying monthly so I paid for a full year. $86.00....which in todays economy with so many other hosts I believe is high. We decided to switch to GoDaddy (thank god) and cancelled hosting. They kept sending emails.....why are you leaving, rate us, etc. I had to ask for a refund and then was told I would get a $16.00 refund as they are withholding my extended term discount.....what??? After being with them for so long I guess they just don't care and want your moola.

Great hosting

I moved all my hosting to hostgator a couple of years ago, and I just don't understand some of the comments and negative reviews below.
Great pricing, reliable service, and fantastic customer service.
The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because *some* of their back office stuff is confusing, and sometimes seems to not be consistent in what it does.
For example, if I get a new url and then create a subdomain at hostgator, for one site (after everything is set up of course) it should show up as url.com.
But the next site, set up the same way, consistently shows up as url.mywebsitename.com
useless, and unable to change it.

Was a Customer for Years - Declined into Unacceptable Services

I have recommend and used HostGator for years. Though since they have been taken over, sites hosted by them have become very slow and there are some strange server-side bugs. Sites would occasionally become unusable slow and are in general a few times slower than other hosts. Also the support, which was great is now very poor and takes much longer to get hold of them.

To give a full review of negative occurrences since they were taken over:

1 - Moved to a different server with no notice and no details of new login information
2 - A server error that led to a 500 response to requests for robots.txt, which caused Google to de-index all the sites on the server
3 - Since the move sites are very slow, sometimes un-useably slow. Load times are about 5 times slower than my new host, at best, and the server will not stream at more than 50Kbps.
4 - Posting of large files stalls on the first attempt. Only works on posting again
5 - E-mails wont send first time. An error message is given and it can take multiple retries to send an email
6 - Support is now much more responsive and take longer to wait for in the queue

terrible

used to love this company then they put prices up without telling you then when you complain they basically say tuff. Then even though I had been with them over 4 years wouldnt cancel my contact and still 7 months laters they are still billing me each month!!! They where charging me $80+ per month I know have the same package with another company at £3,95 per month. Total scammers and ripoff merchants.

The best customer support ever in hosting.

Very fast and good customer servicei ever seen in the hosting business. Prices are not cheap, but far from the most expinsive.

I choose Hostgator again at any time.

Hostgator gone bad?

Hostgator will not enforce their own terms of service. Despite many abuse reports proving TOS violations, they refuse to act and seem to be in fact protecting a hate website.

Reports have included links to images of a naked under age girl being held by a very much older nude male, as well as posts advocating date rape of a 15 year old girl. and others posts showing what look like underage boys engaged in sex acts.

This is potential harm to minors and is a violation of their TOS.

There is also a beastiality image showing a nude male having sex with a decapitated pigs head, again a violation, as their TOS states obscenity is prohibited.

There are many more such posts and images, but Hostgator will not enforce their TOS.

If anyone is thinking of joining Hostgator I would recommend that you look elsewhere first.

John Smithson.

Its a PAIN hosting a website on HostGator.

Register --> Pay --> first few hours everything is fine.
But THEN, they will lock your account, request a copy of your passport, and even if you send the copy via e-mail in minutes after their request and they have action taken on your account, they will NOT unlock your account and even not check your copy of your passport EVEN not after more than 12 hours.
You got left with less money in your pocket and their support laughting at you for beeing so dumb to give your money to them.

Im finished with this company, if you need a real cheap and class A hosting company, try http://www.siteground.com/.

Greetings, a REALLY fucked up customer of HostGator.

I apologize for the delay again again again....

Hostgator is presenting themselves as a professional company. This is so far from the truth - right now I am their chat support for the 4th hour in a row... not with something complicated simply trying to activate my account.... Oh and by the way I have a tech team waiting on the side getting paid - while Hostgator doesn't do what they are supposed to do... Do not flash your creditcard at this company as they will make your life a living nightmare.

As a bonus half of the time the chat service doesnt work and you are not able to respond to the customer support.

I can't be happier with their customer service...

Because it rocks!
They work with me, they provide suggestions for better hosting packages.
They should be the poster child for all companies.

Good service for small sites

Hosting with the company for several months and so far having no complaints.

The only annoying thing about them is that It takes a lot of time to get the invoices from their system. a frequent task for businesses mostly & me :-)

Good uptime and fantastic service

Hostgator has a very very good service. They reply quickly on e-mails and their livechat always gives fast answers.

I don't think I'll ever get another host then Hostgator.
