Hostgator Hosting

I don’t like contracts and tons of fees, so when I first started looking for a web hosting service I almost decided a website just wasn’t worth it because of that. I mean who has the nerve to advertise hosting services for a fair price and then expect their customers to pay and arm and a leg for web hosting, plus hidden fees? Well, several months ago by chance through a friend I discovered HostGator  hosting and changed my mind.

Unlike other web hosting services I found out that Host Gator is true to its word. The company hosts more than 2,200,000 domains, has 5,000 servers and has over 150,000 customers to date.

But what really makes them different is the fact that there are no contracts, no hidden fees and you can host as many domains as you want. The company also offers low monthly rates depending on your needs and there is no setup fee. Currently there are three hosting packages ranging from $4.95 (hatchling) to $14.95 (business) per a month.

Their hatchling plan includes unlimited disk space and bandwidth, 1 domain name, 24-hour support, unlimited sub domains, unlimited ftp accounts, unlimited pop3 accounts and more.

Their business plan includes unlimited disk space and bandwidth, unlimited domains, your own toll-free number, 24-hour support, unlimited addon domains, unlimited sub domains, unlimited ftp accounts, unlimited pop3 accounts and more.

From the time I’ve been a customer of this company, I’ve only known of one time where the servers were down for a few hours and I’ve been using them for a little over 2 years now. If there is ever a question about my website I can log onto their 24/7 chat or submit a support ticket which is answered in a very short time. In addition they offer a knowledge base, active forum and tutorials to help guide you get your website up and running.

There’s even a few tools to help you create the website of your dreams.  The company offers more than 4,000 web templates that are designed to help you allow your website look its best, all free of charge.

There is also a program known as site builder, which will allow you to get your webpages up and running in minutes with just a few easy clicks. And if you have a WordPress Blog you can easily install it onto your site.

You will need to keep a few things in mind, however. Even though the company offers unlimited domains, you’ll still need to purchase a domain name which can cost as little as $10 a year. You can simply purchase a domain name through HostGator or you can purchase one through another company of your choosing. However, if you already have a domain name that you’ve purchased in the past, you can transfer your old domain to your account.

Also, if you do a search online, you will find that almost always, there are promotional codes (coupons) that you can use to help you save even more on their web hosting services.

And if that’s not enough, HostGator hosting offers a 45-day money back guarantee. So there’s really no reason for you not to consider getting your very own website. So what are you waiting for?
