Hostgator Web Hosting

A good reputation is everything on the Internet. One web hosting company that grasps the concept is HostGator. Started seven years ago, the company goes above and beyond the competition with the extra services, community outreach and customer support they offer. As a way of making a difference in the world, HostGator web hosting offers a grant to help companies such as non-profits with the cost of web hosting.

The home office is housed in Houston, Texas and their customer service representatives are located right here in America where you can reach them day or night, seven days a week with any questions you might have. Along with great customer service, they offer hosting rates to fit any budget and any level of expertise. Whether you need hosting for your individual site or for your business needs, HostGator gives more value for your dollar. They host millions of domains and yet, even the president of the company will become personally involved with your account if need be.

If you’ve never built a website before and don’t have a clue where to begin, HostGator will walk you through it step by step with their free tutorial. Before you commit to using their services, you can see how your website would look. The numerous templates alone are worth the trial just to take a peek at.

The steps from design to building the pages to the editing are the easiest I’ve seen among any of the other web hosting sites I’ve reviewed. If for some reason you run into a problem trying to set up your site, the friendly customer service representative I spoke with said all you have to do is call them and they’ll walk you through the steps.

Maybe you didn’t know about the way HostGator hosting has the customer’s need foremost in mind and you’re already using a web hosting company. That’s no trouble at all for them help you switch your site. They’ll take the hassle out of the moving day for you.

HostGator offers an affordable hosting package starting at just $4.95 per month. For that price, you’re allowed one domain without any limits to your bandwidth or disk space. If you choose the business plan, you get all that, no limit on your domains, plus they’ll give your website a number that’s toll free. You pay only a small charge after the first one hundred minutes. What a bargain!

Maybe you’ve always thought you might be interested in becoming an entrepreneur yourself and you’ve thought about starting a web hosting company. HostGator offers reseller plans. You choose from one of five monthly plans and then you can turn around and sell the hosting as your own company. Best of all, you’ve got HostGator you can turn to if you have reseller questions because they stand behind their name and reputation.

Unlike most hosting companies, if after you try it, you decide that HostGator web hosting isn’t for you, they offer a forty-five day satisfaction guarantee or you’ll get your money back.


  1. I thought HostGator does not allow MLM. Are you able to do MLM sites using them as a host? I think it would be great. I just don’t think they will allow it.

  3. Thanks for the response. I actually called them about it after i wrote the above. At first the girl told me they DO allow MLM and Network Marketing. Then I asked her why do the terms say they do not allow them. She was confused by that and put me on hold to get more info.

    When she came back online she told me that the wording in the terms is only in cases where the MLM or network marketing company is dishonest. Unfortunately, the terms just have a blanket statement that says no MLM, network marketing companies are OK.

    But it seems as if they do not allow the good companies. The MLM and related companies I know are very honest and have great products. So I guess it should be OK. I was just so confused by the statement on the Host Gator terms section. I certainly did not want to pay for a couple of years, really get going with some websites and then one day find everything was shut down. They told me just ignore it. It will be fine.
