Lousy security

I have close to 50 accounts with host Gator and my accounts get hacked way too often. They always try to blame me for the security breaches, but a few members of the support team finally revealed to me that it is their servers that are being hacked. What bugs the most, is that they try to ignore the problem and blame the clients instead of working on their lousy security. A team of liars is the last thing you want to deal with when you need help the most. Review Added on: 2012-08-17

It is a good host

I think it is a good host. The only negative, you have to tolerate a little bit of downtime or better say it, slow browsing. Comparing with all the other hosts I tried this is the best. Their support is good. Once I messed up my php code and they fixed it, despite that this is not their job. Sometimes they don't give me a clear answer or they confuse me but I think that has to do with the person who is behind the pc as an individual, not with the whole company. In overall the positives are much more than the negatives. It is a trustful company and I recommend it. Review Added on: 2009-08-11

Great Customer Support

I have used Hostgator for about 3 years now.
The very few times I had to get in touch with them - mainly because I was moving sites from one host to another - they were very helpful. So thumbs up for customer support.
New features are implemented to the Control Panel all the time to keep users updated to the latest option in webhosting.
I think is very good value for money. Review Added on: 2009-07-22

Good if you don't ask for help

When you do it yourself it's very good but I have just spent ten days trying to get my sites (with them) transferred to a reseller account (also with them) but it's been, and still is, a nightmare.
Passwords changed without consent, user names changed without consent, technical support who spell beautiful "beutyiful" spell Bangkok "bankok"and Thailand "tieland".
I've spent hours...literally hours on their live chat trying to sort out this mess but they are proving to be hugely incapable of sorting out the smallest of issues.
Like I said, if you set up an account and go with the flow, but if you have any issues...good luck !! Review Added on: 2009-05-21

I switched to Hostgator after about two (2) years with a competitor of theirs. I don't want to say who the competitor is but I must say that Hostgator has them beat by 100% and for just half the cost. The support is second to none and thew down time is non existent. I would recommend the 'Baby' level of hosting at Hostgator to anyone! Review Added on: 2009-04-28

An explendid web hosting company


I purchased recently 3 domain names and 3 hosting services of different providers.

I must say Hostgator has been a nice discovery for me. I am really satisfied with their extremely good service, their fast responses for all my questions about the services they provide (and I have asked a lot of things and doubts).

Hostgator, in my opinion and based on my experience, is a high quality choice.

Cheap, Easy, and Headache Free

After terrible experiences with other hosting companies I switched to HostGator a year ago and I couldn't be happier. Transferring my site was easy, email setup a breeze, and best of all there has been NO downtime! Customer service is polite and solved my billing issue promptly. Highly recommended.
