HostGator review or why do I choose HostGator

You can find hundreds of HostGator reviews on the web. In this post I’d like to present my own opinion of why HostGator is a great and reliable hosting company.

Just a few words about my business. I started with a small website with 20 unique visitors a day and naturally hosted my website using local $2/month provider. In time site has grown up and my first provider became too small to host the website. Then I tried many hosting companies, but there always were problems with support or uptime or whatever else. Finally, after turning over dozens of webmaster forums I decided to try HostGator. And it was a hit! At the moment I am using HostGator to host more that 20 websites and I am fully satisfied with it. So what is so great about HostGator?

7 arguments in support of HostGator

  1. Ask for a reliable shared hosting on any webmaster forum and about half of answers would advise to choose HostGator.
  2. HostGator has 24/7 support and they mean it. Your business has no holidays, so must your hosting company.
  3. Every hosting company pretends to have 99.9% uptime. HostGator actually has.
  4. Major webhosting companies offer unlimited disk space and bandwidth. It’s never a 100% truth, but in case of HostGator it is enough to host a website with 10000+ unique visitors a day.
  5. HostGator also provides SEO hosting as well as VPS and dedicated solutions, so there is always a room to grow.
  6. HostGator carefully looks after what sites it hosts. You are never going to have unlawful or harmful websites as your shared IP neighbours.
  7. Using coupon code you can always try HostGator for free during the first month. So there is nothing you can lose by trying HostGator.

Arguments against HostGator

I was trying to recall something I don’t like about HostGator to add some contra arguments, but actually didn’t remember anything. Probably it is the first webhosting company I never have any problems with and it’s a reason why I stay with HostGator.

HostGator Ranks 239 on Inc. 5000

Inc. Magazine just ranked HostGator #239 overall on their prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing privately owned companies in America. Here’s how the companies that make Inc’s list are ranked:

The Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2008 (a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired since that date). Revenue in 2005 must have been at least $200,000, and revenue in 2008 must have been at least $2 million.

Additionally, HostGator ranked #6 in all Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX (Greater Houston area) companies, and #20 out of all companies in our category—Business Products & Services.
HostGator has managed to grow over 896% within the measured 3 year time period. We’ve nearly doubled in revenue from 2007 to 2008.

In 2008, HostGator was ranked at #21 overall. Although 2009’s rank was lower than the previous year’s, we’ve nearly doubled our revenue between the two periods. Despite the job market shrinking across the U.S., HostGator has also created 100 positions for highly qualified technicians and systems’ administrators in the Houston area over the last year.

I think I speak for everyone at HostGator, when I say we’re all really proud to be a part of this company and what we’ve been able to accomplish. The growth simply comes from doing what we’ve always done: providing our clients with reliable web hosting service, 24/7 support, and by offering as many features as possible.

Huge thanks goes to our clients and employees for our continued success.
