Have you started a blog and are in search of a great web-hosting? Then today I will discuss about reviews of a great shared web-hosting provider’s i.e. Host-Gator(We eat up the Competition). Get to know about this web-hosting and also the benefits and disadvantages of this Web-hosting. Why more than 8 million people have hosting on Hostgator. Here are the reviews for Hostgator.
Disclosure: I have used the hostgator Hosting from last two years and this review is on the basis of that. We are affiliate partners of hostgator and we earn a commission on every hosting you buy from our affiliate link of hostgator.
Hostgator was a company that was started in 2002 by current CEO Bret Oxley when he was studying in university. Till now more than 8 million people enjoy their services. They provide three different shared web-hostings: Hatchling, Baby and business. They also provide re-seller plans , dedicated servers, and also affiliate program( which is great).
There services have spread over entire globe in a bout 200 countries.
Now lets start with features of Hostgator.
They provide three different types of hosting plans as I discussed above. These are Hatchling, Baby and business plans. Each plans have few features that are better than previous.
The first plan is Hatching which is basic plan with one domain support with no add on domains. For more domains you can upgrade to baby and business plan. But of you want this hosting for a blog then this is the best hosting for you. They provide unlimited disk space for each of the hosting plan and also bandwidth is unlimited.
Features of Hostgator
1. Control Panel features : 4.5/5 stars
Hostgator’s provide c-panel for the hosting, This is made such that it is not that difficult to handle it. You can easily perform your functions. You can get website statics: AW stats, Webalizer, Raw log manager and error logs. It provides instant shopping carts, blogs, portals, counters and for mails.It provides web-based file manager, Hotlink protection and many more features. So, we can say it is a great web-hosting with all features.
So, in my view I would provide: 4.5/5 stars to hostgator interference.
2. Pricing: 3/5 stars
If we talk of the cost then its little bit more then other host providers but hosting features are worth this price. But if you buy the hosting pack for three years then you will get the plan only for $3.96 per month, where as if we talk of one year pack then we will have to buy the pack for $5.56 per month.
So, if we talk of price it is little more but if you want a great web-hosting for your website then don’t think twice before buying this great web-hosting.
3. Customer Support : 2.5/5 stars
We need customer support very rarely as mostly we cope up with problems on our own. But if you want customer support then, I will tell you that their customer support was great 2 years ago but now by reviews of many people I have searched that they are not so satisfied with their customer care. So, I will give only 2.5 stars to their customer support.
4. Performance of hosting: 5/5 stars
If you will apply their hosting to your domain then you will find that you will get a high loading speed for your website. They provide a great loading speed. So, must say that performance is great of this web-hosting. I will give this feature 5/5 stars.
5. Affiliate Program: 5/5 stars
They provide a great affiliate program, which can help you earn lots and lots of money. You can check for there referral plans on Hostgator
official site. But for this I will award them 5 out of 5 stars.
6. Programming and Database features: 4/5 stars
They provide unlimited MySQL databases with phpMy admin access. CGI, Fast CGI, PHP 5, Python and some more programming languages are used and provided. It also provides features like frontpage extension.
So, would like to rate it 4 out of 5 stars.
Overall: 4/5 stars
So, at last I want to say that
this is a great web hostings providers. If you are want to make your website fastest and under great host provider then this is best choice for you all. So, over all-stars that I will offer to Hostgator is 4 out of 5 stars.
