Host Gator Review

Before going ahead with the review, an update on some of their current promotions. As you can see from their banners to the right and below, HostGator is offering an excellent price tag of $3.95/month on their WordPress Hosting package. If you are not familiar with WordPress , it is a free Content Management platform that you should definately be using to build your sites … feel free to read up on it HERE

I also have a couple of coupons for HostGator that you might want to try for an additional discount when getting any of their Hosting packages – just copy and paste to see if they work:

Receive and additional $9.94 OFF Coupon Code: gatorcde610
Receive and additional $9.94 OFF Coupon Code: gatercd811mb
Receive and additional 25% OFF Coupon Code: gater25mb0811
Receive and additional 20% OFF Coupon Code: SPRING (I believe this one is their latest promo)

In my opinion, Host Gator offers a lot for the buck. It has good customer service, good prices, and a lot of different options to choose from. Most importantly for me is the fact that they use cPanel for their admin area.

If you are not familiar with what cPanel is, I’ve put together a page with a summary of what cPanel does. Lets just say that you do not want to waste your time with a hosting company that does not provide you with cPanel for administrative purposes.

I put Host Gator at the top of my list, primarily because you get what you pay for. Over the years, they have received numerous Web Hosting Awards. They also boast 130% green energy from windmills … whatever 130% really means. The company is based out of Houston, Texas, and has been around since 2002. Their Web Hosting Plans vary by the type of plan you select and the contract length you choose. Of course, the longer the contract, the cheaper the going rate.

Much like Host Papa, their plan features are rich and provide a novice or a seasoned programmer and developer with a huge selection of features, mainly because of the use of cPanel. Scripts for things such as WordPress, Joomla,OS Commerce, and many more are easily installed with just a few clicks of a button without having to know anything about PHP or setting up databases.

So if you are looking for anything from Web Hosting, to Reseller Hosting and Dedicated Servers, Host Gator won’t disappoint.

You can check out their site by using the banner below.

Also don’t forget to check out the latest coupons or promotions these guys are offering. I try to keep these current, but there might be some you’ll find elsewhere that aren’t here. If so, it would be nice to let me know : )

UPDATE: HostPapa is currently running a promotion that beats any HostGator deal at the moment, with unlimited addon domains on a single account, plus you get a free domain name on top of it … CHECK IT OUT
