Hostgator is probably the best web host I have every hosted with. I had no downtime problems and their support is great. The only downside is that they have a long waiting time for their support. Hostgator is recommended for anyone who wants to start a personal or a business website. I would happily recommend them to everyone.

Since hostgator is as big as godaddy, i wud compare the two. Hostgator’s support is excellent but during peak hours the wait can be extraordinary whereas godaddy’s support is not a lot but a bit better. Speed is not excellent but above average, compared to godaddy its better in the speed department. As far as reliability goes, hostgator is the host to choose, I’ve noticed downtime on godaddy but have never experienced any downtime on my hostgator website. Speed is a tiny bit better than godaddy. Overall it is one of the top hosting companies, but compared to godaddy it a tiny bit better.

I first signed up on a shared hosting account with Hostgator about 4 years ago. I subsequently started doing web development work and signed up for a reseller account to host my clients websites on. And now just 3 months ago I bought a VPS (Virtual Private server) with Host Gator to host a site on Magento which required a bit more grunt in the hosting. I have had an amazing experience with Host Gator. I have in the past had reseller accounts with Micfo and HostDime but they were very far away from the reliability and setup that Hostgator has. I would recommend Hostgator to both businesses and individuals!

Hostgator rocks. Hands down the best shared host for the money. The servers are incredibly fast, up time is near perfect, and my favorite part of Hostgator is the support. You can click Live Chat and have a straightforward answer/fix to your problem in a few minutes tops. Before Hostgator, I used a host that wasn’t as dreamy as they claimed to be. HG rocks and I recommend them to everyone.

Dont waste your time with all these other hosting companies who have people leaving bogus positive reviews. HostGator is the ONLY company you need to host your website. I recent;y moved my website from a nightmare experience with Justhost.com to HostGator. I was very reluctant to believe any of the positive reviews i read about Hostgator especially after reading the same for Justhost. After moving my site in 7 hours, and the great customer support from HostGator, i am happy to say that I am here to stay for good!! This is the most stable, fastest, most reliable hosting service i have ever experienced. Their servers are high power and not oversubsribed. I even had comments from people overseas accessing my site asking what had changed since the overall performance skyrocketed!!
