HostGator web hosting
HostGator.com has become one of the leaders in the web hosting industry mainly because they do their job properly, eg. If you have a problem you can actually get in-touch with them and get it fixed that day, they have a ticket system for live chat or email so you do have to wait in a Que but this is usually not to long, their customer service reps are pretty good, and any problems i’ve had, have been resolved very quickly. They provide a high quality hosting service at a reasonable price unlike many other hosting services, hence Hostgator’s success.
Their website is very simple and easy to understand without frills. They offer three hosting plans at very reasonable prices, starting with the “Hatchling plan” this gives you a single domain, unlimited disk space and bandwidth with shared SSl certificate, if you take a three year membership the price starts at $3.96 per month.
The next is the baby plan, this gives you unlimited domains, unlimited disk space and bandwidth again with shared SSL certificate, with a three year plan this comes in at $6.36 per month.
Last but not least is the Business plan with unlimited domains, disk space and bandwidth, this time with a free private SSL certificate and a free toll free number. with three year this comes in at $10.36 per month.
The payment system is very simple, they except credit and debit cards as well as paypal, which is good news, with little to no advertising.
The Hostgator control panel is fairly standard and easy to use with some nice features such as Free SEO tools – Get in google – Increase website traffic – Google site maps – Link building – Facebook traffic and SEO tips. Also you have Fantastico as one of the software services which is very useful for WordPress.
The Hostgator affiliate program is fairly good with consistent payouts to those who promote the Hostgator product line by placing affiliate links on their website. They have a large selection of banner adds and buttons to help sell their products and like many affiliate programs the more you sell the higher the percentage of commission payout there is.
