  • For the current client using the HostGator domain and WebHost, and website builder, it's too early to tell, as the website is still being built out as an information gateway for colleagues. However, we feel the 2-year initial investment will be a very small expense if the website attracts a minimum of international clients in this first year. We designed the website to be beautiful, which we've found to be lacking in competitors (regulatory specialists).
  • For a current client who prevously used HostGator domain and WebHosting services: the cost of 6 years of HostGator service was negligible compared to $1 million+ in grant, donor, and fundraising income between 2008 and 2016.

  • We hosted our websites pretty inexpensively with HostGator.
  • We set up our sites and didn't have many issues at all after that.
  • HostGator worked behind the scenes and we didn't have to worry about hosting.
  • For $5 a month it was a really great decision.

  • HostGator's introductory pricing does offer an easy entry and lots of functionality.
  • After the introductory period expires, prices go way up.
  • Customer service is very good, both via telephone and chat.

  • Usage of resale options easily quadrupled the money I was spending on HostGator
  • Trust in the host has to be earned, and HostGator has not retained that for me -- it will be a while before I feel confident in their uptime again
  • Overall, HG has been a positive impact on my business as a web developer

  • HostGator allowed us to get into the reseller business and we have seen that division grow every year since we started with them more than nine years ago.

  • HostGator has provided the business with affordable hosting.
  • HostGator has offered great financial incentives (through special pricing on contract renewals) for upgrading every three years, which means our sites have been hosted on increasingly better, faster servers, which improves customer satisfaction (no waiting on page load speeds).
  • HostGator's lack of quality tech support has meant the business owners have had to do more technical troubleshooting when there have been issues rather than focussing on some other aspect of the business.

  • The business cloud plan only provides one free SSL certificate. If you want to add another free SSL certificate to another domain, the fee is $10. If you want to use HostGator's SSL certificate, it is going to be around $50 a year, which is really expensive because nowadays you can easily get an SSL certificate for free. We were very happy with HostGator until we needed another SSL certificate for another domain.
  • Hosting on HostGator give us a peace of mind. We don't need to worry about our website crashing down.
  • The Business Cloud plan is basically unlimited. So we didn't need to worry about hitting the limits.
