    Host Gator

    I just wanted to say I have used hostgator and I have been very happy with them. We really have not had any downtime and the support has been pretty good.

    Glad to hear you're or have been a happy camper there. Please post a domain that you've been hosting with them to validate your review.

    How long have you been their customer? How do you monitor uptime?

    Sign up with one of free uptime checking website and be alerted immediately by email or SMS text message whenever your site has problems. One of an example is http://basicstate.com/.

    The same will happen on any <$10 shared hosting package. You can't run a busy site on that kind of budget, it's just the way it is.

    In what sense? Are their responses not good anymore, or you can't use the live chat feature? If the first, how did they change? If the second, did you try using another browser or upgrading your current browser to the latest version?

    I run a reasonably sized site (50Gb bandwidth a month) on a shared HostGator with no problems. The online support is excellent. Compared with UK-based hosts, HostGator is miles ahread.
