VPS hosting Joomla at HostGator - your opinions


I’m considering buying a VPS hosting for my Joomla application on HostGator (http://secure.hostgator.com/dforward.php?page=index.php3&gclid=CLH-0Pu_oqMCFY4A4wod-DIV2w). Do you have any experience/opinions about that provider?


I don’t have any experience with their VPS service but I have put several clients on their shared service and even have at least one or two shared accounts myself. The shared service is good, a bit slow to respond compared to some of the other guys I use with less volume but very little downtime. I think I might have recorded one short period of downtime over two or three years.

That said, I have to say they offer fantastic technical support. I’ve been in touch with them about really esoteric (out of the ordinary) technical requests and they’ve been quick to respond and they’ve gone out of their way to help me out. I recommend them based on that.

I host all my websites on a VPS with LiquidWeb.com. The only reason that I use them is because they have 24 hour customer service, and they aren’t as big as HostGator.

In my opinion, I might be paying a bit more, but getting someone on the phone with 0 hold times is worth the price.

Just my $0.02.
