What's negative with Host Gator?

I have heard pretty good things about Host Gator. They seem to be a pretty decent company and have a good hosting service.

What are the negatives of having them host your website? Has anyone come across anything negative about them when working with them?

I have been with them for more than a year and have nothing negative to say.
And I’m not the only one that’s experienced great service. If you’re thinking
about going with them, I suggest you give them a try. If you don’t like them,
you can claim the 30-day refund.

I’d like to say that no company is perfect. :wink:

If you’re after a perfect host, there are none. :wink:

Even though I can say I had an excellent time with HG, there still were some small bumps in the road, like some short downtimes.

On any host, carefully read customer reviews and the host’s rebuttal, if one is available. The bigger the host, the higher the probability of something slipping through the cracks. It’s a numbers game.

Haven’t experienced anything terrible with HG. I am happy with the kind of service/support they offer!

its my fifth months with hostgator. And blogged all my experience with them.
So far, they are solid hosting provider.

Where do I find reviews? On their own site or other places?

There are quite a few reviews on webhostingtalk.com. You may want to do a search there.

I switched my large site last night to their swamp package and the site is running faster than ever.

I too recently moved from asmallorange to HostGator’s Swamp package. They have been very good so far and saved me the trouble of moving my site over as they did it free of charge, databases and emails included :slight_smile:

So far I would definitely recommend them.

In all fairness, the server you’re on might not be marked as “full” yet, so what will be the regular load and performance on it, is to be truly determined somewhere in the future. Good to hear it’s all good so far though. :slight_smile:

their reseller is a little pricey

What do you consider pricey?

hostgator’s good…got some very good market reputation…good luck

I don’t have any negatives about hostgator either.

Although I’ve only been with them for about 4 months, there service has been second to none - I’ve had a few questions when setting up my website www.ebabycentre.com and they’ve answered them all promptly and correctly.

I would def recommend them as a hosting coy.

i just want to say host gator has worked very well for me but somtimes the downtimes can be annoying. :slight_smile:
