    I joined HG 3 years ago, moving from a very bad hosting in the UK. Boy, HG rocks. Server uptime is very good, almost never had downtime. Support is very kind and competent and honest as well.

    In the meantime, I convinced my boss and a friend who does hosting to move to HG.

    Really really satisfied.

    Thought I should right a review of HG, since I have been a customer for a while.

    In short: Hostgator rocks. Hands down the best shared host for the money. The servers are incredibly fast, uptime is near perfect, and my favorite part of Hostgator is the support. You can click Live Chat and have a straightforward answer/fix to your problem in a few minutes tops.

    Before Hostgator, I used a host that wasn’t as dreamy as they claimed to be. HG rocks and I recommend them to everyone.

    I have been with Hostgator now since 2005 and I cannot speak highly enough of their service, support and professionalism. Since starting my site back in 1999 I have tried around 4 or 5 different web hosts, and none of them have even come close to Hostgator in terms of features, price and my level of satisfaction.

    I recommend Hostgator to all my clients, friends and colleagues. In fact, a very good friend of mine just bought a reseller package here after I gave HG such a glowing report.

    The few times I have had any problems the support staff have been very quick to respond and extremely helpful, usually resolving the issue within minutes. Uptime has been unprecedented. I recently took over the management of two websites for a local comedy troupe that are served by a different hosting company (I won’t name them here), and in just the last two months the sites have been down for a total of around 24 hours! Compare that to HostGator where in the last four years I’ve probably experienced only about a couple of hours of downtime total for all the sites I’ve got running here – two hours spread across four years! I have made recommendations that I move this client over to HostGator asap!

    As you can tell, I can’t say enough good things about HostGator. In an age where there is so much competition, there is one sure way to retain your customers and get new ones – keep them happy so they spread the word, and HostGator deliver on every front!

    Thank you guys, for the last four years of incredible service, and I look forward to many many more to come!

    While I was with them, Hostgator wasn’t that bad, though I did have problems with them. Their hosting packages clearly oversell, and that makes me weary to how many people are on their host. Their uptime has been decent, but the support has not necessarily been as decent. They didn’t know if they could whitelist my forum which had mod_security errors, and oftentimes, I had to find a solution myself for my problems. They then held my files hostage when I couldn’t pay for their hosting even after telling them with notice, which meant I moved to a different host or paid the $10 late fee. I moved hosts.

    I’ve used HostGator quite a few times! My experience was great, considering I was only hosting one, small forum. Glad it was so small, because I notice once too many users are on at once, the loading times just get slower, and slower, and slower!

    Their support was great. Not only was it swift, but it was 24 hour. Whether it be through e-mail or live. The representatives understood and could write perfect English (thank God!) and if they did not understand or could not help you, would forward you to a representative that could.

    Also, uptime was great. Like I mentioned, my forum would only go down if too much was going on at once. But after awhile, I moved hosts, simply because I needed more room.

    But if you’re a beginner, and need unlimited almost everything, I’d recommend HostGator.

    Cheers!

    This hosting company has decent over all, probably a little better than average but by no means great.

    I still host there, because I think its a good value and don’t need much support or service, but the few times I have needed them, they weren’t all that good.
