HostGator is one of the most popular web hosting company that offers reliable web hosting. I am using the shared hosting plan of Hostgator from past few years without any problem. In this post, I will write overview of Hostgator hosting service in detail and also my personal experience with Hostgator. Hostgator offers shared hosting, VPS hosting, Dedicated web hosting and Reseller. But I am writing the full review based on my personal experience with shared hosting baby plan.
General Features of HostGator
|Control Panel||cPanel||Data Transfer||Unlimited|
|Hosting Contract||Nil||Add-on Domains||Unlimited|
|PHP 5/ Perl||Python/ Ruby On Rails|
|Curl/ Image Magick||Audio & Video Streaming|
There are some other features that includes:

- MySQL Transfer
- Google Adwords Credit Free $100
- Free Website Templates
- Free Website Scripts
- Script Transfer
- Domain Transfer
- Unlimited Sub-domain

It offers shared hosting, VPS, Dedicated and reseller hosting. They offer Linux and Windows server both. But Linux server is better for WordPress websites. In shared hosting, It also has three three different sub packages ( Hatchling, Baby and business plans). All these plans comes with unlimited bandwidth and unlimited storage.
After reading all these feature, you will say that there are so many web hosts that provides these features for the lesser price. Then why we should go for Hostgator. Is this only the name of company or anything else? No people are not running after the name, they have something which is hard to find in less popular hosts. These are:
- Good Customer Support
- Reliability (Approx 99.9% up time)
- Discount coupons
These are the main things which we must care before going to purchase a web hosting.
