Hosting Review: Host Gator

People can’t say enough good things about Host Gator, which was founded in 2002 and has grown tremendously in the short time since.

With its long list of awards, 24/7 live support and affordable hosting packages chock full of useful features, Host Gator is quite popular among top web hosting companies.

One of the best features of Host Gator, however, is its affiliate program which allows resellers, most of whom are longtime Host Gator clients, to make up their own “packages” for resale, making it one of the most popular hosting affiliate programs on the market.

Price Value
Host Gator’s reliability and customer service have kept the company popular. Host Gator clients can enjoy an abundance of space and bandwidth, plus loads of great features. Host Gator also offers an array of “reseller packages,” on top of their traditional hosting packages, which are great for those who looking to make money through new and innovative affiliate programs.

Reliability
Host Gator stands by its 99.9 percent uptime guarantee and, to date, few users have complained about the company’s reliability. Host Gator’s datacenter, located in Dallas, Texas operates behind a fully redundant Cisco Network which boats up to 10 backbone providers, ensuring that Host Gator’s uptime promise is never broken.

Control Panel
Host Gator clients use the ever popular cPanel control panel. CPanel is one of the simplest and most widely used control panels on the market today. CPanel offers a simple, clean graphic interface with great front-end features like PGP management, crontab tasks, mail and FTP account management, and tons of extras. CPanel is perfect solution for any level of expertise. In addition, Host Gator also offers a great web page builder program with some of its higher-priced packages.

Customer Support
When it comes to customer support, you can count on Host Gator. With 24/7 support via online chat, ticket systems and a tool free number, there is always someone on the other side ready and willing to answer your questions. Host Gator’s customer support staff is prompt, friendly and knowledgeable.
