Hostgator has been outstanding in term of server reliability. Personally, I have been with the Gators for the past 7 years (2008 – 2015) and I have to say their uptime record is remarkable.

Overall, [HostGator is] an ideal source for shared web hosting and VPS solutions for bloggers or anyone else. The WordPress support and installation is easy, and the buy-what-you-need approach makes HostGator one of the most appealing options on the market.

It's rare to find such a large hosting company that readily offers efficient live chat and phone support for free. The added extras, such as the eNom account and affiliate programme, make them an ideal choice for a new business that's looking to grow or white-label. All in all, they offer a rounded feature set for a good price with a whole host of extra features to keep loyal customers happy.

HostGator promises 24 x 7 x 365 service – and they actually delivered. I was transferring a development site from my HostGator account to my client's host – and was having a technical problem (turned out to be a misstep I had taken) at 2am. I logged in on chat – and yep, got my questions answered right away. Fabulous.

We have been with HostGator for over 5 years, and they haven't given us a reason to switch. Their always helpful support and server administrators have saved our site in numerous occasions.

I asked around to see which hosts people who were managing their Wordpress sites without breaking the bank were using. It was very clear the budget-friendly, quick, headache-free hosting solution was and is Hostgator. I made the switch, used a very simple and helpful Hostgator article on how to change my DNS (which I had never done before) and I kid you not, within minutes of the DNS change I had Wordpress installed and up and running. When someone asks me about a budget-friendly, super efficient web host (especially for Wordpress) with great customer service, including chat support, I always so enthusiastically say HOSTGATOR!!!

We have a family general contracting business that needed a website to show prospective clients what we can offer. By learning Joomla and building a site on HostGator, I was able to update my resume and get a job as a personal assistant for a very interesting entrepreneur.

HostGator provided me with the platform that allowed me to build an engaging and fun website that customers enjoy browsing. Many of my customers also appreciate how fast the website loads with HostGator's hosting. The HostGator platform transformed my life by allowing me to build a website and consequently an engaging business which nearly paid for my first year university tuition!
