Hostgator Review

Budget Web Hosting Services


Hostgator provides everything you need to get your web business up and running.

User Friendly

Very good customer service.

cPanel user interface is daunting for newbies.


Simply fantastic value for money.

Summary:  Hostgator is the 'daddy' of big box hosting companies. Founded in 2002 they had built a stellar rep for service and reliability.

Sold in 2012 to Endurance International Group (EIG) Hostgator's service rep has taken a bit of a beating.

If you just need a website without bells & whistles Hostgator is a good choice.

Hostgator - A Better Alternative


I've has about 10 years experience with Hostgator, and would say they are a very good basic hosting provider.

They also good if you're a techie and know your way around all the cPanel scripts you have access to.

However as an affiliate marketer, the core components of my business are...

1. Website (WordPress)

2. Lead capture ​(Thrive Leads plugin or standalone service such as Leadpages)


3. Email Automation services (Active Campaign)​

What I always wondered was why hosting providers didn't offer customers an integrated solution, rather than make us source all the separately pieces and try and make them play nice together?
