Why You Should Switch to Hostgator

Last week I switched hosting companies and it was the best decision I could have made. I wish I had of done it sooner! Fat Cow was a terrible experience for me and I feel so much better now that I am on Hostgator. I have only heard good things about them! If you are thinking about switching  hosts, Hostgator is awesome!

Some of the benefits and features of Hostgator that I liked are:

  • Unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwith
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee (unlike Fat Cow which was going down almost daily for me)
  • 45 day money back guarantee
  • 24/7/365 Technical support via phone or chat (they have been so helpful and answered all my questions about my transfer).
  • One of the world’s largest hosting companies with over 400 employees (who know what they are doing!)
  • Easy to use control panel

They have three plans you can purchase- the Hatchling Plan, the Baby Plan and the Business Plan. I purchased the Hatchling Plan (the smallest one) which is perfect for me. It’s good for people with a single domain.

    Hi Stacie – I switched to wordpress and moved to HostGator as well, thanks to your suggestion last week! :) Wish I had had that coupon code. . . :( I picked the business plan so that I can add an online store to my blog and have multiple websites if I i’d like to.

    I’ve been with Hostgator over a year now with my self-hosted WordPress sites. LOVE them! I’ve had 2 issues total in the time I’ve been with them but 1 was related to the last WordPress release update and not them. They’ve always been quick to fix anything or answer my questions.

        I was with the most #craptastic host Surpass Hosting. They are fine for shared servers i guess but for dedicated servers i cant do it. My site has been down for 7 hours now because of this. They are saying my traffic is causing all these problems. Well you get more than us so why dont i ever see your site down you know? Ugh! Thank you for saving me LOTSSSS of money :D lol
