HostGator runs a popular web hosting service and I used their services for seven months now and, perhaps, its installation that I can write a review based on my experience of their service. The examination is based on the Baby Croc package which I use and my experience of their support services.
Let me begin by saying that the plan price I opted for is great. For $ 9.95 monthly subscription paid by paypal. HostGator offers the possibility of any contract, monthlysubscription system. In essence, you can pay on a monthly basis without being engaged in a long term contract. This is great for experimenting with the Web, after all, if you need to change your plans, you are not tied to a long term contract and can quickly move your site. It is likely that if things are going well, this is not an option is likely to seriously consider taking.
The heart of the hostgator shared hosting package is your cPanel control system. Croc with babypackage, can host an unlimited number of domains theory have unlimited mysql database, all the traffic that I can squeeze in 6 GB and 6 GB of disk space for my sites files.Its audacious bid, his most great site for webmasters and small business a fair size could easily manage a business on this package. Amazingly, everything worked, I know because I explored the outer limits of this package within 7 months I have had. Its unlikely that the average new webentrepreneur even come close to depletion of resources with this package.
Other highlights of hostgator 's implementation include cPanel Fantastico, this is the script that allows you to install a number of popular web applications with the click of a button. Wordpress, a popular web application is very Blogg including the implementation Fantastic Hostgator.
PhpMyAdmin is the control system configuration of MySQL. As most people know of the MySQL database, phpMyAdmin is aawesome tool to manipulate the data stored in MySQL. Cpanels backup system is great. Selecting some options, I could back up all files within my ftp folder. This backup can then be downloaded on my personal PC, of course, like most web hosting, Hostgator performs its own regular backup. Web mail is available in three flavors, I tried all three and work, would be excellent for webmasters who want to collect your mail while away from your main computer. This configuration offers cpanel trafficstatistical software in the form of AWStats, Webalizer and a log manager. I was pleasantly surprised at how I could get details for each domain that I setup.
The only thing I do not like cpanel is its implementation of the dns control. You do not have direct access to records, MX DNS control is exercised, as I say, with the addition of domain and subdomain add controls. These seem to generate DNS records to make this happen shares. Dns any other substances,the user must raise a support request. This is only a problem for the user is presented with complete technical mastery, but for the average web master, this note does not really matter, provided that the underlying DNS record generation tools work properly.
Technical support, mostly via secure web chat, it works very well. I used to have technical support via telephone, and was initially very skeptical about the web chat support. But it really works. It may sometimes have to askoperator for an answer, but that is like "hello there are still there" you on the phone. Hostgator also offers phone support and email, and I used them on occasion and WAS Their quick response.
Sites that I enjoy about hostgator wonderful time, I have yet to load them. There were a couple of occasions when the server response was rather slow. However, this would probably account for about one hour every month I had thepackage. All in all, I enjoyed the package hostgator, and now, can safely recommend to others.
