UPDATE – July 2013 – HostGator sold last year to Endurance International which also owns brands such as BlueHost and FatCow, and is no longer the best hosting company. In fact, they’re becoming the worst hosting company next to GoDaddy. Since the acquisition it’s been a drag to say the least. They are now in the practice of overselling their hosting services which is typical of many hosting companies but was something Brent Oxley didn’t allow, hence the reason HostGator became the best in the world. #hostgatorsucks

We’ve been using HostGator since it’s beginning in 2002 when Brent Oxley, a student at Florida Atlantic University created it. Within 4 years HostGator grew to 200,000 in registered domains and today hosts nearly 10 million domains. From a one-man show to an industry leader and game changer, I’ve seen HostGator grow and handle it better then any hosting company I’ve done business with to date. June this year HostGator was sold for $225 million USD to EIG.
I’ve liked HostGator over other companies because they have provided great hosting services at competitive prices. From my own personal experience they’ve been able to maintain high employment retention which helps in being the best in the industry.
Our experience with HostGator includes nearly all their plans including dedicated servers. For someone just getting started in web development, web design, or web hosting, or even affiliate marketing, I recommend the Reseller Hosting plan. If you’re a small business, I’d recommend working with an experienced web hosting or design company that utilizes HostGator servers.
Why HostGator is the BEST Web Hosting Provider What makes HostGator the best reseller hosting provider and web hosting provider is their server location and configuration. In addition, they have highly skilled and creative System Administrators and staff that offer some of the best support in the industry. HostGator has a wide range of plans that provide you an inexpensive hosting plan that allow you room to grow as a business or web services provider. The biggest thing that makes HostGator better than it’s competitors is it’s level of customer service. They have in-house, English speaking support staff that are helpful, knowledgeable and available 24/7. HostGator seems to be a company that values it’s customers which sets it apart from other industry leaders.
