Worst Host out there

I was with HostGator for 6 months. How I lasted 6 months, I will never know. They are absolutely useless. Thousands of websites went down for over 24 hours and they just respond with generic answers to every single question. That was the last straw for me. I moved to a different host. I think it was worried that the migration would be a mess. It was easy and I had my website on a different host even before HostGator was back up. I will never in my life use them again. They may have had a good name, but it's certainly not the case anymore. The host I use now responds within 1-2 minutes and they are very competent. Spare yourself frustration and hours of work and just use different host.

Awful Hostgator

The user interface for web hosting is badly programmed way too many issues. So many issues with configuration every problem needs to be solved in 3 to 4 days. While you upload your web site an ugly looking JavaScript will pop up in your face which does not even describe the nature of the problem. You have to provide your credentials on each request to your web site. I think this is the first issue which I face. Than I thought that if I am not able to make a web site in asp.net than I can make a web site in Word press. I installed the Word press plug-in after few seconds I started to face internal and external errors which were so bad that I cancelled the Hostgator account.

Not good for Magento 2

As a startup about to launch in May, I chose to use Hostgator largely due to reviews on the web and pricing. However, if you are building a Magento 2 site I cannot recommend HG at all for the following reasons: * The Magento 1 click install is not seamless and not optimised. * The site was slow (even when a base install). Many times I couldn't even get in to admin it was so slow. Further I would constantly get "site not found" page for about 1-2 secs when loading the main site. Positives are price (but that is kind of useless if site is slow) and support (who were always quick to help). I have now joined SiteGround on their Shared plan and I do not have the issues I had with my website and admin with Hostgator. Further Magento was super easy to install as were SSL Certificates, and SSH is much more secure.

Unfair business practices and horrible customer service

I paid 1500 bucks. The video I posted at youtube just about says it all. After 2 months, Hostgator has told me there's nothing they can do, and NO, I cannot have my money back. In other words, they Hostgator has taken my money and run for the hills. youtube.com/watch?v=GzhcvLx-Bwo
