HostGator Plans

Hostgator plans have 3 options. The most basic plan starts with a single domain, shared SSL certificate and unlimited disc space and bandwidth. You’ll get everything you need to get started with your website. WordPress hosting, CPanel access and subdomains are all included even with the most basic plan. This all comes with no long term contract, a 99.9% uptime guaranteed and a 45-day money back promise if you are unsatisfied with the service for some reason.

For those who need multiple domains and high-end services, HostGator’s upgraded plans feature private hosting and unlimited domains. You will also get an upgraded customer service plan that gives you your own toll-free number with instant access to specialists whenever you need them.

The HostGator’s medium-level-plan also features some additional add-ons if you need the full business plans, some mid-range customers might have a hard time finding a HostGator plan that is specific enough to their needs.


Hostgator’s plans are competitively priced when compared to other hosting companies. However, the advertised priced on the front page are those you get for signing up for three years at a time. While it’s true that they have no contracts you can’t get the lowest prices without committing to a long-term cycle.

Domain registration and private registration also costs extra. However, since most businesses want to keep their websites for more than a year, the three-year price is a good deal.


Hostgator provides 24-7 support and instant set-up with even their most basic plan. For people who purchase the high-end-plans, they even get their own toll-free number that takes them directly to an agent at Hostgator.  Most customers have no complaints about the service offered at Hostgator. Customers who have run into problems whether they are their own fault or the fault of Hostgator, they have found that the customer service agents can be evasive in their circumstances. The most common complaint is a refusal to let the customer speak to the customer service manager and refusal to give out their full name. However, despite these faults, most users have had their problems dealt with in a timely manner.


Hostgator endeavors to maintain 99.9 uptime. Most users have had little complaints about the service speed and uptime. However, since the basic plan features shared hosting, timeouts do sometimes occur during the peak times. these problems are most common on the lowest level of hosting. When the price of this service is taking into account, the overall value is good of occasional issues that are common to all shared hosting solutions.

Bottom line:

Hostgators entry level plan is not perfect, it does do the trick for companies that have minimal website needs at a great price. The upgraded plan also gives you a lot of your money. Hostgator didn’t get to 12.000 servers and 5 Million sites by doing a half hearted  job. HostGator is a viable and reliable option for your hosting.
