Our Review Of Hostgator
Hostgator has very good reputation for many reasons. One of them is their customer support. They have over 700 employees to provide the support and you have the option to contact directly the company owner if you are not satisfied with the regular support.
Hostgator customers can manage their website setting, email accounts, install free php scripts etc. using cpanel, the most used hosting control panel. Cpanel allows to create website backups easily, so if you decide to move your domain to another web host, it may be no problem.
They do not limit you with the disk space and bandwidth. Also the number of ftp accounts, MySQL databases and pop3 accounts is unlimited. Many open-source scripts can be installed using their installer (so you do not need to understand to php to run a website like Wordpress blog, Joomla or Drupal CMS, Magneto or Wiki).
It is also worth to mention you can receive your email to your phone via IMAP support. Hostgator provides automatic weekly data backups. Developers may enjoy cron jobs, curl, CPAN, GD Library, ImageMagick, CGI, Fast CGI, PHP 5, Ruby on Rails, Perl, Python, SSI or SSH.
