    Beware! Worst Ever Hosting Provider
    my webhostingreviews for hostgator
    Worst webhost ever! Their servers can`t even run simple WordPress sites properly. Every 2-3 days my website stopped working. Often MySQL database would stop working. My last year with them was worst suffering. I wasted a lot of time emailing them tickets and calling them. Rankings of my website went became poor due to their server problems. Please don`t go for it. Choose only reputed hosting provider, never trust such liars and their promises.

    I just had horrible expeirence with Hostgater

    I was so excited to make my own website yesterday and signed up for the business account with Hostgater.

    It worked really well and me and my friends started to build a new website together.

    We tried to log in to the account and work on the website today and we were told that Hostgater just canceled my account becuase they can`t detect the IP address where I signed up. And my money C$200 is on pending.

    What I was told after chatting with call center rep for the solution is just signing up for anther account and wait for my money back from the pending one.

    They think that I can get C$200 from anywhere and anytime I want.

    I am so diappointed that they didn`t even contact me and when they cancelled my account by themselves.

    Now I need to wait two weeks more for my money to be refunded and create another account with OTHER WEB HOSTING SITES!

    I think that many reviews here are companies promoting themselves. I do not see how Hostgator can get good rating, it is known for not being... well the best. Their customer service is one of the worst in the industry. You have to submit a ticket for each issue you have, it is impossible to get hold of them over the phone.

    I tried a few times to contact the customer service and complain about sites that I had hosted with them, finally I gave up. They did not understand the issue I complained about. They did not respond fast and it cost me so much more money than I saved on hosting costs. I finally moved a few sites to Inmotion hosting and a few more to just host, and I cannot say that I am super satisfied but I can say that the service I get now is much better. In addition, the important part is that I do not need to contact customer service that much anymore. The sites are not falling as often so I get to be less worried about the quality of the service I am getting. I recommend you all to get pingdom or some other service and measure for yourself if the hosting you get is worth the money you are paying. I got so many messages that I understood that there is a real problem with the service I was getting.
    Also, negotiate the price, it is not what you see online, if you have many sites. Anyhow, not recommending them, but you can try it yourself.

    Lots of reviews here are fake people trying to promote their own hosting affiliate sites. Hostgator is a horrible company. Since they sold out many years ago their customer service is probably one of the worst out there. Not only do they just force you to submit a ticket now, its pointless calling or live chatting with them. Tired of my sites always going offline because of `some issue` with their servers. Ive moved over 20 hosting accounts out of hostgator and will never go back to them.
