Is there any webhost better than hostgator?

54 replies
Hey Warrior,
Is it only hostgator that's in the world? I've got 25 functional websites with them and I'm yet to have a compliant! Can't there be something up to pal or better? Are they simply the best in the market and all others are just struggling to breath? I'd really like to know.

Really....what better host on earth will successfully knock out hostgator with their array of service at a cheaper price? Let's get it rolling guys!

    I agree, host gator is pretty sweet. I've found cheaper webhosting, but none with an easier interface than hostgator.

    Note, I rep their product, so take this with a grain of salt. I also use it, and couldnt be happier.

    Dreamhost is easier to use. I pay about $10 a month for unlimited bandwidth and storage. One of my sites has over 30 gigs of content, no problems at all.

      You could be paying less than $8 for that and new customers pay less than $5 at Dreamhost
      .

      I use iClickster - their hosting is unbelievably cheap. I doubt there are any hosts that offer yearly prices with unlimited bandwidth and space.

      But their not ideal for domains.. I think I prefer buying from US sites when it comes to domain names, as it works out cheaper and cost effective for me.

    I like Peer1, but then, I own my server. They just assign it an IP address, plug it in, and walk away.

    I like it that way, because then I can do anything I want. I don't have to worry about my host shutting me off, because they have nothing to do with me. If you sent a DMCA complaint about one of my domains to my host, they would throw it away.

    Which makes it next to impossible for someone to harass me through my host. And I like that.

      Actually, many people would disagree with hostgator being the best. I think one of the reason they are quite famous is because of their affiliate program. But of course, if their service is really ****ty, no good affiliate pimping will cover that up.

      But in the end, they are the only hosting company i use.

    I think one of the main reasons for which Hostgator is so popular among IMers is their reseller package. Most IMers have several websites and a reseller hosting package will allow them to have all their sites in the same package.

    Other companies like Bluehost do not offer reseller hosting which could be a turn off. I personally use site5 and I'm really happy with their customer service.

          Bluehost... one of two hosts I know of that load balances and only one that both load balances and uses cpanel. Ask Gaskill for an affiliate link (PM)

          You asked '...that'll knock hostgator off their feet...? If you can tell me, I'll consider dumping hostgator and joining that webhost...'

          And they are cheaper than HG. (As an aside, not that paying $10-20-50 more would not be worth load balancing). As to HG, they recently ... well details are unimportant, lets say 'took advantage of a situation'.

          And from their own company blog!...

    If you ask me I would say no there isn't. You could go with godaddy but I hear their hosting sometimes crashes and don't have that good of customer support, again I don't know that for fact this is what I hear. Hostgator on other hand has good hosting and customer service is great and great prices too.

        Agreed, Buying domains through Host Gator is a bit steep ($15 I think?) but I've had absolutely no problems with their hosting.

        Hmmm... I only have the one site with godaddy but it cost me a few cents over $50 (domain and hosting). I got 5 mentionable freebies with them (10 free credits on fotolia, business registration etc) but the Pièce de résistance was the $125 credit on Google Adwords!

        That's why I was wondering how "good" are these other hosting packages.

          Whatever works for you. All I know is that I have unlimited bandwidth and unlimited domain hosting for 7 bucks a month. And a kickass affiliate program to boot.

          Yes warriors, I rep hostgator. You should too, you can get $125 per sale.

      According to their own company blog, it appears HG is NOT a big established company?

    Bluehost is comparable. Hosting is a small part of the cost of owning your own business, and it's the last thing I'd cut costs on. Your site goes down, you won't make any money. Rackspace is much more expensive, but we use them and they've saved my butt a time or two, essentially providing a level of service and competence I haven't seen anywhere else.

    Hostgator is already one of the cheaper hosting providers around, so I'd caution against just looking around for anything cheaper (if that is your intent).

    What's the point of saving maybe $1 or $2 each month when you may end up not getting the same level of service and customer care that Hostgator providers? Is it really worth taking that chance?

    You say you have 25 sites already up - if this is the case, I'd caution against switching hosts. Transferring this many websites could be problematic and you could run into numerous issues while doing it - is it really worth the risk in interruptions and potential problems with your websites?
