I was unable to find answers to the following on the Hostgator site:

1. Is it Mac OS X10 compatible?

2. What are the main differences (non tech) between the Baby and the Business plans?

    Regarding point 1) Hostgator offers dedicated servers hosting on Linux and Windows operating systems only, so Mac OS X Server is NOT supported. If you are asking if you can use Mac OS X10 as the OS for your own computer in order to use the Hostgator hosting account, the answer is yes, you can (administration is done through http and ftp).

    Point 2):

    The Business plan has these additional features:
    - Free Dedicated IP
    - Free Private SSL
    - Anonymous FTP suport
    and costs 12.95 US$ instead of 7.95 US$.

    I hope these help you.

      Thanks, Sannyman - that was helpful indeed!

      I guess the Baby plan is good enough for me for selling eBooks.

    Mate if I were you I'd go for using HostMonster over HostGator..
    If you want more reasons to stick with HostMonster you should check out this blog post made by a smart dude called John Jonas.
    Here's his blog post about it

    (he has an affiliate link for you to go through but you don't have to- I think he's earned a commission or two with the info he's provided though
