(slow server, hostgator offer unlimited, but, bad support . .if you have several GB / bandwidth, hostgator suspended your account. They have a very slow cpanel (Reading: 2 minutes. On my server: 10 seconds)
Definitely not the service as I've experienced it. Slowness and downtime are very rare occurrences.

They don't suspend accounts on a whim. It would be counterproductive and they're smarter than that (or they wouldn't have grown so fast). If you bring the server to halt they must act though.

Use GoDaddy for your domains. Iím using HostGator now and I have no problems.

I'd have to agree. You can't sustain growth like HostGator has if you have BAD support.

We use godaddy and are pretty happy with it. We find it more than sufficient for our needs. We haven't run into problems with it as far as customer service or troubleshooting goes.

There most likely 2 diffrent companys, One Specializes in Domains and the Other one specializes in web hosting.

GoDaddy; Domains
Host Gator; Hosting

Thats what they are, If you looking for a domain go to GoDaddy for Web hosting go to Host Gator simple...

I would rather choose HostGator. It is one of the most reliable web hosting service I've ever applied before until I don't have budget anymore for my website. They have a great customer service like no other, with 99% uptime as well.

What I really like about HG and That I don't think GoDaddy dose is they have all there workers come to a office meaning like not like other companys the staff member dosen't meet or see there boss.

I'd use HG personally as they are a dedicated hosting provider, whereas GoDaddy is a Domain Provider thus meaning that they mainly specialize in domains and as i've seen before (namecheap) they suffer from downtime.

- Many Thanks

I've just thought of this and got a more better way how to say it its like lets say, Toyota makes cars and K&G makes car parts then they switch it up and Toyota starts to make parts and K&G makes cars, Now both company aren't going to do really really good at it because they are used to doing what they do normal and best.

You're right buddy. HostGator is the best web hosting program I ever used since I managed a forum before. They have a great customer support and 99% uptime as well.

We used to have our servers in the same building as hostgator .. in fact we had one domains hosted as backup sites through hostgator.
Wow not a good idea.

Our experience was not good.
Not everyone would receive our emails.. lost in cyberspace.
Plus our 5 backup sites were down so much, in fact 57percent uptime.

Godaddy is superb for domain registration only and not beyond that.

MOD NOTE: Affiliate links are not allowed.

I wouldn't choose Godaddy for hosting purposes. They are completely fine for domain registrations as pointed out. I don't have any personal experience of hostgator.

I used Host Gator for a short while but their limitations on email made me look for another company.
