Can you tell me your experiences with those two companies regarding reselling packages? I was advised to engage with either of them, since they are both good. But because I'm completely new to all this, those two are the same for me. Can you shed more light on that?

Thanks!

In general, GoDaddy is more highly regarded as a domain registrar and HostGator as a web hosting provider.

Do you want to resell domains or hosting from GoDaddy and HostGator?

Well, actually I want to do both. I also heard that I should go with GoDaddy regarding domain reselling and HostGator regarding hosting reselling. I will have to investigate more.

Well, in terms of reselling hosting, the business model will be every different with the two hosts. With Godaddy you resell their packages and services as you see them on their site. With Hostgator you get a lump of space and data transfer which you can then slice any way you please.

Godaddy is a popular domain provider, with wildwestdomains being their reselling brand I think. Enom is a popular direct competitor of theirs, as is directi.

From personal experience, HG's hosting is far superior.

I like to distribute my odds and that's why I have hosting with two different hosts, GoDaddy and ************. I will try HostGator soon and look into details.

My personal opinion:

GoDaddy - for Domains
HostGator - for Reseller Hosting

GoDaddy has the worst support team for hosting issues. I would choose services as Mike said..

If something is true, that is it! GoDaddy really has the worst support team for hosting issues! I experienced this on my own skin several times.

I use GoDaddy for my domain registrar and have briefly used their hosting. I didn't like the setup of their hosting and couldn't really figure it all out so I went ahead and switched my hosting.

I really hate their organization of features both in control panel and your customer account. I must jump through both of those just to set some of the basic things.

hostgator is very bad hosting. (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)

I think it would be best bet to spend a little more money to find an actual provider that has limitation.

Preferably a non oversold host
