I'm with Hostgator and can say I'm really happy with them so far (been about 6 months). They were there when I needed them on Boxing Day to help me move a site and they're always pretty helpful.

Uptime has been good - no complaints from me.

I used Hostgator for a month about a year ago, It was nice but I just felt like another statistic to them. So I moved to a smaller company and HostGator is still invoicing me last time i check they want me to pay them over $300 to release the files and that was after I canceled. To bad I moved.

I've heard how good Host Gator is till I tried them out myself.

Host Gator is LOUSY in their customer service.

Please see transcript below:-

Chat Start Date: May 23 2010 2:13:19 AM
(2:13:24 AM) Sean Va: has entered the chat.
(2:13:28 AM) Sean Va: Hello, welcome to Live Chat. My name is Sean and it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
(2:13:34 AM) Sean Va: How may I assist you?
(2:13:47 AM) Karen: can you recommend me plan for my requirments.
(2:14:49 AM) Sean Va: I'm afraid that only the Sales Dept can to that, which would require an email to, officially. Unofficially, please tell me your requirements and I'll make an unofficial recommendation, just to give you an idea.
(2:15:14 AM) Karen: i thought this is sales cos i chose sales to talk to...
(2:15:44 AM) Karen: I have selected sales just now.
(2:16:20 AM) Sean Va: We are Technical Support, though we handle many presales questions which is why the chats route to us, the actual Sales Dept is unavailable via Live Chat, I do apologize.
(2:16:50 AM) Karen: but then I did choose Sales just now when I first enter the chat room.
(2:17:42 AM) Sean Va: Yes, we answer many Sales question, despite being technical support.
(2:18:23 AM) Karen: so, please recommend me a plan...because if customer is not allow to talk to chat line for sales related...then please take off sales there.....
(2:19:05 AM) Karen: PLEASE SPECIFY customer can't choose sales when talking to Chat line so that we will know.
(2:19:59 AM) Karen: so, if you have answered many Sales question, why are you not answering my question ?
(2:20:21 AM) Sean Va: Because your request for a recommendation needs to go to the Sales Dept, officially.
(2:20:36 AM) Sean Va: I'm happy to answer your question, you haven't yet stated your requirements for me.
(2:21:07 AM) Karen: Then, Please specify it in your website...... i have stated the requirements before i was entreing the chat...can you check...because this is asked by your chat console !!!
(2:21:48 AM) Karen: i think this is saving the console is designed to ask us to type the question first....dont' you know...are you new or trying to be difficult with me ?
(2:21:58 AM) Sean Va: java on tomcat and database - ms access
(2:22:13 AM) Sean Va: Java is not supported on any Shared Plan, so you would need at least a VPS.
(2:22:14 AM) Karen: There, you know. So, why did you ask again ???
(2:22:38 AM) Sean Va: If by MS, you mean anythign Windows then you would need a Windows Dedicated Server.
(2:23:07 AM) Karen: what is MS?
(2:23:08 AM) Sean Va: Because what I pasted there isn't a clear statement relatuive to your question, it's a list of features.
(2:23:18 AM) Sean Va: Sometimes Microsoft.
(2:23:40 AM) Karen: wat do you mean by Sometimes Microsoft?
(2:24:47 AM) Sean Va: When people say MS, oftentimes it is short for MicroSoft.
(2:24:56 AM) Sean Va: What do you mean by MS, please?
(2:25:22 AM) Karen: I put down MS access, please see know...your service sucks....
(2:25:48 AM) Sean Va: So MS Access is Microsoft Access. You need a Windows Dedicated Server.
(2:26:06 AM) Sean Va: Access is a verb as well as a product. You were not clear.
(2:26:43 AM) Karen: I have put down MS access together. Your English is very BAD !!!
(2:27:03 AM) Sean Va: Is there anything else I may assist you with at this time?
(2:27:35 AM) Karen: I'm going to send your name Sean Va to all web hosting reviews website and tell the world your service sucks !!!

Actually the tech handled this very well.
Looks to me like you intended to act like a jerk and you succeeded.
They are probably better off without your business.
I know I sure wouldn't want you bothering my tech people.

LOL kudos to that answer!

First thing that popped in my head after reading that live chat transcript was "Wow..What a JERK!".

Tangara...You didn't even acknowledge the fact that he was trying to answer your question and recommend you a plan, and also explained "perfectly" why they have "Sales" in the live chat. Seems to me you were really just trying to be a jerk to post the transcript here....

I like Hostgator, help when needed etc. I'm still with them as well, been paying for about a year? I'd recommend this site to anyone. (Using their shared hosting)

Lately their performance wasn't the best. Maybe just the server my account is on , but not looking too good.

If you don't mind my asking, what do you currently have with them? (Dedicated Server, VPS, Shared..)
I would like to know this to.
