    It's fine. Not the fastest and not the slowest. Decent cpanel interface, support is great.

    Fast, No downtimes Good for Wordpress, Great Support, So far No Problem I recommend them. But what I don't like is their verification they ask for Passport or Drivers License. But a quick social engineering will do the trick.

    I had no problems with them in shared and reseller hosting.
    But beware of their TOS especially the usage limits!

    Well, to be clear,

    Hostgator sucks big time for Wordpress sites! :)

    All other CMS or whatever is perfectly fine with Hostgator, but Wordpress on HG sucks big time!

    There have been many threads about it, and I have experienced it myself!

    They are pretty good.. One of the fastest that I have tried for Sharing Hosting.

    Custom support is GREAT! They were fast enough to solve a complex issue within 20 minutes of emailing them.

    I had 50 WP sites on Hostgator for 2 years

    had no downtime whatsoever and any issues that came along hopped onto chat and it was resolved in 20 minutes at the most.

    compared to these VPS providers I have used - that crash every 2 days or are never up - or there is always a problem

    this was something that never happened at Hostgator on a shared plan


    so I am a huge thumbs up for hostgator - unless your site is copyright infringement or some other BH type site.

    Never had any downtime, but sometimes my sites are too slow. If your looking for solid cheap hosting, then HostGator is the deal.

    If your going to be running some serious ppc or expect high volume traffic, get a vps from decent provider like wiredtree or knownhost. Cost more, but you dont want to be spending ppc cash and find out your site was unavailable due to shared hosting
