    Ok, I need some help here based on your experience on which host is better.

    HostGator just cost more than Dreamhost, but I here Dreamhost is better than than HostGator and the price is much competitive.

    Just need your feedback if Dreamhost is better than HostGator?

    HostGator for sure. I used both few years ago (before starting my own hosting company), dreamhost was very slow at some moments and I really hated their support

    Hostgator has the best customer service even if its pricy I would rather pay something that has a good customer service

    I know that's the one thing that turns me off about DreamHost. They have no phone-support, but their pricing seems enticing.

    Not sure if I'm really going to need phone-support though.

    I've only used HostGator, and never had any problems with down-time, support, billing, etc. Their customer support is excellent.

    Hostgator charge stupid price's for hosting, I'd recommend hostthename.

    I use them personally, the support is amazing and the server's are pretty quick and very cheap :)

    I've only used Hostgator and Godaddy. Had some problems with godaddy because of some autoblog complaints so I moved to hostgator. I've been using them for few years and never had major issues (one that I remember when one of my sites was shutdown because it was eating all server resources :) ).

    straight NO for hostgator.

    They try being too professional you have no idea how many hours of downtime I faced because of them.

    They will shut down your site for any issue & till you speak to them only then will they turn it back live.

    At one stage I lost 48hours of traffic I lost it & told them to cancel my plan, my experience with HG not a good one.

    I have quite a few friends on dreamhost and they seem to think its pretty decent, but they have said it can be a bit slow at times. But there doing alot blackhat things on there and dreamhost doesnt seem to care. Plus I think there pricing is pretty decent in my mind.

    Well hostgator is great, but the only thing that I hate about them is that your account is comsuming more than 25 % resources alocated to every shared hosting they will lock your website and you will lose traffic and ranks in serp. That's the reason why I moved all my websites from hostgator, where I had 3 hostings and had the same problem with all.
    No warning, just locked my website.
