    The Optimized WordPress Hosting on Hostgator is shit. It is supposed to be managed but Hostgator support is now non existent.
    Also used the Business plan web hosting from Hostagor which was also shit but OK for testing and you have access to CPanel.

    If this is your first site then it might be OK for a year while you build up traffic but you will probably want to move after 12 months.

    It is up to you, Web Hosting allows you access to Cpanel and you can install what you like or the Optimized WordPress Hosting is set up for Wordpress already.
    I wasn't impressed with the Optimized WordPress Hosting and the Business Web Hosting was cheaper so it is probably a better bet.

    BUT as I said Hostagator is shit now and only worth it if you are desperate for cheap hosting, better to pay more and get a better service TBH.

    You can install it via cPanel with any package hostgator offers.

    yep. try hosting services listed here in marketplace. I used hostgator for 1 year. not good.
    I'm using poweruphosting (they have a bst here) now. Got no problem so far. Check them first.

    Most probably, they will suspend the account pretty fast.

    Regarding OP's question: I would run fast from hostgator. Their support is very very slow . Would choose a smaller company like bluehost or knownhost...they have some servers which are really optimized for wordpress and they are offering a great support.

    normal baby plan is fine for you , no need to go for optimized hosting, more over they just claim it. actually both are same
