    I've been using HostGator for a while now on the baby plan(1site only) and I find it great :)

    But today I've bought a new domain and want to start setting it up.

    I was talking to HG support just there and they didn't really help(usually do :p ).

    But a few months ago they told me it would be an extra $1 a month if I wanted to upgrade.This seems pod but others are saying it's $3 :/

    Don't know if I'd be happy with $3 a month since this site will be a bit of a gamble if it will make money.

    Thanks

    Yeah.
    It's just kind of annoying that someone with 100 sites pays the same as me (with 2 sites lol)

    The baby plan has unlimited sites. It is the hatchling plan that only has 1 site. The baby plan is $6.36 according to hostgator, and the hatchling plan is $3.96. The difference between the two is $2.40/month.

    If you're willing to pay $3.96 for one site, then it is a bargain to pay less than twice that for two sites.

    Also, I have 96 sites, but I don't pay $6.36 for hosting. Most people with 100 sites don't stay on the baby plan unless their sites see no traffic.

    Sorry

    Meant to say I'm on the hatchling plan.

    I suppose it might be worth it to pay the extra since HG make it say easy to install WP and are always on live support to help.

    Actually,upgrading to the baby plan won't slow down my first site would it ?

    My first site is in the top 4 for a term with 7000 exacts and I really think the speed of the site helps it a lot. It only has around 25 articles on it with a few new ones per month

    No, upgrading won't slow you down.
