    Just to let you know hostgator sometimes terminates your hosting for no reason.

    Make sure you get a decent and reliable host. Just because hostgator are well known doesnt mean they're the best + You can get cheaper hosting from other companys.

    I believe VCCs can't be used for recurring payments, so keep that in mind where ever you choose.

    Side note: I would also agree with caution towards Hostgator. I've done extensive research on web hosts and while Hostgator received a lot of praise, they also received a lot of complaints. If you didn't need to use support and just used a minimum or resources, you'd fly okay under their radar. However, if you actually tried to use unlimited bandwidth or disk space, or needed support, you were in for a whole different ballgame.

    Good luck

    Any idea on how Netfirms hosting is? I have multiple blogs which I plan to host soon and thought netfirms offered decent prices.

    But make sure that VCC is accepted worldwide.

    just go ahead and buy hostgator and talk with their support that u bought with VCC

    be sure your vcc billing and ur ip location must match.
