    Hey guys,

    Will Hostgator shut you down for a huge amount of traffic?

    I'm aiming for 2m+ traffic in a 2 week period, each user will be downloading between 500kb-1mb in bandwidth, will this get me shut down?

    If you use their shared hosting packages, then chances are very high they will ban the account for excessive usage. You can talk to their support before using their hosting.
