    Is there any way to sign up with hostgator so that they don't ask for photo ID verification? I signed up with an unverified paypal and used a coupon to get 1 month of hosting for only 1 cent .. and this is the first time I signed up with them and i used fakenamegenerator...

    oh.. if your account is on hold. just call them and ask. Tell them that you need your account verified so you can start your web site building.
    they might tell you that you should wait 24-48 hours, but that is bs. let them know that you want to get this done today and you should ask them
    what ways you can verify your account so this process doesn't take so long. They are pretty understanding

    I think that might raise some of their eyebrows.

    You used fake name generator along with an unverified paypal, that's enough red marks to raise a flag. If you had used the same information as in paypal you wouldn't have gotten it, probably.

    Apparently, HG will give you also a phone call after you purchase a shared hosting with them, if your main domain name contains word "hosting" in it. They will tell you, that you are not allowed to commercially host other people's websites, and advise you to upgrade to a reseller hosting package.
