Love HostGator! be aware of fees though

I was looking for a host that could handle everything so I had no worries over hiring other people to design, build, and manage everything. HostGator was that answer!

Pros

I can rest easy knowing my visitors' personal data is safe thanks to the SSL certificate hostgator provides for free.

Cons

There are extra fees for add on features such as malware checks and backups.

Reliable Hosting and Domain Name Services

There is no doubt that HostGator is one of the best hosting providers. Hosting plans are available for both Linux and Windows. The Linux hosting plans come with cPanel and Windows Hosting plans come with the Plesk panel. So users can choose whichever server type they required. Additionally, if you need high performance or if you need to host high traffic websites, then you can view the Cloud Hosting plans provided by Hostgator.
