Full HostGator Review[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-E_jKwE4-Fc&feature=youtu.be”][vc_column_text]Today I wanted to dive into Website Hosting & why you need it to have an online business. Let’s get Into this Hostgator Review.
For some of us this is an exciting topic. For others this is about as exciting as Algebra back in high school.
Honestly though in order to have a website you MUST have hosting. This was so confusing for me when i started out.
I couldn’t quite grasp the concept that in order to have a website you need both a domain name AND hosting.
The best way I could describe it to myself, yes I self talk at times, is if you wanted a house you also needed property.
If we could think of the house as the domain, and the land on which the house is as the hosting.
Hopefully that’s made it as clear as mud! lol.
Having said that the next question is which host provider should you use? Everyone’s got their own reason as to why they use X company.
I’ve looked into & used a number of services over the years & the reason I chose to do a HostGator Review was because Hostgator is the service that always stands out to me.
There are many reasons why which i’ll delve into more technically but what i’m reminded of was an incident in 2010 when I was building a site.
I did something, only the Tech Gods know what, & I deleted my site! HFS!!!
Hours, Days, Weeks on this site & its GONE! I can’t even tell you the feeling but it was something like losing a pet.
After 2-3hrs of pure frustration I called HostGator & they walked me thru step by step & checked everything very thoroughly.
We tried a number of things & none of it worked. The tech member said leave it with them.
A few hours later, and probably a few minor heart attacks, I get a call….
Sam, we were able to recover your site from our automated back-up service. Your site is back online.
The relief! I can’t even explain. But this is something i’ll always remember & probably for a lifetime will recommend:
With that ‘not-so-cool’ story out of the way let’s get to some of the more technical reasons you should use HostGator for your hosting:
- Value for Money: You can host your site with HostGator for as little as $3.96 per month
- 13 Years in Business: Show’s longevity! They must be doing something right, don’t you think?
- 99.9% Up time: Meaning that when people come to your site it’ll be there for them to enjoy
- 24/7/365 Support: I’ve shared my story with you & that was just one. They really are there all the way
If you’re new to the online marketing world then having companies behind you that make all the difference. And thats why my Hostgator is my recommend Tool Of The Trade (LINK) as it pertains to your hosting needs.
Hostgator even have their own drag & drop website builder. I’m not suggesting you use it follow my wordpress tutorials so you can build it better yourself (a life long skill you can easily attain).
If you’re knew but already have hosting, and are looking at other options, you can easily migrate your site from where you are with to HostGator along with domain registrations from other registrars.
HostGator have a 0% risk Free offer as well:
For me personally those are more than enough reasons to join this kick ass service BUT you might be wondering if they’re so good where is the proof?

- #2 Best Web Hosting from Find My Host 2012
- Best Host from WordPress Hosting Review 2012
- Best Transfer Service from 2011 Best Free Website Transfer Service
