Anyone use hostgator? Just wondering, and how happy you are if so. I was just about to sign up, but thought I'd ask on here see what some of you think. I don't do Web design so want something easy, quite low cost, and effective for my (nude) images to go up on. Any replies here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks indecision

Chris.

yes, for years. great service, immediate online response if you have a problem, uptime pretty much 100%. The control panel is straightforward if you have a grasp of web essentials.

I have used a reseller package to get several websites hosted there.

Thanks Malcolm, that's reassuring to know. Think I'll give them ago this week most likely. Cheers.

Thanks for that Simon, looks good especially at the price too. But I just read the terms of use, and I think I would just about possibly fall fail of that. It says nothing pornographic, and I think some of my glamour nude images may be seen by some as that. Which is why I was asking about hostgator, they are ok with adult material, so I shouldn't need to worry about that. Thanks though, I've put that site in my bookmarks anyway.

hostgator is cool, if you running a shared package, it is good, next to no downtime (unlike dreamhost) they are even happy with you running a members site on those packages, but you have no access to the root, so you security options are limited.

only thing I will say is that their unlimited diskspace, seems to be limited to around 1TB hence now I have a deicated server with them, still very good, support is online, always nice to have a human at the other end that helps you out.
Kind Regards Paul http://www.paul-batterbury.com

Thanks Paul. I see no reason not to go with them then. I don't think I'd need as much as a TB of disc space anyway, at least not for now. Cheers, much appreciated.
