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.
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.
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.
A bit odd! Opened an account Friday night, paid with PayPal, installed wordpress, went to bed, tried to log on Saturday but was suspended because they wanted photo identification, sent that straight away, waited two days for reply, got another message asking what the content would be on my site, replied straight away and told them there would be some nudity, but no porn, just looked at my emails, they've refunded my money back through PayPal. Looks like I'll have to seek hosting elsewhere!
Just a quick note as an update, in case anyone read my last post. HG got back to me since I asked for a reason for the refund etc. They replied to let me know that they set up an invoice to pay again, and have activated my account. I nearly set up an account with Hostmetro last night, but thought I'd give it a little longer to see what happens.
