  • Hostgator Opinion

    The focus of my site is a VBulletin forum and a few static html pages. I am looking at getting a VPS server and hostgator have good prices. Does anyone use them?

    HostGator is indeed a very good choice.As a matter of fact I usually recommend it to all of my friends. But I honestly don't think that you should get a VPS just to host a vBulletin forum + a few static html pages. I'm actually hosting 5 forums that are of a medium size on one shared hosting account, and it's running really smooth.

    You can also take HG for a free ride, getting your first month for 1 cent. It basically saves you $9.94 off your hosting package using the coupon DISCOUNTHG

    Hope that helps

      I have to disagree with Hostgator being good, sorry. As a matter of fact, I am changing hosts this next weekend to get away from Hostgator. I found a new host that has way better prices AND support.

        I will personally never work with Hostgator. Possibly the worst host out there.

          I am not a big fan of hostgator.

          I would not bother with a vps unless you need something specific such as changing the minimum full text word length. I could not imagine having a vps at hostgator, but shared is 'ok' if you could put up with all the errors, erratic operation, and customer support that gives completely conflicting information depending on who you talk to.

                Servint. I did not realize how astonishingly bad hostgator was until I switched.


                Hostgator is about like godaddy with more standardized tools. HG has cPanel, last I checked godaddy had come custom made solution instead of cPanel (as I recall).

                I've forgotten most of the bad stuff that happened while with HG, but I do know my last day of prepaid hosting is over today. Perhaps I should go write a review while I still can.

                  How long has Servint been around? I got a better deal and price through VPSLatch. Twice the disk space, but they are fairly new.

                    I have absolutely no doubt that you could find less expensive vps providers, with more advertised features.

                          joshloe, I sent you an email answer to your email. You have nothing to say in return now? Typical hostgator support.

                              That's quite enough of bashing a hosting company that really isn't that bad of a host. There is nothing wrong with hostgator & they do have some nice shared & vps packages.
