HostGator Review Part 1: Why I Chose HostGator

May 16, 2012 by  Filed under: Web Hosting 

Recently I made the decision to build a website to help promote my business. This meant that I had to find a hosting company. At the time I had no idea how to choose one but I ultimately went with HostGator. This has proved to be a very good decision and I am completely satisfied with the service they have provided.

To be completely honest I really didn’t put as much thought into choosing a web host as I should have. In large part the reason that I choose HostGator is that they were the first one that came up when I did a search. That being said I did take the time to look at a couple of other hosting companies, the other ones on the first page of the search results, and this led me back to HostGator. The main reason that I chose them in the end was price.

HostGator offers rates that are quite a bit lower than the ones that were offered by their competitors. Since I was building my first website and was far from sure how successful it would be I really didn’t want to invest a lot of money in hosting so I took the cheapest option. I started to worry a little bit about this as visited some webmaster forums and found everybody telling me that I shouldn’t choose a web host based solely on price. The good news is that HostGator offers a lot more than just cheap prices.

The best thing that I have found about HostGator now that I have started to use them is that they make it very easy to build a website. This has proved to be a great benefit since I really didn’t want to have to pay somebody to build my site for me. It has proved to be no problem, all I have to do is add my content to the templates they provide. They even make it possible to customize the templates so that I can add things like my company logo to the site.

So far I am very happy with HostGator as my hosting company. I may have picked them for the wrong reasons but they have made building and maintaining my site very easy. They are very reliable and very helpful when I do have a problem. I have had no issues with them and would highly recommend them to anybody else building their first website.

HostGator are one of the best known web hosts in the business. The question is are they the best? You should read our HostGator Reviews to find out.
