HostGator – Cheap CPanel Web Hosting – Host Unlimited Domains

The title says it all. Those are the reasons that this site is now hosted by HostGator web hosting. If you tried visiting my site yesterday, you may have been presented with a blank page or a database error message. For that, I apologize.

My site had been hosted with Host4Profit as part of the PIPS program. I still like Host4Profit as their support is one of the best around, probably second to HostGator’s. But, I wanted to consolidate my sites and save a bit of money every month. You can’t blame me, can you?

The steps involved in transferring a complete website is a bit complicated, and having never done it before, I was a bit overwhelemed. Thankfully I had tons of support from fellow peers as well as both hosting company’s support departments. Without them, I would have never gotten it done.

With that said, I highly recommend HostGator for all of your cheap web host needs. They provide cpanel web hosting, which is a huge lifesaver, especially the one click WordPress setup. You can host unlimited domains without the price ever going up, which is real handy if you have quite a few sites or plan to build more than one. And, as I said before, their support is top notch. They’re very hard to beat in price, and the site up-time is also the best around.

After the switch, I was recommended to transfer my domain to NameCheap.com. What a lifesaver that was for me. I was looking at paying $25 or more for my domain renewal every year. With NameCheap, it’s less than $10 a year for domains. My transfer was even less. I highly recommend them!

Another awesome benefit about NameCheap, which I didn’t know about until I transferred my domain, is that they offer free WhoisGuard protection. This means the Whois information for your domain is guarded. Very cool and makes them even more worth it!

So, if you’re looking for reliable yet cheap web hosting, make the switch to HostGator. You can’t go wrong. And, I’ll even throw in a little bonus if you sign up through me. Sign up for a hosting account through my links, and I’ll setup a WordPress blog for you free. That’s my way of saying thanks. Then you can take what you’re learning here and apply it to your new site.

Are you using HostGator? What’s your feelings about NameCheap.com? Have you gone through the hassle of switching hosts?

I’d love to hear your thoughts…

I never used hostgator but almost all the bloggers I know uses them so I have no problem recommending them to a person. I been using namecheap for about 2 or 3 years now and love it. When buying new .com domains I always google for the discount code to get $0.88 off. I know not much but its a discount. I would have to say namecheap is the best out there when it comes to domains.

@Deneil Merritt, Welcome to the community, Deneil!

If you can switch to HostGator, I highly recommend doing so. Unless of course you’re super happy with your current host.

I agree… I love namecheap now that I’m using them. Any discount you can get is a plus, no matter how small.

@Alan Mater, HostGator doesn’t have what I want at the price I want it. I have a VPS hosting account with knownhost. I have tons of room to grow my business.

Yeah I agree with that. Any discount is always a plus.

@Deneil Merritt, I gotcha. For me, I could get the same quality hosting, but with more features for less money. So, it was a no-brainer to switch.

@Deneil Merritt, Thanks! It didn’t go without some tech issues, but it was well worth the switch.

Hey Alan!

If your’re looking for such hosting services I also recomment H9 (hostnine.com i think). the’re also cheap and the support isn’t that bad.

@Michal@krakow transfers, Thanks for the recommendation… I’ve never heard of them before. Now that my sites are consolidated to HostGator, I won’t ever need another host. I only pay $7.95 or something a month for unlimited domains. The support and uptime is excellent.

We had a test account with them and found their service to be very good.

Thanks,

I’ve found nothing but good quality service with Hostgator which is important when choosing a good web host.

@Matt@Kitchen Showroom Chicago, I agree Matt. Their support is excellent and the uptime has been 100%. I’d recommend them to anyone. Now that I’m using CPanel I truly love it. I don’t know how I went so long without it.

When I plan to have my next website I will surely have hosting with HostGator through your link. Hope the day is not far away. – Mike

Hostgator has built a very good fame over the years by offering scalable web hosting solutions with an unparallel support. To host unlimited domains under one web hosting account is a huge money saver because nowadays most webmasters onw and operatae more than two websites. If you don’t know nothing about hostgator but you are an experienced webmaster will be disappointed by looking first time their website. To be honest I don’t trust web hosting providers that claim that they offer unlimited resources with every plan. Unlimited is an unknown term for nature, how on earth could be possible for web hosting industry. I like more “natural” offers that give exactly what they say and don’t take down your website when you exceed certain bandwidth consumption. Before you register with this kind of web hosts read carefully their TOS and advice as many reviews you can.

@web hosting art, Thanks for your input. Are you saying that Host Gator could “take down your website” if you exceed some number that’s technically supposed to be unlimited? To me, unlimited means unlimited. I’ve read many reviews and never heard anything like this.

I have been using hostgator for 2 years without any issues what-so-ever. As im a blogger that creates many blogs on a weekly basis, i find hostgator easier to manage the installation of wordpress and the stats for each site that can all be managed from the same panel.

@Aden Clark @ cheap web hosting,

Totally agree. I will never change web hosts.

Thanks for the input, Aden.

Hostgator is simply the best. I switched from a local hosting service provider to hostgator. They did all the transfer thing for me but free. I never feel any down time . I recommend all.

You don’t mention how much your plan costs monthly on HostGator, and is it a shared or VPS?

HostGaotor I would say is a traditional host. There are now other options like hosting one application (like wordpress) at a time on Amazon EC2 and Heroku that works for advanced users. But the benefit is that it can infinitely scale which is fun to watch as you get hid from places like Reddit.

@George,

Hi George,

That’s good advice about using Amazon EC2 and Heroku. I didn’t know that.

My HostGator plan costs $9.95 a month. It’s shared hosting. Eventually I would like to move to a VPS, but at this point in time I don’t think that is necessary for me.

It looks I need to update this post a bit, huh? :)

I am also a very good fan of Hostgator, I came to know about them from Google as they combined launch a campaign which was focused on providing a website for every business having free first year subscription and that same time I also registered one for me and found it pretty good.

HostGator is one of my favourites, it’s efficient, cheap and has all the power tools you need. You’ve made the right choice, Alan!
